Effects of Sonication on Conductivity and pH Value of Water

Conductivity and pH value of water can be efficiently influenced by treating water with high-intensity, low-frequency ultrasound. Sonication of water results in increased conductivity and pH values in water.

Influence of Power Ultrasound on Electric Conductivity

Tests were performed using the ultrasonic probe-type device UP400St in order to investigate the influence of ultrasonication on the conductivity of distilled water. Two (passive, non-sonicating) electrodes were inserted into the wide sonication vessel, the ultrasonic probe was mounted between the electrodes. As the chart below shows, the conductivity increases, as well as the pH value.

How to Take Advantage of Ultrasonic Changes in Electric Conductivity

The increase of electric conductivity has several advantages when it comes to elecrolysis and electrochemical applications. Reducing the resistance in electrolysis applications allows to cut back on the addition of salts, acids or bases, which are commonly used to modify the conductivity and resistance of liquids such as water in electrolyzers.
