Household Ultrasonic Cleaners: Portable and Effective
September 23, 2020
While cleaning and washing can be therapeutic for many, for some, it can be a daunting task; sanitising a particular object’s interior makes it a bit more challenging. But what if I told you that there’s a cleaning device that does the job for you without you rolling up your sleeves? With evolving technology, ultrasonic cleaners can be the answer to your problem, helping you ease the stress of cleaning your home and office. Here’s why. Ultrasonic cleaners are devices that can clean items/areas by removing harmful contaminants and unwanted residues that spray washing and brushing alone cannot remove. Thanks to advances in technology, ultrasonic cleaning machines have made cleaning a lot easier, safer and convenient. From cleaning small electronic parts, medical instruments like scalpels to objects made of glass, plastic, aluminium or ceramic, including jewellery—it can provide you with a thorough and delicate cleaning process. If you’re looking for the right cleaning machine companion, then look no further. Here at Wiltronics, we provide the best ultrasonic cleaning solutions for you! Check out our available products below. Wiltronics Ultrasonic Cleaners Ultrasonic cleaning is a powerful technique to remove harsh and diverse contaminants, such as oil and grease, polishing media, lapping abrasives, dirt, etc., without damaging your stuff. The Lab Ultrasonic Cleaner 60W comes with a powerful industrial 60W transducer that can blast dirt, grease and grime from even the tiniest of objects. It features a 2.5-litre tank that is large enough to contain objects, from spectacles, car parts, dentures to printer heads, precious stones and metals, and much more. The cleaner also has an inbuilt 100W ceramic heater to help shift more grime from surfaces. You can learn more about the product here. When it comes to cleaning delicate items, such as jewellery, hand-cleaning and using harsh chemicals (e.g. rubbing alcohol) can cause damage to the piece. For a more gentle cleaning, 30W Ultrasonic Cleaners can offer both thorough cleaning and a delicate process, an ideal pick for your jewellery and other precision instruments. Easy to use and mains powered, you can also use this ultrasonic cleaner for cleaning your watch bands, dentures, printer head, glasses, as well as coins and other small machine parts. All you have to do is to fill it with 400ml of water with a mild cleaning solution and let the mixture reach into narrow crevices and remove the unwanted residue while doing your other household tasks. Looking for a cleaner with a larger unit? Then you’ll love this 70W Ultrasonic Cleaner as it features a generous size 1.8-litre stainless steel bowl which illuminates blue when in use, and five panel mounted push buttons for easy operation. Moreover, it does a great job cleaning your jewellery, watch bands, dentures, razor heads, printer heads, coins, glasses, small machine parts and much more effectively. Features include five timer settings (from 90 seconds to 8 minutes), LED display, strong or normal power settings, and a defoam setting that cycles the cleaner for 5 seconds with 3-second intervals. Mains powered. As for cleaning solutions, most of the cleaners are water-based. For a faster cleaning process, you can use other cleaning solutions such as a water-soluble detergent. Opt for a solution that doesn’t have too much surface tension, ensuring that it can knock off dirt and hold it in solution. Check the ingredients and make sure the fluid is safe to use; avoid alkaline or acidic ingredients as much as possible. In addition, mix your cleaning solution well with water, and it should degas quickly. Degassing takes typically three to four seconds in portable ultrasound machines. If you’re looking for the perfect cleaning solution, our PCB and Parts Wash Cleaning Solution is an excellent addition to your cart. The ready-to-use solution removes flux and residue from circuit boards to provide an extremely clean and contaminant-free surface. It can be safely used in ultrasonic tanks for various applications including jewellery, metal parts degreasing and cleaning sensitive electronic parts. Suitable for both static and ultrasonic cleaner use.
