Milton, NY – November, 2008 – Sono-Tek Corporation, the Industry’s Leader in Ultrasonic Atomizing Systems, announces immediate availability of the SonicSyringe Ultrasonic Dispersion Syringe Pump (patent pending).
The latest addition to Sono-Tek’s innovative technology used in research and development processes and advanced energy manufacturing solutions worldwide, the SonicSyringe is designed to quickly disperse particles in a mixture and hold them evenly suspended for several hours or more. The ultrasonic system disperses agglomerated particles quicker and more uniformly than magnetic stirring or sonic baths commonly used for the same applications. The system’s high frequency ultrasonic vibrations hold particles suspended for longer periods of time as well, improving process quality by delivering consistent particle suspension characteristics during the entire coating process. These attributes make the system ideal for deagglomeration of nanoparticles and catalyst slurries that have a tendency to clump and are difficult to keep evenly dispersed in solution during liquid delivery.
- Common applications for SonicSyringe are:
- Nano-suspensions used in thin film solar cell manufacturing
- Fuel cell catalyst suspensions
- Carbon inks
- Carbon nanotubes
- Slurries with particle sizes up to 25 microns
The system can be fully integrated with Sono-Tek’s ultrasonic nozzle coating equipment, providing a complete inline spraying solution.
CEO Christopher L. Coccio, PhD, said, “We are excited about the recent introduction of SonicSyringe, with several of our customers in the solar cell and fuel cell manufacturing industries now using the product with great success. We believe SonicSyringe has unique attributes that no other liquid delivery product on the market can provide and we are finding new applications for the product regularly.”
With thousands of ultrasonic coating systems installed throughout the world, Sono-Tek has gained a reputation of innovation and leadership in thin film coating equipment.
