Companies that use, repair and manufacture filters can rely on ultrasonic filter cleaning technology to remove dirt and contamination from filtering equipment and components. Ultrasonic cleaning significantly increases filter flow rates, longevity, reliability and performance. The ultrasonic cleaning process is far faster and more efficient than traditional cleaning methods and prevents potential cross contamination resulting from insufficiently-cleaned filters.
How does ultrasonic filter cleaning work?
Don’t replace filters when they become clogged with dirt, grease or other contaminants; ultrasonic cleaners can restore many types of filters to look and function like new. Ultrasonic parts washers are particularly effective for filters made of metal or plastic mesh; the gentle yet powerful process is much less damaging than traditional cleaning methods that use a brush and high-velocity chemical cleaning solutions. Ultrasonic cleaners use water based solutions that won’t damage filters yet reach every crack and crevice for the best possible clean. Ultrasonic cleaning uses a process called cavitation where microscopic bubbles form from ultrasonic waves, then implode on the part’s components; thereby vigorously yet gently scrubbing and cleaning surfaces and crevices. No matter how stubborn the build-up, your filters will be restored to full working capacity.
