Unlike the other cleaning processes we’ve discussed, ultrasonic cleaning is a non-abrasive, chemical cleaning option.
If you missed the blog posts about abrasive cleaning options, check out how abrasive blast finishing, shot blasting and vibratory finishing create clean, long-lasting parts.
Why Use Ultrasonic Cleaning
The use of an ultrasonic cleaner removes the smallest particles of dirt and leaves parts exceptionally clean, exceeding many industries’ toughest cleanliness specifications. In addition to the mechanical scrubbing action of the ultrasonic cleaner, cavitation also increases the speed and intensity of many chemical reactions, causing the cleaning chemistry to be more rapid and effective.
KVF Quad’s ultrasonic cleaners are well maintained and kept at the highest standards. We utilize eco-friendly components and can assist you with meeting specific certification if necessary.
When is Ultrasonic Cleaning the Best Option
Cleanliness of certain parts is critical, especially when the parts are used in sensitive systems such as hydraulic pumps, transmissions, engines, or other internally fluid usage systems. Contaminants left after machining processes can be detrimental to the longevity of these systems. Ultrasonic cleaning is designed to combat these issues and provide the customer with a part which is ready for assembly.
