An Introduction to How Ultrasonic Cleaning Works?

Ultrasonic cleaning uses high-frequency, high-intensity sound waves in a liquid to facilitate or enhance the removal of foreign contaminants from surfaces submerged in an ultrasonically activated tank. Ultrasonic cleaning is a technology unique in its ability to remove contaminants that other technologies cannot remove and, in its ability, to effectively clean areas that are not accessible using other methods. Ultrasonic cleaning relies on the jetting action of collapsing cavitation bubbles in contact with a surface to provide a high-pressure jet of fluid against the surface, when used in conjunction with a particular chemical for the specific contaminant the results are outstanding. It is a common misconception that ultrasonics in water alone is enough for cavitation to take place but in fact because of water’s naturally occurring surface tension, only a small amount of the individual water molecule ever come into contact with the item being cleaned. The right chemical to get full contact and maximum cavitation is of fundamental importance. While the basics of ultrasonic cleaning are simple, there are many factors that affect how successful your ultrasonic cleaning process will be.

What Our Customers Say About us

We approached Sonic Solutions after our parts manufacturers let us down and wasted precious time by supplying oily parts. Not only were they friendly, helpful and happy to rush our parts through - the quality was unbelievable! They arrived back at our factory just in time to not hold up production and we couldn't recommend them highly enough.

Our company AssetCool found the entire team at Sonic Solutions to be responsive and incredibly supportive of a new project. Their technical knowledge is superb, and they delivered exactly what they promised. We're very happy to recommend them to anyone with ultrasonic cleaning needs, and look forward to working with them again in the future.

I reached out with a problem to various companies prior to talking with Sonic Solutions, most were unhelpful. These guys insisted on the first trial being for free! The job was excellent and the turn around time very impressive. We are now setting up a monthly cleaning regime with them. A joy to deal with.
