Certain Ultrasonic Cleaners Simply Work Better…Here’s Why

Posted by UltraSonic LLC on Jan 12, 2018 2:36:01 PM


At UltraSonic LLC, we offer a full line of industry-leading ultrasonic cleaning machines designed to clean your toughest industrial, automotive, medical and aerospace parts. In addition to our standard-design table-top machines, we offer stand-alone console ultrasonic cleaners with clear advantages over competing models.

In past UltraSonic LLC blogs, we’ve discussed many of the distinct advantages that separate our ultrasonic cleaners from other cleaning machine designs. In this blog, we want to highlight two design advantages in particular: side-mounted transducers and our V-bottom design.

Side-mounted transducers. Our stainless steel tanks on our console ultrasonic cleaners feature ceramic transducers attached to the side of the tank, or in immersible containers. These side-mounted transducers deliver enhanced cleaning action through a more effective cleaning process.

What do we mean by that? While the cleaning action from the top of the tank to the bottom of the tank remains the same, the side-mounted transducers offer horizontal cleaning from two directions as well. Traditionally, transducers have been mounted on the bottom of the ultrasonic cleaning tank, so when dirt and/or debris falls to the bottom of that tank, it falls on the transducers, robbing you of cleaning power. An UltraSonic LLC console machine with side-mounted transducers eliminates dead spots to deliver consistent cleaning action every time.

V-bottom design. Our V-bottom design on our console ultrasonic cleaners makes it easy to clean between batches. V-bottom tanks are also designed to collect particles that fall off in the cleaning process without disturbing transducers and inhibiting their ability to deliver effective cavitation. Many ultrasonic cleaner manufacturers offer only flat-bottom tanks with transducers mounted on the bottom of their console machines. This creates fundamental problems. Parts being cleaned should be placed at least 1-2 inches away from the transducers. Yet when you cover the transducers with parts and dirt, the cavitation gets distorted, which mitigates its cleaning power.

Combined with our line of Ultra Soaps, filters and baskets, our UltraSonic LLC parts cleaning machines are employee and environmentally friendly, reducing/replacing the need for hazardous solvents, saving labor costs and delivering increasing profit for your industrial, automotive, aerospace or medical operation.

Finally, a word about sales and service. We certainly wouldn’t categorize these as design or engineering considerations, but as we’ve said before in past blogs, an ultrasonic industrial parts cleaner is only as good as the sales and service capabilities of the people who stand behind it. At UltraSonic LLC, we offer highly personalized service, and we stand behind our products 100 percent. If you ever have a problem or a question, troubleshooting is a phone call away, and you’ll never have to navigate a menu of automated attendant options on the phone. If we can’t resolve a problem with a tank or a part through personalized troubleshooting, we’ll fix it or replace it with little or no disruption to your operation.
