MAXIMUM CLEANLINESS IN A SHORTER TIME!
Compared to mechanical cleaning, ultrasonic cleaning allows us to achieve maximum cleanliness of washed surfaces in a short time. At the same time, it is a non-invasive method and does not damage fragile or complicated mechanisms. Because of its advantages, ultrasonic cleaning is used in very many areas. This method is utilised in industry, medicine, automotive repairs and elsewhere. It can be safely applied in the cleaning of vintage and sports engines, as it perfectly handles stubborn impurities such as from oils or greases. By choosing ultrasonic cleaning of engines, you can be sure that their sensitive components will not be damaged.
When performing car engine rebuilds, we offer ultrasonic cleaning of the engine components, such as the heads or blocks. Thanks to this, we can precisely determine the technical condition of the repaired parts and other components. Our company provides professional services for industrial engine cleaning.
What impurities can we remove by ultrasound?
To properly assess the wear or damage to the engine and other car parts, it is required to properly clean any impurities off their surfaces. For this purpose, we use ultrasound to not only remove the surface layer of dirt, but also any rust. Thanks to ultrasonic cleaning, we can remove such impurities as:
- cooling agents,
- filings and others.
What is the ultrasonic cleaning process?
We perform ultrasonic cleaning using an Ultron ultrasonic cleaner made to order and adjusted to the needs of our plant. Variable frequency high-pressure waves emitted by a pressure washer cause the cavitation process. The resulting steam bubbles break off impurities and rust from the surfaces of washed parts. Compared to traditional cleaning methods, such as manual or spray washing, an ultrasonic cleaner significantly reduces the cleaning time of car parts, such as heads. The cavitation process generated by ultrasound has an intense impact on the surfaces, but does not damage the cleaned components and parts.
We offer ultrasonic cleaning of machine parts and components in the following dimensions: maximum weights of 200 kg, lengths 1300 cm, widths 700 cm and heights 500 cm.
Advantages of ultrasonic cleaning
Ultrasonic cleaning, also known as industrial cleaning, is much faster and thorough than conventional cleaning methods. The ultrasonic cleaning process uses the properties of high-frequency sound waves that are inaudible to the human ear. Although they cannot be heard, they generate vibrations that penetrate the cleaned material to effectively remove all impurities from it. Ultrasonic cleaning is completely safe for both the surfaces being cleaned and the people in the vicinity.
The great advantage of ultrasonic cleaning is the even cleaning and degreasing of small parts and complex components, even in hard-to-reach places. This type of cleaning does not require very high temperatures, and therefore reduces electricity consumption. We achieve excellent cleaning effects at a temperature of approx. 50⁰C. Other advantages of ultrasonic cleaning include:
- very low concentration of etching agent (approx. 5-7%),
- several times shorter treatment time: cleaning with the traditional method takes approx. 2 hours, while ultrasound cleaning is complete in approx. 30 minutes,
- achieving a smooth and homogeneous surface,
- more thorough degreasing of small parts, e.g. before coating,
- automation of the cleaning process – ultrasonic cleaning does not require a technician to be present at all times,
- no harmful dust, which occurs during shot blasting, for example.
Ultrasonic cleaning is a reliable method for cleaning many sensitive components. By using this method, we save not only time, but also energy, water and cleaning agents, so the process is beneficial from both the ecological and economic point of view.
