One of the most common questions about ultrasonic cleaning is “What is possible to clean with an ultrasonic cleaner?”
For people who don’t know much about ultrasonic technology and how an ultrasonic cleaner actually works it might seem like there are only specific items you can clean with it. Well, this is actually the exact opposite to what an ultrasonic cleaner is. It is one of the most multi functional machines you will ever come across when it comes to cleaning.
Ultrasonic cleaning can be used for cleaning pretty much anything you need to clean. From baby gear, toys, watch straps, jewellery, coins, keys, glasses, and lenses to small tools, cutlery, fountain pens, golf clubs, electronic equipment, dental instruments, surgical instruments, makeup brushes, razors, bigger tools and equipment and many more.
The shortest and simplest way to answer “What can you clean with an ultrasonic cleaner?” is to tell you what you CAN’T clean.
Generally there are two main categories of items which you can not clean with an ultrasonic cleaner. Items which shouldn’t be submerged in water because the liquid will damage them and items which can’t be easily dried. That’s it. Everything else can be cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner.
For domestic use people usually choose one of the cleaners from our HOME series. Our customers are usually interested in cleaning jewelry, glasses, brushes and collectible coins for removing dust, oil and finger prints. Smaller units from the PRO series are also suitable for cleaning small auto parts, technical tools, handy work equipment, baby toys and all kinds of hobby applications.
Our larger units from PRO series are also used in industry and cleaning pharmaceutical instruments. Many dentists, tattoo artists and doctors in general use an ultrasonic cleaner for the preparation of their tools and instruments before disinfection. Then we developed an entire industrial range for cleaning equipment used in industry and manufacturing. In this area an ultrasonic cleaner performs really well in the sense that you can submerge a large number of items in the tank and wait for the cleaner to do its job. Depending on what kind of dirt you are trying to remove and the materials you are cleaning we offer a wide range of cleaning solutions. Therefore your job of cleaning becomes even easier and faster.
Degassing is an option on our models from PRO – S series, which prepares the liquid for the fastest possible cleaning. It dissolves bubbles from liquid, making the process of cleaning much faster and more efficient. Preparing the solution before cleaning without this function takes some time, effort and skill. With the Degas button this is done in less than a minute.
Ultrasonic frequency of 40kHz provides thorough but gentle cleaning appropriate for softer metals, plastics, and products with polished surfaces. The smaller bubbles produced at this frequency are less likely to cause surface damage and are also better able to penetrate tight areas such as seams, crevices and blind holes.
Ultrasonic frequency of 28 kHz provides strong and very effective cleaning, which is optimal for large flat surfaces. It has stronger cleaning effect – it creates larger bubbles with higher power and is therefore more efficient for strong enough materials.
We are expanding the range of our industrial cleaners constantly, but as this technology is evolving our customer base is also expanding. Ultrasonic cleaning is thus becoming recognized as one of the most efficient tools for cleaning. Whether items you are trying to clean are too big, or you would like to make cleaning even more automated. We can always talk about building a special cleaner just for your materials and needs.
