Ultrasonic cleaning is the rapid and complete removal of contaminants from objects by immersing them in a tank of liquid flooded with high-frequency sounds waves. These non-audible sound waves create a scrubbing brush action within the fluid. They are used for cleaning jewelry, for mixing chemicals- all sorts. Anything you put into the tank gets vibrated at very high-frequency, in this case, 28,000 times a second.
The process is brought about by high-frequency electrical energy that is converted by a transducer into high-frequency sound waves – ultrasonic energy. Its ability to clean even the most tenacious substances from items derives from the core of the unit: the transducer. The cleaning power of a unit stems from the transducers performance.
The efficiency of the transducer will affect both the cleaning time and efficacy achieved during the cleaning cycle. A poor quality transducer will use more power and take longer to clean items than a good transducer. The ultrasonic energy enters the liquid within the tank and causes the rapid formation and collapse of minute bubbles: a phenomenon known as cavitation. The bubbles rapidly increase in size until they implode against the surface of the item immersed in the tank in an enormous energy release, which lifts contamination off the surface and innermost recesses of intricately shaped parts.
