South Orange, NJ (PRWEB) April 25, 2007
Today Tovatech LLC announced the Transsonic TI-H ultrasonic cleaner line, a product line designed for both industrial and laboratory use. The TI-H bench top ultrasonic cleaner can be switched between two ultrasonic frequencies, 25 /45 kHz or 35/130 kHz.
Low frequencies are for strong, intensive cleaning, while high frequencies are for gentle cleaning of sensitive surfaces. Automotive, aerospace, and machine shops use 25 kHz sonication as a degreaser or for coarse removal of lapping abrasives and polishing media and 45 kHz for fine cleaning of oils and mold release compounds. The intensive sonication at 25 kHz can be used by pharmaceutical and chemical laboratories to dissolve or extract difficult samples and by NASA to kill bacterial spores in rocket insulation. Semiconductor, microelectronics, optics, and jewelry manufacturers sonicate at 130 kHz to clean sensitive surfaces (for example a circuit board) and parts with small features and crevices, and 35 kHz to remove oil and grease from metal, glass, and precious stones. High capacity 48 gallon TI-H 160 units are ideal parts washers for thorough cleaning of stainless steel and plastic pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment.
Designed for heavy duty use, the Transsonic TI-H is remarkably durable, with a 3-year warranty on the special cavitation-resistant stainless steel tanks.
Ultrasonic cleaners operate by producing tiny vacuum filled bubbles which implode releasing high energy in a process known as cavitation. Normal mode sonication is best for mixing, dispersing, and dissolving samples, as the stabilized frequency forces the liquid to circulate and mix. In Sweep mode, the frequency is shifted continuously to ensure that cavitation occurs uniformly throughout the tank. Cleaning glass, metal, or plastic surfaces is most thoroughly achieved in Sweep mode. Freshly mixed cleaning liquid does not clean efficiently until fully degassed, as dissolved gas suppresses cavitation. The TI-H industrial ultrasonic cleaner easily switches between Normal, Sweep, and Degas modes, for mixing, cleaning, and degassing, respectively.
The TI-H has a microprocessor-controlled generator which self-adjusts to the load in the tank, delivering consistent ultrasonic power for both large and small loads. This level of process control in a bench top ultrasonic cleaner is unique to Elma. The microprocessor-controlled Sweep mode affords excellent sound field distribution for reproducible and thorough cleaning throughout the tank.
Transsonic TI-H ultrasonic cleaners are available in 9 sizes: TI-H 5 (1 gallon), TI-H 10 (3 gallon), TI-H 15 (4 gallon), TI-H20 (5 gallon), TI-H 25 (7 gallon), TI-H 55 (15 gallon), TI-H 80 (22 gallon), TI-H 115 (30 gallon), and TI-H 160 (48 gallon). Special hinged covers for thermal and acoustical insulation are available for the smaller units (up to 5 gallons). The simple and elegant design of the control panel makes it easy to select ultrasonic mode and frequency, power level, time, and temperature.
