Some items that are commonly cleaned by ultrasonic cleaners are surgical instruments, automobile engine parts, jewelry and watches. The following materials are safe for use inside ultrasonic cleaners:
- Stainless Steel and Mild Steel
- Numerous alloys
Ultrasonic parts cleaners are somewhat like pressure pumps that use high-pressure water or chemicals to clean even the toughest and oldest grime from hard to reach places. Pressure pumps can in fact be used to clean larger engine parts or larger object, while ultrasonic cleaners can be used on smaller and delicate parts and objects.
How Does an Ultrasonic Parts Cleaner Work?
Turn off the Device:
- Choosing the Appropriate Aqueous Solution: The cleaning solution should be suitable for the part that is to be cleaned. Items like jewelry and watches need to be handled with special care and can be easily damaged by harsh chemicals. It is the solution which will be doing the cleaning, not the ultrasonic sound waves. The cleaning solutions are heated up to 50-65 C when they are being used by the ultrasonic cleaner. Check out our parts washer solvents.
- Prepare the Device: The solution and the parts to be cleaned are placed inside the ultrasonic cleaner.
- Turn on the Device: The device is then turned on and ultrasonic sound waves start being produced by it.
- The Cleaning Process: The sound waves will manipulate the cleaning solution in such a way that is will start to form cavitation bubbles. These bubbles will allow the solution to enter even the finest cracks in the object being cleaned. Therefore, even the toughest grime in the tiniest cracks will be cleaned.
This process barely takes a few minutes. Once, the device is turned off the shiny and clean object can be removed from the ultrasonic parts cleaner.
