QUESTION:  

Can objects contact the bottom or sidewalls of the ultrasonic bath when cleaning polishing fixtures?

 

ANSWER:

It is important to note that the cavitation is created by physical movement of the side walls of the cleaner, and that most ultrasonic cleaners are calibrated such that most of the cavitation power occurs somewhere in the middle of the bath.  It is important that objects to be cleaned are suspended within the bath water, and do NOT contact the bottom or interior walls of the ultrasonic cleaner.   Objects contacting the bottom or sidewalls of the cleaner will reduce their movement, and thus reduce the cavitation effect.
