If you are considering buying an ultrasonic cleaner, there is no need to buy more than you need. By this, we mean buying a huge tank when a small tabletop unit will more than suffice. Whether you are a small business owner or a hobbyist, use our quick references below to decide how big of a tank you need. Additionally, you can always consult with a member of our team.
Tabletop Ultrasonic Cleaners – these units are much smaller than floor units and can be moved around very easily. Their portability is what makes them very attractive, even for businesses such as a garage or jewelry cleaners. The machine can easily be moved from station to station as needed.
These units are as small as a .75-gallon tank all the way up to eight-gallon tanks.
Some of the more popular uses of tabletop units are small gears, jewelry, surgical equipment, restoring silver, and small automotive parts, such as carburetors.
Benchtop Ultrasonic Units – These are a small step up from the tabletop units and are more popular in industrial service. They generally hold between 10 and 25 gallons in the tank. These are rugged machines designed to withstand continuous use. They are ideal for businesses that need a larger unit, but that does not have the floor space to commit to a full-sized unit.
Some of the more popular uses for benchtop units are power sports shops, auto shops, and gun cleaners. Think of just about any business where heavy grease must be cleaned off equipment.
Full-size Ultrasonic Units – These units range in size from 25-gallon tank all the way up to 100-gallon tanks. These are primarily used for industrial cleaning capabilities. As with benchtop units, they are extremely durable and built for continuous use. They are very popular in the aerospace industry, machined parts, large motors and engines, and just about any other hard-to-clean industry you can imagine.
