How Do Ultrasonic Gun Cleaners Work?

How exactly does this work? With two processes known as cavitation and decavitation.

When setup correctly, your firearm and/or parts should be placed in a submersible basket included in your cleaning kit. Your gun cleaner should have the liquid cleaner mixture inside, in which you will lower items to be cleaned. Without any of these components, cavitation/decavitation cannot take place.

Cavitation is when vapor cavities form in a liquid by other forces. In our case, the vapor cavities are created by the energy of high frequency, (low pressure) sound waves traveling through our solution. As these waves created by the transducer, pass through the solution, they create heated bubbles we call cavitations.

The next step in the cleaning process would be the implosion of these cavitations, known as ‘decavitation.’ This is the most important part of the cleaning process because, the collapse of these cavities (energy and heat of their implosions), are what pull dirt, grease, and residue away from our contaminated parts. To get these voids to implode violently, high pressure is then needed from our transducers.

With continual cycles of the cavitation/decavitation processes, dirt and other elements are jetted away within just a matter of minutes. What sets ultrasonic gun cleaners apart from traditional cleaning is the ability for solutions to reach nearly every nook, cranny, and crevice on the surface of your gun, at a microscopic level. This provides for an unsurpassed firearm wash unattainable by traditional cleaning.

As you may or may not know, some cleaning solutions are water based, which could spell bad news to firearms if they are not cleaned, rinsed and dried correctly.  This is why some ultrasonic gun cleaner kits include lubricating solutions as well. These solutions are made to protect and lubricate your firearms after their wash. It is important that you follow your manufacturer’s instructions when dealing with these lubricating solutions as they may vary from model to model.
