ULTRASONIC CLEANING

Ultrasonic cleaning employs high frequency sound waves in a solution or solvent. These sound waves cause microscopic gas bubbles to expand to their limit, creating a pressure wave when they collapse or implode.
This process is called cavitation and together with a solution or solvent it forces contamination from parts and instruments.
The operating frequency is an integral part of the cleaning process. The lower frequencies generate larger gaseous bubbles which, on collapsing, produce a much stronger shock wave.
At a higher frequency the microscopic bubbles will grow to a collapsible size more quickly, causing many more times the number of implosions per unit time.
The temperature of the cleaning liquid also has a significant impact on performance. Maximum cavitation intensity occurs at a temperature range of between 50°C - 60°C in aqueous solutions, with a decline in efficiency evident above this. Heating helps to degas as well as increase the chemical action of the liquid. An optimal combination of temperature and the gaseous condition of the liquid ensures the best cavitation and overall cleaning results.
Another important factor is the choice of liquid. Aqueous solutions are best for inorganic soils, however by adding a detergent to the liquid many light greases and oils can be removed. Solvents are best to remove heavy organic grease, oil or waxy soils.

Major factors which influence cleaning efficiency:

  • Size and shape of tank
  • Depth of the liquid in the tank
  • Amount of dissolved soil in the liquid
  • Trays or baskets used to contain parts
  • Number, size and shape of parts
  • The density and composition of the cleaning fluid
  • Type of liquid
  • The temperature of the liquid
  • The position of larger parts
  • The operating frequency

Commercial and industrial ultrasonic cleaners have become commonplace in many processes because they are cost-effective and durable. These systems in the main work completely trouble free for many years. They can however become less effective if transducers (the ultrasound generators) fail or, more likely, lose firm bonding to the underside of the bath. Bonding may be compromised by sustained use of higher than 60°C temperatures in heated systems. If that occurs the bath needs to be returned to the manufacturer for remedial work.

Note:
  • Efficiency of an ultrasonic cleaner may be tested at your premises by carrying out the aluminium foil test - Aluminium foil test
  • Ultrasonic cleaners which will be used with citric acid may be supplied in 316 grade stainless steel - ask



The FXP series of ultrasonic cleaners are designed for Medical, Dental, Laboratory and where all forms of contamination are lightly deposited.

All units incorporate Lateral Oscillation Technology for uniform cleaning results. The internal basket system allows the lid to seal the working solution avoiding evaporation and reducing ultrasonic acoustic levels.

The clear and easy design with compact and quiet operation make these products the market leaders.

PEARLS, AMBER AND OPALS ARE POROUS GEMS AND NOT SUITABLE FOR THE ULTRASONIC CLEANER.
THIS TYPE OF JEWELLERY SHOULD ONLY BE CLEANED USING A SOFT CLOTH WITH A MILD SOLUTION.

ULTRASONIC BENCHTOP CLEANERS

Unisonics Australia
Unisonics brand of ultrasonic cleaners for industrial, medical and commercial applications are made in Australia. They are of uniformly high quality, available with a range of features and in a range of sizes. We offer these at below recommended retail prices and within Australia our prices include shipping cost. These cleaners are very good value and additional shipping cost to overseas locations should not preclude their purchase - where 220/240VAC supplies @ 50Hz are available.
The manufacturer provides a one year warranty for parts and labour.
As a distributor we are able to sell these instruments below the recommended retail price - which you would pay when buying direct. Instruments are shipped to the end-user from Unisonics direct and Unisonics would deal with any (extremely rare) warranty issues.

The benchtop cleaners are compact, quiet, with an easy maintenance design and range in size from 0.8 litres to 60 litres capacity. All models of the FXP series have these features in common.

  • Construction: Pressed one piece stainless steel inner working vessel with clean rounded corners, white PVC jackets, aluminium base, stainless steel lid plus basket.
  • Transducers: Lead zirconate titanate piezoelectric discs, new style discs with captive leads.
  • Input: 240 volt, 50Hz, AC power supply.
  • Circuitry: All solid state transistorised driving modules, printed circuit board wiring.
  • Controls depending on model: On-off switch through to 99 minutes digital electronic timer or 30 minutes mechanical timer, thermostat controlled heater.
  • Lateral oscillation
  • The internal basket system allows the lid to seal off the working solution, avoiding evaporation and reducing ultrasonic noise levels.

For cleaning of petrol injectors the ultrasonic cleaners on this page suffice, however, for diesel injectors the EST range on page E14 is recommended.

The resin used to bond ultrasonic transducers suffers if heater is set above 60°C for lengthy periods; avoid those higher temperatures. The heater controllers run independently so a bath can be pre-heated before ultrasonic cleaning. The cleaner unit can therefore also be used us a waterbath - but only to about 60°C, otherwise the cement becomes less vibration resistant.

Models FXP14, FXP20 and FXP40 have an outlet drain tap.

All Unisonics cleaners have SS baskets and lids included.
Additional SS baskets may be purchased.

Ask about a more powerful tank option for the FXP range for use with acid based cleaning solutions, specifically citric acid.
