How many of you grew up putting together models as a hobby? Remember how frustrating it was when you forgot to clean the paintbrushes and they turned into rock overnight? Even if you let them soak, then clean them, they just never seemed as though they were as good as they were prior to that fatal mistake. You get older, and the cost of those brushes goes up, with some really good house painting brushes putting a serious dent in the wallet.
Whether you still put models together as a hobby, like to paint in your own house, are an artist, or have a painting business, there is a way to bring those expensive brushes back to life after every use. For a small investment in an ultrasonic cleaner, you will be able to keep those brushes looking and performing like new for many years to come.
What Is an Ultrasonic Cleaner?
There is a general misperception that ultrasonic cleaners are only used in industry. In fact, we sell many of our Omegasonics ultrasonic cleaners to small business owners, homeowners, and hobbyists. They can be used for cleaning anything from guns to auto parts to bringing your fine silver back to life… and yes, they can even clean paintbrushes.
Unlike any other cleaning machine on the market, our ultrasonic cleaners use sound waves to create cavitation that creates microscopic bubbles. These bubbles travel to the surface as well as every crack and crevice of the item in the tank. They then implode, carrying the cleaning solution to everywhere.
The key to successful cleaning with an ultrasonic cleaner is ensuring you have the proper settings and cleaning solution for the particular job at hand. For instance, you will use a different solution for cleaning oil and debris off auto parts than you would for cleaning paint brushes or restoring silver.
Cleaning Paint Brushes and Supplies in an Ultrasonic Cleaner
One of the more frustrating things about cleaning up paintbrushes is the mess and the time it takes to clean them. Additionally, it always seems to be that no matter how much time you take, there is always paint stuck in the roots of the brush. That will not be the case here.
Once one of our team members gets you set up with the proper cleaning solution and settings, all you will need to do is submerge the brushes and tools into the cleaning solution and turn on the machine. You can use a basket for smaller or more delicate items and submerge it into the cleaning solution. Once you turn on the machine, it will take less than 10 minutes to clean the brushes, depending on the particular item’s settings.
When the cleaning cycle is done, just remove the items from the tank/basket and thoroughly rinse them. Allow them to dry, and they are good to go for the next use.
