Ultrasonic Cleaning Services

Tekwell’s ultrasonic cleaning unit allows large parts to be completely submerged in a tank of cleaning solution, which is then bombarded by high-frequency sound waves (up to 40,000 pulses per second). These intense sound waves create vibrations and bubbles that strip away dirt, grease, oil, old paint, carbon deposits, and many other contaminants from parts.

This cleaning method, especially for parts with complex shapes and crevices, is faster, more energy-efficient, and less destructive than other cleaning methods. Other cleaning methods may use pumps, sprayers, and agitators that consume a lot of water and energy and take longer to complete.

Ultrasonic cleaning works well on parts such as

  • Armatures
  • Commutators
  • Wound rotors
  • Stators
  • Induction rotors
  • Clutch and brake coils
  • Field frames
  • Synchronous coils
  • Motor windings
  • Many others

The Ultrasonic Cleaning Process

Once we have the part(s) to be cleaned, we mix in a special detergent–typically, this is the Metal Medic 7565AR detergent–with 140° F water in the ultrasonic cleaning unit. Then we lower the parts into the unit and start the cleaning cycle. Each cleaning cycle lasts 20 to 30 minutes, and large-diameter parts will be rotated and run through multiple cycles so that all sides of the part are thoroughly cleaned.
