Through special geometries of the hydraulic circuit, it is possible to significantly increase the production of heat, up to exceeding any autonomous heating system in energy efficiency.
Among the main applications tested at the laboratory or industrial scale in recent years are:
- Heating, in all its variants (environments, agriculture, industrial processes);
- Food liquids treatment: pasteurization of milk, treatment of food juices, cooking of beer malt, homogenisation and stabilization of wine, cooking of must, elimination of pathogenic bacteria, elimination of spores, all this at significantly lower temperatures than those usually used, therefore preserving to a much greater extent the nutritional properties and organoleptic qualities;
- Treatment of zootechnical wastewater, (reduction of nitrates);
- Purification of contaminating water / sludge, harmful / toxic to human health and the environment.
Numerous scientific works demonstrate how the treatment of sewage with Cavitation can degrade toxic waste substances from the pharmaceutical chemical sector (carbamazepine, ibuprofen, naproxen, ketoprofen, etc.), insecticide chemist (neonicotinoids, DNP, imidacloprid, parathion, DDVP), petrochemical (benzene and its derivatives), chemical-dye (rhodamine B, RR120, AR88, yellow145).
Finally, among the known advantages there are:
- High energy efficiency
- Use of non-stationary cavitation reactors, which allow the circulation and treatment of liquid in industrial volumes;
- Great construction simplicity;
- Low plant costs;
- Very low maintenance required (replacement of the pump / pumps every 10-15 years plus annual checkup);
- Robustness, reliability and scalability (possibility of easily increasing the heat output);
- No practical upper limits for temperature (unlike e.g. heat pumps);
- Constant efficiency, that is independent of both the liquid temperature and the ambient or external temperature;
- Possibility of coupling to autonomous electricity generation systems (photovoltaic, etc.);
- Absence of emissions into the atmosphere
