The (3) electrical assemblies described in
the Ultrasonic Processing Equipment Construction Details Section need to be
placed inside a protected environment. The long term operational success of an
ultrasonic processing installation is dependent upon how the electrical
components are packaged and protected.
The features listed below covers the
majority of the installation requirements. Various features can be installed
into your system to maximize installation success. We have found that our
systems built with the proper packaging methods will operate year-after-year
with predictable performance.
Electrical Enclosures The ultrasonic generator module(s) is (are)
mounted inside an electrical enclosure to protect your personnel and our
electronics. The enclosure contains the ultrasonic generators, system control
circuits, and ancillary electronic & electrical hardware. We offer several
different types of enclosures to accommodate the requirements of the
The majority of our systems are built with
either NEMA-1, NEMA-4 or NEMA-12 generator/electrical enclosures, (IP20, IP66 or
IP55, respectively). The actual enclosure rating is determined by the cooling
method used for cooling the electronics located within. We offer ambient air
cooling, water cooling coils or refrigerated cabinet coolers for total
Small ultrasonic systems typically have
the generator mounted inside a table-top cabinet. We also offer wall-mount and
floor mounted enclosures for our multiple generator systems. The properly rated
enclosure will effectively protect personnel and isolate environmental hazards
from our sensitive electronic components.
CE Compliant Systems.
Most of our Ultrasonic Processing Products can be
packaged for export to Europe. We build our systems with IEC/EC wiring
methodologies and components to simplify equipment familiarity and service.
Sound Abatement Enclosures
Our Sound Abatement Technology allows us to build
high-power Ultrasonic Reactors and meet local sound/noise requirements. We offer
several different styles of enclosures for our diversified product line. The
Sound Enclosure may by equipped with quick-assess hinged doors, utility panels,
ancillary hardware and/or devices. We can easily customize an enclosure to match
your installation requirements, conveyance line locations and safety concerns.
Water Cooled Transducers
We can equip our ultrasonic hardware with
transducers which are wired with a sealed electrical package. The sealed
electrical package is our preferred wiring method for wet and hostile dust
installation environments. There are no exposed electrical terminals or
junctions that could create electrical shorts and compromise reliability. The
sealed electrical package on some systems can be operated dry without
compromising system performance.
We can build our ultrasonic hardware to meet your
explosion-proof installation requirements. Some of our ultrasonic products are
explosion-proof due to system design and packaging methodologies. We prefer to
air/gas purge our large flat plate resonators to assure absolute protection and
to maximize acoustic performance.
If the installation site requires this
degree of protection, we will be glad to discuss the engineering details for
