Utrasonic topic: "Common applications of Ultrasonic Dispersers"
Ultrasonic dispersers are a reliable tool to disperse and deagglomerate micron- and nano-sized particles into uniform suspensions. Besides the common dispersing application, ultrasonic dispersers (also known as probe-type ultrasonicators) are used for manifold other processes in lab and industry.
The application fields of ultrasonic dispersers include liquid-solid mixtures, emulsification, extraction, disintegration and cell lysis, sonochemical reactions and many more.
Common applications of ultrasonic dispersers are the production of stable nano-emulsions and -suspensions; sample preparation e.g. soil samples to identify the presence of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs); degassing and deaeration of samples; as well as the functionalization, activation and cleaning of particle surfaces (e.g. catalysts).
