Using Of Ultrasonic Bath In Raw Birdnest Cleaning !!!

Why cant we accelerate the raw nest processing from say 3 hours to 1 hour per nest?

Is there any scientific equipment available in the market to clean those minute particles by simply pushing a sonic waves that causes the cleaning medium a kind of cavitation or microscopic vacuum bubble?

The unswer is yes and the gadget is "Ultrasonic Bath".

Today I took some time to meet a very new blog reader who wanted me to deliver one of the hard cover "Swiftlets of Borneo" book.

We chat for almost 1 1/2 hours and among some of the interesting things he spoke about was about this new gadget being used in raw birdnest processing methods.

According to him he visited a Raw Nest Processing center in Johor Bahru and the owner showed him how to cut the processing time from 3 hours to less then 1 hour a nest.

The method used was ultrasonic bath treatment.

First the raw nests were place in a dry bath in a tray mold that allows about 60 nests to be placed in the bath container. Once these nests were ready, special liquid (ozonised water) will flood the container until all the raw nests were submerged.

Once ready the top cover was closed and the vibration starts. It takes not more then 15 minutes to remove all those fine particles and dirt from these raw nests.

Once the 15 minutes was over, the nests will be rinsed and transferred to the general worker to remove those large size dirt's (mainly feathers). This process takes less then one hour to complete.

The nests shape were not deformed.

I am very interested to know more about this new technique. If this method can cut down the process time I am sure all BH owners should own one of the ultrasonic bath.

The process currently is undergoing a test and I hope the day will come where this new technique can be market to all those who wish to process their raw birdnest at home.....

Dear Mr Harry,

Your blogspot has aroused my interest in swiftlet rearing.

I stay on the 11 floor of a highrise apartment in Kuala Lumpur I am seeing swiftlets flying around the area. The apartment is a big one and I am thinking of converting the master bedroom in a BH.

What is you advise please.
