Ultrasonic Cleaning

The term “ultrasonic” refers to high frequency electrical sound. In parts cleaning application, ultrasonic high frequency vibrations generate sound waves in a cleaning solution in the same manner a vibrating drumhead generates sound waves in the air.

During the process of an ultrasonic clean, sound waves radiate throughout the tank liquid, an alternating high and low pressure cycle is created.  Throughout each low pressure cycle millions of microscopic vapor filled cavities form and grow in the liquid.  It is during each high-pressure cycle the cavities collapse or “implode”, releasing enormous amounts of energy.  This continuous rapid process is called “cavitation”.  The implosions act like an army of tiny scrub brushes that work in all directions and invade the tiniest recesses and openings.

In addition to the mechanical scrubbing action of the ultrasonic cleaner, cavitation also increases the speed and intensity of many chemical reactions; thus, causing the cleaning chemistry to be more rapid and effective. The use of an ultrasonic cleaner can remove the smallest particles of dirt and leave your part exceptionally clean and exceed many of the industries toughest cleanliness specifications.
