The special feature of our new processor is that it is very efficient because it develops high power sound without getting hot and wasting energy.
Water can be sterilised with ultrasound by destroying bacteria without using chemicals. It does this by using a process called cavitation to kill the bacteria by breaking them into small pieces. Cavitation occurs when ultrasound creates thousands of unstable micro-bubbles in a liquid. They collapse with explosive force causing localised disruption to anything they contact.
We are working closely with the National Physical Laboratory in Middlesex, England throughout the current phase of testing and development. Results of the most recent water-treatment tests show improvement on current systems that only remove up to 98% of particles in the liquid and require repeated cycling around the process.
Dr Bajram Zeqiri, Senior Ultrasonics Scientist at the National Physical Laboratory, said “pursuing the last 2% of particles removal is the Holy Grail in ultrasonic cleaning and this product is looking promising. The system invented by Henry is a simple but potentially effective solution to the problem of treating liquids with Ultrasound".
Our ultrasonic processor aims to deliver 100% removal from a single clean.
Engineer Henry Ratcliff came up with the Ultrasonic Processor idea having worked in the industry for most of his life. He approached us for help in protecting the concept and to establish a route-to-market for it. Sadly, Henry passed away in late 2006, but we continue to work with his sons to realise his dream.
