Title: Ultrasonic solution separating method and ultrasonic separating apparatus used in such method

Abstract: An ultrasonic solution separating method and apparatus separates a solution by ultrasonically vibrating the solution by using an ultrasonic vibrator to atomize the solution into mists, and such atomized mists are condensed and collected for separation from the solution. In the present method and apparatus, a tube 6, defining a spray opening 12 at an upper end of the tube, is filled with the solution; an ultrasonic vibration is applied to the solution inside the tube 6, toward the spray opening 12; the atomized mists are dispersed from the spray opening 12; and a carrier gas is supplied to the mists dispersed from the spray opening 12 so that the mists are atomized in the carrier gas.
