Ultrasonic tanks for cleaning and surface finishing applications.

Ultrasound cleaning is a state of the art technology that involves high power cavitation diffusion in a liquid solution. As of today, it represents the only means to satisfy some the most challenging and complex requests for the cleaning of mechanical parts, objects with a complex shape, professional, medical and industrial tools. Combine our ultrasound tanks with an adequate washing temperature and detergent and your parts and objects will shine like new.

The ultrasound power is generated by a group of piezoelectric transducers that, powered by an electrical current and set to a certain frequency, produce a mechanical vibrational energy. This is how millions of microscopic bubbles form and implode because of the pressure variations generated by the ultrasounds. This process non only cleans all kinds of surfaces, but also the smallest cavities and holes of complex objects.

Power and frequency are chosen based on the material of the items and the size of the ultrasound tank: small and delicate materials like eyewear, jewellery, gold and medical equipment will generally be treated at a low power and high frequency, whereas resistant and bigger mechanical parts will require higher power and lower frequencies. Typically, the frequencies used in these kinds of applications vary from 22KHz to 60KHz.

Our ultrasound washing system, resistant and innovative, is equipped with a generator of our own production which guarantees high performance by using specific microprocessors for transducer control, allowing for operational parameter setting and additional functions. Upon request specific beespoke functions can be added.

We also provide a material washing service on our premises.

THE CONTROL PANEL

The T-25 tank control panel includes:

  • Knob for power variation (and other parameters when the system is in programming mode):
  • START-STOP button for ultrasounds; In frequency setup mode it decreases the value.
  • TIMER SETTINGS: button for TIMER activation and automatic stop; in frequency setup mode it increases the value.
  • HOME button to access parameter setting mode, including TEMPERATURE regulation.
  • LCD display (backlit, with white digits on blue background) for viewing operating parameters.
