Our MISSION is to help our customers achieve their optimization targets and enable the implementation of new, improved production methods based on in-process measurement of rheology.
Fluidan is committed to making rheology monitoring easy.
Our VISION is to make industrial rheology control easy worldwide. Our services and products set the standard for efficient and automated manufacture of “thick liquids” and are implemented by producers as they seek to make more high-quality products from fewer resources.
Dozens of companies making paints, detergents, lotions, foods, and other “thick liquids” have confirmed the need for automated rheology monitoring. The RheoStream sensor will enable them to control manufacturing processes better and reduce the cost of rework or waste.
Most companies have robust processes but may still have an optimization potential of a few percent. Other companies have very troublesome processes for some of their products and report wasting or reworking 25-50% of products due to rheology issues. Fluidan is determined to help them realize the savings potential – saving time, resources, and money.
Founded in 2014 by the inventor of RheoStream®, Physicist Ph.D. Fridolin Okkels and by CEO Anders L. Østergård, Fluidan set out to develop a robust and easy-to-use instrument, that would essentially operate as a “rheology sensor,” albeit in a bigger box than most common sensors.
Fridolin Okkels, Founder
For many years Fridolin Okkels had worked on research and innovation in microfluidics, understanding liquids flow in small channels, including consulting with companies who experienced challenges when working with liquids. Recognizing these challenges led him to the fundamental idea of how to make life easier for such companies.
Anders L. Østergård, CEO
Anders L. Østergård is a chemical engineer and business developer and the driver of innovation and business in household care products and food, including rheology modifying ingredients.
Located at the DTU Science Park (Danish Technical University, north of Copenhagen), Fluidan has added a dedicated and passionate team, counting competencies in instrument development, software development, application development, and sales.
In 2018, RheoStream® obtained CE compliance, which allowed for a growing list of customer projects and sales in the target industries: Paint/Coatings, Household Care, and Personal Care.
Fluidan is financed by private and semi-public investors as well as by grants from Danish funds.
