Ultrasonic Cleaning 101

Cleaning & Maintenance

Ultrasonic cleaning machines contain unusual technology, and they require a certain amount of care and maintenance to ensure their effectiveness, efficiency and long life. It is best to consult with a machine’s manufacturer about ongoing care and any long-term maintenance and repair services available through the company.

Where the machine is to be located in any facility is an important consideration, especially if it is to be used in an industrial application. Warehouses and manufacturing facilities can include a lot of temperature variation and numerous environmental factors that can affect the ultrasonic technology.

Ideally, generators should be self-contained in the ultrasonic cleaner equipment housing to protect them from the environment and to keep coax cables from being exposed. Exposed coax cables are often damaged when tripped on, cut or run over by forklifts, which could result in damage to the generators.
