can effectively clean parts rapidly and completely if they are correctly configured for the specific cleaning application.
An ultrasonic cleaning system typically consists of a signal generator, a transducer, and a cleaning tank. Each component of an ultrasonic cleaning system should be carefully selected, and they must work together so that the entire system can clean parts and tools effectively.
Cleaning application – Ultrasonic cleaners usually remove light contamination like dust, films, and residues quickly and effectively. For cleaning parts that have heavy contamination (such as grease), the application of heat or mild solvents may be added.
Size and power – Effective cleaning also depends on the size of the parts to be cleaned, as well as the power selection. For bigger parts or parts that have unusual shapes, a custom-made tank may be appropriate. Naturally, bigger tanks will require more power than tanks of a standard size. However, too much power can cause pitting on the surfaces of the parts being cleaned, that's why selecting the right amount of power is as important as selecting the right tank size. The bottom line is that the ultrasonic waves need to be evenly distributed in the cleaning tank so that it can clean parts thoroughly and effectively.
Since is carried out by the high-frequency sound waves in the cleaning solution, the cleaning tank (and the parts inside it) may vibrate slightly as cleaning takes place. This means that the parts should be suspended in the cleaning solution to avoid contact with the walls and the bottom of the cleaning tank, as even slight vibrations can cause damage.
