UIP2000hdT – 2000 Watts Powerful Industrial Ultrasonicator for Full Process Control
The new digital ultrasonicator UIP2000hdT (20kHz, 2000W) is a powerful ultrasound processor for liquid treatments on bench-top and industrial scale. Common applications include homogenization, emulsification, dispersing & particle fine milling, lysis & extraction, dissolving or sonochemical reactions such as sono-synthesis and sono-catalysis. Color touch display, browser remote control, automatic data recording, integrated SD/USB ComboCard and plugable temperature and pressure sensors allow for precise process control and operation comfort.
High Power and Full Process Control
Powerful sonication is the process solution for manifold liquid processing applications, such as emulsifying, dispersing, milling or dissolving. The UIP2000hdT provides intense ultrasound waves to fulfill demanding tasks without problems. To ensure a consistent process quality, not only the power delivered is essential, the control and monitoring of all important process parameters is key. The new generation of hdT ultrasonicators enables the operator to pilot the ultrasonic device 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 UIP2000hdT provides the same ultrasound power as the predecessor UIP2000hd, 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.

Browser Remote Control
The UIP2000hdT can be controlled using any common browser, such as Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, Mozilla, mobile IE/Safari using the new LAN web interface. The LAN connection is a very simple plug-n-play setup and requires no software installation. The ultrasonic device acts as DHCP server/client and requests or assigns an IP automatically. The device can be operated directly from the PC/MAC or using a switch or router. Using an optional pre-configured wireless router, the device can be controlled from most smartphones or tablet computers, e.g. the Apple iPad. Using the port-forwarding of a connected router, you could control your UIP2000hdT via internet from any place in the world – your smart-phone or tablet being the remote control.
Another smart feature of the UIP2000hdT is the operation and control via LAN (local area network, see right box) which facilitates the operation and allows for high processing flexibility. All information of the sonication process is recorded on SD/USB data card, automatically. A plugable sensor measures the temperature permanently whereas an optionally available pressure sensor can be additionally plugged.
Automatic Frequency Tuning
Like all Hielscher ultrasonic devices, the UIP2000hdT comes with an intelligent automatic frequency tuning. When the device is switched on, the generator will sense the optimal operational frequency. It will then drive the device at this frequency. That improves the overall energy efficiency and reliability of our ultrasonic devices. All you need to do, is to switch the system on. The generator will perform the frequency tuning automatically in a fraction of a second.
A Robust Work Unit for Manifold Applications
The UIP2000hdT is a robust and reliable system for all kind of ultrasonic liquid processes. Important applications for the ultrasonic processor UIP2000hdT are the breakage (particle size reduction), deagglomeration & dispersion of nano materials, the functionalization of nano particles, emulsification, the production of biofuels (e.g. biodiesel, bioethanol), the formulation of paint & coatings, and various sono-chemical applications (e.g. sono-catalysis, phase transfer catalysis, precipitation, sol-gel routes).
With 2000W ultrasonic power, UIP2000hdT handles easily applications in pilot and large scale. Corresponding sonotrodes e.g. the cascatrode™ provide the required intensity of ultrasonic treatment of the liquid. Corresponding flow cells are offered for continuous operation. Sound protection casings complete the ultrasonic system based on UIP2000hdT. The picture above, shows a disintegration system of 24xUIP2000 . The combined power of 48kW is used for the processing of approx. 6m³/hr.
If you have a predecessor such as the UIP500hd, UIP1000hd, UIP1500hd, UIP2000hd, you can upgrade your device to the digital hdT version. Click here to learn more about the upgrade from hd to hdT version!
An extensive list of manifold accessories, such as sonotrodes, boosters and flow cells is available for the UIP2000hdT. In combination with a sonotrode and the stand, you can sonicate samples in a batch to test or develop various liquid formulations for their response to sonication.
For the processing of batches larger than 5 liters, we generally recommend to sonicate using a flow cell reactor (flow mode) in order to obtain a better processing quality. When used with a flow cell you can run larger samples in recirculation to establish the correlation between parameters, such as amplitude, pressure and liquid composition, and the process results and efficiency. When used for the sonication of liquids in flow mode, the UIP2000hdT can typically process between 1.0 and 8.0L/min (The actual rate will depend on your process). As the UIP2000hdT is full industrial grade, it can be operated 24 hours per day (24h/7d). A UIP2000hdT can typically process approx. 2 to 10m³ per day. For higher production throughput, we recommend using either multiple units or one the larger ultrasonic devices:
Industrial Grade and Outstanding Efficiency
The UIP2000hdT is designed and built for commercial production. This ultrasonic processor requires little maintenance, is easy to setup and simple to clean and to sanitize.
Despite the enormous power of the ultrasonic processor UIP2000hdT (2000 watts, 20kHz), this ultrasonic device does not need any additional cooling by water or compressed air. The device can be operated continuously in air, too. The robust design of the transducer, made of stainless steel and titanium, enables use under extreme conditions of dust, dirt, higher temperatures and humidity.
As all our industrial ultrasonic processors, the UIP2000hdT has a very high efficiency in the conversion of electrical energy into mechanical oscillations of the sonotrode. This means, that more energy is transmitted into the liquid, resulting in a better sonication. The overall energy efficiency of the UIP2000hdT is approx. 80-90% from the power plug into the liquid (click at the image above to enlarge the chart).
Full Amplitude Control and High Performance
The amplitude of the UIP2000hdT is electronically controlled, so that the magnitude of the mechanical ultrasonic vibrations at the sonotrode is constant under all load conditions. You can change the amplitude from 20 to 100% at the generator and additional ranges by using various booster horns. The chosen amplitude is being held constant, while sonicating any material at any pressure. This feature gives you full control over the most important sonication parameter: Amplitude.
