Ability to control the symmetrical sonochemical reactor for physico-chemical treatment of chemically pure water, and also true and colloidal aqueous solutions are described. Such reactors are useful, for example, in food industry, where different concentrations of NaCl solutions are processed. It is demonstrated that the development allows to get the highest acoustic power dissipated on the cavitation and maximum performance of reactor by nonparametric control cavitation without increasing the electrical power input. Effect is achieved due to the fact that the phases of emitters are always shifted in regard to each other in a predetermined angle.

Keywords: sonochemical reactor, nonparametric control cavitation
