The Essential Steps to Clean Parts

Parts cleaning is an essential step in many industrial and automotive processes. As a prelude to the reassembly of remanufactured engines, cleaning the parts is the most basic yet important procedure in machine shops and custom engine shops. There are three main stages in Ultrasonic cleaning: washing, rinsing, and drying. Continue reading “The Essential Steps to Clean Parts”

How Ultrasonics Work

Ultrasonic cleaning is a precision parts cleaning technology that uses high-frequency sound waves to remove dirt and contaminants from parts. Micron-sized bubbles are formed from the alternating pressure waves generated from high-energy transducers. Energy is transferred to and stored within these bubbles. As the bubbles contact the parts to be cleaned, they implode, releasing the stored energy and creating a micro jet, with a kind of scrubbing action that dislodges contaminants from the parts.  Dirt, oils and other dislodged contaminants then settle to the bottom of the tank.
