Ultrasonic Liquid Processing
What Are Important Processes In Ultrasonic Liquid Processing?
Ultrasonic Liquid Processing is characterized by a large number of processes. This is because there is a wide range of liquids and chemicals. Some of these processes are a preparation of emulsions, preparation of dispersions, homogenizing of liquids, acceleration of various chemical reactions, atomization, degassing of liquids, extraction of several substances from organic sources, disruption of cells and other chemical processes.
The advantage of ultrasonic processing in liquid processing is that it is faster and more thorough. It can produce a higher vibration which means more results and better output. The cost of processing is reduced by the use of Ultrasonic Liquid Processing machines.
Ultrasonic processing is utilized in textile factories, soft drink factories, pharmaceutical companies and other factories where emulsification, homogenizing and dispersing are used in production or research. Ultrasonic Homogenizers, ultrasonic emulsifiers, ultrasonic mixers, ultrasonic suspenders are the various ways Ultrasonics are used in these places. Ultrasonic emulsifiers are used to create an emulsion in paint factories by the use of cavitations. A critical, important application of ultrasonic is it has numerous uses in textiles, soft drink, pharmaceutical cosmetics and other industries for emulsification of mineral and essential oils, antibiotic dispersions, lotions, etc. In the laboratory, sonochemical reactors produce intense cavitations which are used in chemical processes. These intense vibrations are also used in the production of cosmetics, food, ink, paint, coating and wood treatment.
Ultrasonic liquid processing machines are used in the extraction of oil from algae. It also helps to reduce the time used for solvent extraction from plants, leaves, herbs, etc. The ultrasonic extraction equipment is specialized to work with other extraction vessels and without any special requirements.
Ultrasonic is also used for crystallization in pharmaceutical and chemical companies. Ultrasonic processes involve the output of high pressure, frequency and sound from transducers. When this ultrasonic process is adapted to the nucleation of organic or inorganic supersaturated solutions, these vibrations serve to accelerate large and uniform crystal growth. The cavitation produced by the ultrasonic processor also breaks up and scatters individual crystals to form nuclei.
Ultrasonic liquid processors are used in fuel industries for the production of biofuels, degassing and for crude oil desulphurization. They are also used in the reduction of particle cells in lacquer, powders, paints, minerals even chocolates which have been reduced for use in liquers. Pharmaceutical companies use these particle cell reducers on an industrial scale for the great use it has in producing drugs.
Ultrasonic is also used to enhance the disintegration of biological cells. It helps to extract the cell content in enzymes, liquids and viruses and is also used in the preparation of anti-genetically active extractions. Intense cavitation helps to rupture the cell walls and releases the cell content into the surrounding liquid. Ultrasonic disintegration is relatively safe for the substances and the people working on them. Ultrasonic is used in the treatment of water by reducing the level of bactericide and disinfecting the water by dispersion of accumulated bacteria or algae. Whatever process ultrasonic is used, it is sure to be fast and efficient.
