When it comes to cleaning machined parts, a variety of factors are to be considered. One of the most important factors is the type of part you are cleaning. While you can clean these parts by hand, the results will be inadequate. To get the best results, the dirt and grime on the surfaces must be removed. This includes threads, blind holes, and even the interior of the part. Without proper cleaning, coatings and other materials will not adhere to the parts. Using an ultrasonic cleaner is like using a washing machine for parts cleaning, but the cleaning results are more thorough.
While it is important to use a proper detergent, you should also look into the carrier that the cleaner uses. The carrier plays an important role in the cleaning process, as it influences the amount of time and the outcome. Most cleaning machines come with baskets that are made of stainless steel round wire. These baskets allow you to access the parts and the media. To ensure the best results, you should choose a solution that is formulated to clean these parts.
The carrier that carries the cleaning agent is a key factor. This is because the product carriers will have a huge impact on the quality and the duration of the cleaning process. If you are using a solvent, make sure that it can dissolve any nonpolar cutting fluids. On the other hand, if you are using a solvent, you can be certain that it will dissolve the polar contamination.
Another important factor is the cleaning agents used. You need to use solvents to remove polar contaminants. In most cases, solvents are the best option for cleaning nonpolar cutting fluids. Since they dissolve the nonpolar components, you need to make sure that you use solvents for a nonpolar cutting fluid. This way, the solvents won't harm the polar parts and will leave the optimum surface for the ultrasonic process.
Besides a good cleaning solution, you should also consider the shape and density of the parts to be cleaned. A heavy, dense mass will not be able to be thoroughly cleaned. In this case, it is necessary to use a dual frequency ultrasonic cleaner. Ideally, it should operate between 35 and 130 kHz. Some of these machines are benchtop-type, but you should check to see which one can be used for the job.
In addition to choosing the right ultrasonic cleaning solution, it is important to know how to load the parts. A basic ultrasonic cleaner can be used for cleaning items with a small orifice, but a high-powered machine will clean larger objects. The higher the frequency, the better. A dual-frequency machined cleaner is more likely to be able to penetrate the inner surface of the part.
