- Manufacture pesticide and insecticide nanoemulsions on a laboratory, bench or industrial scale.
- Make fully water-compatible products with improved safety, diffusion and bioefficacy characteristics.
- Reduce toxicity to operator and environment while increasing potency and lowering costs.
Most active pesticide and insecticide ingredients are water-insoluble and, as such, not directly suitable for pest control. In order for them to become effective, a delivery system (a formulation that makes them appear water-soluble and improves their wettability, diffusion, safety and bioefficacy characteristics) is generally required. Nanoemulsion pesticides are thought to be a more sustainable alternative to traditional microemulsion pesticide formulations due to the improved bioefficacy, which decreases environmental burden and cost to farmers. The formation of nanocrystals, nanoemulsions and liposomes requires intense shear forces and significant energy deposition in order to break the original particles down to the nanometer scale. Industrial Sonomechanics, LLC (ISM), has developed bench and industrial-scale high-power ultrasonic processors for the production of nanocrystals, nanoemulsions and liposomes. The processors are based on our patented Barbell Horn Ultrasonic Technology (BHUT), which makes it possible to directly implement laboratory accomplishments in a production environment, guaranteeing reproducible and predictable results at any scale.

“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. 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.”
