An essential component of an effective contents restoration assembly line is a reliable ultrasonic drying process. Since industrial drying applications can be done three different ways (oven dryer, centrifugal dryer, re-circulating dryer), which method is right for you?
If you have questions, we encourage you to talk to an ultrasonic consultant today, like the ones at Omegasonics (http://www.Omegasonics.com?sm=yt). They can assist you with determining which drying system best meets your drying needs. Feel free to also give our team a call at (888) 420-4445.
Fire fighters have some of the most dangerous jobs in our country. Not only are they placed in life threatening situations on a regular basis, but did you know that their gear, also referred to as Personal Protective Equipment, or “PPE” for short, can also become health hazards for them?
I’ve spoken with many fire houses, and I’ve heard stories of fire fighters who are injured every year due to microbial exposure and burn incidents directly related to the material degradation of their PPE. The good news is that there is a solution to this issue, and it is being used by a growing number of fire stations across the country.
If you’d like to learn more about the advanced cleaning of PPE, or if you have questions about how you can bring the proper equipment to your station – give our team a call at (888) 420-4445 or visit our website at http://www.Omegasonics.com?sm=bl.
Ultrasonic cleaning utilizes the energy of collapsing bubbles to create an agitating action and clean objects on a microscopic level. Ultrasonic cleaners produce these bubbles when high frequency sound waves are transmitted through the liquid bath containing the object to be cleaned. The effect of temperature on the cleaning action was presented in a previous post. In this post, the effect of frequency has on the impact of industrial ultrasonic cleaners will be presented.
Sound waves are compressional waves. This means the molecules of whatever substance they are traveling through (air or water, for instance) are alternately squeezed together and spread apart as the wave passes. When the frequency of a wave increases, the number of compressions occurring at a point each second increases. Since the wave moves at a constant speed, this means the compressions are closer together in space as well as in time.
Imagine watching as a train passes by. Now imagine counting the number of cars on the train passing by each minute. If the number of cars passing by increases, but the speed of the train stays the same, the cars must be getting shorter in length. As the frequency of cars passing by increases, the distance between the cars must decrease if the speed stays the same.
The result of increasing the frequency in ultrasonic cleaning is to reduce the space between compressions, which reduces the size of the bubbles created by the sound waves. This also reduces the energy released when these bubbles collapse. Therefore, industrial ultrasonic cleaners operating at higher frequencies are good for cleaning fine particles or very small features. Lower frequencies are best suited for heavy cleaning and coarse contaminants.
Frank shares how different ultrasonic frequencies can effectively be used for various ultrasonic cleaning jobs.
Ultimately, the choice of frequency depends on the type of cleaning desired and the type of object being cleaned. In the final installment, we will discuss why the frequency must be varied throughout the ultrasonic cleaning process.
An assembly-line ultrasonic contents restoration processing system allows a staff of 3-4 technicians to increase production by 500%. Disaster restoration companies usually clean fire, smoke, and water damaged contents manually. The ultrasonic process does a more thorough job of cleaning. Contents restoration companies recover more contents for homeowners. Insurance companies save millions of dollars in total loss claims. Restoration companies are more profitable due to increased efficiency.
Have you ever tried to impress your friends? Try doing something with no hands! Have you ever tried to really impress your potential or existing clients? Show them how you can lower their cleaning costs… with no hands!
But how can you clean something ultrasonically with no hands? Ultrasonic technology already significantly reduces the number of employees and labor time required to clean dirty industrial parts. We thought, “Why not take it a step further and help our clients lower cleaning expenses even more?”
Our latest product, the Autosonic Q1, cleans, rinses and air-dries without any operator assistance whatsoever. Think of it as your new employee that human resources doesn’t have to fill out any papers for! Did we mention this employee never eats or sleeps? It is just a cleaning, rinsing and drying machine… literally!
The Autosonic Q1 will drastically reduce manual hand cleaning labor costs by up to 80% and “hands-on” ultrasonic cleaning costs by 15%. The Q1 delivers a proven automatic workstation that enhances the workflow and provides manufacturers with a piece of equipment that dramatically increases production and profitability.
Unfortunately, this machine isn’t equipped with “Siri” and it cannot talk to you and tell you the status of a cleaning cycle. But if you want to check the status of your current wash, it is as simple as reading a traffic light.
There actually is a green, yellow and red light that lights up allowing you quickly detect what stage the product is in. Along with high precision ultrasonic cleaning, the blow-off nozzles inside the Q1 remove excess moisture to speed the drying process.
