Utrasonic topic: "What are Ultrasonic Extractors Used for?"
Ultrasonic extractors are the superior tool when it comes to the intensification of ultrasonic extraction processes. As a non-thermal method, sonication prevents the degradation of temperature-sensitive substances (e.g. vitamins, flavours, antioxidants, CBD etc.). The application of high-power ultrasound waves causes the perforation and disruption of cells and tissues and promotes mass transfer. This means the intracellular material (i.e. the targeted substances) is released from the inner cell and transferred into the solvent. Ultrasonic extraction intensifies the extraction process resulting in higher yields, superior extract quality and rapid processing. At the same time, ultrasonic extraction is an environmental-friendly, green method.
