Anyone that has ever worked in a garage (or even on their own car, for that matter) can testify as to how dirty automotive parts can get. Trying to clean these parts using traditional cleaning methods often means the parts are not completely cleaned after a single pass, leading to lower performance or even more time spent cleaning the parts. For automotive shops, this can lead to problems such as longer turnaround times and dissatisfied customers. This makes this industry ideal for using industrial ultrasonic cleaning equipment.
Key Benefits of Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaning Equipment
Workplace Safety – in many shops, harmful chemicals are used to clean automotive parts. This can be dangerous for employees and harmful to the equipment itself. For inexperienced workers, combining the wrong chemicals can lead to the creation of hazardous fumes, and this does not even account for the possibility of the employees being physically harmed by the chemicals.
Ultrasonic cleaners use a water-based cleaning agent, NOT harmful chemicals to clean these parts. The combination of heat and imploding bubbles is far more effective and safer than using what many consider the industry standard, meaning chemicals, to clean automotive parts.
Reducing Operating Costs – in this particular industry, the cost of cleaning chemicals can get VERY expensive. Ultrasonic cleaning agents are both more affordable and more effective.
Reduced Labor Costs – paying a high-priced mechanic to clean parts for hours is not a very effective use of your payroll dollars, especially in this economy. The more time they spend cleaning carburetors and meticulous parts, the less time they are working on cars to get them back to customers. Using an ultrasonic cleaner is as easy as loading the tank and starting the cycle, allowing your mechanics to immediately get back to work doing what they do best… repairing vehicles.
Better for the Environment – there is a significant focus on the environment right now, and disposing of harmful chemicals used during the cleaning process is expensive. If the chemicals are leaked or dumped illegally, they can be devasting to the local environment. Because ultrasonic cleaners use water-based cleaning agents, these concerns are no longer relevant.
Quicker Cleaning – in some cases, auto parts can be cleaned in minutes instead of the hours it would take to clean them traditionally. This plays into the points of reducing operating and labor costs. The quicker the parts are cleaned, the faster your mechanics can repair the vehicles and get them back to the owner.
