What's New in the World of nFluids

We are currently in the process of commercializing the technology and have achieved the following milestones:

  • By working closely with our industry partners, we have successfully validated the 1st generation nForcer™ technology performance by conducting nine field tests.
  • We have taken a complicated 10-stage manufacturing process, reduced it to 4 stages, increased the concentration from 5% to 20%, and then scaled it up to commercial quantities. The result is improved performance while ensuring the product can be manufactured in any toll blender worldwide.
  • This has reduced the cost by 60% which is critical in a commodity-based additives market. Additionally, we have taken this a step further and are in the final stages of developing a dry product with > 70% nanoparticle concentration through a joint development relationship, which would have particular advantages for offshore drilling.
  • With this new 2nd generation, high performing, nForcer™ product we are ready to validate the technology in pilot testing and commence commercial operations.
