Review of methods of degassing of working fluids




ultrasound, ultrasonic treatment, decontamination, ultrasonic cavitation, ultrasonic emitter


The article discusses known methods of degassing working fluids. A brief description of known degassing methods is given, an analysis of their advantages and disadvantages is provided. Emphasis is placed on the ultrasonic method of degassing, which is implemented with the help of low-amplitude and high-amplitude ultrasonic emitters. Illustrative photo materials of an experimental study of the ultrasonic method of degassing with the involvement of piezoelectric transducers are presented. The need for additional work to increase the efficiency of ultrasonic degassing by means of an experimental study of the influence of the frequency, amplitude and intensity of ultrasonic oscillations on the degassing process is formulated.
