Graphene-xt and DIIEM To Conduct Research on New Fluids

Graphene-XT and the Department of Industrial, Electronic and Mechanical Engineering (DIIEM) of the Roma TRE University have signed a framework agreement to conduct research activities on new generation graphene-based hydraulic fluids.

Experimental activities on pumps and high-pressure hydraulic systems are underway at the DIIEM hydraulic and pneumatic laboratory, coordinated by prof. Fulvio Palmieri

The first experimental campaigns have highlighted huge effects of hydraulic fluids containing exfoliated graphene on the energy performance of hydraulic gear pumps.

Hydraulic fluids containing exfoliated graphene allow significant increases on both torque- and volumetric efficiency, under particularly harsh operating conditions (high pressure and low pump shaft speed), unveiling new perspectives in the power management of hydraulic systems.
