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.

lSM's new in-line cartridge filter assembly (shown below) includes a stainless-steel housing (one-time purchase) and a replaceable hydrophilic-membrane filter cartridge with three pore size options0.22 and 1 micronto meet various application requirements.

"Passing a nanoemulsion through a hydrophilic filter membrane is important for the food and beverage industries, as it removes particulate contamination. We have introduced this in-line filter assembly to take advantage of the unique high-volume production capacities of our patented ultrasonic processors so that our customers can create an industrial-scale turnkey system”, notes Alexey S. Peshkovsky, Ph.D., Co-founder, President and Chief Scientific Officer of Industrial Sonomechanics. “Our new filter assembly can manage very large volumes, and the incorporated replaceable cartridges can be cleaned and reused, further reducing total cost of ownership.”

Designed for end-user convenience

Optimized to work with Industrial Sonomechanics' production-level ultrasonic processors, BSP-1200 and ISP-3600, this high-throughput in-line cartridge filter assembly is designed to provide convenience for the end-user, including the following benefits: 

  • Removal of particulate contaminants to increase nanoemulsion quality and stability 
  • Rapid high-volume filtering that reduces the required total processing time
  • Durable stainless steel housing with replaceable filter cartridges, which lowers cost of ownership 
  • Integrated pressure gauge for convenient process monitoring
