Ultrasonic cleaners come in a range of styles and sizes which are suitable for use in a variety of industries. This can make it hard to choose the right one for your specific application, so it's important to consider your decision carefully. Here we look at five of the areas you should be thinking about when purchasing an ultrasonic cleaner.
The Correct Size
The first element you need to get right is the size of ultrasonic cleaner you buy. You need to make sure that it's not too small for the number or size of parts you require cleaning or you won't get the full benefit from the machine. A cleaner that has a tank of between 600ml and 750ml is typically adequate enough, unless you need a professional-standard unit.
The next factor to consider is a machine that has the right power and frequency. This will depend on your particular needs. For instance, cleaning delicate items, such as jewellery, will need a higher frequency than a standard machine offers. Those units with lower frequencies will generally be louder, so this is important to remember.
The Ultrasonic Process
The process of an ultrasonic cleaner consists of the chemical concentration, the temperature of the bath and the unit's dwell time. The cycle time is also important to consider, as if you want a machine that needs minimal supervision you should go for one with a longer cycle.
Solvents and Chemicals
To remove all the grime and dirt from your items, your ultrasonic cleaner will need to use solvents or soap additives, as well as a water-based solution. For the cleaner to be as effective as possible, you need to ensure you're using the right solvents or cleaning solution for the particular model.
Use the Appropriate Accessories
With any ultrasonic cleaners, you need to have the right baskets or racks to hold the items being cleaned. Otherwise you could cause scratches or etches on the ultrasonic transducer packs if anything makes contact with them.
