Why use the Sonolator?
The device above is our Model JetPilot 6500 Sonolator that uses high pressure, fluid acceleration and hydrodynamic cavitation to emulsify and homogenize fluids. Sonic Corporation is the only company that designs and fabricates Multiple-Feed Homogenizing Systems that meter various fluids with accurate ratio control at the high pressures typically required to make proper emulsions. Using this approach allows you to meter water, the binder liquid and a surfactant simultaneously under pressure to create instant emulsions. In a typical batch approach, the water and binder fluid are transferred to a batch tank and heated. Agitation is applied over time to form the emulsion, which is then cooled before final transfer and application to the fiberglass insulation.
With a Sonolator System featuring 3 PD pumps and flow meters, the water is drawn directly from factory water supply without wasting valuable tank space. The binder fluid is drawn directly from storage and can be heated inline using electric heaters. Surfactant, if needed, is metered as a third liquid stream. All 3 feeds enter the Sonolator high-pressure mixing chamber at the same time at the correct ratio to form the emulsion instantly. Because the water is ambient the heat balance results in a low final product temperature.
