Abstract [en]

The use of supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) as an apolar solvent has been known for decades. It offers a greener approach than, e.g., hexane or chloroform, when such solvents are needed. The use of scCO2 in microsystems, however, has only recently started to attract attention. In microfluidics, the flow characteristics need to be known to be able to successfully design such components and systems. As supercritical fluids exhibit the exciting combination of low viscosity, high density, and high diffusion rates, the fluidic behavior is not directly transferrable from aqueous systems. In this paper, three flow regimes in the scCO2–liquid water two-phase microfluidic system have been mapped. The effect of both total flow rate and relative flow rate on the flow regime is evaluated. Furthermore, the droplet dynamics at the bifurcating exit channel are analyzed at different flow rates. Due to the low viscosity of scCO2, segmented flows were observed even at fairly high flow rates. Furthermore, the carbon dioxide droplet behavior exhibited a clear dependence on both flow rate and droplet length.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a reusable microdispenser intended for continuous flow dispensing of variable and controlled volumes of liquid against high back-pressures. The microdispenser consists of two active valves and a dispenser chamber, all actuated by the volume change associated with the solid-to-liquid phase transition of paraffin wax. It is fabricated using stainless steel sheets, a flexible printed circuit board, and a polyimide membrane. All are covered with Parylene C for insulation and fusion bonding at assembly. A finite element method (FEM) model of the paraffin actuator is used to predict the resulting flow characteristics. The results show dispensing of well-defined volumes of 350 and 540 nL, with a good repeatability between dispensing sequences, as well as reproducibility between devices. In addition, the flow characteristics show no back-pressure dependence of the dispensed flow in the interval 0.5--2.0 MPa. The FEM model can be used to predict the flow characteristics qualitatively

Abstract [en]

During the last fifteen years, miniaturised paraffin actuation has evolved through the need of a simple actuation principle, still able to deliver large strokes and high actuation forces at small scales. This is achieved by the large and rather incompressible volume expansion associated with the solid-to-liquid phase transition of paraffin. The common approach has been to encapsulate the paraffin by a stiff surrounding that directs the volume expansion towards a flexible membrane, which deflects in a directed stroke. However, a number of alternative methods have also been used in the literature. The most common applications to this date have been switches, positioning actuators, and microfluidic valves and pumps. This review will treat the historical background, as well as the fundamentals in paraffin actuation, including material properties of paraffin. Besides reviewing the three major groups of paraffin actuator applications; actuators, valves, and pumps, the modelling done on paraffin actuation will be explored. Furthermore, a section focusing on fabrication of paraffin microactuators is also included. The review ends with conclusions and outlook of the field, identifying unexplored potential of paraffin actuation.

Abstract [en]

Presented in this paper is a finite-element-method-based model for phase change material actuators, modeling the active material as a fluid as opposed to a solid. This enables the model to better conform to localized loads and offering the opportunity to follow material movement in enclosed volumes. Modeling, simulation, and analysis of an electrothermally activated paraffin microactuator have been conducted. The paraffin microactuator used for the analysis in this study exploits the large volumetric expansion of paraffin upon melting, which, combined with its low compressibility in the liquid state, allows for high hydraulic pressures to be generated. The purpose of this study is to supply a geometry-independent model of such a microactuator through the implementation of a fluid model rather than a solid one, which has been utilized in previous studies. Numerical simulations are conducted at different frequencies of the heating source and for different geometries of the microactuator. The results are compared with the empirical data obtained on a close to identical paraffin microactuator, which clearly show the advantages of a fluid model instead of a solid-state approximation.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a micropump system with four integrated paraffin actuated pumps: Two mobile phase pumps and two sample injector pumps. The mobile phase pumps are evaluated by their ability to deliver a stable, low-ripple flow to be used in chip-based high performance liquid chromatography. It is shown that the two mobile phase pumps can be driven in combined operation with an induced offset to significantly lower flow fluctuations.

Abstract [en]

This work presents a latchable thermohydraulic microactuator for use in high-pressure valves, e.g. for oceanic sampling in missions of long duration. Mounted on a miniature submersible, it can be used in confined spaces to explore previously unreachable environments. However, the device can be used in any high-pressure application where long duration open and/or closed valve states are required, and power consumption is an issue. The actuator is fabricated using standard batch-processes as photochemical machining, wet etching and photolithography. The actuation and latching mechanisms are both thermohydraulic, using solid-to-liquid phase transition of paraffin for actuation and of a low melting point alloy for latching. Focus of this work is on the endurance of the actuator to facilitate a bistable valve. The actuator managed to keep a deflected position for almost 50 hours to the load equivalent to 1.8 MPa applied pressure, after which the experiment was aborted. No pressure dependence was discovered in the latching losses, i.e. the difference in deflection before and after the actuator is powered off. Furthermore, the effect of intermixing of paraffin and the low melting point alloy was evaluated.

Abstract [en]

In marine biology, it is useful to collect water samples when exploring the distribution and diversity of microbial communities in underwater environments. In order to provide, e.g., a miniaturized submersible explorer with the capability of collecting microorganisms, a compact sample enrichment system has been developed. The sampler is 30 mm long, 15 mm wide, and just a few millimetres thick. Integrated in a multilayer steel, polyimide and glass construction is a microfluidic channel with piezoelectric transducers, where microorganism and particle samples are collected and enriched, using acoustic radiation forces for gentle and labelless trapping. High-pressure, latchable valves, using paraffin as the actuation material, at each end of the microfluidic channel keep the collected sample pristine. A funnel structure raised above the surface of the device directs water into the microfluidic channel as the vehicle propels itself or when there is a flow across its hull. The valves proved leak proof to a pressure of 2.1 MPa for 19 hours and momentary pressures of 12.5 MPa, corresponding to an ocean depth of more than 1200 metres. By reactivating the latching mechanism, small leakages through the valves could be remedied, which could thus increase the leak-less operational time. Fluorescent particles, 1.9 µm in diameter, were successfully trapped in the microfluidic channel at flow rates up to 15 ml min-1, corresponding to an 18.5 cm s-1 external flow rate of the sampler. In addition, liquid-suspended GFP-marked yeast cells were successfully trapped.
