Q: How Does Ultrasonic Cleaning Work?
A: Dirty items come clean in ultrasonic cleaning systems when millions of superheated bubbles scrub grime and oxidation away with stunning results. How? Through the process of de-cavitation.
Ultrasonic cleaning systems send high-frequency sound waves ripping through an ultrasonic cleaning solution leaving superheated bubbles in the waves’ wake. When these bubbles, called cavitations, collapse, called decapitation, the heat and energy of their implosions work with the specially formulated ultrasonic cleaning solution to remove dirt, oils, residue, and oxidation from the surface of the contaminated item.
Imagine the ability to get into the tiniest of nooks and crannies where dirt and grime hide and then imagine scrubbing that surface ultra clean. With conventional cleaning – brushes, rags, and elbow grease – this task seems impossible. But the cavitating cleaning action of an ultrasonic cleaning system does just that – It goes where brush bristles can’t.
