Ultrasonic technology has made great strides in multiple industries, the cleaning industry being one of the most successful. The process of ultrasonic cavitation is suitable for a plethora of manufacturing cleaning applications, whether it’s decontaminating manufactured products or cleaning the machinery that is used to produce them.
With the amazing strength and benefits of ultrasonic cleaning, it is not surprising that many manufacturing facilities have started using ultrasonic cleaning technologies to improve their efficiency. Optimization can be key to the bottom line of any manufacturing plant, and ultrasonic cleaning can deliver the best results. By utilizing ultrasonic cleaning, you can increase the quality and rate of production through a better, and more efficient cleaning process that other traditional cleaners just can’t provide.
When compared to other methods of cleaning, ultrasonics is the superior choice for a precision and uniform clean. Spray-wash cabinets do well at removing surface dirt, but cannot reach into crevices of parts or equipment. Hot tanks melt away grease and grime, but are not reliable when it comes to getting a consistent clean every time.
In the ultrasonic cleaning process, turbulence in the liquid is created by “cavitation.” The primary cleaning mechanism is the energy released through cavitation. The bubbles are so tiny they are not visible to the eye, yet when each bubble collapses, it creates a huge shock wave on a microscopic level and a powerful cleaning action that removes dirt, grease, oil, and more. When the ultrasonic process takes place, combined with non-toxic detergents, parts and equipment experience a clean that reaches every surface and crevice. Manual and other conventional means to cleaning hardly compete with the power of ultrasonic cleaning.
Not only does your equipment get thoroughly cleaned to run at peak efficiency, but the parts and products a plant produces can receive that same kind of clean. When cleaning the products, you are not only guaranteeing that they go to customers and clients in the best condition possible, but you create a reputation for your facility that only the most quality parts are created and sold.
Make no mistake: ultrasonic cleaning truly creates a precision clean for your parts and equipment. Ultrasonic cleaners contribute other ways to optimize your facility to peak efficiency by increasing production speed and efficiency in addition to cutting costs from your bottom line.
