The Ultrasonic Cleaning Mechanism

Part of the Ultrasonic Technology book series (ULTE, volume 1)


The choice of equipment and detergent media for ultrasonic cleaning depends first and foremost on the type of contaminant. Since mechanical destruction of the contaminant film under the action of cavitation and acceleration of the process of chemical interaction between the washing liquid and contaminant under the action of acoustic streaming occur simultaneously in the sound field, it is convenient to classify all contaminants according to three basic criteria:
  1. 1.

    the ability to withstand the action of microimpact loading;

  2. 2.

    the bond strength with the surface to be cleaned;

  3. 3.

    the nature of the chemical interaction with the detergent.
