sonicator

[′sän·ə‚kād·ər]
(engineering acoustics)
An instrument for producing high-intensity ultrasound, consisting of a converter that transforms electrical energy into mechanical energy in the form of oscillation of piezoelectric transducers at a frequency of 20 kilohertz, and a titanium horn that focuses this oscillation and radiates energy into the liquid being treated through a tip.

Table 1 shows the effects of garlic concentration and amplitude of sonicator towards the extracted thiols.
Figure 1 shows the effect of garlic concentration on extraction of thiols by using sonicator. The concentrations of extracted thiols were increased as the amount or garlic concentrations increased (4% w/v (0.132 mM) to 10 %w/v (0.170 mM)).
Two different ultrasonic systems were chosen to disperse the NPs in the base fluid, namely, a probe-type sonicator (VCX 500; 25 kHz, 500 W) and a bath-type sonicator (Powersonic, UB-405; 40 KHz, 350 W).
With wireless technology linked to automatic monitoring kit to monitor things like TDS (total dissolved solids, which if high is a strong indicator of lack of due care and attention by the cooling tower owner/operator), coulter counters, active bacteria destruction kit such as, but not limited to, UV or UV coupled to sonicators or a pressure cylinder (akin to the Hugh's Press) for disrupting possible host eukaryotes (e.g.
