Acoustic Bubble Spectrometer
Generation II of the ABS Acoustic Bubble Spectrometer (ABS) is for the measurement of bubble size distributions and void fractions in gas/liquid mixtures. It can be used in a wide variety of applications requiring the monitoring of the bubble population such as aeration, bioreactor, oceanography, chemical engineering, cavitation studies, biological media, food processing, etc. The data sampling rate has been increased nearly five folds, which expands the bubble detection limit below 10 microns radius. All the hardware external to the processing computer has been integrated in one box; and a laptop configuration is now available using an Express Card port.
