InPhase Solutions and Weber Ultrasonics granted IFU contract on high power ultrasound prototype development

Trondheim 2015-05-08.

InPhase Solutions AS, in partnership with Weber Ultrasonics GmbH, has been granted an industrial R&D (IFU) project from Innovation Norway.

The goal of the project is to develop a first series of prototypes of a high power ultrasound transducer capable of withstanding high temperature (150⁰C) and high pressure (70MPa).

High power ultrasound is used in a wide variety of applications ranging from cleaning jewelry and automotive parts, sewage processing, fabric and food cutting, to welding and machining. It also has a potential for improved drilling, enhanced oil recovery, drilling fluid processing and many other applications within oil & gas and other industries.

“This project represents a new development for high power ultrasound into higher temperature and pressure regimes, and constitutes a technology enabler for new applications. State-of-the-art technology is limited to about 100⁰C and 1MPa. We hope the new solution can open up new markets within ultrasonic cleaning, oil & gas, and potentially other applications as well” says InPhase project manager Marco M. Voormolen.

“We are very enthusiastic about this project, and delighted to be collaborating with such a distinguished and experienced company as Weber Ultrasonics. Joining forces creates value for both companies by new technology and potentially new business”, states InPhase CEO Svein-Erik Måsøy.
