At the heart of Ultrasonic Cleaning is the bubble; lots of fast-moving, incredibly powerful and efficient, microscopic bubbles. We use specially designed cleaning tanks equipped with submerged transducers (speakers, if you will) that create sound waves in heated water. The sound waves agitate the water and cause a phenomenon known as “cavitation” where rapid changes of pressure form small vapor-filled cavities, or bubbles.
Since bubbles created through cavitation are just empty space, there’s nothing to keep them open. As a result, these bubbles collapse, or implode millions of times per second. This constant implosion produces tremendous vacuum energy in the form of heat and pressure. It’s this combination of heat and pressure that gives Ultrasonics its tremendous cleaning capability and power.
