Press Release Summary:
Model UIP16000 provides continuous power of 16,000 W with over 80% efficiency. Generator, transducer, and flow cell are housed in 2 connected stainless steel cabinets. If required, generator cabinet can be located up to 10 m from transducer with flow cell. Independent cooling system eliminates contact between aggressive air or dust and electric components. Operation can be controlled and monitored by power meters, status displays, and remote electric interfaces.

16,000 Watts Ultrasound for Industrial Liquid Processing
Hielscher introduces the new ultrasonic processor UIP16000. It is the by far most powerful ultrasonic processor world-wide providing a continuous power of 16,000 watts at an efficiency of more than 80%.
While Hielscher's UIP4000 (4,000 watts) and UIP8000 (8,000 watts) are still unchallenged Hielscher (www.hielscher.com) steps forward to supply the market with an unique industrial ultrasonic processor. The development of such powerful systems results from the demand for the ultrasonic treatment of liquids in large scale. Whether emulsifying oil in water, disintegrating sewage sludge, de-agglomerating or reducing germs, the needed ultrasound power usually raises proportionally to the liquid, which is to be treated in a certain time.
It is more cost-effective to compose a large ultrasonic system for example a system of 80kW with a flow rate of ten cubic meters per hour of 5 ultrasonic processors with a power of 16kW each as with 40 ultrasonic processors with a power of 2kW each.
The robust design of the transducer allows the use under heavy duty industrial conditions. The processor can also be delivered as explosion proof design. The generator as the transducer and the flow cell are housed in two connected compact stainless steel cabinets. This makes the UIP16000 a self contained, robust and easy to install equipment. The standard footprint of such a 16kW system is just 600mmx1200mm.
If required, the generator cabinet can be located remotely in a max. distance of 10m from the transducer with the flow cell.
The system is equipped with an independent cooling system, that completely avoids the contact between aggressive air or dust in the production site and the electric components of the ultrasonic processor. The operation of the ultrasonic processor can be controlled and monitored by means of power meters and status displays as well as remotely via electric interfaces.
