How does an ultrasonic bath work for cleaning polishing fixtures?



The walls of an ultrasonic cleaner vibrate and a particular high frequency, transferring pressure waves to the water. These waves have the effect of pushing-and-pulling the water molecules to create “cavitation”:  essentially “tearing” the water molecules apart, creating a very short-lasting “bubble” of vacuum within the water, which very quickly—and forcefully—implodes. The energy of this collapse, which occurs near the surface of the submerged object, is what creates the agitation to remove contaminates from the surface.
