Ultrasonic Glass Reactor Features Two Feedports
Hielscher Ultrasonics launches a new glass flow cell that’s designed to offer clear visibility of the cavitational process. The ultrasonic glass reactor vessel features two feedports on the bottom side, which are for the supply of the material into the reactor vessel. By the discharge port on the left side above, the fluid exits the flow cell after passing the cavitational “hot spot” generated at the sonotrode.
In this hot spot, the medium is treated by the intense cavitational force. This enables the various processes, such as homogenizing, dispersing, emulsifying, sono-chemical and sono-catalytical effects. With its two supply ports, the ultrasonic glass reactor is suited to emulsify by ultrasonication as it can be fed with two immiscible fluids.
The glass flow cell can be adapted by a special flange to the sonotrodes of the UIP500hd, UIP1000hd, UIP1500hd and UIP2000hd. The is an adjuvant accessory, especially if the visibility of the cavitational process is of interest.
