What is an Ultrasonic cleaner ?

A lot of people do not understand how Ultrasonic cleaning works.  Ultrasonics by itself is just sound frequencies higher than what you can hear.Transducer

Can you imagine sound waves being passed through your cleaning solution?  Not quite playing music, but at a specific frequency.  Transducers like the one shown here generate bubbles in the solution. These bubbles grow in size to a point that they implode.The transducers are fitted to the bottom of the cleaning tanks , as the tank size goes up so does the number of transducers .This gives an even clean as the transducers are aranged to give better tank coverage. 

                                                                                                                                                          With an ultrasonic cleaner we create bubbles in the liquid ,millions of them and when they implode. The fluid surrounding the bubbles also collapses with huge force creating shock waves upwards of 20,000 PSI or 140 MPa.  This cavitation effect is used to loosen the contaminants on the surface of your article being cleaned and also into all the little cracks and crevices..

That is the basis of our ultrasonic cleaning and why ultrasonics is such a strong cleaning force....
