At 1:00 pm EST on June 28th, 2022, please join us for a YouTube podcast with a live Q&A session. This event, entitled "Make and Measure the Potency of Cannabis Extract Nanoemulsions", is a collaboration project between Industrial Sonomechanics (ISM) and Orange Photonics, where Dr. Alexey Peshkovsky (ISM) and Mr. Dylan Wilks (Orange Photonics) will discuss:

1. ISM's ultrasonic technology and NanoStabilizer® formulations used to produce water-soluble cannabis extract nanoemulsions in the forms of translucent liquids, powders, and quick-disintegrating tablets.

2. Principles of Orange Photonics' Light Lab liquid chromatography technology used to measure the potency of liquid and powdered water-soluble cannabis extract nanoemulsions, including detection limits for various cannabinoids.

3. Best ways to prepare samples comprising various nanoemulsion types for accurate cannabinoid content analysis.

4. Typical reasons for and ways to avoid inconsistent or diminishing cannabinoid potency results in nanoemulsions.

5. Benefits of having a Light Lab cannabis analyzer in-house.

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.
