The UIP2000hd (20kHz/2,000W) from Hielscher is an industrial ultrasonic device that provides flexible and highly efficient ultrasound for power applications.

The company’s ultrasonic processors are suitable for liquid processing, such as emulsification, dispersing, particle size reduction by milling and grinding, as well as disintegration, extraction or homogenising.

The UIP2000hd features high flexibility and robustness and has been developed for heavy duty applications and 24/7 high-performance operation.

It can be run at 2,000W continuously.

The field of application ranges from research and development up to the industrial production of medium-scale volumes.

The UIP2000hd is commonly used for the inline sonification (single pass or loop) in order to obtain a better processing quality, but it can be used for batch sonication too.

Applications for the UIP2000hd include the production of very fine emulsions and suspensions, the particle size reduction and wet-milling of particles down to micron- and nano-sizes, the extracting and homogenising as well as the reduction of germs.

The 2,000W processor can be used for the sewage sludge treatment for a better biogas yield.

It can also be used in the intensive cleaning of continuous materials such as wires, tapes and profiles as well as of single components or bigger bores.

By a broad range of manifold accessories, such as corresponding sonotrodes, various flow cell reactors and sound protection boxes, a suitable matching system can be assembled.

The typical flow rates of the UIP2000hd range between approximately 2 to 10m per day, depending on the particulate process.

For higher production throughput, the use of either multiple units or one of the larger Hielscher ultrasonic processors, such as the UIP4000, UIP10000 or UIP16000, is recommended.

The UIP2000hd allows for running at a wide range of ultrasonic parameter sets; ultrasonic amplitude, liquid pressure and liquid composition can be varied.

This enables sonication with following adjustments: sonotrode amplitudes of up to 170-micron liquid pressures of up to 10 bars liquid flow rates of up to 15L/min (depending on the process), liquid temperatures of up to 80C (other temperatures on request), and material viscosity of up to 100.000cp.

The UIP2000hd delivers the power at a controlled amplitude level so that the magnitude of the mechanical ultrasonic vibrations at the sonotrode is constant under all load conditions.

The amplitude can be changed from 50 to 100 per cent at the generator and by using various booster horns.

The set amplitude is constant, while sonicating any material at any pressure.

This feature gives the operator full control over the most important sonication parameter: the amplitude.

The UIP2000hd comes with an intelligent automatic frequency tuning that finds the optimal operational frequency automatically and ensures a higher overall energy efficiency and reliability.

This flexibility allows users to find the optimal process configuration.

The UIP2000hd offers exact reproducibility and linear scalability.

Any sonication setup can be reproduced and can be used at continuous operation or can be scaled up to any larger unit.

For the individual process set-up, Hielscher offers a range of accessories, such as sonotrodes, boosters and flow cell reactors and sound protection boxes.

The PC-Control (optional software interface) allows for the recording of the individual test runs.

The UIP2000hd is manufactured in Germany and has a compact design.

The transducer, with a weight of approximately 7kg and the generator with a weight of approximately 12.5kg, result in a high-performance ultrasonic system that is easy to handle.

The ultrasound is generated by the use of piezo-electrical ceramic components in the transducer.

The piezoelectric technique is said to have several advantages over the magnetostrictive ultrasound generation.

In magnetostrictive transducers, an electro-magnetic field is generated by electrical power that causes the vibration of a magnetostrictive material.

In Hielscher’s piezo-electric transducer the electrical oscillations are directly converted into longitudinal vibrations, so that a higher conversion efficiency is achieved.

The cooling requirements are considerably reduced.

A complex installation of an external cooling supply, such as cooling water circulation or compressed air, is not necessary.

This technology allows the compact design of high-power ultrasonic devices such as the UIP2000hd, which can be used flexibly as it is easily handled and operated.

The UIP2000hd can be used in the lab, but it is designed and built for industrial use.

It is said to be easy to operate and handle and only a little maintenance is required.

Installation and cleaning and sanitising are simple procedures.

Hielscher offers special flow cells offering advanced clean-in-place (CIP) and sterilise-in-place (SIP) requirements.

The transducer of the UIP2000hd is IP65 grade and withstands dirt, dust, moisture or outside operation.

Extra forced cooling of the transducer is not necessary in consequence to the energy transformation efficiency.

This means no cooling by water or compressed air is required.

The lower heat loss means that more energy is transmitted into the processed liquid, so a more intensive sonication is achieved.

With an overall energy efficiency of approximately 80-90 per cent from the power plug into the liquid, the UIP2000hd provides good energy efficiency.
