Ultrasonic Wine Barrel Cleaner
One of the more specalised Australian hi-tech exports is the "Cavitus Wine Barrel Cleaner". This uses sounds waves to remove deposits from used wine barrels and kill microorganisms in the wood. They also produce an "Ultrasonic Defoaming System" to allow beer cans to be filled more quickly by suppressing the head. R&D for this is carried out at University of South Australia.
