The application of ultrasound on industrial scale: cases and directions

One of the most promising technologies in industrial ultrasound use is the connection of polymeric materials: welding by the means of ultrasound. Ultrasound allows you to take advantage of several application methods: welding fittings of hard plastic at a great distance from the place of entry of ultrasound (200-250 mm); welding multilayer structures made of reinforced plastics and soft tissues of artificial materials; welding polymers characterised by complicated welding and/or welded poorly by other welding methods; embedding precision metal parts in plastic; welding polymers on contaminated surfaces, without obligatory pre-cleaning and degreasing.

The main advantage of ultrasonic metal welding is the narrow focus of heat exposure and high repeatability of results, which is especially important for large-scale manufacturing processes and mass production in general. In addition, sonication precludes significant thermal and light radiation during welding with no melted metal mass production in the process. Ultrasound allows to weld similar and dissimilar metals of different thicknesses. The technology is most commonly used in the electronics industry.

Firmware holes and dimensional processing of brittle materials

The technology allows for firmware holes and recesses of various shapes and sizes in the articles of stone, glass, porcelain, ceramics, ferrite and other brittle materials using abrasive powder and tools, vibrating at an ultrasonic frequency.

Processing bottomhole zone wells

The effect of exposure to ultrasound at bottomhole zone is as follows: salt deposits on the walls of pores are broken, thereby increasing the permeability of the formation; acoustic degasification takes place and gas slugs in the capillaries are destroyed while electrostatic layer lowers the surface tension of the liquid in capillaries and reduces viscosity. The set of equipment consists of ultrasonic generator and the radiator shell of special design, placed on a vehicle with bay geophysical logging cable up to 4 miles.

Applications of ultrasound

Here’s the breakdown of industries utilising ultrasonic cleaning equipment according to Hilsonic, a large-scale UK-based manufacturer focused producing ultrasonic cleaner equipment.

  1. Processing industries: mineral processing, enrichment and hydrometallurgical processes metal ores, etc.
  2. Oil and gas industry: oil recovery wells, extraction of viscous oil separation processes in the sand – heavy oil, increasing the fluidity of the heavy oil, etc.
  3. Metallurgy and mechanical engineering: refinement of metal melts, structure refinement ingot / casting, metal surface treatment for its hardening and stress relief, treatment of external and internal surfaces of the cavities of machine parts, etc.
  4. Chemical and biochemical techniques: extraction, adsorption, filtration, drying, emulsification, obtaining suspension, mixing, dispersing, dissolving, flotation, degassing, evaporation, coagulation, coalescence polymerisation and depolymerisation processes, the preparation of nanomaterials, etc.
  5. Energy: combustion of liquid and solid fuel cooking fuel emulsions, the production of biofuels, etc.
  6. Agriculture, food and light industry: the processes of seed germination and plant growth, the preparation of food additives, confectionery technology, the preparation of alcoholic and soft drinks, etc.
  7. Utilities: water recovery wells, potable water, removal of sediment from the inner walls of the heat exchangers, etc.
  8. Environmental protection: waste water, contaminated by petroleum products, heavy metals, persistent organic compounds, purification of contaminated soil, cleaning of industrial gas streams, etc.
  9. Recycling: devulcanisation of rubber, purification of metallurgical slag from oil pollution, etc.

The commandments for reaching your target audience effectively through ads

When choosing Internet marketing tools, advertisers should take into account the specifics of the modern audience. According to recent reports 62% of visitors visit various website while they are at work. So marketing during ‘working time’ can not simply use the traditional methods of video and print advertising. And the traffic is not constant in its entirety. Attendance peaks fall on Monday and Thursday, while the decline falls on Friday. So how can you convey information effectively while your target audience is at work and extremely limited time frames to capture their attention? Here’s what Htpdigital.com, a prominent digital marketing Manchester enterprise with a savvy B2B digital marketing agency department on board, experts say about the techniques for reaching the audience experts say.

Google has admitted that the greatest number of searches is now falling into news category. Previously, entertainment-focused yellow pages were more popular. Now people want to read news on the Internet, and they usually focus on the local news. Territorial separation of the audience is another fact that should be considered. Advertising on news portals has its own characteristics. The audience is serious and tends to take well-structured and concise texts. The main function of advertising is not to attract attention, but to spread the word.

Moreover, the information supplied in the advertisement, must comply with the advertised product. Conventional techniques exaggerating and extolling the qualities of the product are not likely to be totally effective. Content surrounding the news article, must conform to the structure. The ‘ideal’ ad unit must contain the minimum of information, but attract attention at the same time. Short titles, attractive visual characteristics, laser-guided keywords… the tools are many. The basis of modern online advertising account for contextual blocks that appear on resources of relevant topic. This increases the efficiency of advertising by meeting the needs of users and selective approach to the audience. Google and Facebook-caliber services offer advertising based on the query words, geotargeting, tags and more. High efficiency is provided by a content filtering and the audience, but for the fact that the advertisement is displayed only by those potentially interested in the ad block.

While on search pages text blocks are the most appropriate tools, on the news pages the text is lost until it is not at least supplied with a picture. Naturally, modern advertising is all about interactiveness. In this case, using banners is a reasonable way to go. Where banners are very difficult to place in full compliance with the theme of the site and the necessary information, a teaser could be a panacea.

The teaser contains a picture and text (usually non-informative) – a short, ‘teasing’ phrase, or even provocation, but it has to match what you are promoting. Experts say that the greatest harm to the advertising product is brought by ‘deceptive advertising’ when users are interested in teasers, go to the target pages and find nothing in common with what was said in the teaser.
