Helping Localizing the Oxidative Desulfurizer
When a solid object, such as an impeller, moves in water at high speed, or when liquid passes through a small hole at high pressure, bubbles are produced in low-pressure areas of the liquid due to changes in pressure and velocity. These bubbles explode in high-pressure areas as they grow, producing very high point energies when they explode; so that the temperature and pressure at the point of bursting bubbles can reach several thousand degrees Celsius and several hundred atmospheres. But because this high energy is released in a point and concentrated manner, the temperature of the whole fluid does not change much.
This energy can be used to homogenize and perform chemical reactions. Among the advantages of using the cavitation phenomenon, we can mention low energy consumption, high processing volume, no need for heating, small dimensions of the device, etc.
One of the applications of this advanced technology is in desulfurization of hydrocarbon liquid sections by Oxidative Desulfurization (ODS) method.
