How does an ultra sonic cleaner work?

Ultrasonic cleaning works through high-frequency sound waves transmitted through liquid to scrub clean the surface of immersed parts. The high-frequency sound waves, typically 40 kHz, agitate the liquid solution of water or solvent.

Ultrasonic energy causes the rapid formation and collapse of small bubbles in the liquid; known as cavitation. A huge burst of energy creates bubbles that quickly increase in size until they burst against the surface of the item

What can I ultrasonically clean?

Ultrasonic cleaning is suitable for cleaning a wide variety of materials. It is especially useful for removing tightly-adhered contaminants from intricate items with blind holes, cracks and recesses. Examples of contaminants removed through ultrasonic cleaning include dust, dirt, oil, grease, pigments, flux agents, fingerprints and polishing compound.

Benefits of ultrasonic cleaning:

ultrasonic cleaning saves time and money
up to multiple parts can be cleaned at one time (size dependant)
life of parts is extended due to gentle cleaning
highly effective cleaning means all contaminants are removed in first round

Common Applications:

  • Gears
  • Small Steel Parts
  • Pump Parts
  • Injector Bodies (Common rail)
  • Injectors (Pre-Common Rail)
