You have made the decision for your business to purchase an ultrasonic cleaner. Now that you have the basics of the machine that you want to buy it is time to take a look at some of the options that you can add to your machine. While choosing all of the available options will surely give you a very nice cleaner, they may not all be necessary for you to have or use. Read on to find out which will work best for your applications.
A Variable Temperature Heater
Heating is a natural part of the process that is used in an ultrasonic cleaner. For some applications you may need to get even warmer than cavitation can go. Adding a heater to your ultrasonic cleaner is an option. Heaters are particularly useful when you are dealing with oils, engine or machine coolants and other similar types of grime.
Think of when you would use hot or warm water in your laundry washing machine and you’ll get the idea. Most heaters do have an upper temperature limit. That is because cavitation can lose effectiveness at temperatures higher than this level.
Variable or Sweeping Frequencies
Cavitation is created by vibrations. Those vibrations are created by a transducer in your ultrasonic cleaner. There are times when you may wish to change the frequency at which your machine operates or even have it slowly ramp up and down a set range of frequencies.
Sometimes small dead zones can be created within your cleaning solution. These are places where there is little or no cavitation due to several different factors. A way to ensure a more uniform clean is by using sweep mode. Sweep mode will vary the frequency up and down slowly around a particular value. This will provide you with a guarantee of more uniform cleaning. Sweep modes can also be useful for electronics that can be damaged by remaining certain frequencies and creating harmonic vibrations within a circuit board.
Solution Degas Mode
Liquids like to have things dissolved into them. Your ultrasonic cleaning solution is no exception. As you pour the clean solution into your tank, gasses can be dissolved into the solution. There is nothing you can do about this; it is just a simple fact of chemistry. You can remove these dissolved gasses with a degas mode on your ultrasonic cleaner.
Think about boiling water in a pot. Right before the pot begins a rolling boil you will see tiny bubbles forming along the sides of the pot. This is the water in the pot being degassed. Ultrasonic cleaners can do the same thing with vibrations. Set your solution to degas mode five or ten minutes before starting the clean cycle and you will get rid of all those pesky bubbles in the solution.
