Ultrasound & Cavitation

ultrasonic cavitation

Ultrasounds are sound waves with frequencies above the human auditory range (20 – 100 kHz). The ultrasound applications are based on the physical phenomenon of cavitation

which may be induced in any liquid medium.

The sound waves cause the microscopic bubbles present in the natural liquids to expand (during phases A and B of low pressure) and contract until they implode (during phases C and D of high pressure).  The formation and implosion of bubbles (cavitation process) is produced thousands of times per second.

SHOCKWAVES TRANSFER KINETIC ENERGY.   APPLICATIONS

  • Cleans organic/inorganic surfaces and porous internal structures, joints, fissures (by disintegrating polluting substances)
  • Eliminates/separates microfilms formed by Brettanomyces and other micro-organisms
  • Kills micro-organisms (by breaking cellular walls) present on surfaces and in liquids, porous internal structures, joints and fissures
  • Reduces the size and variability of particles in liquid suspensions
  • Accelerates fermentation

ACOUSTIC WAVES TRANSFER HEAT AND MASS.    APPLICATIONS

  • Improves the extraction rates of colour /aroma / nutrients / by-products
  • Eliminates particles of matter (tartrates, living or dead microbial cells) of pores, joints and fissures
  • Reduces undesired pasteurization effects

VIBRATION REDUCES FRICTION ON THE SURFACE.  APPLICATIONS

Prevents undesired substances from adhering to machines and membrane filters
