Maximum cleaning power for the future
Cleanliness requirements for parts and surfaces in all industries and applications keep increasing. To allow seamless processing and to minimize failure rate the cleanliness level of individual components becomes a critical quality factor. And this is exactly where ultrasonic technology, suitable for coarse, fine, and ultra-fine cleaning from 25 to 1,000 kHz, comes into play. Users not only save of time and additives, but the high cleaning power also reduces energy consumption. These factors make ultrasound an especially sustainable technology.

Infinite Cleaning Solutions, perfect Results
Ultrasonic cleaning – a versatile technology
Almost invisible specks of dust on a circuit board, an oil film on a metal part, or germs on medical devices – there is an infinite number of cleaning tasks. Weber Ultrasonics offers the right, tailored solution for any task. Our technology is versatile and can be separated into specific fields of application.
Course cleaning with ultrasound takes place in the lower frequency range at about 25 or 30 kHz. The implosion of cavitation bubbles at 25 kHz spontaneously creates local temperatures of up to 5,000 °C and pressures of up to 500 bar. This is especially suited for the removal of larger machining residue like chips, dust, lubricant and much more.
In fine cleaning, between 40 and 120 kHz, particles and contaminants are being removed from pores, holes or lighter structures. This process is frequently used for jewelry, lenses and other optical components, and watches as well as dental and chirurgical instruments.
Delicate work pieces, e.g. in photovoltaic, semi-conductor industry, fine or micro optics, or micro and Nano technology, can be cleaned especially gentle and effective in the frequency range between 250 kHz and 1 MHz. Ultrasonic technology enables the non-destructive and residue-free removal of the finest particles as well as contamination films – even for work pieces with complex geometries.
Cleaning of large & complex Parts and Shapes
Ultrasonic technology is well suited for the cleaning of large work pieces or complex such with complex geometries like transmission cases, heat exchangers, and tools. The homogeneous cavitation field provides consistent cleaning power to the complete shape, even in hard to get to areas. This doesn’t only save time but also the environment due to the reduced need of energy and chemicals.
Cleaning of large & complex Substrates (Optic)
Highest cleanliness levels are required in the optical industry. Ultrasound technology provides the right solution here as well. With multi- and high frequency processing up to Mega-sound, optical lenses of any size, disks, diamond nozzles, high-tech ceramics, and much more can be cleaned precisely.
To create a homogenous mixture out of a powder and a liquid, e.g. paint production, ultrasonics offer an interesting alternative to conventional methods. The cavitation forces efficiently disperse solids with liquids but also separate agglomerates into its ingredients. The adaptability of our ultrasonic components allows for individual selection of power and frequency.
To improve corrosion resistance or achieve especially high-grade decorative surfaces, metal parts for armatures and fittings are being electroplated. Depending on the material electroplating processes are called copper coating, solver plating, galvanizing, chrome-plating, etc. Ultrasonic technology can be utilized in different steps of these plating processes. One examples is during pre-cleaning to degrease work pieces accelerating the electroplating process and improving its quality. Another one is a final cleaning step after the electroplating process to remove possible residue.
Impregnating, Bleaching, Mercerizing
Textiles gain special characteristics if their threads and clothes are being refined. However, the necessary processes often require large amounts of chemicals, water and energy. Implementation of innovative ultrasonic solutions for the treating of textiles offers new possibilities conserving resources and reducing cycle times. It doesn’t only reduce the environmental impact but also makes refining of textiles more economical.
Combined Cleaning Applications
Through Combined Cleaning different contamination types can be removed in one cleaning process. Our innovative ultrasonic solutions support this process and can be tuned to it. Customers can clean injector nozzles, watches and machine components with different temperatures and frequencies.
Cleaning under Vacuum – Aqueous, Solvent, or Hybrid
Most cleaning systems for components with polar and non-polar contaminants, e.g. cutting oils and salts, utilize aqueous as well as solvent cleaning steps. Performing the cleaning process under vacuum reduces the boiling temperature of the media, allows the treatment of blind holes, and the drying process can immediately follow. For vacuum cleaning applications we don’t only provide rod-type transducers but also our newly developed vacuum-resistant submersible transducers.
The true versatility of ultrasonic technology is clearly displayed by the vast range of applications other than the traditional cleaning, welding and cutting. Disintegrating, deburring, or processing of spirits (intensifying of wine color, aging of whiskey, etc.). Leak testing of beverage containers or de-gassing – the potential of ultrasonic technologies is far from exploited. Together with universities and institutions, our research department is constantly searching for new applications and solutions.
