Know More about Ultrasonic Cleaning

 A machine only gives an optimized performance when all the parts are properly cleaned and oiled.  And that is why all machines require proper cleaning every now and then. If you want to invest in a cleansing technology that can remove contamination from all kind surfaces within a matter of seconds, Ultrasonic cleaner is the right choice for you. These amazing products have applications in all sectors including industrial, commercial and medical. The patented technology has emerged as a choicest one for engineers as it uses ultrasound to remove contamination from hard surfaces like metal, ceramics and plastics.

We all know such kinds of tools and equipment may be really difficult to clean with ordinary procedures. You may be curious to know the secret of the technology. Well, as the name suggests, this modern and unique technological method of cleaning hard surfaces use ultrasonic waves generated by a piezoelectric transducer. Several transducers are connected to the cleaning tank. The ultrasonic waves that are generated pulsate the fluid in the tank at a quite high speed. The cleaning fluid may be plain water or a specially formulated cleaning solution. A process known as ‘cavitation’ gets induced and this causes a huge amount of little bubbles to break down within the solutions and penetrate each and every cavity of the equipment to be cleaned. Thus, the dirt and muck get cleaned within a matter of seconds.

There are various types of ultrasonic cleaners that are available in the market. All of them, though, work on the same principle but can be used according to the various industrial needs and size of instruments and parts that require the cleaning.

  • Table Top Cleaners: These are small cleaners that can be placed on worktops, benches and tables. With a simple design and single tank that can hold up to 8 gallons of fluid, these table top cleaners are perfect for tiny parts including medical instruments, small mechanical gears, optical items and several other pieces.
  • Bench Top Cleaners: With mobility as the best feature of benchtop cleaners, they can be customised on the basis of lower and higher frequencies. They can be as large as 20 gallons or can be customised according to the needs. The most amazing thing about these cleaners is that they can be operated in extreme conditions like forest or disaster sites.
  • Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaners: Now these industrial Hilsonic ultrasonic cleaners are manufactured specifically where lower frequency cleaning is required. Huge machinery parts including automobile parts and marine machinery are cleaned with industrial ultrasonic cleaners. They have a capacity to hold fluid of 1,000 and more gallons. Sometimes, they are various inbuilt stages in the cleaners for rinsing and drying purposes, which are usually automated.

In case, you have specialised cleaning requirements, the machines can be manufactured in non-standard sizes. You can discuss your specific requirements with a consultation meeting with the manufacturers.  This way, you can have a unique product designed with specifications, chemicals and frequency that will suit your requirements.
