Ultrasonic Liquid Processing – Sonochemistry

Ultrasonic Liquid Processing, Sonochemistry, and Extraction

Flow Through or Static Cylindrical Reactor Systems:

For organic or inorganic material processing:

  • Food processing
  • Sonochemistry
  • Reaction Acceleration – cavitation accelerates chemical and physical


  • Fine Particle

    Dispersion – e.g. nanoparticle processing

  • Disruption and Cell Lysing – will break open biological tissues and

    cells to extract enzymes and DNA, prepare vaccines.

    This technology provides a method for

    ultrasonically lysing cells and spores in a liquid flowing continuously or

    intermittently through a cylindrical reactor.

  • Homogenization – making uniform mixtures of liquids or liquid


  • Emulsification – processing foods, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.

  • Dissolution – dissolving solids in solvents.

  • Degassing – removing gases from solutions without heat or vacuum.

  • Inline pipe cleaning, removes

    scale or build/up without disassembly.

  • Cylindrical 360° internally radiating chamber.
  • Internal or external liquid atomizing or powder making


A new method of continuous or intermittent inline ultrasonic processing for any

liquid material or food that requires ultrasonic treatment. Single or

multiple transducers are connected to custom clamps designed to fit nearly any size tube

or pipe constructed of aluminum, stainless steel, or titanium. Our unique

MMM technology offers a highly efficient transfer of ultrasonic energy to

the metal pipe or tube. The pipe / tube becomes a radiating element allowing

internal or external material treatment.

These assemblies will turn nearly any suitable pipe or

tube into a highly efficient ultrasonic

reactor. Longer pipe sections may be driven with multiple clamps

powered by one or more MMM generators.

Key Features:

  • Flexible system designs for any length of pipe.
  • May be adapted to most any diameter pipe or tube

    (e.g. 25mm to 150 mm).

  • Will drive most any pipe thickness (e.g.

    1mm to 30mm) at high power.

  • Flow through design allows easy adaptation to

    lab and industrial systems.

  • Long wave guides options allow for very high

    temperature applications.

  • Wide ranging power options offer:
    • Low power non-cavitation treatment
    • High power strong cavitation treatment
    • 0 to 100% power control
    • Advanced modulation techniques to modify and

      improve acoustic effects.

    • Standard systems from 300 watts to 2,000 watts. Custom

      systems to 120,000 watts.

  • Simplified one-piece tube design without seams or

    joints allows easy internal cleaning and sterilization.

Special Clamp Systems

  • Glass, Quartz, or Plastic Tube Chambers:

    • Using special interface materials

      and clamp designs we can apply ultrasonic energy directly to a glass tube for

      treatment of liquid materials or chemicals.

    • Alternatively glass tubes may be

      submersed into a water filled stainless steel pipe system for indirect 360°

      ultrasonic treatment.

  • Active Ultrasonics provides consulting services and

    custom reactor designs.

  • High amplitude probe flow cells
  • Unrestricted flow-through cylindrical systems
