BSP-1200 Ultrasonic Processor - Barbell Horn Replacement Procedure

BSP-1200 Ultrasonic Processor - Barbell Horn Replacement Procedure

This video illustrates the barbell horn replacement procedure for the bench-scale ultrasonic liquid processor, BSP-1200. The system is designed for ultrasonic flow-through process optimization and medium-scale production. It is based on Barbell Horn Ultrasonic Technology, which permits constructing large-capacity ultrasonic liquid processors operating at high ultrasonic amplitudes, making it possible to bridge the gap between laboratory research and its industrial implementation. Some application examples include the production of nanoemulsions, nanocrystals and liposomes for pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food, ink, paint, coating, wood, metalworking, nanocomposite and fuel industries, as well as wastewater purification, plant oil extraction, beverage sterilization, production of biofuels, crude oil desulphurization, liquid degassing, cell disruption, and many more.

Industrial Ultrasonic Liquid Processor, ISP-3000

Industrial Ultrasonic Liquid Processor, ISP-3000

The ISP-3000 industrial-scale ultrasonic liquid processor is designed for continuous high-volume commercial production. Capable of outputting up to 3,000 W of acoustic power, the processor is supplied with an ultrasonic generator, a water-cooled transducer, a Barbell horn and a transparent or stainless steel reactor chamber (flow cell). ISP-3000 provides extremely high ultrasonic amplitudes and cavitation intensities during the continuous manufacture of a wide range of products for multiple industries. Some examples include the production of nanoemulsions, nanocrystals and liposomes for pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food, ink, paint, coating, wood, metalworking, nanocomposite and fuel industries, as well as wastewater purification, plant oil extraction, production of biofuels, crude oil desulphurization, liquid degassing, cell disruption, and many more.

Translucent Nanoemulsion Produced with ISP-3000

Translucent Nanoemulsion Produced with ISP-3000

The video illustrates the production of a translucent soybean oil-in-water nanoemulsion, carried out with an industrial-scale ultrasonic processor, ISP-3000, manufactured by Industrial Sonomechanics (ISM). Oil-in-water nanoemulsions are widely used in cosmetics, pharmaceutical, food, beverage, agricultural and other industries as delivery systems for active lipophilic compounds, such as drugs, nutraceuticals, flavors, etc. Translucent nanoemulsions are especially attractive because their extremely small droplet sizes (under 100 nm) lead to long-term stability, improve absorption and enable the delivery of exceptionally high concentrations of active substances. ISM's Barbell Horn Ultrasonic Technology (BHUT) was employed to scale this process up from a pilot study. High ultrasonic amplitude (100 microns) was maintained throughout the process.
