    Welcome to PF, LP.
    I'm going to assume that MR means magnetoreactive. If that is incorrect, ignore the next sentence.
    The exact nature of the magnetic fields would have to be specified, as would the nature of the flow pattern within the tube.
    That's all that I've got. You'll have to wait for others to respond in order to obtain a decent answer.

    Actually it is not MAGNETOREACTIVE but it is MAGNETORHEOLOGICAL.. Sorry for the insufficient message..

    That's okay. I'll just slink on back home now...
