Dissolving: High-Performance Dissolvers
Dissolvers by Hielscher Ultrasonics use the mechanical forces of acoustic cavitation in order to disperse and deagglomerate powders into a colloidal suspension. Ultrasonic dissolvers are widely used in the paint and pigment industry, where pigment powder is dispersed in a binder. Intense ultrasound waves break agglomerates into uniform primary particles. Ultrasonicators are an established dissolving technology used in paint manufacturing as well as in the chemical, plastic, and food industry.
- Deagglomeration of powders
- Preparation of brines
- Saturated and supersaturated solutions
- Dissolving sugar in food formulations
- Dispersion of paint pigments
- Mixing of reagents
- Dissolving tablets and capsules (drug release test)
High-Performance Dissolvers for Any Volume
Hielscher Ultrasonics is specialized in the design, manufacturing and wordwide distribution of reliable high-power dissolvers, homogenizers and high-shear mixers, that use ultrasound and ultrasonic / acoustic cavitation to dissolve, disperse and deagglomerate powders and particles into uniform products such as paint, chemical, plastic, and food formulations. Hielscher dissolving equipment is available from compact laboratory batch devices to fully-industrial flow-through systems.

Highest Quality – Designed & Manufactured in Germany
The sophisticated hardware and smart software of Hielscher ultrasonicators are designed to guarantee reliable ultrasonic processing such as the production of (super-)saturated solutions, pigment formulations, and nano-dispersions with reproducible outcomes and in user-friendly manner.
Hielscher Ultrasonics systems are used worldwide in the production of well-known paint, chemical, and food producers. Proven to be reliable for the preparation with high efficiency of high-quality dispersions, colloidal suspensions and solutions, Hielscher ultrasonicators are not only used on laboratory scale, but mostly in the industrial production for dissolving applications. Due to their robustness and low maintenance, Hielscher ultrasonic processors can be easily installed, operated and monitored.
Hielscher Ultrasonics in Teltow, Germany is an owner-managed family business. Hielscher Ultrasonics is ISO certified. Of course, Hielscher ultrasonicators are CE compliant and meet the requirements of UL, CSA and RoHs.
Automatic Data Protocolling
In order to fulfil production standards (e.g., cGMP), production processes must be detailed monitored and recorded. Hielscher Ultrasonics digital ultrasonic dissolvers and homogenizers feature an automatic data protocolling. Due to this smart feature, all important process parameters such as ultrasonic energy (total and net energy), temperature, pressure, time, and date are automatically stored onto a built-in SD-card as soon as the device is switched on.
Process monitoring and data recording are important for continuous process standardization and product quality. By accessing the automatically recorded process data, you can revise previous sonication runs and evaluate the outcome.
Another user-friendly feature is the browser remote control of our digital ultrasonic systems. Via remote browser control you can start, stop, adjust and monitor your ultrasonic processor remotely from anywhere.
