Tube reactor SONOBLOC 2 inch / DN 50

The tube reactor enables the ultrasonic flow treatment of high flow rates in process engineering and is also used for wire cleaning. The transducers are mounted externally at the reactor tube, so no internals restrict the flow inside the reactor tube. The tubular reactor is therefore insensitive to blockages in case of sonicating solids-containing substrates.

Applications:

• Ultrasonic intensive treatment of ­flexible filiform products and of wire or ­r­ibbon-shaped continuous profiles
• Acceleration of desintegration and/or breakdown of organic material for increasing biogas yields and for treatment of sewage sludge.
• Supporting the disinfection of germ and ­parasite laden circulation water in pisciculture
• Dispersing of solids in liquids (pharmaceutical production)
• Supporting disinfection (killing of ­bacteria) in water and sewage treatment
• CO2 degassing from aqueous reactants
• Efficient cleaning of grease, oil, emulsions and/or cracked residues in single and multiple wire cleaning
• Support of industrial and biotechnological processes in cleaning, disintegration,
degassing and disagglomeration

Tube reactor SONOBLOC 3 inch / DN 80

For the sonication of high volume flows or substrates with high solid content the 3 -inch tubular reactor has been developed. Due to the unique design the use of internals or a change in the cross section of the reactor can be dispensed with, whereby the tube reactor is insensitive to clogging. The BANDELIN - tube reactor is mainly used in biogas plants to increase the biogas yield by desintegrating biogas substrate.

VORTEX reactor

The defined conduction of the liquid medium trough a double slit in the vortex reactor guarantees a homogeneous ultrasonic treatment at the ultrasound emitting surface of the reactor tube and the intense cavitation field in the area of the double slit. An additional turbulence item at the entry of the reactor further improves the homogenization of the liquid medium.                   

Applications:

• Intensivation of industrial, biotechnological and chemical processes (suspension, emulsion, disagglomeration, reaction acceleration, degassing)
• Intensive degassing of dye solutions and photographic casting solutions
• CO2 degassing from aqueous reactants
• Supporting disinfection (killing of bacteria) in water and sewage treatment
• Sterilisation of organic ­contents in ­industrial rinsing liquids
• Supporting the disinfection of germ and ­parasite laden circulation water in pisciculture
• Production of ultra-fine ­polishing pastes for the wafer industry
• Homogenisation of colour pigments in oil (paint manufacture)

The figure show the schematic construc-
tion of a tubular reactor type RB 8.

Tubular reactors allow the intensive flow sonication of high volume flows in process engineering and are also used for wire cleaning is inserted.

In this design, the powerful oscillation systems are fixed to the outside of the reactor tube, thus eliminating the need for internals inside the reactor tube. Tubular reactors are therefore particularly insensitive to blockages when sonicating substrates containing solids.

Depending on the desired residence time of the medium to be sonicated in the cavitation field, different reactor sizes are available.

The figure show the schematic construc-
tion of the vortex reactor type WB 4.

The vortex reactor enables the defined flow of the liquid medium to be sonicated through a double slit and guarantees a homogeneous sonication on the particularly cavitation-intensive inner surface of the reactor tube. An additional swirling of the medium to be sonicated when entering the reactor tube further improves the homogenisation.
