Everyone knows how much of a hassle cleaning can be. Regardless of if you’re scrubbing, spraying, using chemicals or heat, it always takes up a lot of your time and energy. Put your time and energy to better use and let ultrasonic energy do all of the hard work in a much faster, more efficient way! Ultrasonic energy utilizes controlled and high-magnitude pressure changes in liquids to provide you with the highest and most consistent level of cleanliness. It’s also able to get under those annoying unreachable places that standard washing techniques aren’t able to penetrate!

How to Clean Plastic Tool Models

  • Load the tank with recommended formula and turn on the heat
  • It’s important to make sure there isn’t any trapped air in the tool model. For best results, it’s crucial to wet all surfaces with liquid
  • Turn system on to enable ultrasonic energy
  • When the cycle is finished, take out the clean tool model and be sure to fully drain to remove all soils
  • Use clean water to rinse as best as possible and wet surfaces again
  • Use one of several methods to dry – evaporation, air-drying, or forced hot air

Equipment Recommendation

The Branson MH series is an extremely efficient series of units for providing high quality cleanliness for plastic tool models. It comes equipped with an industrial-style 40 kHz transducer and is almost brainless to operate:

  • Fill bath with the mixture of 10% Branson Industrial Strength (IS) solution
  • Turn on the heater and set up the recommended cycle time
  • No more worrying about dead zones – the Bransonic Model MH sweep will get rid of them and provide high level cleanliness every single time you use it
