Ultrasound mixers

Hello everybody

Currently we are looking for options to replace conventional static mixer with ultrasound mixer ~30kHz. We are going to mix ~30m3/h of gasoil with water-based stream 24/7 (continuous operation) in range from 50:1 to 100:1.
Does anyone have experience with these? Is there any risk of induced vibration? Is only bath operation possible? How to estimate power consumption? Any links will be appreciated.

RE: Ultrasound mixers

Ultrasonic mixing is fairly new technology, and the average ChE doesn't understand it. I would want to witness a designed trial at the vendor, unless they gave a very strong performance guarantee.

Good Luck,

RE: Ultrasound mixers

I didn't know ultrasonic mixing equipment above small pilot scale existed. I had to do some preliminary looking around for a cell and gene therapy project a while back, this company seemed like the most promising lead but I never had any detailed conversations with them.

RE: Ultrasound mixers

Yes, that company sends me e-mails quite frequently too.

Good Luck,

I like my martinis shaken and not stirred comes to mind....
