What is Immersion/Ultrasonic Cleaning?
Ultrasonic cleaning is a water and detergent-based process commonly used in metal parts manufacturing. The part is immersed entirely in the solution offering great cleaning for parts large and small including parts with hard-to-reach areas such as blind holes and honeycomb.
What are the benefits of Immersion/Ultrasonic Cleaning?
How Does it Work?
The process involves an aqueous (water-based) bath being agitated by ultrasonic energy. This energy along with the characteristics of Brulin brand detergents creates cavitation along the edge of the part. The imploding of these cavities of air creates a scrubbing effect and loosens particulates, oils, waxes, etc.
Additional techniques can be used alongside ultrasonics. These include mechanical stroke, turbulation, agitation, and rotation.
