A&B Process Systems is blending their process systems with Pursuit Dynamic's PDX sonic shockwave technology to create a process system that can mix, disperse, heat rapidly, emulsify, and pump simultaneously.

Benefits of PDX Sonic Technology:

  • Dramatic reduction in production times
  • Step change in energy efficiency
  • Maintenance saving (can replace homogenizers, pumps, high shear mixers, direct steam injection, etc...)
  • Enhanced particulate integrity
  • Improved cooking quality - no contact heat surfaces or hotspots
  • Reduced plant footprint
  • Zero cook-on
  • Reduced waste and ingredient costs
  • CIP compatible, all materials approved food grade
  • Rapid dispersion and dissolution of powders
  • Simultaneous pasteurization and emulsification
  • No moving parts allows rapid heating without damaging particulates

How PDX Sonic Works:

The driving force behind PDX is a supersonic vapor flow and shockwave, generated using steam. This low pressure energy wave can be used to transport material and entrain or mix multiple flows. There are no moving parts to clog or block and the unrestricted bore makes cleaning quick and easy.

Steam is introduced into a special annular "conditioning" chamber that is wrapped around the core of the PDX unit. From here, it is injected into the pumped fluid, such as water or oil, creating momentum transfer and starting the pumping action. With increased steam flow, the steam exit velocity becomes supersonic and starts to form a controllable shock wave. This shockwave continues to grow and forms a low density, low pressure, supersonic velocity zone across the bore diameter, increasing energy transfer and introducing the unique capabilities.
