What if musical instrument cleaning took less than half the time you used to? What if you didn’t need to use dangerous chemicals anymore to dissolve grime and gunk?
Thanks to ultrasonic cleaning technology, disaster restoration and contents cleaning are now easier and more effective than ever.
With the purchase and setup of an ultrasonic cleaning system for your contents restoration business, it’s possible to eliminate 70% of your contents cleaning that you used to do by hand. Overall, ultrasonic cleaning dramatically increases your process efficiency, gets better contents cleaning results, and lowers costs to the insurance industry.
In a previous article, we discussed the different types of contaminants that can be removed by various ultrasonic cleaning solutions. In this article, we’ll talk about the different types of materials that can be cleaned using these same solutions in our ultrasonic cleaners, and why choosing one over another may better suit our needs.
Just as with contaminants, there may be more than one type of ultrasonic cleaning solution that may work with a particular material; final selection then will be based on the type of contaminant to be removed, as well as the relative speed or aggression with which we’d like the article cleaned. Even the finish of the part may affect our decision.
Aerospace parts present unique difficulties for cleaning. Not only do they get covered with difficult-to-remove carbon buildup and grime, but many parts also present intricate surfaces as well as delicate components. All of these factors together make aerospace parts particularly challenging when it comes to cleaning them thoroughly without damaging them. Ultrasonic cleaning to the rescue. [Read more…]
Ultrasonic waves have many incredible applications across a wide variety of industries, ranging from medical science to manufacturing. Not least among these is ultrasonic cleaning, which uses ultrasonic sound waves traveling through liquid to produce cavitation bubbles that clean more thoroughly than solvents and scrubbing alone.
Ultrasonic waves can’t be heard by humans, though some animals, such as bats, can hear them. Their effects on materials and their abilities may look like magic, but they’re pure science. Unlike normal ways of making sound, which often involve striking a surface, ultrasound is made using electrical equipment that vibrates with an extremely high frequency. Crystals of materials such as quartz vibrate very fast when electricity is passed through them—an effect called “piezoelectricity.” As they vibrate, they manipulate the air around them and the fluids they come in contact with, producing ultrasound waves. Devices that produce ultrasound waves using piezoelectricity are known as piezoelectric transducers. [Read more…]
