Ultrasonic cleaning is based on the cavitation effect caused by high-frequency ultrasonic wave vibration signals in the fluid. Microscopic bubbles are formed, and they implode violently causing cavitation which creates an intense scrubbing action on the surface of the item being cleaned. The bubbles are small enough to penetrate microscopic crevices, cleaning them thoroughly and consistently.
So ultrasonic cleaning is extremely effective at removing dirt and grime which would normally require tedious manual cleaning by hand. so It has been widely used in a variety of instruments and mechanical parts such as carburetors.
When using the ultrasonic cleaner for cleaning, it’s eco-friendly, you don’t need a cleaning solvent or a detergent. but when for some special cleaning tasks, you will need a ultrasonic cleaner detergent.
What ultrasonic cleaner detergent should be chosen for ultrasonic washing?
1)Acidic solutions (PH ≤5.0,)for cleaning metal objects, it’s removing lime deposits, scale, rust, and mineral from ferrous metals.
2)Alkaline solutions (PH≥10), are for cleaning plastic materials, ceramics, and glass, easy for washing tin, brass, zinc, copper, stainless steel, iron, and steel. so if you clean your jewelry, it’s a good choice for it.
3)Enzymatic solutions are used to remove protein-based contaminants from plastics, glass, aluminum, brass, titanium, and stainless which are widely in the food and medical industries.
4)High caustic solutions are used to remove heavy waxes, oils, and grease from steel, cast iron, and stain steel.
5)De-ionized water washing rubber, plastics, and metal.
How to choose the right ultrasonic cleaner detergent?
- Confirm the contaminant type need to be removed,
- The material of objects that you want to clean.
- Testing with Greatsonic cleaner.
But some objects can’t be using ultrasonic cleaner cleaning, such as:
1, Ultrasonic cleaning can’t be cleaned painted, piezoelectric ceramic sheets, soft material.
2, Objects with unsafe factors, such as corrosion, explosion, and combustion.
3, The objects which fragile epidermis and material with high sound absorption (such as cloth, rubber, and dirt with high viscosity)
4, Ultrasonic cleaner can’t be cleaning nano-scale dust and carpets
5, Objects that are afraid of vibration and fragile.
