Ultrasonic Baths

Ultrasonic cleaning gives a high standard of cleanliness in a fraction of the time required by conventional cleaning methods. It is also safer than manual cleaning if there is any danger of contamination or infection. Ultrasonic action is also used to de-gas liquids before use in chromatography, to prevent cavitation in high pressure pumps, and to modify reactions in sonochemistry, such as inducing rapid crystallisation of materials.

 

What is Ultrasonic Cleaning?

Ultrasonic cleaning is the use of an aqueous medium aided by ultrasound to remove soluble and insoluble foreign particles through dissolution and displacement.

  • Ultrasound is sound transmitted at frequencies beyond the range of human hearing
  • Ultrasonic energy is generated by a piezoelectric transducer which is powered by a generator
  • The typical ultrasonic equipment generates sound energy at a rate of 40,000 times per second to create cavitation
  • Cavitation creates the scrubbing action necessary for ultrasonic cleaning

 

How does it work?

Ultrasonic cleaning is powered by ultrasonic wave energy. When an ultrasonic wave is projected in liquid, negative pressure is created and causes the liquid to fracture, a process known as Cavitation. Cavitation creates bubbles that oscillate in the projected ultrasonic waves. As the ultrasonic waves continue, these bubbles grow larger and become very unstable, eventually collapsing in a violent implosion. The implosions radiate high-powered shock waves that dissipate repeatedly at a rate of 25,000 ~ 30,000 times per second. Additionally, the implosion of Cavitation Bubbles creates temperatures that exceed 10,000 F and pressures that exceed 10,000 PSI. Ultrasonic cleaning uses this Cavitation Implosion effect to clean.

Cavitations: The working mechanism of Ultrasonic Cleaning

Cavitation is the formation and collapse of countless millions of tiny cavities or vacuum bubbles in the liquid. The transducer's movement produces alternating high and low pressure waves within the liquid in the tank. The liquid is compressed during the high pressure phase of the wave cycle, and pulled apart during the low pressure phase. As the pressure in the liquid is reduced during the low pressure phase, cavities grow from a microscopic seed to a maximum critical diameter. During the subsequent high pressure phase they compress and implode. The energy is very powerful but safe for parts because it is localized at microscopic scale.

 

Why Use An Ultrasonic Cleaner?

Because most surfaces are not flat but instead comprised of hills, valleys, and unreachable areas, it is difficult for conventional displacement methods to work effectively in displacing contaminants. The Ultrasonic Cavitation Implosion Effect is uninhibited by the composition of any surface. That is why Ultrasonic Cleaning has been proven to be more effective than pressure spray washing, air agitation, brushing, turbulation, and electro-cleaning in many applications.
