Equipment characterisation

Measurements to support process optimisation and scale-up

The successful scale-up and quality assurance of industrial ultrasound-based processes relies heavily on the characterisation of the ultrasonic fields and associated physical processes,such as cavitation.. NPL has a wide range of measurement capabilities to support this characterisation and enable correlation with process benefits. These include:

  • Hydrophone based mapping of acoustic fields
  • Characterisation of ultrasonic cleaning systems, as per standards such as NHS HTM 01-01 and 01-06, and IEC TS 63001
  • Cavitation measurement and mapping using the NPL cavitation sensors and instrumentation
  • Field imaging using sonochemiluminescence

                                Imaging the effect of ultrasound frequency using sonoluminescence
