What is an ultrasonic cleaning tank?

An ultrasonic cleaning tank, also known as an ultrasonic bath, is a device used to effectively clean various objects using ultrasonic waves. This type of device is commonly used in many fields, including industry, medicine, jewelry, watchmaking, electronics, optics and many others.

Here is how an ultrasonic cleaning tank generally works:

  1. Principle of ultrasound : The ultrasonic cleaning tank uses piezoelectric transducers to convert electrical energy into high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations (typically between 20 and 400 kHz). These vibrations are transmitted through the cleaning liquid contained in the tank.
  2. Formation of cavitation bubbles : Ultrasonic vibrations generate a phenomenon called cavitation, where small vacuum bubbles form and quickly implode in the cleaning fluid. These implosions create shear forces and high-energy liquid jets that act on the surface of the objects to be cleaned.
  3. Deep cleaning : the shear forces and liquid jets generated by cavitation effectively dislodge contaminants, dirt, particles and residue from the objects to be cleaned, even in hard-to-reach areas or crevices.
  4. Using cleaning fluid : the ultrasonic cleaning tank is filled with a cleaning liquid specially formulated to optimize the ultrasonic cleaning process. This liquid can be plain water, a detergent solution or a specific solvent depending on the types of objects to be cleaned and the contaminants to be removed.

Ultrasonic cleaning tanks are available in a variety of sizes and capacities to meet specific cleaning needs. They are often used to clean a wide range of objects, including metal parts, electronic components, medical instruments, jewelry, eyeglasses, watches, auto parts, machine parts, and much more.

Examples of uses of an ultrasonic cleaning tank

Here are some examples of common uses of an ultrasonic cleaning tank in different areas:

  1. Manufacturing industry :
    • Cleaning of mechanical parts, such as metal parts, tools, dies and molds.
    • Removal of grease, oil, lubricants and production residues from parts.
    • Surface preparation before coating, plating or painting.
  2. Electronics industry :
    • Cleaning electronic components, such as printed circuits, electronic chips and connectors.
    • Removal of solder flux, resin, grease and other contaminants on components.
  3. Automobile industry :
    • Cleaning automotive parts, such as fuel injectors, carburetors, valves, pistons and cylinder heads.
    • Removal of oil, grease, fuel deposits and combustion residues.
  4. Aerospace industry :
    • Cleaning of aerospace components, such as turbines, compressors, injectors, heat exchangers and engine parts.
    • Removal of grease, oil, lubricants and manufacturing process residues.
  5. Medical industry :
    • Cleaning medical instruments, such as surgical instruments, dental devices, endoscopy instruments and implants.
    • Elimination of biocontamination, bodily fluids and drug residues.
  6. Jewelry and watches :
    • Cleaning of precious metal jewelry, precious stones and watches.
    • Removal of dirt, dust, body oils and polish residue.
  7. Food and catering industry :
    • Cleaning kitchen equipment, such as baskets, filters, dishes, utensils and cooking instruments.
    • Removal of food residue, fats, oils and cooking deposits.

These examples illustrate the diversity of possible applications of an ultrasonic cleaning tank in different industrial sectors to clean a variety of objects and materials.
