How Custom-Designed Ultrasonic Cleaners Meet Medical Industry Needs

December 6, 2022

While medical devices must be cleaned to high standards, many conventional cleaning methods can’t be used in a medical environment. Cleaning with aggressive chemicals is unacceptable, and high-power cleaning methods such as pressure washing are likewise unsuitable. New cleaning methods are needed for sophisticated modern devices that incorporate sensors, screens, probes, and optical fibers. In […]

Considerations When Using Ultrasonics to Clean Plastics

November 7, 2022

Whether using ultrasonics is the best choice for cleaning plastic parts depends on the type of plastic and the nature of the contamination. Hard, dense plastics are easy to clean with ultrasonic cleaners, but choosing the right frequency and configuration is still important. Parts made from soft or light plastics need special measures for ultrasonic […]

How to Safely Clean Aluminum Parts with Ultrasonics

October 6, 2022

While low ultrasonic frequencies are commonly used to clean metal surfaces, they can’t be used with aluminum parts. Aluminum is a relatively soft metal, and using low ultrasonic frequencies can result in surface pitting and damage to aluminum parts. Although using higher frequencies may mean the cleaning process is slower, additional measures can help speed […]

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 […]

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 […]
