Ultrasonic Cleaning is a method that uses ultrasonic sound waves coupled with a suitable cleaning solution to clean items. These ultrasonic waves vary between 28Khz - 40Khz.
Ultrasonic cleaners work through a process known as “Cavitation”. This is where an electrical generator unit within the tank will emit a high frequency signal and the transducer(s) attached to the tank produce compression waves in the liquid. During cavitation the liquid is torn apart forming vacuum cavities or bubbles. As each cavity collapses it produces pressures of 20,000 lbs/square inch at a temperature of 5,000 degrees – but on a microscopic scale. The bubbles then proceed to blast dirt and particles from every inch of the item(s) submerged in the tank.
To maximize Ultrasonic Cleaning items are submerged in the cleaning liquid. The millions of microscopic bubbles, created by the Ultrasonic Cleaner, are able to reach all areas of the item and provide extremely thorough cleaning as seen below!
For cleaning engine parts, carburetors or jewellery we would recommend one of our specific cleaning solutions. You can see our full range below:
There is an endless list of items that can be cleaning with Ultrasonic technology. As long as they are waterproof or can be submerged in water, almost anything can be cleaned. This includes:
