Cavitation Bubble Implosion Video!

After God knows how many years of looking at that one image of a cavitation bubble presented endlessly with different color variations etc. to “freshen it up” there has emerged some exciting new footage of actual cavitation bubble implosion!  Now, as a start, I don’t think these bubbles, at least the first ones, are the …

Ultrasonics – It’s All About Implosion

Preceding blogs have discussed the inappropriateness of using units of measure such as watts per gallon in describing the power and possible overall effectiveness of an ultrasonic cleaning system.  It is all about energy, but only the energy that results in cavitation bubbles that catastrophically implode really counts!  Before I go further, it will be helpful for …

Stable vs. Transient Cavitation

I have talked about cavitation extensively in previous blogs.  But what I have neglected to address through an omission on my part is the fact that all cavitation does not produce the effect needed to enhance cleaning – namely, the catastrophic collapse of the cavitation bubble in implosion.  Before reading further, please take a minute …

Automatic Chemical Makeup – Will it Work for You?

Automatic chemical addition and makeup is an attractive on feature on today’s sophisticated cleaning machines.  Who wouldn’t appreciate eliminating the drudgery of taking samples, titrating, refractometer readings, or whatever and adding chemistry to a cleaning or rinsing bath manually?  The trouble is that automatic chemical makeup is just not possible or applicable in all cases. Although there are …
