Until recently, traditional high-intensity and fixed-frequency ultrasound has been applied in fields such as cleaning, plastic welding, mixing, and homogenization. However, new industrial ultrasound-related applications, such as sonochemistry, extractions, and waste water treatment, among others, are becoming increasingly important, where traditional fixed-frequency ultrasonic systems are showing certain limitations.
