Introduction to Ultrasonic Cleaning
- Ultrasonic cleaning is the only touch-free cleaning method for vinyl records. It prevents the introduction of micro-scratches, which is typical for brush and wand based methods.
- The ultrasonic cleaning process is based on the cavitation of small vacuum-filled bubbles in the cleaning fluid, which are generated by the ultrasonic sound waves penetrating the fluid. During cavitation of the bubbles in the vicinity of surfaces, high powered water jets eject from the bubbles towards the surface blasting away contaminants.
