What’s New With Airable? – Sonicators

July 18, 2022 Ohio Soybean Council

This week in the lab, Airable received an ultrasonic homogenizer from U.S Solid. Ultrasonic homogenizers, or sonicators, are instruments used to dissolve solutes into solvents. Sonicators apply sound energy to agitate particles in a sample. The tool can mix solutions, dissolve solids into liquids, and remove dissolved gas from liquids. The vibration helps speed chemical reactions and break intermolecular bonds, dissolving particles. Sonication can also boost the disruption of oil droplets, creating stable emulsions and microemulsions. Airable will use the new equipment to homogenize soy-based waxes and soy-based lubricants, developing formulations with improved physiochemical properties.
