• Aqueous

    water based


  • Biodegradable

    The ability of an item to break down into natural materials over time without harm to the environment.


  • Cavitation

    The formation of bubbles in a liquid

  • Cleaning Cycle

    The amount of time required to properly remove the debris from the item that is being cleaned.  Cleaning cycles will vary, but typically will fall in the 5 – 20 minute range.


  • Degassing

    The process of removing trapped air bubbles in the cleaning solution

  • Direct Cleaning

    When parts are cleaned by directly placing them in the ultrasonic tank and cleaning solution

  • Disinfect

    The process of cleaning an item to rid it of harmful bacteria


  • Implosion

    The act of the cleaning bubble violently collapsing inward

  • Indirect Cleaning

    When parts are placed in a secondary container (pan, beaker) containing the cleaning solution.  This vessel is than placed inside the ultrasonic tank.  Commonly used when a 2-step cleaning process is required or a cleaning liquid is potentially harmful to the ultrasonic tank.

  • Instrument Cassette

    An instrument holder designed to allow practices to organize their instruments in a neat and orderly fashion for instrument re-processing while also promoting staff safety.


  • Rinse

    Removes residual debris and excess cleaning solution


  • Semi-aqueous

    Include water as one of the components.  Other components are naturally derived such as terpenes and pine oil cleaners.

  • Solvent

    A substance capable of dissolving another compound

  • Solvent-free

    A water based or semi-aqueous cleaning solution containing no solvents.

  • Surfactant

    A substance which reduces surface tension thereby increasing the spreading or wetting ability of the cleaning liquid.

  • Sweep

    A purposeful deviation from the cleaning frequency designed to enhance cavitation activity.


  • Transducer

    A device used to convert electrical energy into sound waves.


  • Ultrasonic Cleaning

    A non-abrasive cleaning process that removes soils by using sound waves to generate microscopic bubbles to attack the bond attaching the debris and item being cleaned.
