Ultrasonic cleaning involves the use of high-frequency sound waves (above the upper range of human hearing, or about 18 kHz) to remove a variety of contaminants from parts immersed in aqueous media (water). As traditional, solvent-based, cleaning systems have been phased out, Ultrasonic Cleaning is viewed as the preferred nontoxic, nonflammable, and environmentally friendly alternative.
