Ultrasonic barbell for extraction

Conventional extraction methods are time-consuming, labour-intensive and can sometimes be hazardous to the operator’s health when using organic solvents. Ultrasound technology reduces the use of organic solvents, speeds up the extraction time and is a more eco-friendly method with less environmental pollution.

High-efficiency ultrasonic horn for liquid processing

The ultrasonic horn IUIP2500 designed by Cheersonic is an adaptable ultrasonic device for the industrial processing of liquid. The most representative process of ultrasound equipment is the extraction of natural active ingredients, which is widely used in traditional Chinese medicine preparation. Furthermore, ultrasonication is a proven technology for nanoparticles dispersion, a process broadly applied in emulsions preparation in industries such as health care, cosmetics, and food. The ultrasonic horn is a device with a transducer that transmits ultrasound energy to a liquid. When high-power ultrasound waves touch the liquid, cycles of high-and low-pressure are generated. In the low-pressure stage, small vapour bubbles are formed before they collapse. This phenomenon of bubble formation, growth and implosion is called acoustic cavitation. By breaking intermolecular bonds, the penetration of an active ingredient into a solvent is easier, and it allows for speeding up extraction time.

Employed for a lot of procedures such as emulsification, homogenization, extraction, dispersion, wet-milling and disintegration, ultrasonic barbells are mostly used for liquid treatment. Cheersonic has two types of ultrasonic horns, a prism, and a barbell, as a part of the laboratory, bench, and industrial-scale liquid treatment equipment. The ultrasonic horn can be customized according to customer needs in regard to the process. Power can range from 500watt up to 5000watt. Ultrasonic horns are made of titanium that is the most widely used alloy for its good acoustic transmission properties.
