Power ultrasonics: new technologies and applications for fluid processing
J.A. Gallego-Juárez, Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Spain
The industrial interest in ultrasonic processing has revived during recent years particularly because ultrasonic technology may represent a flexible ‘green’ alternative for energy efficient processes. The major challenge in the application of high-intensity ultrasound to industrial processing is the design and development of specific power ultrasonic systems for large-scale operation. For ultrasonic processing in fluid and multiphase media, the development of a new family of power generators with extensive radiating surfaces has significantly contributed to the implementation, at semi-industrial ...
