Ultrasonic Cleaning Equipment
JAYCO Cleaning Technologies partners with manufacturer Elma to combine German ultrasonic cleaning equipment with JAYCO’s advanced process knowledge, applications expertise and superior customer service. Suitable for a wide range of precision cleaning applications, ultrasonic cleaning is a critically effective technology.
Modular Ultrasonic Cleaning Systems
Designed for Precision and Ultra-Precision cleaning applications, the modular Xtra Line can be flexibly deployed and extended due to its modular system concept. From simple manual systems to standard modular automated lines and further to highly complex fully automated systems with multiple robot heads and system enclosures, the Xtra line concept can be adapted to meet any challenging parts cleaning application.
Why Ultrasonic Cleaning
Ultrasonic cleaning is one of the most modern processes today that particularly effectively and efficiently removes dirt and other contamination in the shortest time and without damage from many different products to be cleaned.
Ultrasonic cleaning uses cavitation bubbles and shock waves induced by high frequency pressure (sound) waves to agitate a liquid. The agitation produces high forces on contaminants adhering to substrates like metals, plastics, glass, rubber, and ceramics. This action also penetrates blind holes, cracks, and recesses. The intention is to thoroughly remove all traces of contamination tightly adhering or embedded onto solid surfaces. Aqueous cleaning media can be used, depending on the type of contamination and the workpiece. Contaminants can include dust, dirt, oil, rust, grease, bacteria, lime scale, polishing compounds, flux agents, fingerprints, soot wax and mold release agents, biological soil like blood, and so on. Ultrasonic cleaning can be used for a wide range of workpiece shapes, sizes, and materials, and may not require the part to be disassembled prior to cleaning.
Elma’s multi-frequency units can produce multiple ultrasonic frequencies allowing for sensitive surfaces to be treated with high frequencies, and robust pieces to be cleaned with low frequencies.
