How does an ultrasonic cleaner work

A Large Ultrasonic Cleaner like the ones from www.hilsonic.co.uk/ is a piece of equipment that uses sound waves to remove grease, grime and dirt from a number of different items. These could be items as small as intricate pieces of jewellery right through to large items like vehicles. The use of ultrasonic waves allows delicate materials to be cleaned that otherwise would be susceptible to abrasive cleaners or water. The high frequency of sound waves allows for it to pass into small intricate areas of the items that are being cleaned.

There are a number of different designs of these kinds of cleaners with some using compressed air, plates and even suction cups to direct the ultrasonic sound waves in the cleaning tank. There are also options that have fine nozzles that can direct the waves to specific areas of the item.

The devices offer a cost-effective way to clean numerous different items and as mentioned above one of the other benefits is that items that are affected by water or harsh cleaning products can still be effectively cleaned using sound waves instead. This has been a practice that is used on fine jewellery items and precious stones as well as for larger industrial uses. The size of the cleaner that you need will very much depend on the types of items you need to be cleaned as well as your financial budget.
