Our bench top ultrasonic parts cleaner and systems provide a precision clean part surface by cavitating cleaning solution causing a micro-scrubbing of the part surface. The common industry standard ultrasonic frequency is 40 kHz, but…
Not ultrasonic cleaners are created equal…
It’s a well-known fact that piezoelectric ultrasonic tranducers can decay or fade overtime. This ultrasonic cleaning transducer degradation can be detrimental to the stability of some critical cleaning processes, but many unknowingly buy the cheapest ultrasonic cleaner tank thinking there isn’t any difference in ultrasonic cleaning machines. This issue causes end users just replace their tanks every 2-5 years which can be a costly ongoing expense.
The proper solution is to use ultrasonics tanks that have monitoring circuitry to measure this decay (& part loading) and adjust the ultrasonic power output accordingly. This more than doubles the expected life of the ultrasonics. The video above shows the tuning of an ultrasonic tank which utilizes this constant transducer monitoring to ensure parts see the same ultrasonic energy time in and time out.
Frequency sweeping is used to help equalize the ultrasonic energy distribution throughout the depth of the tank, but it doesn’t help the degradation explained above.
Our benchtop ultrasonic parts washer tanks can be combined to utilize a wash, rinse, rinse staging and also added with our parts dryer for a complete cleaning line. Even better yet, this whole technology can easily be automated for a wash, rinse, and dry system.
- Dental and jewelry industry
- Valve bodies and manifolds with small internals not accessible for cleaning by forced spray or mechanical removal
- Medical device stainless steel ultrasonic cleaning
- Aerospace parts cleaning
- Ultrasonic part cleaning of water-soluble machining coolants, chips, particulate, and true machining/cutting oils, buffing, polishing and lapping compounds.
- Machine centers part washing using ultrasonic cleaning machines
- General washing for maintenance, manufacturing, rework and/or remanufacturing.
We can easily make any tank configuration sizing required for your application with little to no additional custom size pricing. Below are a few common configurations for a benchtop ultrasonic parts washer.
