Sonic Shoes

The ultrasonic Sonic Shoe is a small vibrating plate assembly ideal for acoustically activating a confined space.  Each Sonic Shoe is a powerful compact ultrasonic Transducer Assembly capable of accelerating reactions, enhancing surface wetting, and/or foaming of carbonated beverages.  The Shoe's variable ultrasonic power and variable ultrasonic frequency control allows the operator to adjust and optimize operating parameters.

The Sonic Shoe is built to be slid along the material requiring ultrasonic treatment.  The Shoe may be bolted, glued or welded to a reaction chamber for semi-permanent installations.  You may even squeeze the product requiring ultrasonic treatment between opposing Sonic Shoes to maximize the ultrasonic intensity for truly demanding applications.


The Sonic Shoe, M/N: SS-902-2, consists of a pair of small vibrating plate 
assemblies with a maximum power of 500 Watts. 
Our magnetostrictive transducer is silver-brazed to the Shoe's sliding surface creating a solid-state assembly.  This assembly  may be vibrated, experience high velocity impacts, tolerate wet operation, and operate for  years without deterioration in acoustic performance.  Our solid-state silver-brazed transducer  is built without threaded fasteners providing years of reliable service.


The Sonic Shoe is effective in processing:

Beer foaming prior to capping, (to expel O2  from the beer bottle to enhance shelf life)
Cleaning the individual pores of a surface with an optional flushing manifold
Acceleration of the curing cycle for epoxy adhesives, while minimizing void cavities
Defoaming and Compaction of suspended solids within a slurry
Impregnation of a liquid into a moving web
Compaction of molded compounds 



The Sonic Shoe, M/N: SS-902-SLM.  This Sonic Shoe, SS-902-SLM, is equipped with a Spring Loaded Diaphragm Plate Mounting.  The Spring Loaded Diaphragm Plate provides constant pressure to the Transducer Assembly for maximizing contact with the material requiring ultrasonic treatment.


The Sonic Shoe is maintenance free and built to operate continuously, (ie 100% duty cycle).  This system will handle large volumes of material, without degradation to ultrasonic processing performance.  The diaphragm plate design allows the system to be scaled up (or down) to meet your processing demands without compromising performance.
