Design and scale-up of sonochemical reactors for food processing and other applications

P.R. Gogate; A.B. Pandit    Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai, India

Abstract

Cavitation results into dissipation of large quantity of energy locally through the violent collapse of cavities, intensifying chemical and physical processing applications of importance in food, pharmaceutical, and bioprocessing industries. The main effects include the generation of free radicals, local hot spots, and liquid circulation coupled with intense turbulence. This chapter focuses on the design aspects related to cavitation inception and bubble dynamics analysis, which help predict intensity. An overview of the different reactor configurations and optimization ...
