Ultrasonic Cleaning

Get Ultrasonic Cleaning Services here at SCP

A common complaint about polished metal parts is that they are returned with polishing compound stuck into small holes and tight corners which can be timely to clean. Here at SCP we have solved this issue with the installation of a large ultrasonic cleaning tank and pure water rinse station.

All parts polished by SCP go through this cleaning line and are then dried, and quality checked before shipping, this guarantees your products are ready for use straight away with no further cleaning or inspection required.

Ultrasonic cleaning can now be requested as a standalone service, for parts that just require a good clean rather than polishing or bead blasting.

What is Ultrasonic Cleaning

The process of ultrasonic parts cleaning involves submerging the parts in a heated tank of environmentally friendly and metal safe detergent, the machine then produces ultrasonic waves to gently agitate the surface contaminants without physically moving or damaging the part or polished surface.

Parts are then rinsed clean using ultra pure RODI water and hot air dried to prevent scratching by cloths before inspection and wrapping.

We also offer the ultrasonic parts cleaning as a standalone service for parts that do not require polishing but do need to be cleaned of any oil, grease or deposits. Contact us today for a competitive quote that could save your company time and money.

Stages of Ultrasonic Cleaning

Pre-cleaning and Hot Degreasing

Parts are submerged in the hot tank and allowed to soak for a specified length of time to “soften” the grease / wax deposits.

Ultrasonic Wave

The parts are then subjected to ultrasonic waves, for a specified period and intensity depending on the metal. This gently agitates and cleans the parts without risk of damage to either the part or the polished surface.

Rinsing and Acid Neutralization

Once clean, the parts are inspected then rinsed with hot pure RODI water to remove traces of oils and detergent residue

Water Displacement and Preservation

Lastly, the parts are left to dry in a laboratory hot cupboard, this eliminates the risk of scratching the polished metal surfaces with cloths.
Once dry, parts are inspected once again before being carefully wrapped and protected for transport
