Ultrasonic Immersible Systems

Our Ultrasonic Immersibles provide the ability to acoustically energize existing tanks and treatment vessels. This technique offers the convenience of a quick ultrasonic installation into your current process loop without major equipment alterations.

The permanent acoustic output performance of our Ultrasonic Immersibles is the envy of worldwide ultrasonic equipment manufacturers. Our Immersibles deliver constant and consistent operational performance, year-after-year. Our solid state transducers and silver-brazed bonds are guaranteed to deliver unmatched process reliability for 10 Years.

Ultrasonic Cylindrical Immersible

This is a Cylindrical Immersible, M/N: UCI-4. Our flexible manufacturing capabilities allow us to construct our Immersibles in a variety of unique packages. Our Ultrasonic Cylindrical Immersible product group (UCI) is just another example of how creative we can be in building our Ultrasonic Processing Equipment.

DFR-12 These Dual-Frequency Cylindrical Immersibles, M/N: DCI-12, have a 12.75" OD and are rated at 1500 Watts each. These particular Immersibles have been built to be installed in a supercritical Carbon Dioxide Cleaning Chamber. The actual pressure differential across the Diaphragm Plate is close to zero. This way we can optimize the ultrasonic activity.

The enclosed photo illustrates a typical circular Immersible package. We prefer to use (2) frequencies to maximize the cleaning effectiveness of the system. Our Dual-Frequency Processing TechnologyTM uses 16 kHz & 20 kHz to maximize the ultrasonic effect while minimizing the need for strong chemistry, (strong chemistry refers to either concentrating caustic soda or hot caustic soda).

Common Immersible Installations Include:

Side Mounted Immersible Systems.
Single frequency Immersibles may be mounted to direct the ultrasonic sound field toward the material requiring treatment. The Immersible's lower mounting bracket could be a saddle to eliminate the need for lower internal tank access.

Bottom Mounted Immersible

Bottom Mounted Immersible Systems.
The Immersible's conduit may be formed for positioning the transducers on the tank's bottom surface. Material may be lowered from above or conveyed through the ultrasonic sound field.Strategic liquid level depths will strongly influence the processing characteristics of the material positioned within the sound field.

Dual-Frequency Immersible

Dual-Frequency Ultrasonic Immersible Systems
Our Dual-Fre
quency Technology may be packaged into a simple Immersible system. The opposing diaphragm plate configuration maximizes the reaction kinetics within the processing chamber. This arrangement may be used for batch or continuous treatment dependent upon material flow characteristics. We offer many additional Dual-Frequency Configurations to adapt to your particular installation requirements.

Dual-Frequency Immersible Trough

The Dual-Frequency Immersible Trough.
The Dual-Frequency Immersible Trough is a continuous flow system. The material flows through the center section for effective acoustic exposure. Transducers may be attached to the bottom surface for thorough treatment of high density material.
Our Ultrasonic Trough provides an effective structure for this purpose

Diagrahm of an Immersible

The basic Immersible System includes a Diaphragm Plate, sealed Transducer Cover, ultrasonic power cable conduit, and the high-frequency electrical generator.

To purchase an Ultrasonic Immersible, please specify: The Diaphragm Plate size and power level, Transducer Style, Mounting Tab Style and location; and the Conduit Configuration bent to match your installation requirements.

The Side Mounted Immersible is also available with a rear entry transducer cable connection.

Side Immersible with rear entry

The Rear Entry Conduit connection allows Side Mounted Immersibles to be stacked vertically for tall processing tank installations. Positioning rails allow each Immersible to slide down tracks attached to the inside wall of the processing tank.

Curved Ultrasonic Immersibles

The Curved Diaphragm Plate Immersible allows the settling sediment to vibrate off the resonating surface. This configuration eliminates the gradual decay in ultrasonic performance caused by accumulating debris which isolates the diaphragm plate from the process solution.

Bottom Mounted Curved Diaphagm Plate

Top Mounted Curve Diaphragm Plate

The Top Mounted Curved Diaphragm Plate Immersible is built to project the sound field downward. The curved surface allows rising coalesced gas bubbles to slide off the vibrating diaphragm plate. Trapped gas/vapor bubbles will prevent the ultrasonic energy from coupling to the process solution and will reduce processing results. The Curved Diaphragm Plate Immersible prevents vapor pocket trapping thereby improving system performance.

Additional Power Cable Connections Include:

Flexible Braided Steel Conduit

The flexible Braided Stainless Steel Conduit is ideal for installations requiring complex immersible conduit geometry. The flexible conduit assembly is easily maneuvered around obstacles, simplifying the initial installation.

Bulkhead Fitting Ultrasonic Immersible

The Bulkhead Fitting Ultrasonic Immersible eliminates the need for the conduit by passing the transducer power cable through a hole in the wall of the process tank. The bulkhead fitting is equipped with an "O" Ring to seal this penetration for leak tight operation. The bulkhead fitting is easily serviced for "O" ring .

Ultrasonic Immersibles offer the following processing advantages:

Immersibles provide a large acoustically activated surface for maximizing contact area with the process solution, stiff paddle effect versus point source resonators.

Immersibles are easy to install and maintain. Existing storage tanks can easily be converted into an ultrasonically activated vessel/system. In addition, troughs or other material conveyancing hardware can be ultrasonically activated for effective treatment while the product moves to the next location.

The primary source of sound energy is emitted from the Ultrasonic Diaphragm Plate. The high peak-to-peak displacement of the Diaphragm Plate creates the maximum cavitational intensity directly in front of this surface.

The installation flexibility of the Immersible allows the hardware to be transferred from vessel to vessel. Temporary setups are easily moved and reconnected to accommodate expanding systems.
