Instructions for using the ultrasound machine

The instructions for using the ultrasound machine is an advanced tool widely used across various industries for cleaning equipment and instruments. However, to use the ultrasonic cleaning machine effectively and safely, users need to understand the process and safety measures. In this article, we will provide a detailed and easy-to-understand ultrasonic cleaning machine usage guide, helping you maximize the device’s performance.

What is an ultrasonic cleaner?

An ultrasonic cleaner is a device that uses ultrasonic technology to clean materials, surfaces or products. This technology works on the principle of creating high-frequency sound waves (usually from 20 kHz to 40 kHz) in a cleaning solution, usually water or a solution containing mild detergents. When ultrasonic waves pass through the solution, they create cavitation (formation and explosion of tiny air bubbles). This process creates extremely small but very strong impact forces, helping to remove dirt, grease and impurities from the surface of the material.

Instructions for using the ultrasonic cleaner before use

Check the machine and working environment

  • Machine location: Place the machine on a flat, sturdy surface, avoiding vibration. Make sure there is space around it to dissipate heat.
  • Check electricity: Make sure the power cord is not exposed or broken. The socket must be dry and not loose. The voltage must match the machine’s requirements.
  • Environment: Make sure the place where the machine is placed is well ventilated and not damp. Avoid placing near heat sources or strong magnetic fields.
  • Check the parts: Check if the sink, lid, or control panel are damaged.

Instructions for preparing cleaning solution using an ultrasonic cleaner

  • Choose solution: Based on the type of material to be cleaned (metal, plastic, glass…) to choose the appropriate solution.
  • Dilution: Carefully read the manufacturer’s instructions on dilution rates. Usually 1:10 or 1:20 with water.
  • Pouring the solution: Pour slowly into the sink, avoiding foaming. Fill to the recommended level, usually 2/3 of the tank height.
  • Temperature: Some solutions require a certain temperature, which should be checked and adjusted if necessary.

Classify and arrange objects to be cleaned

  • Grouping: Divided by size, material, dirt level. Do not mix different types of materials.
  • Arrange: Place large, heavy objects on the bottom, small, light objects on top. Avoid stacking.
  • Use accessories: Use baskets and trays for small objects. Use clamps to hold the object easily.
  • Distance: Ensure space between objects so that sound waves spread evenly.
  • Do not overload: Comply with the machine’s weight limits. Usually no more than 2/3 of the tank capacity.

Step 1: Turn on the device and set parameters

  • Power on the machine.
  • Select the appropriate working mode (if there are multiple modes).
  • Time setting: usually from 3-15 minutes depending on the type of object to be cleaned.
  • Temperature adjustment (if the machine has this function): usually from 40-60°C.
  • Choose the appropriate ultrasound frequency (if the machine allows adjustment).

Step 2: Place the object to be cleaned into the wash tank

  • Pour the cleaning solution into the tank to the specified level.
  • Place the item to be cleaned in the basket or directly into the tank.
  • Make sure the object is completely immersed in the solution.
  • Do not stack objects on top of each other to ensure effective cleaning.

Step 3: Proceed with the cleaning process

  • Close the machine lid (if any).
  • Start the ultrasound function.
  • Let the machine operate for the set time.
  • Observe the process to ensure no problems occur.

Step 4: Check and clean again if necessary

  • After finishing the cycle, turn off the ultrasonic function.
  • Remove the object from the wash tank.
  • Carefully check the cleanliness of the object.
  • If the requirements are not met, repeat the process from step 2.

Step 5: Rinse and dry the object after cleaning

  • Rinse the object with clean water to remove the cleaning solution.
  • Use distilled or deionized water if high cleanliness is required.
  • Dry the item with a soft towel or let it air dry.
  • For sensitive materials, a low-temperature dryer can be used.

Time: 3-10 minutes, depending on dirt level and type of metal.
Temperature: 50-60°C for most metals.
Frequency: 25-40 kHz.
Solution: Specialized detergent for metals, neutral pH.
  • Avoid direct contact of dissimilar metals to avoid electrochemical reactions.
  • For soft metals like aluminum, use shorter times and lower temperatures.
  • Check the shine after cleaning.

Plastic and rubber

Time: 2-5 minutes.
Temperature: 40-50°C (lower than metal to avoid deformation).
Frequency: 40-68 kHz (higher to avoid surface damage).
Solution: Mild detergent, neutral pH.
  • Test the material’s heat resistance before cleaning.
  • Avoid using strong solvents that can dissolve the resin.
  • Watch closely during cleaning to avoid deformation.

Glass and ceramics

Time: 3-8 minutes.
Temperature: 50-60°C.
Frequency: 35-45 kHz.
Solution: Water with a little neutral detergent.
  • Make sure the object is not cracked or chipped before cleaning.
  • Avoid sudden temperature changes to avoid thermal shock.
  • Be especially careful with antique or precious ceramics.

Electronic components

Time: 1-3 minutes (short to avoid damage).
Temperature: 30-40°C (low to protect sensitive components).
Frequency: 40-80 kHz (high for effective cleaning without harm).
Solution: Specialized solution for electronic components, non-conductive.
  • Remove the battery or power source before cleaning.
  • Use insulated baskets to place components.
  • Dry completely with compressed air or in a low temperature oven.
  • Avoid cleaning components that contain sensitive parts such as LCD screens.
General note:
  • Always start short and gradually increase as needed.
  • Check material compatibility with cleaning solution before use.
  • For mixed materials, use the settings appropriate to the most sensitive material.
  • Always monitor the cleaning process and stop immediately if abnormalities are detected.
