We do offer commissioning services. Correct commissioning of devices in applications is critical to optimize the plant performance. Units will run without problem from the first day and may be covered by an application guarantee if the device is specified, installed and commissioned in a proper way.

Below is a video of our Sultan Acoustic Wave in a Mining Application. Also, I’m very close to the unit. Remember that the unit has a cone so the sound is directed straight down and therefore you don’t have much sound travelling outside of the beam path. You can see the self-cleaning effect in the video also.Now the reason for the sound is because the transducer is made up of 2 chunks of metal. It has some piezo crystals wedged between them. So it acts like a church bell for example. The metal part is the bell and the crystals the hammer.Above is a pic of the internals of the unit. Every time the stored energy is released to the crystals the crystal pulse or deform slightly and that is the hammer effect and that causes the sound.None of our units will damage anyone’s hearing. These are things that are tested when we design a product. Some people might find it annoying when standing directly in front of the unit, but when does that every happen on site? Also most places make you wear hearing protection…Some don’t hear certain frequencies and then some like hearing the chirp as they know the unit is working.
