Ultrasonic Cleaning Machines

Ultrasonic cleaning machines are much more effective than any manual or mechanical method of cleaning. Cleaning occurs when high frequency sound waves are passed through a cleaning solution, creating cavitation, or the implosion of microscopic bubbles. This creates a vacuum effect that pulls contaminants off the surfaces being cleaned.

Ultrasonic cleaning machines thoroughly clean the surfaces of parts being cleaned, as well as any crevices or recesses. The cleaning solution reaches everywhere, leaving no possibility for hidden pollutants to be left behind. The cleaning solutions used in ultrasonic cleaning machines increase the cavitation action, making the process even more efficient.

How Ultrasonic Cleaning Machines Work

The waves are created by means of a transducer, which converts electricity into the ultrasonic waves. They are then transferred to the cleaning solution, creating the cavitation, and cleaning the objects in the tank. Ultrasonic cleaners are used in many industries on a wide variety of surfaces.

Tabletop ultrasonic cleaners are available in a range of sizes, from a half-liter to 21 liters. There are also huge units with much larger capacities. These are used to clean machine parts and other large equipment.
