Hydrodynamic Cavitation with the MACH explained

Cavitation is not something usually applied within the metallurgical industry, but Gold Ore has found a way to harness this powerful energy and use it for greatness!

This technology is completely different from the traditionally and widely known principles with unparalleled levels of efficiency. This energy is used positively within the MACH REACTOR™ to clean particle surfaces, break particles for better liberation, emulsify reagents, and dissolve gas.

Hydrodynamic cavitation is the process of accelerating a liquid through a constriction such as a venturi until the instantaneous pressure drops to below water vapor pressure and causes tiny cavities to nucleate on hydrophobic particles in the liquid.

This process is otherwise known as ‘cold boiling’.

These cavities may be ventilated with a gas to be dissolved and are finely disseminated when the cavities collapse in higher pressure regions and form pico-, nano- and micro-bubbles with a tremendous energy release.

This energy is used positively within the MACH REACTOR™ to clean particle surfaces, break particles for better liberation, emulsify reagents, and dissolve gas.

The imploding cavitating bubbles in the venturis of the MACH REACTOR™ constitute the ‘heart of the MACH REACTOR™’. These imploding bubbles generate extreme temperatures of up to 5 500°C and pressures of around 1 000 atmospheres.

This creates a highly reactive environment for mass transfer and chemical reaction allowing certain reactions to take place that would otherwise not be possible. The MACH REACTOR™ uses this power of cavitation to drastically improve your metallurgical processes!

What more is there other than to say that the MACH is essential for your metallurgical operation, and the industry NEEDS this type of innovation.
