This agitation allows objects that are submerged in the liquid to be thoroughly cleaned in a matter of minutes.
This unique and highly advanced cleaning process is used in many industries, including automotive, medical, jewelry, sporting goods, and more. Ultrasonic cleaning machines can be manufactured to be large enough to hold sizeable components like car parts or small enough to clean a wedding ring.
For some applications, particularly in industrial settings, a custom ultrasonic cleaner will be necessary. Some companies require customized units that can be made to clean very large components or machines that match a set of exact size specifications due to space limitations in a factory.
Some manufacturers work with clients to help create a custom ultrasonic machine that meets their particular needs. Engineers will consult with the client and determine what parameters need to be put on the project in order to make the final product work efficiently with the client’s existing systems. They will develop a model first, and then move on to building a prototype. If the client needs many of these units, they will optimize the production process to keep costs down.
Most manufacturers will not produce a custom ultrasonic cleaning machine for a client unless the client orders multiple units at the same time. The cost of engineering and producing just one unit is often much too high to make it reasonable. Exceptions are sometimes made when the machine can be assembled using modified parts and components from products that the manufacturer already offers.
Large ultrasonic cleaning machines can be made with multiple chambers, so in one machine there can be separate areas for cleaning various components. Some applications may require the machine to have more safety and control features due to industry regulations, so a manufacturer can add these features to ensure that industry standards are met. These regulatory demands are most common in the medical and pharmaceutical industries, where strict procedures for cleaning objects and operating any machinery are absolutely necessary to maintain protocol.
