Ultrasonic Cleaning Optimizes Surface Treatment Processes

Berrings with plated surfacing

Surface treatment applications require a clean substrate that is entirely free of contaminants. Not only does this help to provide a lasting metal finish, it also promotes product uniformity.

Ultrasonics Are Effective For Many Surface Treatments

Proper cleaning and rinsing promote the best results in plating and surface finishing processes such as:

  • Electroplating
  • Anodizing
  • Pickling
  • Passivation
  • Etching
  • Stripping

Ultrasonic cleaning uses the power of high-frequency sound for the complete and efficient removal of contaminants. Ultrasonic cleaning has proven very effective in ensuring that part surfaces are absolutely clean, due in part to the ability of ultrasonics to thoroughly clean the complete wetted surface area, including blind holes and crevices. Cavitation is the key to the effectiveness of ultrasonic cleaning, providing the power to blast dirt from surfaces. It has the added benefit of reaching every wetted surface of the object to be cleaned, including intricate crevices.

Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics for Surface Treatment Processes

Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics, a division of Cleaning Technologies Group, has developed ultrasonic cleaning systems that use multiple frequency ultrasonic generators and advanced waveform ultrasonic generators. These innovative ultrasonic cleaning technologies are extremely effective for removing sub-micron particles before surface treatment applications.

Immersible Transducers (Submersible) - ultrasonic transducer elements sealed in a liquid-tight housing, offering an alternative to transducer elements that are permanently bonded to the side or bottom of a cleaning tank.

multiSONIKⓇ Generators - advanced, digital ultrasonic generators that provide the ability to select and program single or multiple frequencies in a single process tank.
