Main Applications of Ultrasonic Processor:
•Ultrasonic Lysis: Cell Disruption & Extraction - The disintegration of cell structures (lysis) by means of ultrasound is used for the extraction of intra-cellular compounds or for the microbial inactivation. Ultrasonic waves generating cavitation disrupt cell walls and facilitate the release of matrix components.
Transfer - diffusion of
solvents into the tissue & mass transfer from the cell into the
and Enzyme Extraction - the extraction of organic compounds
contained within the body of plants and seeds by a solvent is
significantly improved by high-intensity ultrasound.
and Proteins extraction -
Applicable to: Citrus oil from fruits, oil extraction from ground mustard,
peanut, rape, herb oil (echinacea), canola, soy, corn.
of Phenolic Compounds and Anthocyanins
and enzyme inactivation (preservation) -
Heat generated locally by the cavitation and the created radicals can lead
to an inactivation of enzymes by sonication. Applicable to: preservation
of jam, marmalade or toppings, e.g. for icecream, fruit juices and sauces,
meat products, dairy.
