What Is Ultrasonics? An overview

What is ultrasonics, anyway, and how does it work? Ultrasonic cleaning uses ultrasound to agitate a fluid. The high frequency sound waves create cavitation bubbles, which cause the agitation, which removes contaminants from a number of materials (such as metal, plastics, glass, and rubber).

Parts cleaning by hand is very time consuming, tedious, and ineffective. Ultrasonic cleaning allows a more thorough cleaning, as the entire part is totally submerged and the ultrasonic agitation can work through the entire part – holes, cracks, crevices, and all. Cleaning can be done with water and eco-friendly specialty soaps, eliminating the use of hazardous chemicals. 

The process is very fast and efficient. A cycle typically lasts about 1-5 minutes, depending on the object. The part being cleaned, in many cases, doesn’t even require disassembly. This entire process saves you labor, increases productivity, and is safe for the environment.
