What is Ultrasonic Cleaning?
Ultrasonic cleaning is an innovative process that uses ultrasound to agitate a fluid. The high frequency sound waves create cavitation bubbles which cause the agitation. This agitation creates forces that loosen and remove dirt and other contaminants from a number of materials (such as metal, plastics, glass, and rubber.)
This process is so effective in part because it penetrates holes, cracks and crevices both seen and unseen. Parts cleaning by hand is very time consuming, tedious, and ineffective. This process allows a more thorough cleaning as the entire part is totally submerged and the ultrasonic agitation can work through the entire part, crevices and all. Cleaning can be done with only water, or a solvent can be added for certain materials or contaminants to increase effectiveness.
The process is very fast and efficient. A cycle typically lasts about 3-6 minutes, but depending on the object to be cleaned can exceed 20 minutes. The part being cleaned, in many cases doesn’t even require disassembly! This entire process can save you loads of time and effort, and is even eco-friendly!
