The present study aims to develop and discuss the availability of the Magneto Hydrodynamics Minipump (MHD) as a miniaturizative part specified for precise manufacturing or medical application. Based on the MHD theory, an available working current (1.8A) induced by lower voltage (0-12V) and weaker magnetic intensity (0.04T) meets the need in mini-system operation. However, precise estimations of working capacity, maximum head, dynamic head, and static head in various electrolyte concentrations are necessary. Furthermore, this work also provides a simplified analytic model with a static balance between Lorentz force, surface tension force, and body force. Compared with analytic solutions and experimental results, the static head depends on the operating voltage, and the higher dynamics head is produced instantly in the working medium of NaCl H2O which is more appropriate for the impulse pump.
