Lately, we have been discussing using ultrasonic cleaners on a much smaller scale. Doing things like cleaning watch parts, 3D printing, guns, and jewelry. However, these machines are also ideal for much larger equipment, such as industrial maintenance equipment.
For those of you in this industry, you know how much wear and tear these machines take. You also know how dirty they can get each and every day. If these machines are not properly maintained, it dramatically impacts the effectiveness of the machines. This equipment is also costly, so lack of a good preventive maintenance program will mean the equipment will break down more often and reduce its overall lifespan. That, of course, means purchasing more equipment, more often, which impacts the bottom line of the business.
Who Uses Ultrasonic Cleaners?
You may be surprised to know that some of the largest companies in the world use ultrasonic cleaners to maintain their equipment. The military, auto manufacturers, NASA, and numerous defense contractors… all of them have uses for ultrasonic cleaners for preventive maintenance.
When you look at mass manufacturing today, virtually every machine used can benefit from ultrasonic cleaners. Conveyor belts, stamping machines, gears, motors, and compressors, just to name a few, all have many moving parts that must be broken down and cleaned to maintain the equipment. The higher the volume, the more often these machines need to be cleaned and serviced to ensure they stay in operation.
Imagine an operation like Amazon that allowed its conveyor belts to accumulate dirt and debris. How long before those machines break down? What about food processing plants? How about industries that are just plain filthy… we are thinking about the concrete business and sawmills, where dust and debris are flying around all day, working their way into various machine parts. In most of these cases, these machines must be broken down and cleaned regularly, which takes a lot of manpower in and of itself. If these machine parts were all cleaned by hand, you can just imagine how long it would take to get everything functional again.
Here is a quick video explaining how effective Omegasonics cleaners can be for industrial machine maintenance…
Why Are Ultrasonic Cleaners So Effective?
There are two reasons our cleaners are so effective for cleaning machinery even in the filthiest of environments. First, it is the cleaning process itself. Ultrasonic cleaners create microscopic bubbles that implode upon impact with a surface. These bubbles are able to cover not just the surface of machine parts, but they are also able to get into those impossible spots that hand-cleaning and even soaking do not always get. That is where the second part of the process comes in.
We have developed cleaning agents for virtually every environment imaginable. Those tiny imploding bubbles carry that cleaning agent to the machine part, ensuring every crack, crevice, and surface of the part is cleaned thoroughly, something that cannot be achieved with even the best spray washers.
If this sounds like something that could benefit your business, give us a call at 888-989-5560, and one of our experts can discuss the best cleaning options with ultrasonic cleaners for your particular industry and equipment. And, remember, if we don’t have a tank in stock, we can custom design one specifically for your business needs!
