Ultrasonic Cleaning involves the use of high-frequency sound waves (above the upper range of human hearing, or about 18 kHz) to remove a variety of contaminants from parts immersed in water with a cleaning solution added. The contaminants can be dirt, oil, grease, buffing/polishing compounds, and mold release agents, just to name a few. Materials that can be cleaned include metals, glass, ceramics, along with various other substrates. It is the preferred method used in cleaning brass musical instruments.
Typical applications found in the metals industry are removing chips and cutting oils from cutting and machining operations, removing buffing and polishing compounds prior to plating operations, and cleaning greases and sludge from rebuilt components for automotive and aircraft applications.
Ultrasonic cleaning is powerful enough to remove tough contaminants, yet gentle enough not to damage the substrate. It provides excellent penetration and cleaning in the smallest crevices and between tightly spaced parts in a cleaning tank.
The use of ultrasonics in cleaning has become increasingly popular due to the restrictions on the use of chlorofluorocarbons. Due to these restrictions, many manufacturers are now using ultrasonic cleaning technologies rather than solvent-based vapor degreasing. The use of ultrasonics enables the cleaning of complexly shaped parts with an effectiveness that competes with and surpasses that of solvent-based vapor degreasing.
Uses for Ultrasonic Cleaning are:
