All SFX Series Sonifiers feature a digital, intuitive interface flanked by easy-to-use pushbuttons. The screen and buttons provide one-touch access to all control parameters and modes of operation.
Advanced Control Modes. In Energy Mode, the SFX Series power supply manages the processing cycle to deliver a precise, user-determined input of ultrasonic energy (measured in joules), either continuously or pulsed. The SFX Series automatically
compensates for any variability, extending or shortening the cycle as needed to deliver the precise energy output.
True Temperature Control. (Requires separate temperature probe.) With true temperature control, the SFX Series power supply maintains the temperature of the sample to within a user-specified range, automatically adjusting the ultrasonic pulse length to
regulate the temperature rise and prevent overheating.
Sample-Processing Programs. For assured repeatability and precision on a greater scale, the SFX Series enables users to create and store up to 20 sample-processing programs. Program parameters include continuous or pulsed ultrasonics; time, energy, or
temperature control modes; pulse on-time/energy, off-time, and total on-time/energy; or amplitude as a percentage.
Process Monitoring. In operation, Sonifier SFX Series monitors ongoing processes on a scrollable, digital screen, providing continuous updates of key variables including power level, energy usage, sample temperature, and experiment progress.
Sonifier SFX Series can be equipped with a wide range of specialized tools and accessories to meet specific application requirements.
Disruptor horns: These horns are designed to process a wide variety of applications and are available in standard sizes ranging from 1/2" to 1" in diameter.
Microtips: These smaller, high-intensity tips are ideal for processing smaller samples in Eppendorf vials or similar vessels. Available in stepped or tapered designs, with sizes ranging from 1/8" to 1/4".
Cup horns: These specialized horns permit high-intensity sound to be applied to multiple samples without direct horn contact. Available in 2.0" or 3.0" diameters (3.0" for SFX550 only).
Flow-through horns: These horns offer the ability to pass a process liquid through an intense energy field within the horn itself. Dual ported horns permit the emulsification of two dissimilar liquids in controlled, continuous proportions.
Continuous flow attachment: This temperature-controlled chamber permits continuous processing of a flowing liquid through a high-intensity ultrasonic field.
Sealed atmosphere treatment chambers: These specialty horns have been developed to handle noxious or hazardous samples while isolating them from incidental contact or to contain reactants for metric evaluation.
