FURTHER READING & WATCHING

READING MATERIAL

We are devising a list of scientific papers, webpages, links to abstracts of papers to purchase and books, and any content that is freely available on the internet that substantiate claims we’ve made regarding the CaviMax so that you may do your own research on the subject of hydrodynamic cavitation and come to your own conclusions (we've made a start on the biogas industry below further industries to follow)

The below list of reading material will be by no means exhaustive, should you find anything you think may be of interest please share with us via our contacts page. The science of hydrodynamic engineering which harnesses the tremendous forces yielded by cavitation bubble collapse is exciting business, it's on a journey to fully understanding and realising its potentials, spanning across multiple industries, providing the much needed savings in efficiencies for our worldwide carbon targets, but also playing a vital role in cleaning up any pollution that we have inadvertently left in our wake.

Therefore, papers are being written constantly as each industry becomes aware of hydrodynamic cavitation and wonder how they can apply it to their sector to tap into the potential feedstock savings, process boosting and waste pollution combating properties.

WATCHING MATERIAL

We have been asked by customers for videos and animations regarding cavitation so here you are. Some of these videos demonstrate the destructive forces of cavitation and the problems caused by it, what hydrodynamic cavitation does is control these destructive forces by getting the cavitation event to happen where we want it to. This is done by manipulating the liquid flow rate and obstruction shape and size, enabling the bubble collapse energy to be discharged into a flowing medium rather than on the surface of the metal.  Hence the term – Controlled Hydrodynamic Cavitation.
