GREEN ICEBERG > UNIQUENESS OF ULTRA FINE BUBBLES

The uniqueness of Ultra Fine Bubbles


 

Ultra Fine Bubble Bubble Technologies is a New and Emerging science, capable of infusing UFB in Liquids for longer periods of time. Our UFB Generators permits infusion of various gases such as Oxygen, Ozone, Co2, Nitrogen and Hydrogen into Liquids at extremely high concentrations.

 

 

Nano Bubbles, as the name implies, are extremely small gas bubbles in liquid – so small in fact that millions of nanobubbles can fit inside one micron (micro) bubble! Nano Bubbles or more correctly Ultra Fine Bubbles (UFB) have several unique physical properties that make them very different from a normal bubble. Most notable of which is their long stable lifespan in the liquid due to their very low buoyancy and negatively charged surface (zeta potential). The concept of UFB is not new. The application and utilization of UFB in various industries are vast and proven to be highly beneficial. Years of studies have already documented their physical attributes and effects in a broad range of applications. Citing some of these physical attributes of UFB are:

 

Neutral Buoyancy
A singular UFB has little to no buoyancy. Rather than rising vertically they can remain suspended in liquid for months at a time.

 

High Internal Gas Pressure
The smaller the bubble size, the higher the internal pressure and better the gas to liquid transfer rates are. UFB increase the PO2 values in water to the greater extent than that of microbubbles.

 

 

 

Decrease Frictional Drag
The presence of UFB in fluids have shown to decrease friction and drag

 

Large Interfacial Surface Area
With a decreasing bubble diameter, the surface area increases and contributes to the gas dissolution fraction.

 

Increased Gas Dissolution Rates
The smaller the bubble size, the faster the gas dissolution rate is

 

Negatively Charged Surface

 


 

Formation of Free Radicals
As the zeta potential of a bubble increases the ion concentrations around the UFB increase, causing excess ions to be formed and the creation free radicals.

 

Bioactivity Effects
UFB has been shown to enhance the growth rates of mammals, fish, crustaceans and mollusks via the promotion of blood flow and the production of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1).

 

Alteration of Liquid Viscosity
The presence of UFB in water decreases the viscosity and surface tension of the fluid due to a cluster cleavage of the hydrogen bonds among the water molecules and ionization of any chemicals in the water.
