Why Medical Manufacturers are Using Ultrasonic Cleaners

August 6, 2021

Because new technologies have made medical devices harder to clean, medical manufacturers have to explore better ways to clean and sterilize medical equipment. High-pressure steam cleaning and autoclave sterilizing can’t be used for devices that include electronics or other heat-sensitive components. Manual scrubbing traditionally used to remove heavy contamination can scratch fragile optical parts and […]

Guidelines for Using Ultrasonic Cleaners to Clean Surgical Instruments

June 22, 2021

When surgical tools and instruments are difficult to clean and sterilize with traditional methods, ultrasonic cleaners can deliver excellent cleaning and sterilizing performance. Some instruments, such as laparoscopes used in minimally invasive surgery, may have heat-sensitive components and can’t be sterilized in an autoclave. Instruments may have complex shapes with areas impossible to reach with […]

Using Ultrasonic Cleaners to Provide an Effective Sterilization Process

June 8, 2021

Medical instruments, devices, and equipment designed for repeated use have to be cleaned and sterilized after each patient. Traditional cleaning has consisted of manual scrubbing and wiping together with steam cleaning. Sterilization then takes place at high temperatures in an autoclave. Modern medical equipment often includes electronics and other heat-sensitive components. Instruments may have interior […]

Why Ultrasonic Cleaners Are Essential to Medical Manufacturers

May 19, 2021

Because some modern medical equipment incorporates sensitive components such as electronics, sensors and optical fiber, traditional cleaning and sterilizing methods often can’t be used. Heavy contamination is removed with manual scrubbing and devices such as autoclaves use high-temperature steam to sterilize medical equipment. Sensors and delicate objects such as optical devices are easily scratched when […]

Incorporating Megasonic Cleaners into Large Processing Systems

May 5, 2021

As production part cleaning requirements become more stringent, environmental regulations are restricting the use of the aggressive chemicals commonly used in large processing systems. Manufacturing lines often incorporate cleaning steps to prepare parts for subsequent processing. Cleaning may include manual scrubbing, pressure washing and soaking in hot chemical baths. Modern products often include heat-sensitive components, […]

How Ultrasonic Cleaners Are Used for Engine Block Cleaning

April 20, 2021

Because cleaning engine blocks with traditional methods is time-consuming and difficult, the use of ultrasonic cleaners is attractive. Ultrasonic technology removes heavy surface dirt completely, and quickly cleans down to the original surface. Ultrasonic cleaners don’t rely on harsh chemicals or lengthy soaking. Instead, they clean safely and without monitoring. Powerful automotive ultrasonic cleaners can clean even […]

Ultrasonics Clean Semiconductor Components for Heart Pacemakers

April 6, 2021

Implants used in medical procedures are subject to extremely high standards of cleanliness and sterilization. Traditional cleaning methods including cleaning by hand, using parts washers and steam sterilization are often not effective for implants that include new technology. Semiconductor components are often fragile and heat-sensitive. They could be damaged from chemical cleaning methods or excess […]

Can an Ultrasonic Cleaner Effectively Clean Aluminum Engine Parts?

March 23, 2021

Because aluminum is a highly reactive metal with comparatively soft surfaces, cleaning with an ultrasonic system has to be carefully adapted to the parts to be cleaned and their contaminants. For automotive parts made from hard metals such as steel or cast iron, low-frequency ultrasonic cleaners operating at 19.5 kHz or 26 kHz can deliver […]
