What is an ultrasonic cleaner?
Ultrasonic cleaners are a particularly gentle and thorough way to clean even sensitive materials. They are also energy-saving and environmentally friendly, which is why they have long been used in industry and in businesses such as opticians, piercing studios or laboratories and medical practices.
An ultrasonic cleaning device works via two processes: air bubbles and ultrasonic vibrations are generated in parallel. This causes bubbles in the water to burst due to alternating low and high pressure. Dirt is thus loosened - gently and effectively.
Caution: Although cleaning is gentle, not all materials are suitable for the ultrasonic cleaner. Pearls or soft gemstones, for example, should be cleaned in another way.
Ultrasonic cleaners for numerous applications
Ultrasonicdevices are used in many applications in the laboratory, medicine, technology, science and industry. Ultrasound is the term used to describe sound waves above the threshold of human audibility in a frequency range from approx. 16 kHz to 1 GHz. An ultrasound device is generally understood to be a device used in medicine for ultrasound examinations, sonography, or in industry for ultrasound testing.
Ultrasound systems are universal laboratory devices that can be used for various ultrasound processes and laboratory applications. The devices are used, for example, in laboratories in biology, chemistry, biotechnology, pharmacy, the food industry as well as in medical technology, medical therapy and ultrasound diagnostics.
Our proven ultrasound technology devices from Bandelin, Hielscher, Elma, Fritsch, Grant or Reitel cover almost all ultrasound applications in the laboratory. Laboratory ultrasound equipment is primarily used for:
- Sample preparation
- Activation and acceleration of chemical reactions (sonochemistry)
The ultrasonic cleaning devices offered are used for sonication of small and medium-sized laboratory samples as well as for sonication of larger volumes in the industrial sector. We will be happy to advise you on the selection of the right ultrasonic equipment for your laboratory applications.

How does an ultrasonic cleaner work?
Ultrasonic devices perform a variety of functions and tasks in the laboratory. Depending on the area of application and requirements, different ultrasonic systems are used. The functional principle of ultrasound devices and Doppler sonography is based on the fact that a transducer emits sound waves - and, if necessary, picks up the reflected waves again.
For this purpose, an ultrasound device has electronics for generating the sound, signal processing and display; ultrasound transducer / ultrasound transducer and generator, which supplies the transducer(s) with high-frequency electrical energy. In general, laboratory ultrasound devices are used to sonicate laboratory samples with volumes between 0.1 ml and 230 litres . Sonotrodes transmit the ultrasound over a surface and operate at different amplitudes and intensities.
Ultrasonic cleaners or ultrasonic cleaning devices are mainly used for disinfection and cleaning of contamination even in hard-to-reach places, surfaces, angles and openings.
Ultrasonic cleaner types at ProfiLab24.com
Ultrasonic devices are available in a wide variety of designs, sizes and types. The spectrum of ultrasound technology on offer ranges from handy ultrasound homogenisers, small, compact ultrasound cleaning devices for routine tasks in the laboratory to large-volume ultrasound industrial devices that are suitable for sonicating large sample vessels and quantities.
Which ultrasonic system is used in a laboratory depends largely on the ultrasonic applications and working volume. In the professional sector, there are three main model types:
Classic ultrasonic cleaning baths
Ultrasonic cleaning is a reliable, environmentally friendly method of cleaning. Ultrasonic baths are excellent for removing dirt and bacteria from more complex surface structures without chemicals. This type of cleaning is used in jewellery and cosmetic shops as well as in watchmaking and medical facilities. Classic ultrasonic cleaning baths are particularly suitable for cleaning polymers and synthetic materials, metals or glass.
Ultrasonic homogenisers are suitable for a wide range of applications such as waste water homogenisation, digestion of soil samples or sample preparation for particle size analysis. They are specially developed for use in the laboratory and are characterised by their easy handling. Ultrasonic homogenisers guarantee the user reproducible results.
Ultrasonic hot air sterilisers
Hot air sterilisers are often used in the cosmetics industry as well as in tattoo and piercing studios. Devices such as pliers for foot care, manicure accessories or piercing needles are heated in a basket in the ultrasonic bath. The temperature of 180 °C hot air and a sterilisation time of 90 - 120 minutes ensure that the object to be cleaned is completely destroyed.
Ultrasonic units: find the right accessories
Our versatile ultrasonic units from renowned manufacturers are characterised by their robust designs, simple operation and flexibility to exchange or add components.
Depending on the type of ultrasound scanner and manufacturer, you can order different components and accessories such as various sonotrodes, glass flow cells, stands, sound insulation box, filter inserts, adapters, adapter seals, PC interface and many other accessories for the models offered.
