The significant advantage of ultrasonic cleaning technique is the abilities to clean the delicateand complex shape materials without damaging their surfaces quickly. Ultrasonic cleaners havefound increasing applications in a variety of industries because these offer an environmentallygood alternative to ozone-depleting compounds and hazardous solvents. Also, ultrasonicvibration is one of the methods for chemical synthesis (chemical reaction) and of yieldenhancement of chemical engineering process. Consequently, there is a need to developmultipurpose ultrasonic cleaner/vibrator using computer control, which can be used to set thevarious performance parameter of ultrasonic vibrator such as frequency, duty cycle, continuous/pulsed mode, duration of operation, and thermal profile of tank during the process. An ultrasoniccleaner was developed using an oscillator circuit and the duration of oscillator circuit functioningcan be set through the computer. Computerised ultrasonic cleaner using indigenously madepiezoceramic transducers and their advantages over the conventional ultrasonic cleaners are discussed.
