HyCator® reactor is inspired by biomimicry. In nature, a snapping shrimp(Alpheidae) attacks its prey by hydrodynamic cavitation...by shooting a jet of water by snapping its claw which causes cavitation bubbles to form.(bernoulli’s principle). These bubbles collapse as the pressure recovers with the decrease of the fluid velocity: the localised temperature at the point of collapse is more than 10000deg C which is more than twice the surface temperature of the sun, the pressure is more than 5000 bars, the turbulence is more than 3 to 4 machs and free radicals are formed.

We mimic the Snapping Shrimp to create millions of precisely tailored bubbles. We make the bubble travel in a particular direction, to a particular distance, grow it to a particular size and then collapse it in such a way that at every point of a flowing fluid inside our reactor a bubble is collapsing to create precise conditions for modulating physical, chemical and biological transformations.

HyCa’s core innovation is the HyCator® design algorithm that allows it’s reactors to create targeted cavitation bubbles required for the specific needs of the process. 

HyCator® reactor system can be retrofitted to make processes more effective and efficient by reducing treatment time and costs as well as usage of chemicals in an environment friendly way.

Scientific and technical description of the technological innovation

In a flowing fluid or slurry when the ambient pressure goes below the vapor pressure, a cavitation void or “bubbles” form. On recovery of the ambient pressure, this bubble collapses with an intense localized energy release, which has temperatures to the extent of several thousand degrees, pressures of several hundred bars and huge turbulence.

We know how to create and collapse precisely tailored bubbles to modulate the pressure, temperature, turbulence and formation of free radicals due to the phenomena. This knowledge is used to transform physical, chemical and biological processes in a more efficient and effective way using our HyCator® reactors.
