How to Choose Cleaning Solution for Ultrasonic Probe?

Many customers think that the cleaning solution is just water before purchasing an ultrasonic cleaner. When they know that different cleaning fluids are used, some people still have no idea about the choice of cleaning fluid.

In fact, the cleaning solution for cleaning different objects is different. Choose the right cleaning solution, the cleaning effect of the object will be multiplied with half the effort. So how do we choose the cleaning solution for the ultrasonic probe?

1. Common sense of choosing ultrasound probe cleaning solution

The ultrasonic cleaning tank is made of SUS304 stainless steel, which has corrosion resistance. Therefore, when choosing a cleaning solution, neutral or weak acid and weak alkali cleaning solution can be selected, but strong acid and strong alkali cleaning solution cannot be used.

Strong acid and strong alkali cleaning solutions will not only damage items, but also corrode the ultrasonic probe, and even cause great harm to the human body.

When choosing ultrasound probe cleaning solution, we should put safety, environmental protection, high efficiency and energy saving in the first place. If you are not sure, you can consult a professional who sells ultrasound probe cleaning solutions online.

Only in the face of accurate information, our choice is the most correct, our ultrasonic probe will be better maintained and have a longer service life.

2. Precautions about ultrasound probe cleaning solution

Ultrasound probe cleaning agents are mainly divided into two types, solvent-based cleaning agents and water-based cleaning agents. The cleaning agent plays the role of decomposition, solubilization, emulsification and dispersion in the cleaning process, and then peels off the dirt layer on the surface of the object through the impact force generated by the "cavitation" effect of ultrasonic waves.

Ultrasonic cleaners affect cleaning results. Therefore, the ultrasonic cleaning agent should be selected carefully, and the following five elements should be paid attention to:

① Cleaning effect and cleaning efficiency: Select an effective ultrasonic probe cleaning solvent through experiments with small samples and batches.

② Simple operation and non-corrosiveness: The liquid used should be non-hazardous, non-corrosive and simple to operate.

③ Durability and cost, etc.: The cost of using cheap cleaning solvents is not necessarily low. When using it, factors such as the high cleaning efficiency and durability of the solvent, how many workpieces can be cleaned by a certain amount of solvent, and the utilization rate should be considered.

The cost of use is calculated under the condition that the selected ultrasound probe cleaning solution achieves the cleaning effect and is compatible with the workpiece material. Water is the most common cleaning solution, so it is relatively simple to use water-based solutions, with low cost and wide application.

④ Try to choose a water-based ultrasonic cleaner. Because the ultrasonic machine has a process of heating and shaking during its work, the solvent-based cleaning agent is not as stable as the water-based cleaning agent, which may lead to accidents.

The dosage instructions of the solvent ultrasound probe cleaning solution will indicate that it exceeds 2/3 of the volume of the cleaning tank. In fact, some people often add a small amount in order to save costs. Doing so may damage the circuit board and components.

⑤ Environmental performance is an issue that cannot be ignored. Although enterprises hope that their interests will come first, as the relevant departments pay more attention to pollution problems in all walks of life and do not pay attention to environmental protection, the interests of enterprises will inevitably be damaged.

Environmentally friendly ultrasonic cleaners should be environmentally friendly and harmless. The waste water is degradable, so that the waste water discharge of the enterprise meets the legal standards, and at the same time, it can bring a safe and secure working environment to the production line operators.
