Reactor Construction Techniques
Our Ultrasonic Processing hardware fall into two basic groups; large Flat Plate Resonators and point source Ultrasonic Power Probes. Each group differs in acoustic performance, production capacity, required maintenance and the ability to be scaled into a large production system.
The reactor style best suited for your installation requirements is determined by the ultrasonic performance necessary, the volumetric processing capacity required, and the method in which your material is passed through the Ultrasonic Processing Chamber.
Single Frequency Systems
This Ultrasonic Immersible illustrates the essential elements of an Ultrasonic Processing System. a) The process solution must be in intimate contact with the Diaphragm Plate. b) The transducers must vibrate at a constant and consistent peak-to-peak displacement. c) A sound field of longitudinal pressures waves located in front of the Diaphragm Plate is the ultrasonic processing zone where useful work is performed. d) The ultrasonic hardware is packaged to prevent process solution contamination.
The processing cavity located between the two opposing diaphragm plates is uniformly energized across the width and gap. The gap between the (2) diaphragm plates determines the Reactor's acoustic density (Watts/liter). The process reaction kinetics and throughput requirements define the ultrasonic power level and dwell time needed for process scale-up.
