How can we choose the number of wire-ring of the primary and secondary of the transformer to get the maximun Frequency of the Tranducer?
Pls help me!
(Show me some website related to this one is OK)

Look at Blocking oscillator in Google.
Most circuits oscillate at only 400Hz which is too low.

I made a 'joule theif' earlier in the week, it's a simple blocking oscillator and it's running at around 50khz

But can you show me something more detail? Let's consider that the frequency is about 50khz. But how could we choose the number of wiring for the Primary and Secondary of the transformer to get that frequency?
Pls show me something more! Thanks

More turns means more inductance means slower frequency. The transistors capacitance and the inductors inductance at the operating current will determine the ultimate frequency this is generally something you guess at, if you need a sepcific frequency there are better oscilators.

You mean that "if the turns is higher then the frequency is lower"? So how could we know that where is the best of the turns?

250? No it was about 50k.
It was approximately 20 turns of 30 gauge wire wrapped as two stacked coiles on a toroid.

The Joule thief has a 1.5V battery and has an output power of about only 0.0075W. It uses a low voltage, low current little transistor.

Your ultrasonic bath circuit uses a 323V supply (the 230V mains rectified) and has an output power of maybe 7.5W or more.
Its 2SC3688 big power transistor is used to make the horizontal deflection and high voltage in a colour TV and is rated at 1500V, 10A and switches very fast.

Your transformer probably has a ferrite core, has very low capacitance and is probably a voltage step-UP type.

Edit: The schematic of an ultrasonic cleaner circuit is in Google. It uses a high voltage, high current and high power transistor and a transformer with a ferrite core. it recifies the 120V mains to make a pulsing 169V supply. The schematic is in old text:

audioguru, not suitable for an ultrasonic bath obviously but the joule thief I made puts out 50ma's into a diode with 3.1 volt drop, that's 150mw's.
