Sonifer Ultrasonic Cell Disrupter
The Branson Sonifier II Ultrasonic Cell Disrupter is a versatile
laboratory unit available in two power levels for ultrasonic disintegration
Each model consists of a power supply, converter, and mechanically
self-tuned probe. The power supply converts conventional 6OHz line
voltage to high frequency electrical energy at 20,000 Hz. The converter
receives the electrical energy from the power supply and coverts
it to a 20 Hz mechanical vibration. These ultrasonic vibrations
are coupled to the horn which transmits the high frequency energy
to the solution.
Ultrasonic vibrations can also be applied directly to a solid workpiece
with the use of a variety of specially designed tips that attach
to the horn.
The Sonifier II is suitable for laboratory or pilot use and can
handle processes requiring high or lower intensity ultrasonic energy.
It has a compact shape that saves one third the space required by
other units. The angled front panel provides clear visibility and
easy access to controls and loading meter. A complete line of accessories
for the Sonifier II is available to meet individual application
Applications include emulsification of immiscible liquids; homogenization,
the reduction of substances to particles and dispersion of them
throughout a fluid making it uniform in consistency; dispersion
of insoluble substances in liquid; and acceleration of chemical
and biological reaction, e.g., depolymerization of large molecules.
Other applications include sparation, extraction, benefication,
leaching, disruption, mixing, scrubbing, disintegration, and comminution.
