Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaning Tanks
Currently, ultrasonic cleaning tanks play an important role in cleaning many industrial parts, it is mainly because of their great cleaning effect & environmental protection feature.
Ultrasonic cleaning tanks are capable of cleaning items of different shapes & sizes.
Even if the items’ share is complex, and their cleanliness requirement is high, ultrasonic cleaning machines can also easily handle it.
For example, ultrasonic tanks can clean:
- Anilox Rollers
- Automobile Engine Parts
- Camera Parts
- Medical Syringes
- Milling Cutters
- Oil Nozzles & Pumps
- Piston Rings
- Optical Lenses
- Precision Bearing Parts
- Saw Blades
- Watch Parts
Ultrasonic tanks are also suitable for cleaning:
- Ceramic Wafers
- Electrode Leads
- Magnetic Components
- PCB Boards
- Precision Parts in Kinescopes
- Semiconductor Wafers
- Silicon Wafers
- Solder Pads
Regarding the ultrasonic tank’s working principle, we have to mention the ultrasonic generator & transducer.
The ultrasonic generator emits a high-frequency oscillation signal, the transducer converts this signal into high-frequency mechanical oscillation.
The mechanical oscillation spreads to the cleaning liquid, then the ultrasonic wave radiates into the cleaning liquid.
Due to the ultrasonic wave’s radiation, the cleaning fluid flows, generating tens of thousands of tiny bubbles.
As the ultrasonic waves continuously radiate, those tiny bubbles grow bigger & bigger.
This process is the “cavitation” process.
After these bubbles’ 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, peeling off the surface & the gap’s dirt quickly.
Ultrasonic cleaning equipment generates cavitation, acceleration, and direct flow effect in the liquid, thus it disperses, emulsifiers, and peels off the dirt layer.
At present, the ultrasonic tanks on the market mainly rely on cavitation & direct flow.
Factors to Consider in Purchasing
In order to purchase a suitable ultrasonic cleaner for industrial use, you must pay special attention to the following points.
You should choose different ultrasonic frequencies for different industrial parts.
For example, in industries such as hardware, machinery, automobile & motorcycle, compressors, or heavily contaminated parts, 20KHz industrial ultrasonic parts cleaner is a good choice;
40KHz industrial ultrasonic bath is suitable for optics, optoelectronics, circuit boards, and general laboratory utensils;
For microelectronic components, integrated circuit chips, silicon wafers, and films, etc., we suggest you use 80KHz or higher frequency large industrial ultrasonic cleaner, it can remove micron & sub-micron dirt without damaging the items.
Generally speaking, the standard ultrasonic tanks have set the capacity to match the ultrasonic power (0.3-0.5W/cm3);
High power ultrasonic cleaners are popular in hardware, machinery, and other industries, cleaning heavily contaminated industrial parts (0.5-1W/cm3).
Choosing the right cleaning time (general 10mins-20mins) ensures a better cleaning effect.
If the cleaning time is too long, it will cause cavitation erosion on the surface, finally affect the surface finish;
If the cleaning time is too short, the cleaning effect is not up to 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 form;
When cleaning objects with burrs, the cleaning temperature is generally below 15°C.
Please make sure your industrial ultrasonic cleaning system can realize constant temperature control, cleaning under constant temperature will not damage the objects.
Traditional cleaning solutions (mediums) include water-based solutions, alcohol, gasoline, etc.
Modern ultrasonic cleaning agents include a variety of detergents, wetting agents, and some other reaction ingredients mixture.
Many excellent cleaning agents are available on the market.
To achieve a great cleaning effect, and to avoid reacting between fluid and object, choosing the right cleaning agent is crucial.

Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaning Tanks Ultimate FAQ Guide
What is an ultrasonic cleaner?
Ultrasonic tank is an eco-friendly cleaning equipment, it adopts cavitation effect for industrial, hardware, and household cleaning, so we also call ultrasonic cleaning “cavitation cleaning”.
When the ultrasonic energy is high enough, the “cavitation” phenomenon will occur, it occurs when the ultrasonic waves spread in the cleaning liquid.
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 force impacts the surface dirt, thus realizing precise cleaning.
How do ultrasonic cleaners work?
Ultrasonic cleaning converts the ultrasonic current signal into vibration energy, then cleans objects by vibrating the cleaning liquid.
It is an effective & efficient cleaning process, people in this niche also call it cavitation cleaning.
The ultrasonic generator sends out a high-frequency signal current first, then the signal current passes to the transducer, and the transducer’s piezoelectric ceramic converts it into vibration energy.
For example, the current frequency is 27.8KHz, excluding the energy loss, and the vibration wave generated by the piezoelectric ceramic is as high as 27,800 times/s.
Such a dense vibration wave transmits to the cleaning medium in the tank, it forms a high-pressure sound field & generates high-frequency oscillation in the cleaning liquid.
Countless tiny bubbles emerge during the oscillation process, these bubbles spread out rapidly along with the oscillating wave.
During the spreading process, as these bubbles are getting farther away from the sound field, the sound pressure around them becomes smaller.
When the sound pressure decreases to a certain level, these bubbles instantly become larger & burst, generating a shock wave in the cleaning medium, the shock wave impacts the surface dirt, peels the dirt off.
Do ultrasonic cleaners really work?
Whether the ultrasonic cleaners really work depends on what items you are cleaning.
As long as your item is suitable for ultrasonic cleaning, the cleaning effect is very good.
If you are not sure whether your item is suitable for ultrasonic cleaning or not, please get in touch with us, and we will reply to you within 1h.

Will ultrasonic cleaning remove rust?
Can ultrasonic cleaning remove rust? Absolutely yes.
Because rust spots & oxide scales are also substances, they adhere to the object’s surface, there are gaps between them & object’s surface, and they can fall off.
But because of its strong adhesion & hidden location, the general cleaning process doesn’t work.
Ultrasonic cleaning adopts the cavitation effect to generate tiny bubbles into the gap, the tiny bubbles burst at a certain time, peeling off the rusty spots & scale with the shock wave.
It can effectively remove rust in the hidden place, the cleaning effect is excellent.
Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaning Tanks
What is industrial ultrasonic cleaner?

For ultrasonic cleaners, tank capacity is a very important parameter.
The 50L capacity ultrasonic cleaning machine is an entry-level industrial ultrasonic cleaning machine, it is usually a single tank cleaner.
Heated ultrasonic cleaner
Why do ultrasonic cleaners need to be heated?
In fact, the reason is very simple. Just like washing dishes, using hot water to clean oily dirt is better than cold water.
- Cavitation Intensity
When the cleaning liquid temperature increases, it is beneficial to stimulate the cavitation effect, but the temperature should not be too high, otherwise, the cavitation intensity weakens.
- Cleaning Agent Activity
The activity of each cleaning agent is related to the temperature. Adjusting the temperature to maximize the cleaning agent’s activity, obviously promotes the cleaning effect.
If you clean medical & surgical instruments, the increase in temperature will harden the protein in the blood, making it more difficult to clean;
When cleaning printed circuit boards, heat may also deform & damage the PCB board.
Therefore, when you buy an ultrasonic cleaning machine, you must determine whether to choose a heated ultrasonic cleaner according to your own requirements.
In addition, some special industries use flammable & explosive cleaning agents such as alcohol & trichloroethylene, please don’t enable the heating function.
Heavy duty ultrasonic cleaner
In industrial production, there are many large workpieces that need to be cleaned.
Some workpieces may weigh as much as 1 ton, heavy duty ultrasonic cleaner can play a role at this time.
When using a heavy duty ultrasonic cleaner to wash large workpieces, an overhead bridge crane is essential for loading & unloading, and a working platform is also essential around the heavy duty ultrasonic cleaner.
