Hielscher Ultrasonics has released a technical article that discusses the ultrasonic dispersing of nanomaterials for paints and coatings.
Nanomaterials play a role in products such as paints, coatings, high-performance coatings or composites. Ultrasonic cavitation is used to disperse nano-sized particles in liquids, for example, in water, oil, solvents or epoxy resins.

The procedure of sonication of solid particles in an aqueous suspension is carried out using the UIP1000hd ultrasonicator (20 kHz, 1,000W) from Hielscher.
A scavenger is a chemical substance that is added to a mixture in order to remove or deactivate impurities and marring by-products. ln many reactions, an excess of starting materials is used to drive a solution phase reaction to completion. The final mixture is composed of the desired product and one or more unwanted side products. This article from Hielscher explains the uses of scavengers, the power of ultrasonic mixing and the benefits of ultrasonic scavenging and discusses batch ...
Hielscher ultrasonic reactors are used in many industries to assist and improve the catalytic extraction processing (CEP) or so-called phase-transfer extraction (PTE). Catalytic extraction involves a heterogenous immiscible phase system, such as liquid-liquid or liquid-solid. Ultrasonic high-shear and cavitational forces improve the dissolving rates of solutes significantly, leading to a faster and more complete extraction.
The sonication of coal slurries contributes to various processes during the energy production from coal. Ultrasound promotes the catalytic hydrogenation during the liquefaction of coal. Furthermore, sonication can improve the surface area and extractability of coal. Undesired chemical side reactions during the de-ashing and desulphurisation can be avoided — accomplishing the process in much less time.
This video presents the DRS3500 ultrasonic wire and cable cleaning system from Hielscher Ultrasonics. The DRS3500 provides high-power ultrasound for the inline cleaning of continuous materials. Thanks to its high intense cavitational forces, it can remove dirt and residues such as soaps, lubricants and dust.
