Enhance the cleaning power of your existing tank with Zenith Submersible Ultrasonic Cleaning Systems

For customers who would like to improve the cleaning power of their existing tank by installing an ultrasonic cleaning device, Zenith's submersible system may be the most economical and efficient choice on the market.

However, before buying a submersible system, please consider the tank you already have and its material of construction. 

Ideally, your existing tank should be manufactured of stainless steel or metal of some kind.

Ultrasonic Immersibles with Riser Mount

Plastic tanks are unsuitable for ultrasonic applications because they dampen the ultrasonic waves and so reduce the available ultrasonic cleaning power from anything between 60-90 per cent.

Submersible (or immersible) cleaning systems are powered by ultrasonic generators that are housed in transducer packs made from either 304 or 316 stainless steel. These packs contain a double stack of individual Zenith high-efficiency ultrasonic transducers. They are usually mounted to the bottom or the side walls of an existing tank so as to promote evenly-distributed ultrasonic cleaning in the tank in which they are submerged. The transducer packs come with special mounting tabs with holes and are designed to be attached permanently to the tank.

Submersible systems come with 25kHz, 40kHz, 80kHz, or CROSSFIRE Multiple Frequency Ultrasonic Systems.

The frequency you select will determine the size of the transducer pack you install. Most measure 3-4" tall and this corresponds to the amount of space that you will lose within your existing tank once the submersible cleaning system is installed. 

Ultrasonic Immersible with Riser Mount & Generator

Zenith technicians will help both to determine which frequency is best for your specific application and to decide on the best location for mounting the transducer packs within your tank. 

The transducer pack is connected to the ultrasonic generator via an RF-shielded electrical cable which comes with quick disconnect fittings. There are two ways to pass this cable into the tank: either through the bottom of the tank via a bulkhead mount (basically just a sealed hole) or through what we call a riser which looks a bit like a rigid snorkel made out of stainless steel which passes through the top of the tank.

There are pros and cons to both entry routes. Many customers prefer to buy the riser-style transducer packs because they do not want to make a hole in the bottom of their tank. The main disadvantage to using risers is that they may interfere with the cover or other system parts that are installed on the top. Most Zenith submersibles are custom manufactured in order to maximize the effectiveness of the ultrasonic system and to minimize possible dead spots. We are the only manufacturer to offer this service at no additional charge. We also have a line of standard ultrasonic submersible systems available.

If you think your existing cleaning tank may be suitable to adapt to ultrasonic cleaning please contact our technicians at Zenith and we will be pleased to provide you with more information and a quotation for a custom-made submersible system.
