How is ultrasound used for cleaning?


Ultrasound is typically used for cleaning parts situated in hard-to-reach places such as spiral tubes, electronic parts and many more. Objects that are to be cleaned are placed in a cleaning solution wherein the ultrasonic waves are passed through the solution. This high-frequency sound of the ultrasound waves causes the dirt to get detached from the object, hence getting cleaned completely.
