Processing Applications

Introduction

Since the last 20 years, Ralsonics has been manufacturing ultrasonic processors for developing new applications in emerging sectors. With Ralsonics, you can develop the required process for your application with the help of our lab scale processors. We will then help you scale up to industrial scale processors that are designed for your specific process. Ralsonics’ industrial processors have hundreds of applications, all of which lead to cost savings, higher quality products and increased productivity

Biofuel Industry

With the impact of climate change becoming more and more obvious to governments worldwide, there is a renewed interest in ramping up the usage of biofuels as a replacement for conventional fossil fuels. However, from a price and scale perspective, biofuels still have some catching up to do. Using ultrasonics in the processing of biofuels can lead to tremendous cost savings by speeding up the processing and increasing the yield.

 

Ultrasonics is used for improved mixing of alcohol with oils and fats in the production of biodiesels. It increases the bioavailability of starch and sugars in the production of bioethanol. Organic material is digested faster using ultrasonics in the production of biogas.
