UIP16000Most Powerful Ultrasonic Processor

16,000 watts of ultrasonic power make the UIP16000 the most powerful ultrasonic processor in the world. It is designed to work in clusters of three or more units, for large volume processing, such as to homogenize, disperse or deagglomerate.

Industrial High-Shear Homogenizer using Power Ultrasound

High-power ultrasound probe for industrial applications: The Hielscher Cascatrode™️As ultrasonic applications can be scaled up on a straight-line basis, the processing capacity increases with the ultrasonic power. At production level, processes often require more power than 40kW. For such processing applications, we recommend using a cluster of UIP10000 or UIP16000.

The UIP16000 combines a very high power with a minimal footprint. In a typical setup, the UIP16000 requires 2 cabinets of 600mm x 600mm footprint only. This makes it easy to retrofit the ultrasonic processor into existing systems. Each UIP16000 works as a self contained unit, including generator, transducer, sonotrode, flow cell and closed loop refrigeration. The stainless steel cabinets come with noise-insulated walls to reduce the noise emissions outside of the cabinet.

Process Scale Up

Each ultrasonic application requires a certain optimal combination of sonication amplitude, liquid pressure and temperature. This optimal configuration can be found in small lab or bench-top scale test, e.g. by using a UIP1000hd (1kW) with flow cell. The UIP1000hd allows for a variation of the sonication parameters in a wide range. Once the optimal parameter configuration has been identified, the process efficiency can be scaled up linearly. Therefore, the turnkey system comes pre-configured to work at the optimal parameter configuration. The table below shows general processing capacities for a 4x16kW system.

High-Performance Sonicator: Easy Installation, Simple System Start-Up

The UIP16000 is designed to facilitate the installation and start-up. The cabinets come pre-configured. It needs to be connected to the process media supply, power supply, and cooling water, only. Data interfaces are optionally available.

As mentioned above we recommend the conduct of process feasibility trials and a process optimization in small to medium scale. We will be glad to assist you in selecting the right equipment for such preliminary tests and for the final full-scale setup.
Alternatively, you can conduct process trials in our process laboratory.
