Selecting an Ultrasonic Transducer for Different Cleaning Applications

July 17, 2018

Ultrasonic cleaning systems are composed of a signal generator, an ultrasonic transducer and a cleaning tank. The transducer changes the electrical high-frequency signal from the generator into ultrasonic sound waves in the cleaning solution. Due to this key role, it is important to choose a transducer that will work well with the generator and cleaning tank […]

Ultrasonic Generators Provide Optimum Cleaning Results

June 27, 2018

Ultrasonic generators produce the high-frequency electric signal that is required for an ultrasonic cleaning system to operate effectively. The devices are powered by normal 60 KHz electric circuits and use electronics to generate ultrasonic frequencies between about 20 kHz and 1 MHz. Piezoelectric or magnetorestrictive transducers convert the electric signal to ultrasonic waves in the […]

Using Ultrasonic Cleaning Systems for Cleaning Industrial Lenses

May 29, 2018

Ultrasonic cleaning systems can clean hard surfaces such as glass lenses quickly and effectively, but if there are any special characteristics of the lenses, choosing the correct ultrasonic frequency, power and bath can be important. Low frequencies may wear away or pit surfaces and hot baths or baths with detergents may dissolve or etch even […]

Time Needed for Ultrasonic Cleaners to Clean Parts

May 16, 2018

How long an ultrasonic cleaning system takes depends on the system, the part to be cleaned and the contaminants. For light cleaning action of a part with hard surfaces, a few minutes may be enough. Average cleaning times for common ultrasonic cleaning tasks may range from ten to twenty minutes. For cleaning substantial deposits of […]

Defining Ultrasonic and Megasonic Frequencies

April 27, 2018

Sound energy propagates not in vacuum the way radio-frequency energy does, but within physical mediums. When matter is subjected to sound energy, it is stimulated in a way that forms a rippling propagation — like waves in a body of water. You would also be able to see sound energy pass through a visible medium […]

Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaners for Aerospace Safety

April 17, 2018

Aerospace parts for rockets and aircraft require periodic cleaning to maintain their functionality. Cleaning has to be thorough and complete to ensure parts don’t fail during operation or compromise the safety of passengers and crew. Removal of deposits and contaminants using traditional cleaning methods can stress the aerospace parts and reduce their lifetime or affect […]

How Ultrasonic Cleaners are Used in Disaster Restoration

March 29, 2018

Items recovered from disasters such as floods, fires or hurricanes are often covered in dirt or contaminated with soot and mold. Cleaning such items with traditional methods involves soaking them in chemicals to loosen dirt and brushing or wiping the items clean. Chemicals may be harsh, attack the surface of the items and leave residues. […]

How Ultrasonic Waves Are Produced for Industrial Cleaning Applications

March 16, 2018

Industrial ultrasonic cleaners deliver more effective and efficient cleaning performance without the use of harsh chemicals typically used in traditional cleaning methods. A variety of parts, from robust metal and ceramic components to delicate semiconductors can be cleaned quickly and completely via the cavitation bubbles from ultrasonic waves generated from an ultrasonic system. Parts of […]

Using Ultrasonic Cleaners for Medical Devices

February 27, 2018

Ultrasonic cleaning systems are often a part of processes used in the manufacture of medical instruments, devices and implants. The method is employed in the everyday use of medical equipment, as well. One reason ultrasonic cleaning is often required is that medical equipment often includes delicate, high-precision designs which contain complex surface geometries. Conventional cleaning […]
