Hydrodynamic cavitation technology - further applications
Hydrodynamic cavitation technology does not just provide benefits for the anaerobic digestion industry, process uplifts can be achieved across a wide variety of processes with varying outcomes dependent upon the application.
The reason we love this technology, is that with a little tweak of the stator inside the rotor, fluids can be manipulated in different ways and particle size reduction from the macro to micro and even nano scale are achievable.
We've included some of our technology partner companies brochures to down load at the bottom of this page to give you an idea of the versatility of hydrodynamic cavitation technology.

Due to the wide variety of applications of hydrodynamic cavitation (HDC), this list is by no means the limit to what we can achieve. CaviMax has a fully global engineering integration division, and service team, that can work with you to realise your vision to decarbonise and upscale your process.
The research is ongoing, and the body of evidence per sector is showing only one thing...hydrodynamic cavitation can make a difference, not only at the company scale, but for whole countries to lower their carbon emissions by adopting this simple yet very effective process intensification technology across multiple sectors and industries.
Our vision is that in time hydrodynamic cavitation will be taught as a mainstream engineering / chemistry / food production / biorefining / circular economy subject, and that cavitators will be as ubiquitous as the vacuum cleaner, television or the jet engine.
We would like to see hydrodynamic cavitation taught as a module of Mechanical Engineering and Chemical Engineering in Universities and Higher Education establishments not just in the UK, but worldwide.
This technology has the potential to decarbonise multiple industries, twinned with further upstream or down stream integrated PROCESS INTENSIFICATION technologies (if you are not already familiar with the term process intensification - look it up), we can upscale the burgeoning bioindustry and do more with less across most industries, the applications for (dynamic) hydrodynamic cavitation are diverse and widely researched.
Why are there not more processes utilising HDC? Because up until E-Pic designed the CaviLab (laboratory scale hydrodynamic cavitation reactor) research has mainly been carried out using acoustic,sono and venturi equipment, generally research papers end with the caveat...."this experiment shows that this process can be enabled / intensified by acoustic cavitation, however acoustic cavitation cannot be scaled up to industrial or commercial sized operations due to the energy required and the reduced penetration of the acoustic effects at higher volumes, to scale up hydrodynamic cavitation is required."
Well, now there is a laboratory scale cavitator available The CaviLab, which gives the same results in the laboratory as in the field, so your research can be commercialised and scaled up.
We have our own cavitation R&D departments in the UK and Turin, Italy, we can carry out trials, but we don't want to be the only experts, we don't need to keep this light under a bushel, we want new leaders to emerge to take on this technology, there is room in this dicipline to grow and improve. So please get in touch, procure a labscale hydrodynamic cavitator for your for your academic and commercial reasearch and development.
You can be part of the solution to combating climate change, to reduce energy usage, make feedstocks go further and also use the machine to increase energy production of biofuels.
