Hielscher’s ultrasonic devices — including the UIP2000hd and UIP16000 — are suitable for dispersing, removing agglomerates, wet milling, micro-grinding, the manufacture of superfine-size slurries and the processing of micron and nano-sized materials such as ceramics, alumina trihydrate, barium sulphate, calcium carbonate and metal oxides.

The company says that the simple design of the ultrasonic flow cell enables the units to be cleaned quickly and that less power is normally needed for ultrasonic equipment than conventional milling equipment.

Ultrasonic sound waves result in alternating cycles of high and low pressure in a liquid. During low-pressure small vacuum bubbles are formed — a phenomenon known as cavitation.

During high-pressure cycles the bubbles implode and cause micro-jets of up to 1,000km/hr, which subject large particles to surface erosion and break them up.
