ISM Launches a New Noise Reduction Enclosure for Ultrasonic Systems

[fa icon="calendar'] Sep 26, 2022 10:30:00 AM / by ISM Team posted in General Announcements, Process Scale-up, Ultrasonic Processing Systems

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Industrial Sonomechanics, LLC (ISM) is pleased to announce the commercial availability of its new noise reduction enclosure, NRE-30. This versatile product significantly reduces the noise exposure created by ultrasonic processors in a wide range of configurations while allowing for clear visibility of the enclosed equipment.

The enclosure offers multiple important benefits to users, including a 270-degree view of the workspace and a size that keeps the unit small enough to move around yet sufficiently large to easily fit different types of equipment. 

NRE-30 features a strong extruded aluminum frame with durable and transparent plexiglass panels for structural stability, and waterproof sound-absorbing materials for safe and easy clean up. The full-front access door allows for convenient entry, enabling the operator to safely access the equipment inside.

The enclosure is built to accommodate multiple equipment models and configurations, and comes with several sealable inlet/outlet access ports for tubing and cables as well as a support stand and clamping system that fits most ultrasonic processors on the market today.

ISM Launches Large-Capacity In-Line Cartridge Filter for Nanoemulsions

[fa icon="calendar'] Sep 13, 2022 10:00:00 AM / by ISM Team posted in Emulsion-based Products, General Announcements, Ultrasonic Processing Systems, Medical Cannabis

[fa icon="comment"] 1 Comment

Benefits include significantly faster throughput, less downtime, and lower total cost of ownership.

Industrial Sonomechanics, LLC (ISM) is happy to announce the commercial availability of several new large-capacity in-line filtration products, which increase the efficiency of the nanoemulsion production process and lower the associated cost. 

Filtering is key to nanoemulsion production

Filtration is a necessary post-processing step of ultrasonic nano-emulsification—a process that converts cannabis extracts and/or other hydrophobic bioactives into a water-compatible form. This new integrated unit removes microorganisms (sterilization), dust, titanium particles, and any leftover plant matter while making filtration convenient and highly scalable.

Barbell Horn® Replacement Procedure: Description & Video

[fa icon="calendar'] Aug 26, 2022 11:30:31 AM / by ISM Team posted in Ultrasonic Processing Systems

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

The below step-by-step guide and video illustrate the procedure for replacing Barbell Horns®, using an Industrial Sonomechanics (ISM) bench-scale ultrasonic processor, BSP-1200, as an example. This procedure is used when switching to a Barbell Horn® of the same or, as shown in this example, a different type and can be applied with all ISM ultrasonic processors and horn models. 

Barbell Horn® Ultrasonic Technology (BHUT) is ISM's core intellectual property, which allows our customers to scale-up their applications without having to reduce the ultrasonic amplitude and the associated processing intensity, thereby ensuring reproducible high-quality results on any scale, from lab to industrial. To learn more about why high ultrasonic amplitudes are important, please visit this page.

ISM Innovation in High-Amplitude Ultrasound Ramps Up the POWER

[fa icon="calendar'] Feb 16, 2022 1:02:27 PM / by ISM Team posted in General Announcements, Process Scale-up, Ultrasonic Processing Systems

[fa icon="comment"] 2 Comments

Industrial Sonomechanics (ISM) has cracked the code in ramping up the power of its high-amplitude industrial-scale ultrasonic liquid processor, increasing the unit's already high 3000 W power rating to 3600 W. The additional power enables our manufacturing customers to improve productivity, thereby increasing the ROI for each process they undertake. It also enables more applications involving viscous liquids (e.g., adhesives, detergents, coatings, food/beverage products), increasing the utility of ISM equipment within more diverse manufacturing conditions.

This comprehensive upgrade also includes Barbell Horn® design improvements, the addition of a storage/mixing tank with magnetically coupled mixer, as well as many enhanced generator features (e.g., intuitive user interface, better overload protection, several new external control/monitoring features), all in a more compact and robust frame.
