This section provides an overview for ultrasonic homogenizers as well as their applications and principles. Also, please take a look at the list of 9 ultrasonic homogenizer manufacturers and their company rankings.
An ultrasonic homogenizer is a device for homogenizing chemical substances dissolved in a liquid by emitting ultrasonic waves, enabling more stable mixing of liquids that are difficult to mix using conventional mechanical stirring.
Ultrasonic waves generate very small (several hundred to several ten micrometers) bubbles in the liquid, and when these bubbles burst, they impact the chemical substances in the solution, crushing and breaking up the chemical substances and homogenizing the liquid.
Ultrasonic homogenizers are used in a variety of fields because of their ability to produce extremely stable homogeneous solutions.
In the food and dairy processing industries, ultrasonic homogenizers are used to emulsify and homogenize products that are difficult to mix, keeping processed foods fresher than with conventional methods.
Also, in the production of cosmetics, the extremely stable emulsification makes it possible to produce high-quality creams and lotions.
Ultrasonic homogenizers are used not only in the manufacturing industry, but also in research and development in biology and microbiology to destroy and dissolve cellular tissue and viruses.
The key components of an ultrasonic homogenizers are an oscillator and a transducer.
The oscillator outputs a signal, which is converted into vibration by the vibrating element inside the transducer, thereby generating ultrasonic waves.
The tip of the transducer vibrates vertically approximately 20,000 times per second.
Since sound waves are longitudinal waves, they travel through the liquid, repeatedly creating areas of high and low density in the liquid.
In other words, the ultrasonic vibration repeatedly pressurizes and depressurizes the liquid, generating a large number of vacuum bubbles (also called cavitation or cavitations).
At the moment these bubbles burst, extremely large ultrasonic shock waves are generated, which pull apart or break up the nano-level agglomerated particles in the liquid, thereby homogenizing the particles in the liquid.
Compared to conventional mechanical homogenizers, contamination of the liquid due to foreign matter is minimized, and deterioration of the equipment due to friction is also reduced, resulting in lower maintenance and management costs.
