Oil-based EMG Series Ferrofluid

Ferrotec’s oil-based EMG Series ferrofluids are most typically used for applications requiring low viscosity ferrofluids, similar to that of water, but do not tolerate water-based ferrofluid. Ferrotec’s oil-based EMG series ferrofluids are usually based on light hydrocarbon carrier oils that have higher volatility than our APG type fluids but viscosities closer to that of water. We offer a family of oil-based EMG ferrofluid options with unique magnetic and particle properties to meet a broad range of requirements.

Domain Detection » Like Ferrotec’s water-based EMG series, oil-based EMG series ferrofluids can also used for the study of magnetic domain structures.

Sensors, Switches and Solenoids » Ferrotec’s oil-based EMG series ferrofluids can be used to improve performance in applications that include inclinometers, accelerometers and flow meters, tilt, vibration, pressure and level sensors, and various switches.

Biomedical Applications » Ferrotec’s oil-based EMG series ferrofluids are occasionally used in some in-vitro biological experimentation.
