Looking for vibratory method of gas extraction from water

Looking for vibratory method of gas extraction from water

Looking for vibratory method of gas extraction from water

Years ago I saw a demonstration of the extraction of air suspended in water with vibration. Currently I am in great need of one of those devices. Can anyone guide me to one?

RE: Looking for vibratory method of gas extraction from water

Ultrasonic vibration as used in ultrasonic cleaning systems will rapidly degas water.  These systems range in size from small jewelry cleaning systems that hold a few ounces of cleaning liquid to large industrial systems that hold hundreds of gallons of cleaning solution.   The basis of the cleaning mechanism is that vibration of high enough amplitude is used to cause cavitation during the negative pressure part of the vibration cycle.  However, the fluid will not cavitate effectively until it is degassed.  When a system is initially started up with new fluid, the degassing takes place first.  I believe higher frequency ultrasonic systems degas quicker than lower frequency systems, but I'm not entirely sure on this point.

For more details on the specifics of your application, you should probably contact a supplier of ultrasonic cleaning systems.  A web search under "Ultrasonic Cleaning" will give you many companies to check out.  One company that I know provides good equipment is Lewis Ultrasonics.

Selecting business software for a medium to enterprise-sized construction concern is extremely challenging in large part because most enterprise resource planning (ERP) suites originated in the world of repetitive manufacturing and are therefore a poor fit for a project and asset-centric business. However, midsize to large contractors need the predictable, auditable processes that ERP delivers. Download Now
