The Science

University of Illinios research team led by Professor Suslick has pioneered the exploration of acoustic cavitation shows cavitational collapse produces intense local heating (~5000 K), high pressures (~1000 atm)

Chemistry Induced by Hydrodynamic Cavitation: The study showed hydroxyl radicals and hydrogen peroxide species forming as a result of hydrodynamic cavitation in water. The chemical effects were identical to previous studies into acoustic cavitation.

Free radical chemistry: Radicals are species with a single unpaired electron. A hydroxyl radical is a strong oxidant because it desperately needs to bond with an electron rich molecule.

Paraffin Study: Traditional paraffin removal in wellbores: Because of temperature and pressure differentials between the reservoir and the well-bore, waxy paraffin's often drop out of solution and form a waxy residue on the rods, tubing and flow lines. Continual buildup of paraffin's can lead to well blocking and reduced performance of the reservoir. Traditional techniques have had limited and temporary success:  Read the Study
