How It Works

The Ultrasonic Process

Think of TSI & NSP's ultrasonic applications as a vessel filled with microscopic scrub brushes, scrubbing away the fouling and contamination that is negatively affecting the performance of critical process equipment. The scrub brushes, being the ultrasonic, remove the fouling and the specially-designed chemistries in the Tech Sonic vessel hold this fouling in suspension away from the equipment being cleaned. The scrub brushes are created by the cavitation process, whereby positive and negative pressure waves that generate microscopic bubbles form on all surfaces throughout the component being cleaned. These are no ordinary bubbles, releasing energy through an implosion near the surface being cleaned.

When they implode, it formulates a high-speed jet of liquid that impacts the surfaces of the component at extremely high pressures and temperatures. This dynamic action separates the contaminants from all surfaces without any damage to the component.

This micro-jet impact combined with specialized ultrasonic solutions removes bitumen, heavy oils, greases, calcification and other refinery by products faster and more thoroughly than conventional methods of power washing, steam, manual scrubbing and chemical dip tanks.
But don’t let us simply tell you how Tech Sonic’s cleaning process works, see for yourself! This animation demonstrates exactly how the cleaning process works. Next, watch our cleaning technologies in action.
