Hielscher Ultrasonics GmbH
Hielscher Ultrasonics is a family owned business, located
in Teltow near Berlin (Germany). The main emphasis of its
activities is the conception, development and production of
ultrasonic devices for the use in laboratory and industrial
applications. Technological innovations together with the
realization of new ultrasound based processes substantiated the
company growth and its market acceptance. Today, ultrasonic devices
made by Hielscher Ultrasonics are being used in laboratories
and production plants on all continents across the world.
Hielscher Ultrasonics integrates the ultrasonic devices into
complex ultrasonic systems, such as wire cleaning systems, too.
Hielscher offers ultrasonic mixing reactors for the production of
biodiesel at any scale. The ultrasonic mixing improves mass
transfer and reaction kinetics leading to faster
transesterification and higher yield. It saves excess methanol and
catalyst. Hielscher offers Ultrasonic mixing reactors for oil and
Methanol. In the future Hielcher expect a growing market for
pre-treatment of biomass on large biogas plants.
Role in project and experience:
Based on experience from using ultrasound to optimize biodiesel
production, Hielscher will develop their ultrasound technology to
increase process rates and improve biomass digestibility within the
Hielscher has extended experience in product development, and in
bringing new technologies to the market. Hielscher will contribute
from WP 1 through WP5.
Hielscher has an office in the US which could accelerate
penetration of the US market.
