Today begins my official life as a blogger. Since my company makes ultrasonic cleaning systems, and I am at heart a cut-to-the chase type of person, here we go.
Cleaning Without Solvents
Our clients buy ultrasonic cleaning units because they produce cleaner parts in less time, with less labor, and without the use of solvents. This, generally, all adds up to lower costs for our clients.
Regardless of the industry we are dealing with or the exact cleaning application, several if not all of these advantages pertain.
Our sales message can get somewhat redundant because in every industry, companies ranging from machine shops to disaster restoration companies to gun shops to musical instrument shops basically do the same thing. They have traditionally used a petroleum based solvent to degrease an oily, dirty part by soaking it and then scrubbing it by hand with some type of a brush. Pretty tedious and not very consistent. Imagine doing this for 8 hours a day-do you think the quality of your cleaning at 4 o’clock in the afternoon is as good as 9am when you are fresh. Hardly.
With an ultrasonic cleaning unit, the machine does the work consistently throughout the day in some type of water based cleaning soap. The labor required is basically loading a basket with the parts to be cleaned and dropping it into the tank and turning on the ultrasound. Scrubbing of parts ranges from almost nothing to not at all.
So that’s it in a nutshell. If you have a tedious parts cleaning predicament, ultrasound is very likely an answer for you.
