How Megasonic Cleaners Improve Semiconductor Processing

August 21, 2019

Semiconductor manufacturing involves a large number of process steps that etch silicon wafers and deposit thin films. Between the steps, the silicon wafers have to be cleaned to remove traces of chemicals and particles in preparation for the subsequent step. Cleaning is usually done with powerful chemicals such as acids and peroxides that remove undesirable […]

How Ultrasonic Transducers Work and Are Used in Industrial Cleaning Applications

July 8, 2019

In industrial ultrasonic cleaning systems, a generator produces the electric high-frequency signal and a transducer converts the signal into physical sound waves in the cleaning solution. Depending on the application, ultrasonic cleaning transducers can handle different frequencies and deliver enough power to fill the cleaning tank with ultrasonic waves. For existing tanks, moveable immersible transducers […]

Why Are Higher Ultrasonic Cleaning Frequencies Required?

May 10, 2019

Ultrasonic cleaners quickly remove contamination from part surfaces but using the right frequency is important. If the ultrasonic frequency of the cleaning system is too high, cleaning could be less effective and take longer. If it is too low, delicate parts could be damaged. Ultrasonic cleaning systems are extremely versatile and can excel at most […]

Kaijo’s New Phenix+ Ultrasonic Generator Optimizes Cleaning Performance

April 29, 2019

Ultrasonic generators produce the high-frequency electrical signal that powers the ultrasonic transducers immersed in the cleaning solution. The transducers are passive in the sense that they merely convert the electrical signal into sound waves. The generator handles all the control functions and is responsible for determining the frequencies used, the power output and the frequency […]
