What is the key difference between Audiosonic™ Acoustic Cleaners and vibrators?

Vibrators by their very nature and location have to first pass all their vibrations through the wall of the vessel. This results firstly in severe loss of power and secondly the damaging transmission of vibration through the vessel which can result in metal fracture. With Audiosonic™ Acoustic Cleaners - 100% of the debonding power goes into the material without any risk of damage to any structure or material of construction.

What is the key difference between Audiosonic™ Acoustic Cleaners and Air Cannons?

Air Cannons employ a unidirectional "blast" of high-pressure air to try and remove blockages that have already built up. That is why you always see groups of Air Cannons on any part of an application. Audiosonic™ Acoustic Cleaners prevent the build up from occurring in the first place. Sound waves travel in a 360° radius at a speed of 344 metres per second, therefore a single Audiosonic™ Acoustic Cleaner can be much more effective.

What is the relationship between frequency and dB?

Both are very important, the frequency provides the correct number of debonding pressure fluctuations and the dB provides the necessary energy to successfully complete the job.

Will Audiosonic Acoustic Cleaners damage my equipment?

Primasonics® Audiosonic™ Acoustic Cleaners are designed by tuning the wave generator and shape of the horn so that sound is reflected from solid surfaces rather than passing into them this helps in three ways, equipment is not vibrated and damaged, sound is increased inside the vessel where cleaning is required and as the sound is contained in the vessel this reduces noise nuisance.

What are the compressed air requirements?

The Audiosonic Acoustic Cleaners operate using normal plant compressed air provided three important factors exist.

  • Compressed air piping up to the cleaner - 25 mm diameter
  • Compressed air pressure - 4.8 - 6.2 bar/70 - 90 psi/ 480 - 620 kPa
  • Compressed air volume* - 21.25 l/s 45 SCFM @ 5.5 bar/80psi

* - but remember the Audiosonic™ Acoustic Cleaner is only "sounded" for a few seconds over usually between every 3 - 30 minute period depending on the application.
