If spray washing is not sufficiently effective or regulations prevent its use, ultrasound washing is the only alternative - as well as being less costly and more eco-friendly. This approach offers deep, high quality cleaning, with no need for the operator to come into contact with hazardous substances; it also ensures that a single washing pass is sufficient to remove all contaminants from all surfaces - even the tiniest cavities. Ultrasound washing reduces the risk of imperfectly clean parts and reduces labour costs since no labour intensive manual finishing is required. Materials which can be cleaned by ultrasound include metal, glass, ceramic and many others.
THE HIGH QUALITY OF ULTRASOUND WASHING
- Guarantees a high quality, deep wash
- Ideal for articulated components and complex parts
- Acts effectively without the use of solvents
- Very low running costs, maintenance free
Ultrasound cleaning uses high frequency sound to remove contaminants from a surface immersed in water: dirt, oil, grease, ink, paint, glue, detaching agents… It is powerful enough to remove the most tenacious contaminants, but delicate enough not to damage the underlying surface; it penetrates into the smallest cracks and between closely joined parts. .
Ultrasonic cleaning is particularly effective because it acts at a molecular level. The transducers transfer the ultrasonic power created by the generator to the liquid via a vibrating diaphragm. The strong alternating pressure created in the liquid forms microscopic bubbles that implode and disintegrate the dirt.
