Power Ultrasonics: Applications of High-Intensity Ultrasound by Juan A Gallego-Juárez, Karl F Graff

By Juan A Gallego-Juárez, Karl F Graff

The commercial curiosity in ultrasonic processing has revived in the course of fresh years simply because ultrasonic know-how may possibly characterize a versatile “green” substitute for extra strength effective techniques. A problem within the software of high-intensity ultrasound to business processing is the layout and improvement of particular strength ultrasonic platforms for big scale operation. within the sector of ultrasonic processing in fluid and multiphase media the improvement of a brand new relatives of strength turbines with broad radiating surfaces has considerably contributed to the implementation at commercial scale of a number of functions in sectors equivalent to the meals undefined, setting, and production. half one covers basics of nonlinear propagation of ultrasonic waves in fluids and solids. It additionally discusses the fabrics and designs of energy ultrasonic transducers and units. half appears at purposes of excessive energy ultrasound in fabrics engineering and mechanical engineering, nutrition processing know-how, environmental tracking and remediation and business and chemical processing (including pharmaceuticals), drugs and biotechnology.

  • Covers the basics of nonlinear propagation of ultrasonic waves in fluids and solids.
  • Discusses the fabrics and designs of strength ultrasonic transducers and units.
  • Considers state of the art strength sonic purposes throughout a variety of industries.
