Ultrasonic activated stream cleaning of a range of materials

Ultrasonic activated stream cleaning of a range of materials

Ultrasonically Activated Stream (UAS) technology is designed to produce ultrasonic cleaning, and in this paper it does so for scenarios for which an ultrasonic cleaning bath would be unsuitable, e.g., removing key contaminants (such as biofilms) from delicate substrates (tissues, etc.), without damaging that substrate.

Abstract

Despite decades of routine use (starting from the industrial setting but now also with domestic products available), ultrasonic cleaning faces technical challenges that have never been overcome, and the root of many of these lies with an understanding of the interaction between the bubble population and the sound field. Ultrasonically Activated Stream (UAS) technology is designed to produce ultrasonic cleaning, and in this paper it does so for scenarios for which an ultrasonic cleaning bath would be unsuitable, e.g., removing key contaminants (such as biofilms) from delicate substrates (tissues, etc.), without damaging that substrate.
