ISM Introduces Breakthrough Technology for Ultrasound-Assisted Extraction (UAE)

[fa icon="calendar"] Nov 8, 2023 2:00:00 PM / by ISM Team

ISM Ultrasonic ExtractorIndustrial Sonomechanics (ISM) is proud to announce its breakthrough technology for Ultrasound-Assisted Extraction (UAE). Specifically focused on the most challenging and highest value extraction projects, ISM sets itself apart by combining the ability to deliver high-intensity ultrasound (enjoying a 4x advantage over the nearest competitor) with a scalable process flow (10 - 15 L/min flow rate) that is unique in the industry. ISM's versatile and custom-configured equipment set can be applied to multiple bioactives, botanicals, microorganisms, pharmaceuticals, and other related compounds.

Jeff Meyer, COO of Industrial Sonomechanics, dubs this new specialty line "a beast" when it comes to extraction. Meyer notes “The new ISM ultrasonic system empowers companies to swiftly extract a diverse array of botanicals on a large scale, creating a faster ROI for the customer.”

Ultrasound-Assisted Extraction (UAE)—The ISM Difference

ISM’s equipment package enables you to extract active pharmacological agents for drug formulation applications, polyphenols for the food and beverage industry, alkaloid-rich extracts from kratom leaves and mushrooms, as well as cannabinoids and terpenes.

ISM ultrasonic extraction solutions are differentiated due to the patented Barbell Horns® generating high ultrasonic amplitudes at all operational scales. Unlike many alternatives that are confined to laboratory use, ISM extraction systems handle volumes from milliliters to hundreds of liters of slurry. Further, for biomass slurries prone to settling, ISM offers an optional in-line high-shear mixing pump.

The ISM extractor system offers precise temperature control and features first-of-its-kind, patented, fully sealed water-cooled transducers, enabling work with flammable materials, including organic solvents. The ISM solution frequently permits replacing harsh organic solvents with milder, greener, and more economical food-grade alternatives like ethanol or water while achieving superior results.

ISM UAE—The Choice is Clear

Across all the technical and business drivers related to extraction, ISM's ultrasound-assisted extraction technology wins over the competition. Utilizing ISM's patented technology, the rates of extract processing and the associated yields outpace CO2 extraction, solvent extraction, high-pressure homogenization, as well as all other sonication solutions.

The ISM solution enables lower operating and maintenance costs, thereby increasing the return on investment. The capital equipment cost of the ISM extraction processor is at a fraction of its competition, thereby eliminating high start up costs as an obstacle. Finally, the safety configuration, low/no-pressure processing environment, and the ability to use milder/greener solvents make using the system a comfortable solution for your team members.
