An ultrasonic booster is a device that is used to amplify the amplitude or power of ultrasonic waves. Ultrasonic waves are sound waves that have a frequency above the range of human hearing, typically in the range of 20 kHz to several megahertz.
Ultrasonic boosters are typically used in ultrasonic cleaning and welding applications where the ultrasonic waves are used to break up and remove dirt and contaminants or to fuse two materials together. In these applications, the ultrasonic booster is placed between the ultrasonic transducer, which generates the ultrasonic waves, and the workpiece. The booster amplifies the ultrasonic waves, allowing for more efficient cleaning or welding.
Ultrasonic boosters can be designed in a variety of shapes and sizes, depending on the specific application. They are often made of materials such as titanium or aluminium, which have high acoustic transmission properties, and are designed to be resonance-matched to the frequency of the ultrasonic transducer.
