Our engineering and scientific staff are ready to help you use nanomaterials to improve your products today!  Here is yet another example in the academic literature, using silicon nanoparticles in thermal fluids.

One of the Meliorum Technologies silicon nanoparticle and metal oxide nanoparticle applications having shown consistently successful results in the academic literature is the incorporation of these nanomaterials in molten salt eutectic solutions.  These molten salt eutectic solutions are used for many purposes; many of the applications leverage their high levels of specific heat capacity (i.e. the amount of energy needed to increase the temperature of a fixed mass or volume of the fluid).  Recently, solar thermal energy conversion systems, for example, require the st...

We would like to highlight a recent article which discusses silicon dioxide nanofluid performance for enhancement of specific heat capacity.  In particular, the performance of our silicon dioxide nanofluids have been shown to have, on average, a significant thermal performance improvement compared to other suppliers.  This is a result of our highly controlled engineering process, which has been designed specifically for this purpose.  We are pleased to see another third-party comparison of the performance of these materials that yet again validates Meliorum's superior performance in these heat transfer applications.

As many are aware, Meliorum has spent the past several years developing a homogeneous silicon nanoparticle ink suitable for various semiconductor microelectronic and related printing applications.  We have worked very closely with numerous customers and collaborators -- in their own application spaces -- to identify the most relevant design parameters required for them to achieve their application goals.  We are pleased to have achieved a significant basis of understanding of what parameters and parameter values are most significant for the various applications in which these inks are most often deployed.  Various fluid parameters such as viscosity and jettability, thermal properties related to sintering mechanisms, and more conventional properties such as surface chemistry,...
