There are going to be some jobs where you are obviously unable to use an ultrasonic cleaner, such as outdoor cleaning or furniture cleaning. However, there are many other instances where a power washer or spray washer are used where an ultrasonic cleaner can be far more effective. We want to take a look at some of these today.
Ultrasonic vs. Spray Washer
Can an ultrasonic cleaner be used rather than a car wash? Of course not, but it can be used in industries that currently use power washers, such as mechanics, and other spray washers, such as restaurants. These types of washers often require the complete breakdown of the part, and sometimes every require long soaks. Water usage is also significant, especially when you are talking about items like restaurant ventilation screens, which can get extremely gnarly with thick grease. In some cases, the outdoor connection for a spray washer does not even have a hot water option, making the cleaning all the more difficult.
At Omegasonics, our cleaning agents are water-based, so there are no dangerous chemicals being used. This not only saves you money on product, but it can also save on disposal and training of staff. Certain cleaning chemicals require certification just to be used, but that will not be the case here. Additionally, since you are not using expensive and dangerous chemicals, they will not have to be professionally disposed of after use.
One of the biggest advantages for a small business owner using an ultrasonic cleaner rather than a power spray washer is the labor savings. Let’s go back to that restaurant example. If they are cleaning grill screens, the employee has to be back there working on the screens the entire time. With an ultrasonic cleaner, the screens are loaded into the tank, the tank runs the cycle, and while it does, the employee can be off cleaning something else.
This would be true in any industry where handwashing or power washing are the norm. The fact your employees are being more productive is reason enough to invest in an ultrasonic cleaner.
Lower Maintenance Costs
Equipment runs more effectively and for longer periods of time when it is cleaned and maintained properly. There is also something else to consider… the damage that can be done to the equipment using a powerful spray washer and/or harmful chemicals. Those chemicals may clean great, but they are probably also wearing down the integrity of the equipment over time.
