Utrasonic topic: "The Benefits of Ultrasonic Process Intensification"
Process intensification makes the reactions and the production of materials more efficient. Ultrasonic processing is well known to speed-up processes and to improve the output (e.g. superior quality, higher yields). Hielscher Ultrasonics manufactures superior ultrasonic equipment for homogenization, dispersion & wet-milling, emulsification, extraction, lysis, and sonochemical reactions. Learn more about how ultrasonication can intensify your process and make it more efficient!
