The Ultrasonic Cleaning Nuts & Bolts

The Ultrasonic Cleaning Nuts & Bolts

Ultrasonic cleaning implies producing ultrasonic vibrations to remove contamination on hard surfaces. The application of ultrasound causes the high speed cleaning process and increases the quality. In many cases, the method provides an opportunity to replace flammable and toxic solvents with safer cleaners, providing the quality of comparable level. The process requires using high quality ultrasonic cleaner equipment, represented on the market in a variety of solid brands, such as Hilsonic. The company concentrates its effort on innovative ultrasound developments, boasting a good number of patents acquired and truly cost-effective pricing program (fact: the company claims its average customer is saving up to 18% on operational expenses within the first 24 months of using the equipment).

How it works?

Ultrasonic cleaning is used in many industries for the repair and production of machinery and jewelery, it is used in restoration business, in medicine, as well as in the production of printed circuit boards for washing the surface with solder paste residues, organic matter, contamination, solder and flux.

Ultrasonic vibrations cause the emergence of liquid standing waves due to the combined action of various nonlinear effects arising in the liquid under the action of high-power ultrasonic vibration is cleaned. These effects: cavitation, acoustic streaming, sound pressure, acoustic-capillary effect of cavitation play a crucial role. Cavitation bubbles collapsing in vicinity of polluted areas destroy the contamination build-ups. This effect is known as cavitation erosion. (more…)
