Experimental Analysis of a Cavitation Device

Menatech Limited has been instrumental in the development and optimisation of a cavitation device designed to generate a powerful acoustic energy release mechanism focused to break down unwanted elements in a water flow.

A hydrophone, data logger and power spectrum analyser was employed to measure the intensity of the cavitation in various geometry variations. The real-time monitoring and control system allowed the development of a suitable design which increased the cavitation events 5-fold and the magnitude of pressure pulses 10-fold with no additional energy input.
