What Ultrasonic Technology Is Used By Vegetable Washers?

Ultrasonic washers use ultrasound technology which is an oscillating sound pressure wave which operates at a frequency above the upper audible limit of human hearing. Most times the washer operates in a frequency ranging from 20 kHz to 400 kHz. Once the device is plugged to a power outlet and switched on, a transducer generates ultrasound which produces ultrasonic waves by changing size in agreement with an electronic signal.

 The oscillating sound pressure wave creates many microscopic vacuum bubbles that attack, kill or remove all germs, bacteria, dirt and other contaminants on vegetables and fruits.

The powerful sound pressure waves result in thousands of minuscule compression waves in the water. This tears the water apart and brings about a process known as cavitation, which creates millions of microscopic vacuum bubbles. It is the bubbles that clean and washes your fruits, vegetables, and other household items. The technology has been around for years, and it has been used in industrial and medical applications for powerful and efficacious cleaning. 

Is The Ultrasonic Vegetable Washer Applicable In Other Areas?

The application of the fruits and vegetable washer is not limited to veggies and fruits. Some other things you can use the washer for are:

How to Use a Vegetable Washer

How to operate or use an ultrasonic vegetable washer varies with the type you go for or have. The way you will operate a Sonic Soak is different from the way you will operate other washers even though they use the same principle. For a Sonic Soak:

  • Look for a bowl and fill it with water. You can also use the sink

  • Plug the device in the wall unit

  • Put the Sonic Soak and your dirty veggies, fruits, and other items inside the sink or bowl filled with water

  • Set the timer which can vary depending on the time you want per cycle and press start. Then watch the device do it job.

But most of the other ultrasonic vegetable washer works differently. They have a cleaning chamber and washing basket with a removable cover that allows you to wash and clean lots of vegetables and fruits at the same time. Your veggies and fruits will be inserted into the chamber filled with water.

The basket can be removed and put inside a sink for use. After washing the items, you can drain the water through the drainer, so you don’t need to remove your items before draining the water.

Using this type also allows you to switch between modes when washing different items.

Generally, the cleaning can last between 3 to 30 minutes depending on the items been cleaned and the efficiency of the transducer. However, most cycles range anywhere from 3 to 6 minutes.
