Extraction principle with ultrasound
Ultrasound is low frequency sound and high power that transform electrical energy into mechanical vibrations.
In the solvent form of micro air bubbles that grow up to implode.
The mechanical effects of ultrasound provide a grater penetration of solvent into cellular meterials and improves mass transfer.
There an additional benefit for the use of power ultrasound in extractive processes witch results from the disruption of biological cell walls to facilitate the release of contents.
The sonication increased the efficincy of extraction and producing a purer product in a shorter time.
