Event Information


This presentation expands the elementary discussion of ultrasonic cavitation and implosion to include a detailed tutorial on considerations for the optimal deployment of ultrasonics in cleaning processes. Included are discussions on the importance of tank and chamber design, transducer configuration and placement, ultrasonic power and ultrasonic frequency, which all in play major roles in the pursuit of best-in-class cleaning results. Additional parameters including cleaning time, temperature and chemistry selection are reviewed in parallel with the topics of transducer placement and ultrasonic frequency selection and their interrelated effects on ultrasonic cleaning performance. The science behind advanced system configurations including double-boilers “tank in tank” designs for aggressive chemistries and “near-field” ultrasonic cleaning is presented, as well as concepts in megasonic equipment and process design. The presentation concludes with proposed challenges to some of the conventional wisdom and accepted best practices in ultrasonic cleaning and process technology.
