Just about every industry in existence needs cleaning equipment… but some require far better than others. For instance, an accounting firm will have the basic cleaning supplies, but a CPA will hardly put as much thought into his cleaning supplies as someone in the filter cleaning industry or the pharmaceutical industry. It is those individuals in the latter group that we want to address here today.
Why Use Ultrasonic Cleaning Equipment?
One of the first factors generally considered when buying big-ticket cleaning equipment is price. However, far too many business owners get stuck on the sticker price of a piece of equipment rather than the long-term costs associated with a product. Some of the most important factors on this front are cleaning costs as well as wear and tear on the equipment that leads to replacement. What if we told you industrial ultrasonic cleaners could get even the dirtiest equipment cleaned (in most cases) with a single pass rather than having to run them through a machine over and over again? Would that pique your interest?
Well, these are but a few of the benefits of using ultrasonic cleaning equipment. Here are just a few examples and how ultrasonic cleaners are a far better option.
Filter Cleaning Businesses
Whether you own a filter cleaning business or need to clean filters regularly as part of your business, you probably already know this can be a rather expensive process. Filters themselves can be a bit costly, so you want to have them cleaned effectively, but you also need to ensure they are not being damaged in the process.
Some companies/businesses will use power washers to get their heavy-duty filters clean, but this can sometimes damage the filters and still may not get them entirely clean. Soaking, powerful chemical solvents, scrubbing… these are all things that can either leave the filters dirty or actually damage the material, thereby making the filters less effective or outright unusable.
Some of the most common contaminants caught in these types of filters are:
- Metal shavings
Ultrasonic cleaners are able to get deep inside these filters to clean every crevice because of cavitation. In its simplest terms, this is the process where vapor bubbles form (in ultrasonic equipment, these bubbles are created by the ultrasonic waves), then implode, removing surface contaminants from the parts being cleaned. Think Scrubbing Bubbles on steroids. Your filters (or your client’s filters) are immaculately cleaned with no damage or wear and tear.
The pharmaceutical industry is yet another industry with every expensive equipment that needs to be cleaned immaculately on a daily basis. Traditional cleaning in this industry can be quite costly, with many hours of downtime if the equipment is not properly cleaned. Ultrasonic cleaners work quicker and far more efficiently than an individual is capable of doing.
And, just as we mentioned above, because this cleaning equipment uses water-based cleaning solutions, it means less exposure to harsh chemicals that can break down equipment over time, not to mention the cost of PPE equipment and the dangers associated with using such harsh cleaners.
Also, consider that because the equipment will be better maintained, you will be prolonging the equipment’s overall lifespan, all of which means more money to your bottom line.
