Nanoparticles added to fluids have been shown to increase the heat transfer of water, ethylene glycol, and engine lubricating oils. ACTA Technology's research expanded this earlier work to include adding nanoparticles to fluorinated liquids that are being used as refrigerants in vapor compression systems. ACTA Technology developed a stable, long-lasting nano solution that substantially increased the thermal conductivity of the nano-refrigerant. This new process resulted in a 192% improvement in thermal conductivity with only 1.3 % of the nanoparticles being added (wt. %). This new nano-refrigerant has the capability to improve the heat transfer in the system; thereby improving the energy efficiency of a typical vapor compression system.
ACTA is working on developing new products in two main areas:Nanofluids for vapor compression systems, proplyene glycol and uv activated systems. MEMS devices for measuring blood clotting times and for energy harvesting.
