Ultrasonic cleaning is a technology that blasts high-frequency, high-intensity sound waves into liquid, creating vibrations that dislodge particles from the submerged object to clean it. While this cleaning technology is highly effective, the vibrations can cause damage to the system if objects are left uncontained in the device. Cleaning baskets can withstand repeated and intense ultrasonic vibrations while containing the components being cleaned and separating them from the bottom of the tank, extending the service life of your ultrasonic cleaning system.
Ultrasonic Cleaning Basket Applications
Ultrasonic cleaning emits sound waves at a frequency too high for humans to hear, ranging from 20 to 40 kHz, but occasionally as high as 1MHz. The device emits these strong frequencies into a container filled with liquid containing a tool needing cleaning, creating intense vibrations. This unique technology can remove contaminants and particles that other cleaning methods are unable to remove; however, this method has the potential to cause damage to the components being cleaned. A well-designed ultrasonic cleaner basket can prevent damage to both the component and the cleaning system.
Ultrasonic cleaning has become popular in manufacturing sectors such as the aerospace, pharmaceutical, medical, and engineering industries. The tools and components used in these industries are often costly to replace, making it important to protect them during the cleaning process. Cleaning baskets can prevent part-to-part contact, helping the tools withstand the repeated vibrations and maintaining their structural integrity.
Ultrasonic Cleaning Basket Capabilities
To use ultrasonic cleaning effectively, it is important to use a basket that is made from high-quality materials and designed to provide optimal protection. A well-designed basket will provide a range of other benefits and capabilities, including:
- Resistance to Corrosion: Baskets will regularly be submerged in water or cleaning fluids. Ultrasonic cleaning baskets from E Tube and Wire are made from corrosion-resistant materials.
- Versatility: There are several types of cleaning baskets to choose from depending on the type and size of components you will be cleaning, the cavitation levels required, and the type of cleaning liquid used. Baskets can also be customized to fit any size cleaning device.
- Saves Money: Cleaning baskets provide critical protection to fragile components, saving your company money and reducing downtime caused by replacing damaged parts.
Ultrasonic cleaning is an efficient, cost-effective cleaning option for many tools and components. However, it is important to choose a high-quality ultrasonic basket to protect your valuable parts from damage during the cleaning process.
