With the FC7K, ultrasonic processes such as homogenizing, dispersing, emulsifying, particle size reduction, milling, deagglomeration, extraction, cell disruption & lysis, disintegration and sono-chemical & sono-catalytic reactions can be run in continuous flow-through mode in the lab.
The ultrasonic flow cell FC7K is part of the manifold accessories which are combinable with Hielscher’s digital lab devices UP200Ht and UP200St. Both 200 watts powerful ultrasonicators –UP200Ht and UP200St - are reliable and versatile tools for trials, sample preparation and small scale production. In combination with the ultrasonic flow cell FC7K, the ultrasonic devices can be used for the sonication in a continuous flow-through mode so that the ultrasonic processing becomes more uniformly and steady. The FC7K is made from stainless steel and features one feed port on the bottom side, which is for the supply of the material into the reactor vessel. By the discharge port on the left side above, the fluid exits the flow cell after passing the cavitational “hot spot” generated at the sonotrode. In this hot spot, the medium is treated by the intense cavitational forces, by that the various processes, such as homogenizing, dispersing, emulsifying, sono-chemical and sono-catalytical effects, are achieved.
