Ultrasonic Cleaning Power

Magnus Engineered Equipment manufacturers it’s own Ultrasonic transducers and generators.  Power Sonics ™ line of transducers offer unmatched cleaning consistency whether the parts to be cleaned are large or small, simple or complex, handled singly, in batches, or in an automated line.   Because ultrasonic energy penetrates into crevices and cavities, any type of part or assembly can be cleaned such as precision parts or assemblies.  Having the capability to clean entire assemblies without disassembly results in labor savings that makes ultrasonics the most economical way of cleaning.  The Power Sonics ™ line includes both radial and flat 20 kHz transducers which optimize energy transfer to the bath to maximize ultrasonic scrubbing.

The exclusive Power Sonics TM lamination design results in a transducer which achieves cavitation easily and quickly. This occurs in relatively un-degassed as well as fully degassed solutions. As the name implies, power in the bath directly affects cleaning capability. The 20 kHz magnetostrictive transducer, driven as a uniform unit by an intense generator signal, optimizes energy transfer to the bath to maximize ultrasonic scrubbing. The design produces the highest cavitation intensity and highest power density available in the market.  Power levels of 10 Watts per square inch are achieved!

Radial transducers are cylindrical and expose parts to “full surround” ultrasonic sound waves, thus providing cavitation much greater than “flat” transducers.  For products such as wire, cable, tubing, channel, flat stock, rod, pipe and other materials which can be passed through the radial ultrasonic unit, the ability to clean with a radial ultrasonic unit is unmatched in the sonics industry.  Product can be cleaned through the Power Sonics TM radial transducers at any speed desired and in the smallest footprint owing to the design of the radial transducers.  Unlike systems which utilize flat transducers, the use of radial transducers eliminates “sonic shadowing” and ensures that the entire surface of the product is cleaned !  This feature is important for cleaning of continuous product where 100% surface cleanliness is desired.

Magnus Engineered Equipment has a breadth of experience in designing and manufacturing ultrasonic cleaning equipment to clean any type of substrate from bearings to surgical needles.  Transducers made from special alloys are available as are hardened surfaces.  Magnus Engineered Equipment can recommend the proper cleaning chemistry to optimize the performance of the Power Sonics TM equipment.  Contact Magnus Engineered Equipment to see how Power Sonics TM can be used in your cleaning application.

20 kHz Magnetostrictive Ultrasonics….the most powerful ultrasonics for cleaning applications.

The table below shows the difference in ultrasonic cleaning power as a function of ultrasonic frequency.  Magnus Engineered Equipment (MEE) offers ultrasonic cleaning equipment in a variety of frequencies, but MEE’s 20 kHz magnetostrictive offering is the most powerful ultrasonic cleaning technology in the industry….period !   In order to achieve this level of cleaning power, MEE builds it’s own transducers and generators.  Magnetostrictive transducers are used to deliver the 20 kHz high power not deliverable with piezoelectric transducers.  Some vendors may claim that their 25 kHz or 28 kHz systems deliver the same power as a 20 kHz system, however as one can see in the figure below, the power delivered by 20 kHz is much higher.

Willoughby, Ohio – Magnus Engineered Equipment LLC (MEE), a leading manufacturer of industrial cleaning equipment, announced the successful implementation and launch of the Epicor Cloud ERP solution on April 25th.  The goal was to replace an outdated legacy system with a fully integrated state-of-the-art, modern enterprise resource planning system. The new system allows MEE to improve its production planning capability and provide better customer service.

All of the company’s historical data was preserved and accessible by our customer service team through a secured database.  This data includes customer order detail, supplier purchasing history, and detailed parts master descriptions. The company continues to maintain a serial number database for equipment manufactured dating back to the 1930’s.

The new ERP application will enhance the customer experience by:

  • Providing customers accurate capable to promise delivery dates
  • Allow the capability to seamlessly integrate with the company’s new online store
  • Future mobile and customer-facing applications to improve customer interface

Jeffrey MendralaChief Financial Officer, MEE, said “This success was only possible by having the right team in place to deliver and set up MEE for success. The new Epicor solution will provide the platform to allow MEE to execute on its strategic plan for the long term.
