Nowadays, Ultrasonic Homogenizers have found many applications in several fields. Ultrasonic homogenizers are used for purposes such as mixing, dispersing and emulsifying, the goals are to reduce small particles, droplets in a liquid, to improve uniformity and stability of the mixture. By decreasing the mean particle diameter, the number of individual particles are increased. Therefore, the average particle distance decreases and the particle surface area increases as well. Ultrasonic homogenizers work great compared to conventional homogenization methods with the following properties:
- Ultrasonic homogenizers produce small particles / droplets and a narrow distribution curve.
- Ultrasonic homogenizers can handle high solids concentrations.
- Ultrasonic homogenizers prepare stable suspensions, dispersions and emulsions.
- Ultrasonic homogenizers are precisely controllable that is an important process parameters (e.g., amplitude, power, time, temperature, and pressure) can be influenced and adjusted.
- Ultrasonic homogenizers are energy efficient, user friendly and safe to use.
Ultrasonic homogenizers are very effective in reducing soft and hard particles. Cavitation is one of the important factors in homogenization. When liquids are exposed to intense ultrasound process, sound waves propagate through the liquid and cause alternating high and low pressure cycles (approximately 20,000 cycles per second).
