Ultrasonic Cleaning Generators

At the heart of every precision cleaning job is a tough, durable ultrasonic cleaning generator. Ultrasonic Power Corporation’s high-quality, high-performing ultrasonic generators deliver the critical power you need to help clean products of any shape and size in the most extreme conditions.

Our patented ultrasonic generators are designed to run 24-7 feature modulation sweep and power intensity control circuitry.

These ultrasonic generators, matched with our Vibra-bar® transducers, can be used with either our own ultrasonic cleaning systems or with systems of your own design. Multiple generators can be banked to deliver enough power to handle tanks as large as 2000 gallons.

Why Use an Ultrasonic Generator? 

A high-performance generator is a vital component of an effective ultrasonic cleaning system. Ultrasonic cleaning is an incredibly effective method for cleaning a broad range of objects. The cleaner is fitted with transducers that cause the formation and collapse of tiny bubbles in the cleaning fluid. This process, called cavitation, removes dirt and other contaminants from the surface of objects.

While this cleaning method is gentle, it requires a large amount of power. And for that you need a robust and highly durable generator. These can be used in conjunction with our cleaning systems or added to existing tanks. Need additional power for larger tanks? Simply combine multiple generators.

Why Choose an Ultrasonic Power Ultrasonic Generator?

UPCorp prides itself on expert craftsmanship and superior quality. Our generators can provide the power to thoroughly clean virtually any object. Each ultrasonic power generator is designed and constructed in the US, meets FCC requirements, and comes with a five-year warranty. 

Additional features of a UPCorp ultrasonic cleaner generator include simultaneous multi-frequency, sweep circuit (to eliminate hot spots and dead zones), overheat protection, and a transducer status indicator. Units have external PLC control compatibility and built-in power intensity control. They are even capable of continuous operation.

What is an ultrasonic generator?

An ultrasonic generator provides the specific power and frequency required to power transducers. High-end industrial generators control intensity and sweep, and can operate reliably in harsh conditions.

What are ultrasonic waves?

Ultrasonic cleaner waves are sound waves transmitted above 20,000 Hz (20 kHz or 20,000 cycles per second), or higher than the frequency detectable by humans. Sound waves are created by the vibration of an object, which causes the air molecules around it to vibrate. These vibrations cause our eardrums to vibrate, which the brain then interprets as sound. When the original vibration is very fast, so are the sound waves, and the pitch of the sound created is too high for the human ear to hear.

How does an ultrasonic generator work?

An ultrasonic cleaner generator acts as a power supply to the unit. AC electrical energy from the outlet is transformed into high-voltage electrical pulses which energize the transducer. The transducer then converts this electrical energy into mechanical energy in the form of ultrasonic waves.

What does an ultrasonic generator do?

The ultrasonic power generator provides electrical energy to the unit's transducers. Ultrasonic cleaning requires a high voltage and a specific ultrasonic frequency. The generator receives energy from the power source and must convert it to the proper voltage, amperage, and frequency before transmitting it to the transducer. As a result, it is sometimes referred to as an ultrasonic frequency generator.

What is the best frequency for ultrasonic cleaner?

The ideal ultrasonic frequency depends on your application, but 40 kHz is suitable for most applications. Lower frequencies clean more aggressively, so for example, 20-25 kHz might be used for large automotive parts. Higher frequencies can penetrate through crevices and small holes more easily and are less aggressive, so these are often used for delicate or sensitive applications such as jewelry cleaning. Not sure what you need? Our experts will advise you on the ideal ultrasonic frequency generator for your application.

What liquid goes in an ultrasonic cleaner?

There are a range of detergents available for ultrasonic cleaning, all suitable for different applications. In some cases, water or a very mild detergent can be used. Other applications call for various alkaline, caustic, acidic, or enzymatic solutions.

How does ultrasonic sound clean parts?

Ultrasonic transducers in the cleaning unit produce high-frequency sound waves inaudible to humans. These waves cause the formation and collapse of tiny bubbles in the cleaning fluid. In a process called cavitation, the implosion of these bubbles results in the release of tiny jets of fluid, forceful enough to remove contaminants from the surface of submerged objects.
