Selecting the Best Frequency for Ultrasonic Cleaning Applications

January 21, 2020

Effective cleaning of parts with industrial ultrasonic cleaners depends on matching the system frequency to the parts to be cleaned and to the material to be removed. Low frequencies deliver high-energy cleaning for robust parts with hard surfaces and for heavy contamination. Cleaning with mid-range frequencies is for more fragile components but the systems can […]

Is De-Ionized Water Needed for Ultrasonic Cleaning?

January 7, 2020

The use of de-ionized water can improve the cleaning performance of many applications using ultrasonic cleaning systems and for rinsing cleaned components. For lightly contaminated parts or for parts that can withstand the robust cleaning of low ultrasonic frequencies, cleaning with ordinary water is often enough. For parts that are more heavily contaminated or for […]

How Ultrasonic Cleaners Protect Components from Rust

December 20, 2019

Metal components can suffer from rust and corrosion unless they are specially protected. Even stainless steel can deteriorate if the outer layer of chromium oxide is disrupted. Metal finishing processes such as passivation help prevent corrosion by increasing the thickness of the protective oxide layer and making sure it is continuous. In order for metal […]

Using Ultrasonic Cleaning to Manufacture Solar Panels

December 9, 2019

Solar Panels are made from silicon wafers which have gone through an etching and cleaning process and then mounted behind glass sheets. Several of the intermediate steps require cleaning of the silicon wafers and glass sheets. Ultrasonic cleaning systems effectively remove contaminants and residues quickly and completely while leaving the underlying silicon wafers or glass […]

When Are High Frequency Ultrasonic Cleaners Needed?

November 20, 2019

High frequency ultrasonic cleaners are needed when the parts to be cleaned are delicate and easily damaged. Ultrasonic cleaning systems use the scrubbing action of microscopic cavitation bubbles to clean dirt and contaminants from the surfaces of parts. Low frequency systems generate large bubbles that deliver robust cleaning while high frequencies produce smaller bubbles and […]

How Ultrasonic Parts Cleaners Keep Employees Safe

November 5, 2019

Contrary to traditional cleaning methods that require extensive handling of parts, scrubbing them and soaking them in harsh chemicals, ultrasonic cleaning lets workers place the parts in a water-based solution and leave them there for a short period until they are clean. With ultrasonic parts cleaners, employees are safe from accidents involving sharp part edges […]

Why Ultrasonic Cleaners Are Used in the Medical Industry

October 23, 2019

Because medical devices are often delicate but have to be cleaned to a high standard, ultrasonic cleaners are an ideal solution, offering gentle cleaning and complete removal of contaminants. Many medical devices can’t be exposed to the heat, chemicals and mechanical scrubbing used in traditional cleaning methods. This means that either costly disposable devices and […]

Selecting the Right Ultrasonic Tank and Transducer for Your Application

October 10, 2019

Ultrasonic cleaning systems are made up of an ultrasonic generator to produce the electric ultrasonic frequency, a transducer to convert the electric signal to sound waves and a tank to hold the cleaning solution. The choice of the transducer and cleaning tank influences how the ultrasonic cleaning system can be used and what parts can […]

How Ultrasonic Cleaning Systems Eliminate Manufacturing Production Delays

September 24, 2019

Incomplete cleaning of tools and parts used in manufacturing production lines can lead to down times and slow operation. When parts such as injection molds are not cleaned completely, products may be defective, and the molds might be damaged. Finding and solving such cleaning problems reduces manufacturing line productivity and results in production delays. The […]

What Are the Advantages of Turn-Key Ultrasonic Cleaning Systems?

September 10, 2019

The three major components of an ultrasonic cleaning system are the ultrasonic generator, the transducers and the cleaning tank. Customers can buy these components separately but they have to make sure the various characteristics and specifications match. If the frequencies, power, tank size and other variables are not chosen correctly, the performance of the system […]
