Flocells offer inline or continuous, large volume, batch sample processing. Flocells are ideal for mixing and dispersing applications. Batch volumes can be recirculated through the system multiple times if increased sonication time is needed. Multiple units can be used in series to reduce processing time and/or maintain an even higher flow rate.
The liquid sample is pumped into the Flocell through the inlet at the bottom of the unit. As the sample passes through the cavitation field, it is processed. The processed liquid exits the unit through an outlet port. The degree of processing can be controlled by adjusting the intensity of sonication as well as flow rate.
The Low Volume Flocell (LVFC) is available for use with either the Q500 or Q700 Sonicator. The Flocell is equipped with ¼” hose barb fittings requires a ½” solid probe (must be ordered separately). The probes features a flange for proper mounting with the LVFC. An optional water jacket is available if the process requires cooling. The water jacket slides over the LVFC and is used to recirculate cold water around the exterior of the flocell body. The water jacket has ¼” hose barb fittings.
The LVFC is recommended for processing sample volumes above 1L. The LVFC has a 65 ml internal volume. The maximum flow rate is 0.5 L / min and the maximum operating pressure is 100 psi.
The High Volume Flocell (HVFC) is available for use with the Q700 system. The Flocell is equipped with 1/2" sanitary connections, a water jacket and a 1” diameter probe (included). The water jacket can be used to recirculate cold water around the exterior of the flocell body. This helps reduce the heat generated during ultrasonic processing.
The HVFC is recommended for processing batch volumes of 5L or more. It has a 400 ml internal volume. The maximum flow rate is 20 L / min and the maximum operating pressure is 100 psi.
PLEASE NOTE: In-line operation requires that the Sonicator be run for an extended period of time, often at high amplitudes, which will cause the converter to heat. For uninterrupted operation, the converter must be cooled with compressed air (5-10 psi at 5-10 cfm).
How do I attach the High Volume Flocell to my line?
You will need to have ½” sanitary fittings on your supply line and matching clamps. They may be of any material suitable for your application.Qsonica 2014-06-17
