Ultrasonic Cleaning Technology Combined with Water Agitation

Omegasonics offers its cleaning unit, the 1900BTX, that features two cleaning technologies, a water agitation cleaning process and ultrasonic cavitation. Each operates independently to facilitate a more thorough, yet gentle, cleaning process. The unit is especially effective for cleaning 3-D prototype parts.

The 1900BTX is an enhancement to Omegasonics' 1900BT, a 20-gallon plug & play unit that is a hybrid between bench top cleaners and portable floor models. The addition of the magnetic drive pump system in the 1900BTX allows for agitation, similar to a Jacuzzi, whereby the turbulence is controlled so parts are not damaged. Inside the tank, the part flows circularly, which helps dissolve the temporary support structure around the part. The flow and heat are both adjustable because different materials require different pressures and temperatures. In addition, the water agitation tank features a directional spray nozzle that lets the user spray parts directly and precisely.

The ultrasonic cleaning process, in turn, generates cavitation energy inside the bath, which creates its own internal pressure that dissolves the support structure for the parts. It utilizes a non-hazmat cleaning detergent that speeds up the process of removing delicate support material.

"By using both agitation and ultrasonic cleaning methodologies, 1900BTX users get the best of both worlds," said Joe Gilbert, Vice President of Sales at Omegasonics. "3-D prototype parts are cleaned more thoroughly and more quickly with less manpower."
