What is an ultrasonic cleaner needed for?

An ultrasonic cleaner is often used in dentistry to clean and disinfect instruments. To do this, the instruments are placed in a solution of water and cleaning agent, which is heated by the ultrasonic cleaner. The ultrasonic cleaner then generates sound waves that cause the liquid and detergent to move rapidly on the surface of the instruments. These movements dislodge dirt, blood and other contaminants from the instruments. Ultrasonic cleaners are used in dentistry primarily for cleaning small instruments such as forceps, spatulas and tweezers. However, they are also useful for cleaning larger instruments such as drills and handpieces. After cleaning, instruments are usually dried and sterilized in a sterilizer before being used again. Ultrasonic cleaners are a quick and effective way to clean and disinfect instruments in dentistry. They are also relatively inexpensive compared to other methods of instrument reprocessing and have the advantage that they require hardly any chemical cleaning agents. They are therefore an important application in dentistry and are used in many dental practices and clinics

How does ultrasonic cleaning work?

An ultrasonic cleaner is a device that generates high sound frequencies to clean solid or liquid materials. It is often used to clean small objects such as instruments, handpieces, dental prosthetics. The sound frequencies produced by an ultrasonic cleaner are inaudible to the human ear and range from 20,000 to 50,000 hertz. These sound waves are generated by a generator and converted by a transducer into vibrations that are transmitted in a bath of cleaning solution.

The vibrations create small bubbles in the cleaning solution that implode when they hit the surface of the material being cleaned. This phenomenon is referred to as "cavitation." Cavitation creates forces that loosen dirt and other contaminants from the surface of the material and wash them into the cleaning solution.

There are also smaller portable models that are suitable for use on the go. The cleaning time usually depends on the size of the cleaner, the size and type of material being cleaned, and the hardness of the contaminants.

What are the advantages of an ultrasonic cleaner compared to cleaning by hand?

Some items are difficult to clean by hand, for example, because they are sharp-edged, have a complex shape, or are made of different materials. Using an ultrasonic cleaner has many advantages over cleaning by hand or other cleaning devices. 
  1. The products remain undamaged
  2. Ultrasonic cleaning is fast and efficient
  3. Suitable for objects of complex shape
  4. Safer than cleaning by hand
  5. Ultrasonic cleaners are versatile
The biggest advantage of an ultrasonic cleaner is that your products remain undamaged. This makes it especially suitable for fragile or delicate materials. Another great advantage is that it is fast and efficient. With a quality ultrasonic bath, your materials will be cleaned within 5 minutes. You can easily attend to other tasks while the ultrasonic cleaner ensures 100% clean materials. In short, an ultrasonic cleaner brings many benefits and is definitely an asset to your practice.

Indirect or direct ultrasonic cleaning?

You can use an ultrasonic cleaner in two ways: directly or indirectly. In direct ultrasonic cleaning, you immerse the items to be cleaned directly into the ultrasonic liquid. This method is simple and effective, but it also has a disadvantage. You have to refill every time you want to perform a new cleaning, and the dirt remains in the ultrasonic device. You can also opt for an indirect method with your ultrasonic cleaner. The indirect method uses ultrasonic cleaner products such as a glass cup and a fine mesh basket. With a glass cup, you can clean multiple materials at once, and loose dirt will not remain in your analog or digital ultrasonic cleaner. A glass cup is smaller than an ultrasonic bath, so you save a lot of cleaning fluid. 
What certification does an ultrasonic cleaner need?
Our ultrasonic cleaners are CE marked and thus comply with all medical guidelines. For efficient cleaning, our ultrasonic cleaners have a high cleaning frequency of 40 kHz and can heat the cleaning bath up to 80°C. If you use these ultrasonic cleaners in combination with our CertoClav autoclaves, you can be sure that your instruments are completely clean and sterile after each reprocessing.
