The article on effective ultrasonic cleaning basics is kindly presented by Hilsonic Company – a far-famed UK ultrasonic cleaner manufacturer with 12 years of successful track record. The company experts are sharing their knowledge on the aspects having a direct impact on ultrasonic cleaning quality.

The power matters

At frequencies around 400 Hz cleaning efficiency is maintained at a sufficiently large distance from the source of vibrations, while at low frequencies it sharply decreases with increasing this distance, which is caused due to significant absorption of ultrasonic cavitation.

With the increase in power increases the intensity of the ultrasonic vibrations and cavitation improves the cleaning efficiency. However, if too much power is given a sharp rise in the intensity of cavitation in the vicinity of the source of ultrasonic vibrations is observed which contributes to the loss of energy and reduction of purification efficiency. Too high power of ultrasonic vibrations may cause undesirable mechanical damage to the workpiece as well as surface erosion. Continue reading “Ultrasonic Cleaning Effectiveness Factors Overview”
