UIP500hdT – Industrial Processing in Small Scale
The ultrasonic processor UIP500hdT (20kHz, 500W) is an industrial grade device for pilot testing and small scale processing of liquids. Amongst the most common applications of the UIP500hdT are homogenization, dispersing, emulsification, cell disintegration and sonochemical reactions. A full color touch display, browser remote control, automatic data protocoling on an integrated SD-Card as well as temperature and pressure sensors gives you full process control and a high operation comfort.
The UIP500hdT operates at an ultrasonic frequency of 20kHz. Ultrasonic waves at this frequency create an intense cavitation in liquids. The cavitational effects can be used for manifold applications, such as: emulsifying, dispersing, homogenizing, cell disruption and extraction, deagglomeration, and degassing.
The UIP500hdT can be used with a lot of accessories, such as various sonotrodes, boosters, and flow cells. For the processing of batches larger than 5 liters, we generally recommend to sonicate using a flow cell reactor (flow mode) to achieve a higher processing consistency. When used for the sonication of liquids in flow mode, the UIP500hdT can typically process between 0.25 and 2.0L/min (The actual rate will depend on the application). As all our devices, the UIP500hdT can be operated 24 hours per day (24h/7d). Therefore, this setup could process approx. 0.5 to 3m3 per day. For higher production throughput, we recommend using either of the following devices:
Power Ultrasound with Full Process Control
Power ultrasound is the process solution for various liquid applications, such as emulsification, particle size reduction, grinding or dissolving. The UIP500hdT delivers intense ultrasonic waves generating strong cavitation. Ultrasonic cavitation and the resulting shear forces fulfill demanding tasks without problems. To guarantee a consistent process quality, not only the actual ultrasound power delivered is essential, instead all important process parameters must be controlled. The new generation of hdT ultrasonic processors enables the user to operate the ultrasonic system via touch display or browser remote control. All relevant process parameters – such as amplitude, sonication time, temperature and pressure – are automatically recorded and saved as CSV file on the integrated SD/USB ComboCard.
Thereby, the new UIP500hdT provides the same ultrasound power as its predecessor UIP500hd, but excels with a broad range of additional features, which makes the ultrasound process much more user-friendly. From the operational view, the precise control of all ultrasonic process parameters are absolut key functions.

Industrial Grade and Outstanding Efficiency
Our ultrasonic devices have a very high efficiency in the conversion of electrical energy into mechanical oscillations of the sonotrode, so that transducers of our bench-top ultrasonicators have a closed housing. There are no ventilation slits in the transducer case. Since the energy loss, which would cause a heat-up in the closed transducer housing is very low, no forced cooling, such as compressed air or water is needed. However, the most important fact is that more energy is converted into ultrasound waves in the liquid, resulting in a more intense sonication. The overall energy efficiency of the UIP500hdT is approx. 80-90% from the power plug into the liquid (click at the image above to enlarge the chart).
