Welcome to

soniccatch and sonicwipe by usePAT optimise measurements in industrial liquids for enhanced process control.

process optimisation by usePAT

soniccatch is an ultrasonic trap to make

small particles measurable directly in

industrial liquids.

sonicwipe is an ultrasonic cleaning device

for sensors to keep their surface clear

within industrial liquids.

We offer add-on devices for the improvement of in-line measurements in PAT (Process Analytical Technology) systems. They are compatible with a variety of sensors and can be designed and adapted to the specific needs and requirements of many fields of application. In order to facilitate the process of real-time measuring, our technology takes advantage of well-controlled ultrasonic fields for spatial particle manipulation in liquids.


Based on this, we provide products that have the ability to gather desired particles in specific areas of an ultrasound field thus forming a small (but concentrated) transient sample. This enables the retrieval of real-time data directly on those agglomerated particles, which provide a similar signal to that of sediments, or the de-populated area close by (solid vs. liquid signal).


Another feature of our devices is the ability to remove undesired aggregates from sensor-surfaces and their further maintenance regarding cleanness. Therefore, the implementation of our technology leads to an increase in the selectivity, stability and sensitivity of the whole data-requirement process (e.g. in continuous production lines), which is especially important for any data driven industry.
