The nFluids Advantage
nFluids designs and manufactures nanoparticles using a proprietary bottom-up approach that gives us total control over the size, shape, concentration and functionality of the end product. Drawing from our decades of experience in chemistry, engineering and material science, nFluids’ goal is to provide bespoke, cost-effective, and environmentally-friendly nanoparticles to solve a wide range of industrial challenges.
Nanotechnology deals with materials at the extreme side of scale — between 1 and 100 nm. At the nanoscale, there are more atoms located on the outside of the particle that are available to interact with other species relative to atoms contained within the bulk of the particle, expressed as a Specific Surface Area (SSA). This gives rise to unique physical, chemical, mechanical, and optical properties of nanomaterials that do not naturally occur at the macro size scale.
SPECIFIC SURFACE AREA VS SIZE
Products and Technology
nFluids continues to push toward lowering the cost of nanoparticle manufacturing process so we can deliver premium performance at commodity prices. Our nCore™ platform technology is a scalable, bottom-up process that uses inexpensive feedstock materials and fine-tuned proprietary chemistry to produce a variety of bespoke nanoparticles on a full industrial scale for our clients in industry and academia. nCore™ forms a basis of our first two commercial products for drilling fluids.
nFluids technology is a true platform technology, in that there are multiple potential applications not only in oil and gas but also in a variety of other industries, such as agriculture, composites, lubrication, coatings and others. Explore how nanotechnology can bring next-level performance to your application.
What Our Clients Have to Say
“... the addition of Nano has made nLube the best lubricant I’ve seen in the Bakken.”
“nLube has made it possible to drill these three mile laterals under 16k ft/lbs of Torque.”
“...now we can keep torque under 14k while drilling even at BHT over 290 degrees.”
“Lower concentration needed, lower lube costs and lower torque all wins in my book.”
“nLube keeps everyone happy with low torque and drag while keeping costs low.”
"With nForcer and nLube products, the nFluids team continue to develop nano based products that meet our clients needs whilst providing high quality after-market support."
