Why Kaijo’s WRS is Needed in Some Ultrasonic Cleaning Applications

August 18, 2022

When ultrasonic cleaning is difficult due to stubborn contaminants or because the parts to be cleaned are made up of several different materials, an even distribution of cavitation bubbles can help. Optimized bubble formation and distribution can substantially increase cleaning intensity without creating more energetic bubbles that might damage part surfaces. Kaijo has developed the […]

Tips to Determine Which Parts to Clean with an Ultrasonic Cleaner

August 4, 2022

When traditional cleaning methods such as soaking in chemicals, hand scrubbing and manual scraping don’t deliver the desired results, ultrasonic technology offers an alternative. The key question becomes, which parts are best cleaned with an ultrasonic cleaner. The cleaner has to be selected with the right characteristics, but beyond that, ultrasonic cleaning is more effective […]

Advanced Ultrasonic Cleaning Through Waveform Optimization

July 19, 2022

While choosing the correct frequency for an ultrasonic cleaning application remains important, some parts can be difficult to clean well. Parts may be made of different materials, have complex shapes, or the contaminants may adhere strongly to the part surfaces. Some parts have large, heavy masses with thin, fragile arms while others have microscopic structures […]

Considerations When Using Ultrasonic Systems to Clean Titanium

May 10, 2022

The use of parts made from titanium metal or titanium alloys is common in industrial sectors where strength and low weight are important. In addition to being hard and light, titanium is resistant to many solvents and chemicals that could damage other metals. This combination of characteristics means that titanium parts are ideal candidates for […]

Considerations When Using Ultrasonic Systems to Clean Aluminum

April 7, 2022

Since most metal parts have hard surfaces, they can be cleaned using low ultrasonic frequencies that deliver powerful cleaning action. When faster cleaning is required, the cleaning solution can be heated and mild solvents can be added to speed up the cleaning process. The surfaces of parts made from aluminum are softer and need gentler […]

How Ultrasonics Are Used to Clean Stainless-Steel Medical Devices

March 23, 2022

Because stainless steel is strong, smooth, and impervious to corrosion or organic contaminants, it is used in many medical devices. Such devices still have to be cleaned before use because of possible surface contamination. Ultrasonics can clean stainless steel medical devices quickly and completely, but choosing the right medical ultrasonic cleaner for the specific cleaning […]

Considerations When Using Ultrasonics to Clean Ceramics

March 10, 2022

While the term “ceramics” applies to a wide variety of materials, they all have some common characteristics that allow ceramic parts to be cleaned effectively with ultrasonics. Items made from ceramics range from common brown flower pots through precision medical equipment to high-temperature parts. Many industrial ceramic parts have specific contaminants, with custom ultrasonic cleaners […]

Special Considerations When Cleaning Auto Parts with Ultrasonics

February 22, 2022

When automotive parts are made from different materials and have several surface contaminants that have to be removed, cleaning with traditional methods can be difficult and time-consuming. Specialized automotive ultrasonic cleaners can be designed to deliver excellent cleaning in a shorter time. To remove specific contaminants, ultrasonic cleaners can work with mild detergents and solvents […]

Considerations When Using Ultrasonics to Clean Stainless Steel

February 8, 2022

Because the lowest ultrasonic frequencies deliver powerful cleaning action, they can only be used for parts that have hard surfaces and that are not easily damaged. Parts made from stainless steel are usually robust and the stainless-steel surface is extremely hard. Low ultrasonic frequencies perform well with these parts, but cleaning performance is also influenced […]
