Ultrasound Technology for Cooling Water Treatment
IIC - Independent International Consultants Ltd

Ultrasound

Ripples of waterA technology which is being developed for cooling water treatment is the use of Ultrasound or Sonoluminescence.

Ultrasound frequencies operate at greater than 16kHz and when this energy is applied to water a cavitation process occurs creating high local pressures and temperatures which result in the emission of light and highly reactive radicals.

Sonoluminescence has been used as a microbiological control treatment in cooling water systems and more recently as a total replacement technology for conventional chemical water treatment programmes.

IIC Limited has direct experience of the application of ultrasound for cooling water treatment and can therefore support clients who may be interested in this approach.
