Maintaining a regular engine is hard enough, but introducing the marine environment into the equation makes that task far more difficult. We are starting to see a significant shift in the industry to start using ultrasonic cleaners, a method that is far less time-consuming than manual cleaning and is far more efficient and effective.
Harnessing Technology for Deep Cleanse
The cleaning process that ultrasonic cleaners use has changed the industry as a whole. Our machines create ultrasonic waves, which in turn create microscopic bubbles, but even the size of the bubbles can be changed depending on the job at hand. These bubbles then travel to every crack and crevice of the item in the tank, imploding upon impact, dislodging salt, dirt, debris, and other contaminants, while also carrying the cleaning solution to that area.
Benefits of Ultrasonic Cleaning for Marine Engine
Superior Cleaning Efficiency
If you have ever cleaned a boat engine by hand, you know how tedious and difficult this work can be. There is the additional problem that manual cleaning methods often use abrasive cleaners and tools that can damage engine parts… that is not the case with an ultrasonic cleaner because the bubbles and detergent do all the hard work.
Time and Labor-saving
Time is an expiring commodity, and we can never get it back once it is gone. Be it time spent away from family or the business to clean the engine parts or just downtime for the boat, every second you get back means a better quality of life or more money for your bottom line. Either way, you are benefitting from having an ultrasonic cleaner.
Safety and Environmental Friendliness
Omegasonics uses water-based detergents, which are far better for the environment than dangerous chemical cleaning agents. Today, this is a driving point for many businesses, so you can tout your company as eco-friendly simply by changing how you clean your engines.
Enhanced Engine Performance and Lifespan
The harsh marine environment translates to excessive corrosion and wear on critical components. A regular preventive maintenance schedule means you can extend parts and equipment simply by maintaining them regularly to ensure the salt water and air do not wreak havoc on your equipment.
Yes, ultrasonic cleaners can be more expensive than buying chemicals and continuing to clean your marine engine parts manually, but, unlike manual cleaning, this investment will eventually pay you back. For instance, if you have an employee dedicated to cleaning these parts, they can be assigned elsewhere or allow you to decrease the cleaning schedule.
Additionally, by extending the life of the equipment and parts, you have less maintenance and replacement costs, also adding to your ROI. You will be surprised how quickly you recover the cost of this machine.
