Ultrasonic Cleaning and Degreasing:

Ultrasound is used widely throughout industry for removing problem contamination from all forms of hard surfaces, such as metals, plastics and ceramics. Its unique properties can be harnessed to clean items of all shapes, sizes and technical complexity, penetrating holes and cavities that are impossible to reach using ordinary cleaning methods.

Ultrasonic Cleaning and Degreasing

The principle of the process is as follows. Piezo electric transducers are attached to the cleaning tank. They generate ultrasound waves that vibrate the cleaning fluid at very high velocity, creating a process called cavitation. Millions of tiny bubbles implode within the solution and penetrate into every orifice of the item being cleaned, removing dirt and grime within seconds.


MM Plating Supplies offer a range of ultrasonic cleaning and degreasing units as follows:


Our Units are supplied with robust and powerful generators with a choice of standard frequency, frequency sweep or bar frequency modes, offering a wide selection of cavitational intensities to suit different forms of cleaning.

The generators include versions that are totally sealed from harsh environments, either in the atmosphere or as a result of 'dirty' power supplies. This ensures uninterrupted performance , even with power spikes of up to 2500 volts.

In addition, the standard generators feature ES environmental cooling. This system dispenses with fan assisted forms of cooling which suck in pollution from the outside atmosphere. As a result, there is considerably less risk of generator failure.

Finally, each generator has its own, independent output indicator, making it easy to detect and isolate defective performance and to reduce machine down time.




The machines are constructed using ultrasound 'bar' transducers as opposed to conventional 'cone' transducers. These have a 50% greater contact area with the outside surface of the tank. This factor substantially reduces the risk of 'hot spot' erosion and stress cracks to the metal surface and provides more uniform cleaning.

The transducer bar is not just bonded to the tank, but has a unique centre-bolt mechanical fixing to ensure long lasting adhesion.

The transducers are made of high quality phosphor-bronze/silver construction in order to minimise heat build up, thus extending the life of the transducers and piezo electric crystals.



Ease of Service

Custom designed tanks can be made to order without the customer having to suffer the penalty of high cost for non-standard requirements.
