Which Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaning Machine Do I Need?

Industrial ultrasonic cleaning equipment has been growing in popularity in recent years. This growth has been driven by several factors, from the need to clean ever-more precise components uniformly to the reduction in labour needed to perform such tasks, allowing the workforce to be allocated elsewhere. There are environmental benefits too, as ultrasonic cleaners can perform industrial-grade cleaning without the need for harmful chemicals and solvents. 

Here at EJ Ultrasonics, we’ve been established for over 40 years and have long championed the use of industrial ultrasonic cleaners. We not only supply and install ultrasonic cleaning machines but invest in the development of new ultrasonic technology too, expanding the possibilities of what an industrial cleaning machine can do. From the smallest precision parts to the largest industrial components, there’s an eco-friendly ultrasonic cleaning solution to fit.  

But where do you start when you’re looking for an ultrasonic cleaner for your specific needs? We’ve put together this brief guide to the variety of machines we supply, along with a little information about each one and the ideal situations and benefits of each size and type of ultrasonic cleaner.  


Industrial ultrasonic cleaners 


Industrial ultrasonic cleaners are sized to clean large and heavy items such as engine parts, machinery and tools. These machines can hold many litres of cleaning solution depending on the model and come with a high-power generator that generates ultrasonic waves. The high-frequency sound waves cause cavitation, creating microscopic bubbles that implode, releasing a high amount of energy that removes dirt and grime. Read more about how ultrasonic cleaning works. 

Industrial ultrasonic cleaning equipment has a robust construction, built to withstand heavy usage in industrial settings. They are versatile and can clean a wide range of surfaces, including metal, plastic, glass and ceramics. Industrial ultrasonic cleaners are easy to operate and require minimal maintenance – they are built to last, and we can even create a bespoke-sized machine for your exact needs. 


Benefits of industrial ultrasonic cleaners 


  • Made from durable stainless steel 
  • Can add pumps, filters and other ancillaries 
  • Efficient and effective cleaning of large and heavy items 
  • High-power generator for maximum cavitation 
  • Versatile cleaning of different surfaces 
  • Easy to operate and maintain

Benchtop ultrasonic cleaners 


Benchtop ultrasonic cleaners are small and compact machines designed for cleaning smaller items such as jewellery, dental instruments and electronic components. These machines are placed on a table or bench and have a tank capacity of a few litres.  

They come with a low-power generator that generates low-frequency sound waves that create small bubbles that gently but thoroughly clean the surface of items. Benchtop ultrasonic cleaners are portable and can be easily moved to different locations in your workspace.  


Benefits of benchtop ultrasonic cleaners 


  • Robust stainless steel construction 
  • Compact and portable design 
  • Gentle cleaning of small items 
  • Easy to use and require minimal training 
  • Affordable and cost-effective 
  • Perfect for jewellery, medical and dental tools, tattoo equipment and more

Automated ultrasonic cleaners 


Automated ultrasonic cleaners are designed for high-volume cleaning of small to medium-sized parts. In an automated ultrasonic cleaner, each cleaning stage is carried out in a separate tank. They work by using a computer-controlled basket system that moves each item from one stage of the cleaning process to the next, utilising a cutting-edge identification sensor. Stages include washing, rinsing and drying, and stages can be customised to meet your needs. 

Automated ultrasonic cleaners have robust construction and can clean a wide range of parts, including automotive components, medical devices and electronics. They come with advanced controls that allow for precise cleaning of parts, require very little oversight to operate and can clean up to ten baskets of items per hour. Automated ultrasonic cleaners are used primarily in the manufacturing, electronic, medical and pharmaceutical industries. 


Benefits of automated ultrasonic cleaners 


  • Improves efficiency and productivity 
  • High-volume cleaning of small to medium-sized parts 
  • Advanced controls for precise cleaning 
  • Customisable to meet specific cleaning requirements 
  • Robust construction for heavy usage 
  • Runs at low cost with little maintenance

Multi-stage ultrasonic cleaners 


Multi-stage ultrasonic cleaners are ideal for the thorough cleaning of parts that require more than one cleaning step. These innovative machines come with a series of ultrasonic baths that are designed for different cleaning solutions and processes, allowing for a robust cleaning process that exactly meets your specific needs. 

Multi-stage ultrasonic cleaners can clean a wide range of parts, including medical instruments, aerospace components and jewellery. They come with an array of advanced control options that allow for the precise cleaning of parts and are particularly popular with businesses that require a high level of customisable control over their cleaning processes.

Submersible ultrasonic cleaners 


One of the most adaptable uses of ultrasonic cleaning technology is in submersible ultrasonic cleaners. They comprise an ultrasonic transducer-equipped stainless steel box that can be fitted into any tank to convert it into an ultrasonic bath. They can be added to already-existing tanks or created specifically to meet the needs of a new ultrasonic tank installation.  

As the name suggests, submersible ultrasonic cleaners are completely submersible and are adapted to fit into your existing setup with no issues. Additionally, multiple submersible ultrasonic cleaning devices can be fitted into the tank to provide maximum cleaning versatility and customisation options when it comes to cleaning intensity. 


Benefits of submersible ultrasonic cleaners 


  • Can be used in any tank to create an ultrasonic bath on demand 
  • Offers gentle cleaning of parts that require immersion in the cleaning solution 
  • Versatile cleaning of different parts in industrial quantities  
  • Can be free-standing to allow the tank to be used for other purposes as needed 
  • Affordable and cost-effective 
  • Can be created to your exact needs, customised by EJ Ultrasonics
