Solvents used in industrial applications such as paint stripping and precision cleaning used to be considered the cutting edge of cleaning technology. Now, however, there is a growing and well-founded concern about the effect of solvents on human health and work environments. [Read more…]
Finding the right detergent is vital to your industrial or precision cleaning operation. The right ultrasonic cleaning detergents should clean dirt and grime adequately without damaging the object being cleaned.
Why Use Ultrasonic Cleaning Detergents?
Chemically speaking, a detergent is a surfactant, a chemical compound that lowers the surface tension of a liquid when dissolved within it. This decreases the hold that grime and dirt have on objects, as well as increasing the power of ultrasonic waves. Surfactants also make ultrasonic cavitation more effective, increasing ultrasonic cleaning power even more. [Read more…]
Ultrasonic cleaning provides a more efficient, cost-saving and thorough way of cleaning industrial and precision parts of all types of objects. It’s done through the use of ultrasonic cleaning units, which generally consist of a few basic parts: a tank, a generator, and transducers, plus other components that make the whole thing run smoothly.

For larger cleaning operations which require an “assembly line” process for cleaning, Omegasonics recommends using one of many multi-stage ultrasonic cleaners. Examples of such cleaning applications include components that not only need to be washed, but also require a clean water rinse or multiple rinses to eliminate all residue followed by a finish dry. Obviously, this scale of operation needs far more than a single tank ultrasonic cleaner, especially when there is a need for rapid response and profitability on the enterprise. [Read more…]
Power sports, such as motorcycle racing, jet skis, and bobsled riding, can be rough on the components of these machines. Over a season of hard use, maintenance needs to be done, particularly on carburetors. Since an engine really only needs fuel, air, and spark to live, and the carb is responsible for two-thirds of that equation, many motorcycle and other power sport vehicle engine issues stem from this vital part. Yet, it’s also a hard part to clean with traditional methods. Enter the ultrasonic cleaner. With an ultrasonic cleaning unit and the right detergent, a business that services power sport vehicles can move from hours of tedious labor with dangerous chemicals to a smooth and thorough cleaning operation accomplished in a fraction of time and for a fraction of the cost.
