Weber Entec GmbH & Co. KG is a subsidiary of Weber Ultrasonics AG – one of the global leaders in ultrasonic components. Focus of the company is the plant construction of ultrasound based applications in environment technology, especially ultrasonic treatment of biogenic materials – known as disintegration. Because of its broad range of performance, the company is a one-stop source for manufacturing, plant construction, sales, system analysis and process optimisation.
Increased yield and reduced costs with ultrasonic disintegration
Ultrasonic disintegration is causing cell lysis, which increases the substrate surface. Thus, the organic degradation accelerates, which in consequence leads to an increased biogas yield. In addition, the release of exo-enzymes from the outer cell layer increases enzyme activity in the digester.
BioPush ultrasounic reactor:
Inhomogeneous substrates with a high dry matter content are a particular challenge for ultrasonic technology. With conventional systems, e.g. those equipped with rod transducers, the expansion of the cavitation field is severely limited. As a result, the full ultrasonic output cannot be emitted. The BioPush ultrasonic reactor, which forms the technological heart of the DesiUS, generates a homogeneous cavitation field through powerful planar transducers. This technique is thereby proven to be far superior to the rod transducer technique conventionally used in other applications. The special design of the BioPush reactor avoids any kind of obstruction, thus making the ultrasonic unit 100 % maintenance-free.
DesiUS (disintegration ultrasound system)
The term “DesiUS” stands for “disintegration ultrasound system”. The disintegration process which forms the basis of DesiUS was developed by Weber Ultrasonics in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute, and was optimised by Weber Entec through the use of the BioPush reactor.
