Managing Total Cost of Ownership is instrumental when evaluating industrial ultrasonic cleaning options. Analyzing all the basic elements which affect cost either before or after installation is prudent.

While the initial investment of an ultrasonic cleaner can be higher than other options, the costs incurred after installation are much less than the manual washing processes; a reason why these ultrasonic cleaners have gained popularity in the recent past. Some basic factors worth considering include the following:

Labor costs

Investing in ultrasonic cleaning comes with considerably reduced labor costs. In most cases companies can see as much as a 10:1 reduction in labor. The operator ultrasonic cleaning machine can place the parts to be cleaned in the machine and then attend to other job duties.

Soaps vs Solvents

Soaps which are used in ultrasonic cleaning equipment play a significant role in reducing TCO. Most of these soaps are more affordable than industrial cleaning solvents. Moreover, there’s no fluid waste to manage when compared to manual cleaning processes.

Time

This is an important parameter in any industrial process. The fact ultrasonic cleaners are “self-cleaning,” human intervention is reduced dramatically. Employees dedicated to the cleaning process can be redeployed for other activities. The ultrasonic cleaning process is simple and employees can be trained quickly.
