When the machine is turned on, cavitation bubbles are created in the liquid because of high-frequency waves generated by the machine. The agitation caused by the high-frequency sound waves removes contamination from solid surfaces. This means that any submerged object present during this process is thoroughly cleaned. The liquid seeps into every crack and crevice of the object, cleaning it much more thoroughly than many other industrial parts cleaning methods.
Ultrasonic cleaners can be used for a wide variety of items as long as they are hard and non-absorbent. Most metals and plastics and even glass can be safely cleaned in an ultrasonic machine. Although ultrasonic cleaning is very thorough, an object is not considered to be sterilized after it has been through this process because spores and viruses can remain after cleaning.
In medical applications, sterilization is performed after ultrasonic cleaning. Industrial ultrasonic cleaning machines are used in a variety of industries, including automotive, marine, sporting, pharmaceutical, technology, engineering, and weapons. Components can be efficiently cleaned and maintained using an ultrasonic cleaner, so many businesses benefit from using one on a regular basis.
The benefits of ultrasonic cleaning include less chemical use and a more efficient cleaning process. Because of the energy generated by the high-frequency waves and the powerful cleaning capabilities of the cavitation bubbles created by the machine, fewer chemicals are required to make the process as effective. The ultrasonic process acts as a powerful enhancer to the cleaning solvent, making it a more sustainable solution.
In terms of efficiency, ultrasonic cleaning machines are known to be up to three times faster than other cleaning methods. This means more can be accomplished in less time! Many companies manufacture and sell ultrasonic cleaners for industrial or personal use. These come in a wide variety of sizes, and they are either sold directly to an industrial client or shipped to a retail store where they are then resold to individual customers.
