In the 1980’s, the U.S. government began to crack down on un-safe industrial cleaning chemicals, and created the need for new, safer, greener, water-based cleaning solutions: one of the key alternatives being ultrasonic cleaning technology.
As government regulations on toxic chemicals used in the workforce were tightened, industrial companies were frantically searching for newer and safer ways to clean their dirty, oily, and contaminated parts.
Today, it is more important than ever to maintain and achieve the highest quality levels of precision cleaning in many different industries due to constantly changing requirements.
There are hundreds of industries that use ultrasound as their first choice for safe and effective cleaning. Currently, ultrasound is the premier cleaning technology for the automotive, marine, pharmaceutical, aerospace, musical instrument, firearm, disaster restoration and other industries requiring absolute precision cleaning.
Other methods of aqueous-based industrial cleaning can use a lot of water, which goes directly down the drain or has to be collected and disposed of properly depending on the toxic levels. Water waste can come from the manufacturing process, scrubbers, mops, tanks and more. There are several technologies that recycle water but these systems can be costly especially for smaller operations. Despite the effort and resources, none of them have been nearly as effective as ultrasound.
