If you are like me, the average Bic pen is just not going to do it for you. Fountain pens are almost a status symbol for some people with their elegant designs. However, as much as people love using fountain pens, they can clog and are quite difficult to manually clean. If you want the pen to write properly, it means regular cleaning, especially of the nib. Ultrasonic cleaning offers a very effective and quick way to maintain these pens.
Deep and Comprehensive Cleaning
Penetrating Precision – Residue from the ink will start to accumulate in just about any opening of the pen, and it will sometimes clog the nib, rendering the pen useless. Ultrasonic cleaners use microscopic bubbles, which can penetrate all of these areas, dislodging and blockages that would prevent the pen from working properly.
Nib Protection – For finer writing instruments, the nib can be very fragile, so you have to be especially careful when cleaning this part of the pen manually. An ultrasonic cleaner completely removes that concern.
Efficiency and Speed
Simultaneous Cleaning – As with anything we discuss using an ultrasonic cleaner, it allows you to save time and money when cleaning these instruments. What could sometimes take hours is literally done within minutes.
Safety and Longevity
Minimized Chemical Usage – One thing you want to keep away from delicate parts is any type of chemical that could break down the different parts. Since we used water-based cleaners, that is not a problem in terms of protecting your equipment.
Extended Pen Life – If you take care of something, it lasts longer, which includes your high-end fountain pen. A Montblanc pen can sell for more than $1,000. A Visconti pen sells for about $700. And if you are really looking to spend some money, a Caran d’Ache can sell for over $11,000, so, yes, you need to take care of them, and taking care of them extends their life. If you shell out that kind of money for a pen, an ultrasonic cleaner is a must.
Lesser Need for Repairs – Some of these expensive fountain pens are no different than expensive cars or watches. Replacement parts and maintenance can be quite expensive, which you can avoid with a regular PM schedule for the pen.
