Why Use an Ultrasonic Cleaner

There are many reasons for using our Ultrasonic Cleaner, here are some facts.

The higher the frequency, the smaller the bubbles, smaller the bubbles, the greater the risk of damage. 35 kHz to 40 kHz is the sweet spot. Not 45, not 80, not 90 kHz.

To review:

Under pressure of continuous vibration by the ultrasonic generator at the bottom of the tank: these bubbles stretch and compress at a fast rate. Once they reach a certain size, as determined by the frequency and strength of the sound waves produced, the bubbles lose structural integrity and collapse violently. When these implosions happen near a surface, object, the bubbles emit high-powered streams of plasma that travel at more than 500 miles per hour and collide with, agitate and remove even very tiny particles and substances from that surface.

Using a surfactant attracts these bubbles to the record.

In an ultrasonic cleaning machine, this happens millions of times per second, but because cavitation bubbles are so small the process is both highly effective and very gentle. Indeed where ultrasonic technology can be used to clean metals, plastics, glass, rubber and ceramics. It effectively removes a wide variety of contaminants, even if present only in trace amounts, including dust, dirt, rust, oil, grease, soot, mold, carbon deposits, polishing compounds, wax, pigments, lime scale, bacteria, algae, fungus, fingerprints and biological soil.

These contaminants typically are removed even if they are tightly adhered to or embedded onto solid surfaces, or if they are in remote cracks or tiny crevices of an object.

Bubble size relates to how much energy is released when they implode. That’s why a higher frequency produces less intense cleaning, but because a higher frequency yields more bubbles, it’s a better choice for cleaning parts with very tiny features such as blind holes, channels and threads. You will get a better distribution of cavitation bubbles on all surfaces of the parts being cleaned. THIS FOR PARTS.

The most commonly used ultrasonic frequency range is 35-40 kHz, We use 35 kHz. This is ideal for records and for routine cleaning jobs.

Higher frequencies such as 130 kHz are used for fine cleaning jobs and for the cleaning of highly sensitive surfaces including microelectronics, printed circuit boards and precision optics.

The 35 kHz frequency has a good combination of power, penetration, and even energy distribution, and can successfully address most cleaning applications when combined with a properly-engineered cleaning system.

35 kHz ultrasonic cleaners are quieter in operation and produce a more gentle cleaning action. It is appropriate for the removal of common contaminants from records. Not so good for high tolerance parts of which a record is not. They also do not damage the basin.

Our record spacing has been designed so as to provide the desired effect cleaning 4 records simultaneously and well.
