How Ultrasonics Work

Ultrasonic Cleaning Uses sound waves that are introduced into the cleaning liquid by means of "transducers" mounted to the cleaning tank. The sound waves travel through the tank and create waves of compression and expansion in the liquid. In the compression wave, the molecules of the cleaning liquid are compressed together tightly. Conversely, in the expansion wave, the molecules are pulled apart rapidly. The expansion is so dramatic that the molecules are ripped apart creating microscopic bubbles. Even thought the bubbles are too small to be seen by the naked eye they contain a partial vacuum during the split second they exist. As the pressure around the bubbles becomes great, the fluid around the bubble rushes in collapsing the bubble very rapidly.

Ultrasonic cleaning is state-of-the-art technology.

It utilizes a digital generator powering transducers submerged in a tank of hot water. The transducers vibrate at a frequency of 40 KHz creating millions and millions of tiny bubbles that form and implode. This repeated formation and implosion creates a gentle cleaning action known as Cavitation. Cavitation has the ability to not only clean the surfaces of items, but also penetrate into the difficult to clean internal and crevice areas. It is safe and gentle. Ultrasonics will not scratch, pit or damage items the way that conventional cleaning methods can.

Why is ultrasonic cleaning so effective and efficient?

Ultrasonic cleaners accomplish the cleaning task within seconds. Window blind cleaning takes only 15 to 30 seconds per blind. It can remove build-up of dirt, nicotine, grease or soot. Hard-to-clean areas such as the headrail, cords and ladders also become clean, adding longevity of use and luster to the blind. Fire restoration contents that are covered with soot may be cleanable within 5 to 15 seconds. This eliminates the conventional and tedious method of hand wiping with expensive chemicals while cleaning more items than were previously possible.
