Ultrasonics is the term used for vibrations that are inaudible by the human ear. This is commonly used in cleaning applications and for cleaning components with a complicated geometry where standard cleaning principles or manual cleaning methods can sometimes fail. Transducers in the tank transmit high and low pressure waves into the liquid and when a certain level of vibration is reached the compound structure of the liquid tears apart and microscopic vacuum bubbles are created. These bubbles then violently implode close to the surface of component being cleaned thereby directing a pressure jet towards surface of the component. This process is called cavitation. It gently and effectively removes dirt particles from all areas that are completely immersed, even from the smallest grooves and holes. The use of Ultrasonics can reduce the cleaning time by up to 90%.
Ultrasonics is excellent for all precision cleaning tasks, especially for companies within the aerospace industry, precision optics, electronics and semiconductor production, the medical field, manufacturing of precision components, the automotive industry and nuclear energy sector.
