Innovative Ultrasonics specializes in process development, engineering design, installation and equipment in the area of high-powered ultrasonics for new and existing industrial applications.
High Power Ultrasound Technology
High-power ultrasonics is a new powerful, technology that is not only safe and environmentally friendly in its application but is also efficient and economical. It can be applied to existing processes to reduce or eliminate the need for chemicals and/or heat application in a variety of industrial processes. This innovative new technology, of low frequency, high-power ultrasound (20kHz - 1MHz), can be applied to a large number of industry processing applications including food safety related areas.
Innovative Ultrasonics is a company specializing in process development, engineering design, installation and equipment in the area of high-powered ultrasonics for new and existing industrial applications. Its founder has a PhD in the application of high-powered ultrasound in industrial applications and is at the forefront of the ultrasonics industry on a global basis. Working with clients around the world on a consultancy basis, and in touch with the latest advancements in the ultrasonic equipment market, Innovative Ultrasonics is a highly experienced company in the application of power ultrasound from research and development stages, through pilot trials to full scale operation at a commercial level. Innovative Ultrasonics has developed a successful business and reputation with companies, government research institutions and academic universities around the world for the development and commercialization of power ultrasound in industries such as chemical, petroleum, pharmaceutical, minerals, plastics/polymer, water and waste effluent/sludge treatment and food processing.
The use of high-power ultrasonics in industry is rapidly expanding throughout Europe and North America. The applications for which high power ultrasound can be used range from existing processes that are enhanced by the retro-fitting of high power ultrasonic technology, through to the development of processes up to now not possible with conventional energy sources.
There is a wide range of possible applications for high power ultrasound in all industries. And as a 'clean' technology, the use of ultrasound is expected to rapidly increase in importance throughout the world. The UK Department of Trade and Industry has described it as a 'key technology for the future'. The scope and potential in food processing is only now being fully realized.
Until recently, most progress in this field was known as sonochemistry and had been carried out only at laboratory level with little work being scaled up for use on a commercial basis. Over the last 10 years, many advances have been made in turning this laboratory-based prototype technology into fully operational commercial processes throughout Europe and the USA.
