Q2000 Sonicator

Manufactured in the United States

Overview

The Q2000 offers the ability to process industrial-scale sample volumes in individual batches or flow-through applications. This system is recommended for processing volumes of 5L or larger. Routine applications include emulsification, cell lysis, degassing, homogenization, solubilizing, deagglomerating and dispersing.

This model is available with a 100um amplitude, 1.5 inch diameter, 10 inch long probe for batch volumes or a flocell accessory for inline processing. A booster is included with the Q2000. The booster increases the amplitude of the probe which enables larger volumes to be processed.

The Q2000 Sonicator allows the user to program processing times and a full range of intensity settings. Processing time can be set from 1 second to 10 hours. A pulsing feature is standard. Pulsing can reduce the amount of heat generated by sonication when processing temperature sensitive samples. A temperature monitoring probe option is also available.

  • PROGRAMMABLE OPERATION - Set time and amplitude for hands free operation
  • PULSE MODE - Prevent heat buildup in temperature sensitive samples
  • DIGITAL AMPLITUDE / INTENSITY CONTROL - Output intensity can be set from 20-100%
  • ELAPSED TIME INDICATOR - Displays duration of sonication
  • DISPLAY OF WATTAGE AND JOULES - Real-time energy monitoring
  • OVERLOAD PROTECTION - Prevents damage to circuitry if a fault occurs
  • TEMPERATURE MONITORING - Optional temperature prob

    The unit includes a #4677 probe and booster and may also be purchased with or without a flowcell, but the unit will not function without a probe and booster. Please note the stand is sold separately.

    PLEASE NOTE: There is a 4 week lead time on Q2000 Sonicator units. Expedited processing, which decreases the lead time to 2 weeks, is offered for an additional $200. The Q2000 is only available in 220V line voltage. The Q2000 requires a fused, single phase 3-terminal grounding type electrical outlet capable of supplying 50/60 Hz at 220 volts, or 240 volts. Due to the high power of the Q2000, its operation requires that the converter be cooled with compressed air (5-10 psi at 5-10 cfm).

    FAQ

      

    I have a high-temperature application. What is the maximum temperature that I can operate the probe in?

    The probe itself can withstand temperatures as high as 140°F / 60°C. Higher temperature applications can be accommodated, but they require a custom probe. Please contact us with the details of your application to see if a special probe can be designed for it.

      

    How viscous of a substance can a Sonicator homogenize?

    A good rule of thumb is if you can’t pour it then you can’t sonicate it. Substances with approximately the viscosity of honey (around 4000 cps) are the most viscous substances that a Sonicator can effectively process.

     

    Is the Q2000 UL listed or CSA approved?

    Not explicitly, but all Sonicators are cTUVus certified. This certification combines the common UL and CSA standards for electronic equipment and is accepted as equivalent for most regulatory purposes.

     

    How frequently does the ultrasonic horn (probe) need to be replaced?

    Unfortunately that doesn't have a set answer. There are too many variables that effect the life of a horn and Qsonica has never done a study on the life span of a horn. Under light use and an application that is easy on the horn, an ultrasonic horn might last years. With continuous use and an unfavorable application, it might only last days.

    The life span of a horn is dependent on multiple factors, including but not limited to:

    • The presence of solids. Particulate will wear the horn. The larger, harder, and more concentrated the particulate, the faster the wear.
    • Acidic solutions will wear the horn faster than neutral or basic solutions.
    • Using the probe at higher amplitude will wear the horn faster.
    • The size of the probe. Smaller diameter horns wear faster than large ones, as they operate at higher amplitudes and have less titanium available to wear.

    Ultimately, you will need to empirically determine how long your horn will last in your application. You'll know it needs replacing when your processing starts to become less efficient.
