The 1" (25mm) Diameter, 10" long Probe can be used with a 2:1 Booster to achieve a 100µm amplitude. This probe is used for processing 1-10L volumes.
Note: Processing volumes are application specific. Variables including sample viscosity and concentration can affect the processing volume for a specific probe size.
Additional stirring may be helpful for certain applications.
Ultrasonic processing produces high pitched noise, which originates from the vessel walls and the liquid surface. The sound enclosure reduces the noise to comfortable levels. A support rod and converter clamp are included. Access ports are available on both sides and the top of the enclosure for use with the flow cell.

Securely support the VCX1500 Converter and probe assembly with a metal holder on a 51/2" x 9” cast-iron base with 1/2" diameter rod.
The flow cell enables continuous processing of 5L or more. The throughput rate depends on many variables including viscosity and desired degree of processing. The flow cell is recommended for the treatment of low viscosity samples which do not require extended exposure to ultrasonics. For optimum performance, when working on a flow through basis, pre-mixing the sample with a mechanical stirrer is recommended. Multiple units can be used in series to reduce processing time and/or maintain higher flow rates.
The process fluid is pumped into the flow cell through the inlet at the bottom. As the sample passes through the cavitation field at the tip of the flow cell probe, it is processed. The processed liquid exits the unit through an outlet port. The degree of processing can be controlled by adjusting the intensity of sonication as well as flow rate.
The 1" (25mm) high efficiency probe is included with the flow cell. All process connections are sanitary and the unit is easily disassembled for cleaning. All wetted parts are autoclavable. The flow cell is water jacketed to assist in cooling the sample fluid during processing. The chiller PART NO. 830-00906 is recommended for use when cooling the water jacket on the flow cell.
Use of the sound enclosure (part no. 830-00474) is always advised.
