What is Ultrasonic Cleaning?
Ultrasonic cleaning is simply sound waves being transmitted from a tank, through a cleaning solution and onto your items creating a precess known as cavitation. This is where micron sized bubbles create a suction jet against your item which lifts the contaminants off the item being cleaned. Due to the small size of these jets and the relatively large energy, ultrasonic cleaning has the ability to reach into small crevices and remove entrapped contamination very effectively. The process is tough enough for carburettors but gentle enough for electronics and surgical instruments.
What We Clean?
Over the years we have cleaned a wide variety of items for our customers. Whether your in the print industry and require your anilox rollers cleaning, or you’re undertaking a classic car restoration and need your cylinder heads cleaned, we can help. Ultrasonic cleaning is an powerful method of cleaning most materials and contaminants and can provide a cost effective solution to your dirt problem. Below are some examples of cleaning work we have carried out for customers.
Grease can be really stubborn to clean but with the right chemical selection in an ultrasonic tank, it can be removed in a breeze. These chemicals are recommended for ultrasonic degreasing but you should always check which chemical is compatible with the material you are trying to clean to avoid accidental damage.
Although general dirt and grime can be removed through pretty much any cleaning method, an ultrasonic tank with the right chemical can reduce time and effort spent cleaning to leave you to handle more important matters. With the correct chemical selection and a high powered ultrasonic tank, you can reduce cleaning time to mere minutes.
Cleaning is important within the food industry, but it can also be quite tough. Burnt on food can be tricky to remove by hand but with the right chemical in a powerful ultrasonic tank, you can reduce time and labour and ultimately save you money. To remove food products we recommend using a caustic based chemical.
Rust can be a real challenge to remove, even some of the products on the market specifically designed to remove rust struggle. Luckily we have a chemical that lifts rust better than any other product we have seen.
For the removal of inks, there isn’t one chemical that is effective at cleaning all different ink types. Some chemicals are great at removing a certain type of ink but are limited by how you can use them (eg. a chemical might be great at removing UV ink but rubbish to use in ultrasonics) to help you find the right chemical for your desired purpose.
Scale can cause many problems that if ignored can become really expensive to fix. Scale is caused when hard water (water that contains a higher concentration of dissolved minerals like calcium and magnesium) evaporates, leaving behind a calcium carbonate deposit. Limescale can build up on any surface that hard water comes into contact with.
