The ultrasonic generator transforms the electric current from 220V 50Hz into ultrasonic energy of 20Hz, to feed the ultrasonic transducers. The transducer produces an elastic distortion by following the alternate voltage, which traduces in a longitudinal mechanical vibration that produces a cavitation effect in the titanium alloy probe submerged in the solution. This generates a multitude of micro bubbles which releases a considerable energy in the probe end that allow a sample intense shaking and vibration.
Biology, chemistry, environment, general analysis laboratory.
It allows disintegration of cells and biological tissue, DNA protein extraction, ether hydrolysis RNA, reactions output acceleration and increase, earth and sediments treatment according to EPA SW methods which simplifies the Soxhet method in time, quality control, R&D, sample gas remove, dissolution and homogenization, emulsion, dispersion, liposomes formation, proteins microencapsulation, etc.
The equipment consists of a control and power unit and an ultrasonic transducer (homogenizer).
Control unit: Epoxy coated external metallic case and ABS front panel. It consists of a LCD display, cycle time programming push buttons, impulse intervals, maximum power and temperature with 10 programs configurable by the user. Probe and connector for the sam- ple temperature control.
