StarStream selected to be presented to HRH Prince Andrew at the recent Royal Society’s Labs to Riches event

Ultrawave have been working in collaboration with the University of Southampton to develop advanced products using StarStream, an ultrasonic cleaning nozzle. This technology works by delivering a stream of water, charged with both ultrasound and bubbles directly onto the cleaning surface, significantly improving the cleaning power of water with reduced additives and heating.

StarStream" was one of the three inventions selected by the Royal Society to present to HRH Prince Andrew at its Labs to Riches event, a celebration which marked the start of the Royal Society’s Year of Science and Industry. Professor Tim Leighton & Dr Peter Birkin, co-inventors of the StarStream technology, were invited to demonstrate their device to HRH Prince Andrew.
Last year, StarStream won the 2012 Institute of Chemical Engineering Award for "Water Management and Supply” against stiff competition from major companies including GlaxoSmithKline and Scottish Water as well as winning the Royal Society Brian Mercer Award for Innovation in 2011.
Dr Birkin adds: "We very much look forward to working with Ultrawave and other companies in what will undoubtedly be an exciting year for this invention.”
