The Vibra-Cell VCX 750 Sonicator is a high-intensity Ultrasonic Processor. It can safely process a wide range of organic and inorganic materials, from micro-liters to liters. Typical applications include: cell lysing, organelle isolation, desegregation, extraction, homogenization, particle size reduction, soil testing, and acceleration of chemical reactions, testing for cavitations erosion, foam abatement, degassing and atomization.
The ultrasonic power supply (generator) converts 50/60 Hz voltage to high frequency electrical energy. This electrical energy is transmitted to the piezoelectric transducer within the converter, where it is changed to mechanical vibrations. The longitudinal vibrations from the converter are intensified by the probe (horn), creating pressure waves in the liquid. These in turn produce microscopic bubbles (cavities), which expand during the negative pressure excursion and implode violently during the positive excursion. This phenomenon, referred to as cavitation, creates millions of shock waves and releases high levels of energy into the liquid.
