A nanobubble generator or as it should be called according the ISO standards, an ultrafine bubble generator is a device that mixes water and a gas and produces nanobubbles. Nanobubbles should be smaller than 200 nano meter to be called a nanobubble. Since 200 nano meters is quite large to be called nanoscopic the name nanobubbles is not completely appropriate. For this reason, the ISO has named a nanobubble and ultrafine bubble. The naming convention follows the same names as for particles.
Basically, there are two types of nanobubble generators, first there are gas-water circulation types of nanobubble generators. Second there is a gas-water pressurization-decompression also often referred to as pressurized dissolution type of nanobubble generator. All units are based on one principle or the other, or a combination of both. In the gas-water circulation type the gas is introduced into a water vortex and the gas bubbles are formed by breaking the vortex. In the pressurized dissolution method, about 5% of gas is under pressure dissolved in water and forms a supersaturated solution. When the water is depressurized, the gas escapes from the water and forms nanobubbles. It's like opening a bottle of beer or a can of coke, the drink in the bottle is depressurized and bubbles are formed. The pressure in a beer or coke is to low to form any nanobubbles.
Acniti sells nanobubble generators with the gas-water circulation type, we have branded them the turbiti series. Acniti also sells the pressurized dissolution nanobubble generators, which are branded as GaLF. GaLF stands for Gas Liquid Foam.

The ozone nanobubble mixer is a nanobubble generator which is specifically designed for the use with ozone. Research with universities has shown, that ozonated nanobubble water, keeps longer its ozone residue in the water than when it is used only with a venturi also the amount of ozone gassing out is reduced.
The turbiti nanobubble generator is a first-class workhorse. Turbiti can be placed in the most demanding environments. The nanobubble generator requires a low head pump, so it's efficient in energy usage. Combined with the benefits of a static mixer, Acniti has implemented their proprietary swirl flow technology to generate efficiently and effectively nanobubbles. The turbiti OEM series gives dealers and partners the opportunity to implement the turbiti into their own equipment. The Turbiti concept gives you a worry free nanobubble solution.
The Turbiti O2 pump skid is the multipurpose ultrafine bubble generator suitable for agriculture, horticulture and fish cultivation sites. Super saturation of oxygen for water day storage tanks in horticulture. Drinking water solutions for chicken, cows, pigs and horses, giving high DO water with ultrafine bubbles to animals with enhance their food digestion more efficiently and results in healthier animals.

There are various technologies to generate nanobubbles (ultrafine bubbles). This article gives an overview of the most used techniques, such as pressurized dissolution, static mixers, and rotational flow.
Osaka Japan based ACNITI LLC, specializing in developing and producing nano bubble technology systems announces its partnership with Vsquare Holding B.V. based in Vollenhove, the Netherlands.
Washing of surfaces and laundry is one of the promising areas were nanobubbles can make a difference in the application. Reducing the amount of detergent, has a positive effect by reducing pollution, washing laundry without detergent, would greatly benefit the environment. Nanobubbles can lower the surface tension of water, the large amounts of oxygen molecules in bubbles charge the water negative.
The miniGALF is IDEC`s entry level GaLF model designed for first experiences with nanobubble technology. The miniGaLF-Plus enables higher concentration of nanobubbles by multi-passes of water through the miniGaLF.

Nanobubbles can be measured by the same technology as measuring small particles. You can measure bubbles by camera (count pixel size) or laser (count blackout time), also as a simple method to know number index, you can refer information of turbidity. When you measure UFB, most common way is to analyze Brownian Motion.
A temple with a beautiful moat in Kyoto, Japan had a group of volunteers maintaining the moat, by cleaning it and doing regular maintenance. Due to the older age of the volunteers, the group stopped moat maintenance around 1998. In the next 20 years no maintenance was done and year by year the situation worsened on one hand natural pollution wasn't removed such as leaves in autumn and excessive uncontrolled water plants growth took place. On the other hand, tourism in Kyoto was on the rise and more and more, litter came in the moat. This led to an uncontrolled situation of bad smell, fish mortality opaque water and the bottom of the moat was invisible. In the summer, algal blooms were becoming more and more frequent.
The custom design ultrafineGalF drinking water, fills the need, for a unit for the food and beverage industry to produce ultrafine bubbles or nanobubbles.
