The beauty about human existence is our ability to adapt. Extending from Darwinian theories which established human beings as the superior species for their innate nature of adaptation and natural selection to some of the most groundbreaking discoveries regarding anything under the sun, human beings have made the most of technology in every facet possible. Technology involves the gamut of inventions which have simplified human life and to that end, it has pervaded into every sphere. Inside homes which present some of the most spectacular and fascinating examples of technology and the gadgets that come along with it. When it comes to cleaning and sweeping, archaic forms of using buckets, mops and dusting cloths have been revolutionised into the ways of the present century through ultrasonic cleaning. Not as complicated as it sounds, the process becomes simpler and makes the tedious process of cleaning as easy as pie. Ultrasonic cleaning, simply defined is the process that uses an ultrasound and a cleaning solution or water to clean different objects. Minimising the time taken to clean using rudimentary methods, this process lasts about three to six minutes, but can go up till twenty depending upon the object. It is the complete removal of dirt, grime and other substances through the means of rapid, high frequency sound waves in a tank within which objects are immersed. The non audible rapid ultrasonic waves create a scrubbing action and with the aid of the cleaning solution, the objects within the tank are rendered clean. As simple as it sounds, it can be used for cleaning a wide variety of objects, mostly ones during cleaning which we break into a sweat. Initially, these machines were used in jewellery workshops, electronic repair workshops and other establishments, but of late, they have made their presence into households and made lives much easier. From jewellery to lenses, fountain pens to coins, golf clubs to window blinds, these machines clean it all and you don’t have to bat an eye. While the process of cleaning involves a few technicalities, it becomes easier to comprehend once you’ve formed a concept of it in your mind.
The process begins through the means of high frequency electrical energy that is converted by a transducer into high frequency sound waves which becomes ultrasonic energy. This energy then enters the liquid which causes small bubbles to form on the surface. These bubbles then travel rapidly inside the tank and implode on the surface of the object that is immersed within the tank. As soon as the bubbles burst against the surface, the cleaning solution then rushes in and cleans out all the nooks and crannies. This process keeps getting repeated on and on and bubbles are created and destroyed while the cleaning solution removes all the layers of dirt from the object. The scrubbing action of the water and the cleaning solution, the energy produced by the transducer and the bubbles that keep forming on the surface are the means through which cleaning happens. So when intricate and precious items get soiled and dirty, the ultrasonic cleaner comes to the rescue and does all your tedious work for you.
