Cavitation Technologies, Inc. (CTi) is an innovative leader in processing liquids, fluidic mixtures, emulsions and suspended solids. The Company focuses on the practical implementation of in-house innovations and breakthroughs and sees its main mission as addressing the current and future needs of major industries. Founded in 2007, CTi designs and manufactures state-of-the-art, flow-through, robust, hydrodynamic cavitation-based devices and systems; the Company develops high-efficiency processing technologies for use in edible oil refining, algal oil extraction and renewable fuel production, biodiesel, alcoholic beverage enhancement, water treatment and expeditious petroleum upgrading. The Company is committed to operating in a responsible manner that ameliorates its environmental impact and pioneers technologies that save and protect natural resources.
The Company has commercialized its patent-pending CTi Nano Neutralization® process, offering the refiners of edible oils and fats significant yield improvements, substantial cost savings and environmental benefits. As an add-on to existing neutralization systems, the Company’s patented Nano Reactor ® allows refiners to significantly reduce the processing costs, increase the yield and perfect the oil’s quality. The Desmet Ballestra Group, the leading global solutions provider for the edible oil and fats and biodiesel industries, has partnered with CTi to market this breakthrough technology worldwide to large-scale facilities.
CTi's core technology encompasses the utilization of hydrodynamic cavitation. Cavitation can be of different origins, for instance: acoustic (usually, ultrasound-induced), hydrodynamic or generated with laser light, accelerated particles, an electrical discharge or steam injection. Hydrodynamic cavitation comprises the nucleation, fluid’s vaporization and growth, pulsation, if any, and collapse of bubbles which occurs in a flowing fluid as a result of a decrease and subsequent increase in its static pressure. Hydrodynamic cavitation can be achieved by passing the liquid through a constricted zone at sufficient velocity and onsets after the static pressure of the liquid has decreased to the saturated vapor pressure. The important characteristics of applied cavitation are the number of cavitation events in a flow unit, and the surface tension and the size of bubbles, which range from ten nanometers to a few microns or even larger in diameter. The collapse of the bubbles results in a localized significant increase in pressure and temperature. The combination of elevated pressure and temperature, along with vigorous mixing supplied by the hydrodynamic cavitation, triggers and accelerates numerous reactions and processes. Each bubble can be described as an independent miniature reactor, in which chemical and physical alterations take place. The further transformations result from the reactions and processes occurring in the adjacent layers of vapor/liquid. While extreme pressure or heat can be unfavorable, the outcome of controlled cavitation-assisted processing has been shown to be exceptionally beneficial.
Skid Systems available starting capacity 14400gal/day or 54.5 m3/day
At the present time, with energy costs rapidly rising, it is highly desirable to reduce both treatment time and energy consumption to secure a profit margin as large as possible. CTi designs and builds advanced, highly specialized, multi-stage, robust, flow-through cavitation devices, reactors and systems to serve the diverse needs of both large-scale plants and small-scale producers. The versatility of the Company’s devices and the flexibility of their designs will meet the most stringent process requirements. CTi’s patent-pending oil refining technologies and patented flow-through multi-stage Nano Reactor® devices exhibit both superior performance and remarkable reproducibility. The systems currently commercialized by CTi may find many valuable, unique and environmentally friendly applications.
The cavitation number at which the inception of cavitation occurs is known as the cavitation inception number Cvi. Ideally, cavitation inseption occurs at Cvi = 1 and there are significant effects at Cv less than 1.
However, cavitation has been found to occur at higher cavitation number (in the range 2-4), due to the presence of dissolved gases.

One of the major challenges facing mankind today is to provide clean water to a vast majority of the population around the world. The treatment of wastewater prior to discharge and its reuse have become absolute necessities. CTi put a substantial R&D effort into designing a patented Cavitation & Electrocoagulation System for industrial water treatment...
A major competitive advantage is our patented multistage cavitation reactors and patented process which we use for transesterfication in production of biodiesel.

More efficient and more cost effective process for producing biofuels, in particular bioalcohol, using hydrodynamic flow trough cavitation.
Cannabis extract medicine has been used for generations to help treat a variety of conditions, and its popularity has increased quite a bit in recent years. Much of this increased popularity can be traced to Rick Simpson‘s public campaign in favor of what he referred to as “hemp oil.”
Last year, a group of researchers from the University of Siena (Italy) and Leiden University (Netherlands) completed a study comparing some of the most commonly used extraction solvents. Their results were published in the journal Cannabinoids.
There are a number of alternative extraction methods that have gained popularity in recent years – some intended for inhalation (butane, CO2, propane, etc), and others geared toward oral ingestion (ethanol, olive oil, coconut oil, etc.). It should come as no surprise that each substance reacts differently when used as a solvent, and the final product can be greatly affected by the process used to extract the highly coveted cannabis oil.
Researchers Test Efficacy Of Various Cannabis Extract Solvents
With this in mind, the European research team investigated the effectiveness of four extraction solvents – naphtha, petroleum ether, ethanol and olive oil. Lab test results from each final product were then analyzed for their respective cannabinoid and terpene content.
“Water (solvent) and Ethanol (solvent) were determined to be the most effective, largely because of their ability to produce an extract with a high terpene content. Perhaps more importantly, both substances are safe for consumption.”
Water extraction and ethanol extraction were determined to be the most effective, largely because of their ability to produce an extract with a high terpene content. Perhaps more importantly, both substances are safe for consumption.
Water and grain alcohol is the healthiest extraction methods. It also produces an oil rich in magnesium ions.
The unique physical process and cavatition wave can break or deform plant cell tissues and enhance the strength of solute particle vibration, acceleration shock and sound pressure. Local extreme high temperature and pressure formed on materials make large-volume herbal medicines fully exposed to the cavitation, which accelerates uniform precipitation of active ingredients and significantly increases extraction rate compared with traditional techniques. Cavitation extraction works under normal temperature and effectively reduces the loss of heat-sensitive components.
