Jewellery, antique coins, surgical equipment … many items which have lots of small nooks and crannies are tough to clean with the traditional methods. For thorough, efficient and gentle cleaning, nothing beats an ultrasonic cleaner. An ultrasonic cleaner is an essential commercial appliance for cleaning small and potentially fragile items – right down to the microscopic level. Like our vacuum drying ovens and other industrial equipment, these cleaners are trusted by businesses worldwide.
Thorough cleaning thanks to ultrasonic pulses
Ultrasonic cleaners use high-powered ultrasonic waves to remove dirt, oxidation and contaminations from the surface of an item with intense vibrations. These vibrations are so small, however, that the item being cleaned remains completely unharmed; like a high-tech electronic toothbrush, these cleaners simply pulse the dirt and grime away, simply leaving a shiny, clean surface. This is perfect for items such as antique jewellery, medals and coins that are vulnerable to more abrasive cleaning methods and have engravings or grooves which are tricky to clean. The ultrasonic cleaner provides such excellent results that it is also perfect for decontaminating sterile tools such as dental and surgical equipment, or even laboratory instruments. Fine mechanical components such as watch parts, electronics equipment, lenses and gun parts also benefit from the efficient and gentle ultrasonic cleaning provided by these high-end cleaners from trusted brand Ulsonix. Even restaurants can benefit from adding an ultrasonic cleaner to their array of professional catering equipment; the sonic pulses are excellent for cleaning mixer blades, piping bag nozzles, and all the other fiddly bits and pieces you use in your everyday catering operations. Where cleaning brushes, dishwashers and even rotary tool attachments cannot reach, one of these cleaners can power away all the impurities and microbes, leaving a hygienic finish.

Ultrasonic Jewellery Cleaner
It is essential that you keep your jewellery cleaned and well maintained. However, cleaning jewellery can be challenging. The last thing you want is to damage your valuable jewellery while cleaning. This is where the ultrasonic jewellery cleaner comes in handy.
An ultrasonic cleaner is a requisite if you treasure a jewellery collection. It keeps your items pristine and sparkling while increasing their lifespan. The machine uses ultrasound waves and aqueous media to eliminate contaminators and foreign particles, such as dirt and oil. The pressure waves create microbubbles that remove dirt even in hard to reach places. While the cleaner does an exemplary job, it is not suitable for all items. It should only be used to clean jewellery that can be easily cleaned. This exempts absorbent materials.
It is worth noting that the cleaner only removes ordinary dirt such as grease. This means that it can’t get rid of spores and viruses. You, therefore, need to sterilize your items after the ultrasonic cleaning. Some of the things you can clean using ultrasonic cleaner are gemstones such as ruby, diamonds, and precious metals, including gold and silver.
Ultrasonic Cleaner for Carburetors
Carburettors are relatively small and complex to clean. The assembling and disassembling and numerous inaccessible areas makes Cleaning a carburettor is a difficult task. The orifices of carburettor accumulate gas vanish, making the carburettor challenging to clean. The addition of ethanol in most gasoline has only made the matter worse. Luckily, the ultrasonic can cleaner can remove tenacious stains, including carbon and vanish.
Ultrasonic carburettor cleaner injects ultrasonic waves into the cleaning solution. The waves separate molecules of the cleaning solution resulting in vacuum cavities that contain ultra-high-energy that acts as microscopic scrubbers. Ultrasonic carburettor cleaners produce high frequencies waves that penetrate crevices, apertures, sensitive and delicate parts of the carburettor.
Gazillion of vacuum bubbles implodes when they come in contact with an ultrasonic cleaning solution. This scenario is known as cavitation. The bubbles are created by ultrasonic transducers bonded to ultrasonic cleaning tanks. The cleaners operate between frequencies of 37 to 42 kHz, depending on the model.
Most motor owners endear these machines because they are fast and thorough. The bubbles blast contaminates safely and quickly when they explode. The best part is that bubbles are so small that they can penetrate crevices and cracks that are not easy to reach with aerosol sprays and convectional washers. Once you initiate the cleaning, the machine will get the work done in less than half an hour. The best part is that this method is environmentally friendly. Since the ultrasonic solution is biodegradable, you do not have to worry about disposal methods.
Note that ultrasonic solutions come in a wide variety of sizes. When selecting a suitable cleaner, select the ideal size and type. An ideal cleaner should have a heater to warm the solution to the recommended temperature. Similarly, a machine that has a timer is much better because it allows you to do other tasks as you do the cleaning.
Ultrasonic Glasses Cleaner
Like other ultrasonic cleaners, glass cleaners work by generating millions of small bubbles. The bubbles create millions of cavitation when they come into contact with the glass surface, dislodging all the dirt that you need to clean. The bubbles form vacuum pockets in the small spaces removing even the smallest dirt particles. Ultimately, your eyeglasses will come out looking clean and new.
So why do you need ultrasonic glass cleaner? The ultrasonic cleaner will do a better job than you.
If you do the cleaning manually, a significant amount of dirt will be left in the crannies and hooks. When looking for a suitable ultrasonic glass cleaner, ensure you choose a machine that has the largest tank capacity. The benefits of purchasing a cleaner with huge tank capacity are that you can clean bigger items and multiple items at once.
Ultrasonic Contact Lens Cleaner
An ultrasonic cleaner is the best device for cleaning contact lenses. Without this cleaner, you will need to immerse your contact lenses in a multipurpose solution and rub the lenses manually. This increases the risk of damage. While using the device, you only need to dip the lenses in the tank and fill with a multipurpose solution. Turn on the device after closing the rid. An ultrasonic cleaner is a suitable choice if the contact lenses have been exposed to air, gas, and fumes. It can also be used to remove contaminants such as mascara. Most importantly, it keeps your contact lenses safe.
How Does an Ultrasonic Cleaner Work?
An ultrasonic cleaner uses high-frequency sound waves to clean the surface of immersed items. The sound waves work at a high frequency, typically 4 kHz, causing cavitation of bubbles. The cavities form a bubble in the liquid solution. The bubbles implode with great force dislodging contaminants on the surfaces of the items. Ideally, ultrasonic cleaner works by cleaning surfaces using tiny bubble implosion. Some of the pollutants removed include grease, oil, and dust.
What Fluid Do You Use in an Ultrasonic Cleaner?
There is a wide variety of ultrasonic cleaning solutions. This ranges from alkaline, acidic, enzymatic, neutral, and mildly alkaline to ionized water. The Acidic solutions have PH less than 5, while alkaline solutions have a PH more than 10. An acidic solution is used when cleaning rust and scales from ferrous metals, while an alkaline fluid is suitable for steel and zinc, cast iron, and brass. If you want to clean plastic ad rubbers, consider using neutral solutions and deionized water.
What Not to Put in an Ultrasonic Cleaner
Some liquid solutions will generally not work with an ultrasonic cleaner. Other items can damage the device. When doing your cleaning work, never uses gasoline, alcohol, and other flammable liquids. Similarly, chlorine bleach is not an ideal solution since it does not create suitable cavitation. Similarly, do not use your ultrasonic cleaner to clean opal, emerald, turquoise, and tanzanite.
