Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaning Tanks
Currently, ultrasonic cleaning tanks are often used in some industrial products’ production processes, it is mainly because of the ultrasonic tanks’ great cleaning effect & environmental protection feature.
Ultrasonic cleaning tanks can be used to clean objects of various shapes & sizes.
For objects with complex shapes & high cleanliness requirements, ultrasonic cleaning machines can also be perfectly fit.
For example, ultrasonic tanks can be used to clean watch parts, camera parts, oil nozzles & pumps, automobile engine parts, precision bearing parts, gears, piston rings, milling cutters, saw blades, gems, medical syringes, anilox rollers, and various optical lenses;
Ultrasonic tanks are also suitable for cleaning PCB boards, semiconductor wafers, precision parts in kinescopes, magnetic components, silicon wafers, ceramic wafers, solder pads, electrode leads, and other electronic products.
Talking about the ultrasonic tanks’ working principle, we have to mention the ultrasonic generator & transducer.
The ultrasonic generator emits a high-frequency oscillation signal, such signal is converted into high-frequency mechanical oscillation by the transducer, the mechanical oscillation spreads to the medium (the cleaning liquid), so the ultrasonic wave radiates in the cleaning liquid.
Due to the ultrasonic waves’ radiation, the cleaning fluid flows, tens of thousands of tiny bubbles are generated.
As the ultrasonic waves continuously radiate, those tiny bubbles grow bigger & bigger.
This process is called the “cavitation” effect, in this process, after the bubble’s internal pressure is up to more than 101.325Mpa, a series of small “explosions” occur.
This kind of small explosion continuously impacts the object’s surface, causing the surface & the gap’s dirt to quickly peel off.
Ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses ultrasonic cavitation, acceleration, and direct flow in the liquid to clean the dirt, so that the dirt layer is dispersed, emulsified, and peeled off.
At present, the ultrasonic tanks on the market mainly rely on cavitation & direct flow.
In order to purchase a suitable industrial ultrasonic cleaning equipment, you must pay special attention to the following points.
For different objects, you should choose different ultrasonic frequencies.
For example, in industries such as hardware, machinery, automobile & motorcycle, compressors, or heavily contaminated objects, 20KHz industrial ultrasonic cleaning equipment is often used;
For optics, optoelectronics, circuit boards, and general laboratory utensils, 40KHz industrial ultrasonic cleaning equipment is mostly used;
Computer microelectronic components, integrated circuit chips, silicon wafers, and films, etc., mostly use 80KHz or higher frequency industrial ultrasonic cleaning equipment, it can remove micron & sub-micron dirt without damaging the objects.
Generally speaking, the standard ultrasonic tanks have set the capacity to match the ultrasonic power (power per unit area is 0.3-0.5W/cm3);
High-power ultrasonic tanks are mostly used in hardware, machinery, and other industries to clean heavily contaminated objects (power per unit area 0.5-1W/cm3).
There is some difference in ultrasonic cleaning time for different objects.
Choosing the right time (general cleaner time is 10 mins-20 mins) is helpful for a better cleaning effect.
If the ultrasonic cleaner time is too long, it will cause cavitation erosion on the object’s surface, finally affect the surface finish;
If the ultrasonic cleaner time is too short, the cleaning effect will not meet the standard.
Since each object’s physical characteristics are different, we should choose a different temperature when cleaning.
For example, when cleaning grease dirt, set the cleaning temperature above 50°C;
When cleaning aluminum parts, set the cleaning temperature to about 40°C, if the temperature is too high, oxidation spots will be formed;
When cleaning objects with burrs, the cleaning temperature is generally below 15°C.
Ensure that the ultrasonic cleaning equipment you purchase can realize constant temperature control, then the cleaning can be carried out under constant temperature, the objects will not be damaged.
- Cleaning liquid
Conventional cleaning solutions (mediums) include water-based solutions, alcohol, gasoline, etc.
Modern ultrasonic tanks contain a mixture of various detergents, wetting agents, and other reactive ingredients.
There are many excellent cleaning agents available on the market.
To achieve a proper cleaning effect, and to avoid the (cleaning fluid) reacting with the object, choosing the right cleaning agent is crucial.

Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaning Tanks Ultimate FAQ Guide
What is an ultrasonic cleaner?
Ultrasonic tank is an environmentally friendly cleaning equipment, it has a wide range of applications for industrial, hardware, and household cleaning.
This kind of cleaning equipment uses the cavitation effect, such effect is generated when ultrasonic waves spread in the cleaning liquid.
When the ultrasonic energy is high enough, the “ultrasonic cavitation” phenomenon will occur.
The tiny bubbles (cavitation nuclei) in the liquid vibrate, grow & continuously accumulate the sound field’s energy.
When the energy reaches a certain level, the cavitation bubbles collapse & burst sharply.
The burst’s force impacts the dirt on the object’s surface, the purpose of precise cleaning is realized.
How do ultrasonic cleaners work?
Ultrasonic cleaning actually converts the ultrasonic current signal into vibration energy, then achieves the purpose of cleaning by vibrating the cleaning liquid, it is an effective & practical cleaning method, also called cavitation cleaning.
The ultrasonic generator sends out a high-frequency signal current, after the current is transmitted to the transducer, it is converted into vibration energy by the transducer’s piezoelectric ceramic.
Assuming that the current frequency is 27.8KHz, excluding the energy loss, the vibration wave generated by the piezoelectric ceramic is as high as 27,800 times/s.
Such a dense vibration wave is transmitted to the cleaning medium in the tank, it will inevitably form a high-pressure sound field & generate high-frequency oscillation in the cleaning liquid.
Countless tiny bubbles will be produced during the oscillation process, the bubbles will spread out rapidly along with the oscillating wave.
During the spreading process, as the bubble is getting farther away from the sound field, the sound pressure around the bubble becomes smaller.
When the sound pressure around the bubble decreases to a certain level, the bubble will instantly become larger & burst, then a shock wave is generated in the cleaning medium, the shock wave will impact the object’s surface, thus achieve the cleaning effect.
Do ultrasonic cleaners really work?
Whether the ultrasonic cleaners really work depends on what items you are cleaning.
As long as it is suitable for ultrasonic cleaning, the effect is very good.

Will ultrasonic cleaning remove rust?
Can ultrasonic cleaning remove rust?
Because rust spots & oxide scales are substances that adhere to the object’s surface, there are gaps between it & the object’s surface, they can fall off.
But because of its strong adhesion & hidden location, the general cleaning method has limited effect.
Ultrasonic uses the cavitation effect to burst the bubbles into the gap, peel off the rusty spots & scale with the shock wave at the time of burst.
It can effectively remove the dirt in the hidden place, the cleaning effect is excellent.
Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaning Tanks
What is industrial ultrasonic cleaner?
According to different application fields, ultrasonic wash tanks can be divided into industrial sonic cleaners & household ultrasonic cleaners.
Industrial sonic cleaners generally clean large industrial products, while home ultrasonic cleaners have a small capacity, they are used to clean small items.
The working principles of both are the same.
Ultrasonic cleaning is recognized internationally as the most efficient & effective cleaning method.
Its cleaning efficiency reaches more than 98%, its cleanliness also reaches the highest level.
This is why all industries that require high cleanliness, such as vacuum coating, optical equipment, medical equipment & other industries choose ultrasonic cleaning.
The industrial ultrasonic cleaning equipment’s advantages are:
- Thoroughly clean the workpiece’s dead corners;
- Batch cleaning of various workpieces;
- Multifunctional cleaning, degreasing, rust removing, dust removing, wax removing, chip removing;
- Reduce pollution;
- Reduce labor;
- Shorten the working time;
- Environmental protection & energy saving.
Ultrasonic tank is equipped with a circulation filter system, realize the cleaning solvents’ repeated use, thus saving water resources, reducing material costs, and protecting the environment.
Industrial ultrasonic cleaning equipment basis
The ultrasonic wave spreading in the liquid can clean the dirt on the object’s surface, the basis can be explained by the “cavitation” phenomenon.
When the sound wave’s pressure in the liquid reaches one atmospheric pressure, its power density is 0.35W/cm3.
At this time, the sound wave pressure can reach vacuum or negative pressure.
But in fact, there is no negative pressure, so a large force is generated in the liquid, which pulls the liquid molecules into cavitation nuclei, this cavitation nucleus is very close to a vacuum.
It explodes when the reverse ultrasonic pressure reaches its maximum, the strong impact caused by the explosion will knock down the dirt on the object’s surface.

Industrial ultrasonic cleaning solutions
Please consider the following 2 aspects when choosing ultrasonic cleaning solutions.
- The dirt’s nature;
- The cleaning solution’s surface tension, viscosity & vapor pressure.
Because these characteristics will affect the ultrasonic cavitation strength, high vapor pressure will reduce the ultrasonic cavitation strength;
And if the cleaning liquid’s surface has high tension & high viscosity, then cavitation is not easy to produce.
Therefore, ultrasonic cleaning solutions with high tension & high viscosity are not helpful.
Most of the ultrasonic cleaning tanks on the market are stamped or welded from stainless steel plates, it is not recommended to use strong acids & alkalis, they can easily corrode the tanks.
Otherwise, the ultrasonic cleaning equipment’s service life will be shortened.
If you have special needs, you can communicate with the manufacturer to replace the tank material or coat the protective layer.
