Many first time buyers of ultrasonic cleaners are unsure what equipment will work best for them. Selecting the right equipment is really just a matter of applying the correct criteria. Take a few minutes to read the info below, the Ultrasonic FAQ, and Optimizing your cleaner and you'll have all the information you need to make an informed decision.....
How big a tank do I need?
It might seem that all you need to do is measure your largest part and size your tank accordingly. Actually, a better route is to take a look at all your parts: If you are cleaning the same thing in every batch, or only deal with small parts, the choice is easy. But if you have a wide variety of part sizes and geometries, take a look at the mix. Are there just one or two large parts, and many smaller ones? It may not make sense to buy a larger system just for a few parts. Tank pricing rises rapidly with size.
Do I really need heat?
Unless you will always fill your tank with hot water, and refill it with hot water and cleaning chemistry every time it cools off, yes, you need heat. Ultrasonic energy moves best through water at a temperature betwwen 140 and 170 F. In addition, hot water helps dissolve many soils, further enhancing parts cleaning.
Do I really need a parts basket?
Maybe not. Remember that you don't want the parts resting on the bottom of the tank. This inhibits the transmission of energy through the water, as the transducers are mounted on the bottom. Some people with larger parts just make a simple stand or spacer to keep their parts off the bottom and it works fine.
What should I put in this thing anyway?
That depends on the part and the soil to be removed. Most common applications will be served by one of the chemistries offered here on our sight. Take a look at the chemistries page.
