Ultrasonic energy is introduced into the body of water via transducers, channelling vibrations into a tank through metal blocks. The vibration of the metal tank means the tank effectively emits ultrasonic energy into the body of water. This is the ultrasonic energy which produces the cleaning effect.
Ultrasonic Cavitation: The cleaning effect
The imploding bubbles in the water rapidly create high temperatures and pressures in a tiny space. When the implosions come into contact with the submerged item, the cavitation bubbles act like microscopic scrubbing brushes all over the cleaning tank, removing dirt without necessarily requiring chemicals. The action is miniscule so that it provides a highly effective but gentle clean, avoiding the damage that can be caused when scrubbing items by hand.
