Streamlining Manufacturing Operations Using Ultrasonic Cleaning Systems

November 14, 2023

When cleaning is a part of the manufacturing process, efficient cleaning can streamline operations. Traditional cleaning methods, such as soaking in chemicals, manual scrubbing, and pressure washing, are expensive, time-consuming, and often give inconsistent results. Ultrasonic cleaning works with plain water and cleans completely every time. The technology relies on a mechanical process that acts […]

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 […]

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 […]

I Tried Using Ultrasonics and It Didn’t Work, What Happened?

September 21, 2021

When ultrasonic cleaning doesn’t deliver the expected rapid and complete cleaning performance, it’s usually because the cleaning system is not configured to match the cleaning task. Characteristics such as frequency and power have to be specified correctly for the system to work properly. If the ultrasonic cleaner does not match the cleaning application, cleaning can […]

Does Ultrasonic Cleaning Work with Plastics?

August 18, 2021

While ultrasonic cleaning works best on parts with hard surfaces, such as those made of metal, many parts with softer surfaces can still be cleaned ultrasonically as well. Most plastic parts have comparatively soft surfaces and many have other characteristics that make them less suitable for ultrasonic cleaning. Parts made of light, soft plastic with […]

Why is an Ultrasonic Cleaner Essential Equipment at a Medical Facility?

February 9, 2021

Because the advanced technology used in many modern medical instruments is heat-sensitive, these medical devices can’t be cleaned with high-pressure steam and sterilized in an autoclave. Parts such as electronics and optical fibers can be damaged when subjected to high temperatures, but manual cleaning at room temperature is not an ideal solution. Cleaning with brushes […]
