Ultrasonic Homogenizers for Liquid Processing
Hielscher ultrasonic devices are in use worldwide as laboratory mixers, high shear mixing equipment, full-size in-line homogenizers or particle mills. The applications include mixing, dispersing, particle size reduction, extraction and chemical reactions. We supply to various industry segments, such as nano-materials, paints & pigments, food & beverage, cosmetics, chemicals and fuels.

While the scale-up of a process from the laboratory or bench-top level to full production is the most critical and hardest step for other mixing technologies, it is most simple with Hielscher ultrasonic equipment. This is because; during scale up we do not change any of the driving parameters, such as amplitude or pressure.
Ultrasonic batch mixing works well for volumes of up to 100L for some purposes, however ultrasonic in-line mixing using flow cell reactors and a feed pump is the more effective solution. In a flow cell the ultrasonic power is highly concentrated on a small volume resulting a more uniform processing and better product quality. A back pressure valve can be used to increase the pressure in the flow cell. This intensifies the sonication significantly resulting in higher hydraulic shear.
Features and Benefits
- Sonication in batch or in-line mode
- Wetted sonication elements are Titanium
- Reactors are stainless (316L) or glass
- Low maintenance, no small orifices
- Ultrasonically assisted clean-in-place (CIP)
- 24hrs / 7days operation under full load
- High energy efficiency
Improved Digital Control
Our new devices come equipped with enhanced digital controls, such as touch screen, SD-card protocoling, temperature control and LAN interface for browser control. No software installation needed.
High Viscosity Slurries
Our bench-top and industrial homogenizers can process viscous slurries of up to 250,000 centipoise. For viscosities higher than 2,000 cPs we recommend the use of flow-cells with progressive cavity pumps for better coupling.
Easy-to-Clean / CIP
Hielscher ultrasonic mixers are available with sanitary fittings for easy access and cleaning. The ultrasonic cavitation assists clean-in-place procedures (CIP) – it is an extremely powerful ultrasonic cleaner in place.
