Microflown Mission statement

Based upon its unique MEMS technology based acoustic particle velocity sensor, Microflown Technologies develops and markets highly innovative products and  testing services in the field of sound and vibration.

The Microflown

The Microflown is the worlds first and only MEMS technology based sensor that can measure the acoustic particle velocity. By measuring the temperature difference in the cross section of two extremely thin platinum wires placed in parallel, this extremely fast mass flow sensor is capable of monitoring the movement of air particles.  Any sound field is described completely by both the (scalar) value sound pressure and the (vector) value acoustic particle velocity. Understandably, acoustic testing becomes much easier if both acoustic quantities can be measured.

Applications

Microflown Technologies offers superior applications in the field of sound and vibration testing for:

  • sound source localisation
  • airborne transfer path analysis and panel contribution analysis
  • in situ determination of materials acoustic properties
  • non contact vibration measurements / modal analysis
  • micropore leaktesting

Markets

Microflown Technologies develops and markets innovative (acoustic) testing techniques to a wide range of market segments such as aerospace, automotive, appliances, manufacturing industries and defence industry. Within the industry, Microflown based testing methods are used from the development of new prototypes till the end of line acoustic quality testing during manufacturing.
