- Manufacture pesticide and insecticide nanoemulsions on laboratory, bench and industrial scales.
- Make fully water-compatible products with improved safety, diffusion and bioefficacy characteristics.
- Reduce toxicity to operators and the environment while increasing potency and lowering costs.
Most active pesticide and insecticide ingredients are not water-soluble and, as such, not directly suitable for pest control. In order for these ingredients to become effective, a delivery system (a formulation that makes them water-compatible, thereby improving their wettability, diffusion, safety and bioefficacy characteristics) is generally required. Among different formulations, nano-emulsified pesticides and insecticides offer the best target site delivery efficiency, which allows lower amounts to produce greater effects and, therefore, to decrease the environmental burden and cost to farmers. The formation of nanoemulsions, however, requires specialized equipment capable of bringing the original active ingredient droplet sizes down to the nanometer scale.
Industrial Sonomechanics® offers laboratory, bench, and industrial ultrasonic liquid processors for the efficient production of high-quality water-compatible pesticide and insecticide nanoemulsions. The processors are based on our patented Barbell Horn® Ultrasonic Technology (BHUT), which makes it possible to directly implement laboratory accomplishments in the production environment, guaranteeing reproducible and predictable results at any scale of operation.

“ISM supplied us with their industrial-scale ultrasonic processor, ISP-3000, which we have been using to make nutraceutical and cosmetic products, as well as for essential oil extraction and several similar applications for over a year. With this processor, the efficiency of plant oil extraction, emulsification and solids’ dispersion is superb, enabling us to make products comprising dozens of different oils, solid powders and water. The products seem to remain permanently stable and have many other enhanced properties: our customers consistently report superior taste, texture and overall performance.”
