About ISM

•  Introduction to ISM
•  Our Team

Industrial Sonomechanics (ISM) specializes in liquid processing by high-power ultrasound. We offer high-intensity laboratory, bench and industrial-scale ultrasonic processors used as ultrasonic homogenizers, sonicators, ultrasonic mixers, sonochemical reactors and ultrasonic wet milling processors in a wide variety of industries. Our equipment can be used for the production of nanoparticles, such as nanoemulsions, nanocrystals, liposomes and wax emulsions, as well as for wastewater purification, degassing, extraction of plant oil, production of biofuels, crude oil desulphurization, cell disruption, polymer and epoxy processing, adhesive thinning, and many other processes. We serve pharmaceutical, cosmetic, water, food, ink, paint, coating, wood treatment, metalworking, nanocomposite, pesticide, fuel, wood product and many other industries.

High ultrasonic amplitudes able to generate intense acoustic cavitation are required for most processes. Unlike conventional ultrasonic devices, ISM`s patented Barbell horn-based ultrasonic systems make it possible to produce extremely high ultrasonic amplitudes at any scale, from laboratory to industrial, guaranteeing reproducible results after scale-up. Our experienced consultants will be glad to help optimize your process and implement it in your production environment.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

"As former CEO of Markisches Werk Halver (MWH) I have had the opportunity to work with ISM, its staff, and its patented Barbell Horn ultrasound technology for several years. MWH is a leading manufacturer and technology development company located in central Germany. During my tenure there, we identified ISM as a company with strong management and technical expertise, together with a unique and sustainable technology advantage. ISM's Barbell Horn technology allows large horn output diameters in combination with high horn gains to optimally match the transducer to the load, enabling high intensity laboratory setups to be implemented on an industrial scale. MWH supplied ultrasound equipment to SulphCo, Inc., an Amex listed company with a technology for using ultrasound to remove sulfur from crude oil and distillates. As a long-time director on SulphCo's Board, I was able to witness first hand that ISM's approach and patented technology were instrumental in evolving from a laboratory scale to a commercial scale in this demanding application. As a technically trained engineer, I believe that ISM has the experience and the technology applicable in multiple industries, including algae processing for biofuels manufacturing, emulsion and dispersion production, wastewater treatment, etc. I look forward to many new great things from ISM and would recommend them without hesitation."

"We recently purchased a BSP-1200 system from ISM and were very impressed with its performance. The word got out, and one of our customers came to our facility to perform CBD-oil emulsion tests with the system. Though he was initially skeptical, after running the machine for only 1 min he got far better results to what he was able to achieve in over an hour with his conventional ultrasonic processor. He absolutely loved the BSP-1200 and bought it off from us that same day to take to his facility in CA! We have now decided to go straight for ISM's production-scale ISP-3000 processor."

"We found Industrial Sonomechanics to be a company that would not only listen to and implement our ideas, but also bring their own knowledge and creativity to the table. Over the years, we have worked with ISM on several projects that required significant amounts of R&D, process development and data analysis. With their professionalism and expertise, ISM consistently exceeded our expectations. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to turn their scientific ideas into reality."

 Guy Chiattello, Performance Biolubes

"ISM supplied us with their industrial-scale ultrasonic processor, ISP-3000, which we have been using to make nutraceutical and cosmetic products, as well as for essential oil extraction and several similar applications for over a year. We are pleased to say that with this processor, the efficiency of plant oil extraction, emulsification and solids' dispersion is superb, enabling us to make products comprising dozens of different oils, solid powders and water. The products seem to remain permanently stable and have many other enhanced properties: our customers consistently report superior taste, texture and overall performance. We look forward to using this technology for developing many new processes in the near future."

Dominic Notter, Matrix of Life

"I purchased an LSP-500 ultrasonic processor from Industrial Sonomechanics and have been very satisfied with its performance, reliability and user friendliness. They provided excellent technical support and remained open to working with my lab on a new project involving custom instrumentation development. I highly recommend the processor and the firm."

Vincent Lee, Curtin University,  Sarawak, Malaysia.

"As a consultant and being part of the industrial chemical field for over 50 years, I constantly search for the very latest and best ultrasonic technology from all around the world. I’ve been working with Industrial Sonomechanics’ equipment on pigment size reduction and deagglomeration since January 2014 and can confidently say that their ultrasonic processors offer many advantages over any currently available alternatives, including direct scalability, stable continuous operation and high productivity with superior results."

Ken Marx, Ultrasonic Processing 

"LeMar Industries manufactures specialized machinery for industrial plants. We currently integrate Industrial Sonomechanics’ ultrasonic processors in systems used for biodiesel production, degassing, desulfurization, emulsification, dispersing, and fuel blending. ISM equipment has proven to be reliable in the field and consistently allows us to reduce processing times and achieve better results."

Leon Popik, LeMar Industries

"Adpap Ltd. is a pulp and paper, paint, chemical, raw material and additive process expert with clients around the world. We have been using ISM`s ISP-3000 industrial system since 2014. We have successfully implemented their equipment in several of our processes and are very satisfied with the results. ISM has been excellent in responding to questions and addressing any of our concerns. We look forward to working with them on many upcoming projects in the near future."
