How does ultrasonic cleaner work?

UltraMax SOD, a robust industrial degreasing cleaner, is specifically designed for ultrasonic cleaning tanks. Its caustic-based, low-foam formula contains added corrosion inhibitors, making it highly effective for heavy-duty metal cleaning and degreasing tasks across various sectors, including medical, munitions, transport, and industrial manufacturing.

To utilize UltraMax SOD in an ultrasonic cleaning tank, we recommend diluting the heavy-duty degreaser in the ultrasonic bath at a ratio of 1-2% (1 or 2 parts solution to 100 parts water) and allowing it to work on 2-to-8-minute cycles. For heated applications, tank temperatures of up to 50 degrees centigrade are optimal. In cases of heavy soiling, we provide specific dilution rate information on the product bottles to ensure optimum performance.

How to use ultrasonic cleaner?

Using an ultrasonic cleaning solution like UltraMax SOD requires proper dilution with water. The dilution rates depend on the level of soiling on the components and parts, and we provide this vital information upon delivery. As a uniquely formulated heavy-duty cleaner and degreaser, UltraMax SOD works rapidly and efficiently on various materials, including ferrous metals, glass, and stainless steel. Its low-foam formula, designed for both hot and cold use, ensures effective cleaning without compromising material integrity.

What is ultrasonic cleaning?

Ultrasonic cleaning is a highly efficient and less labor-intensive method of cleaning, degreasing, and de-carbonising metal parts and components. With UltraMax SOD as the chosen ultrasonic cleaner solution, even the most stubborn deposits, such as metal working compound residues, oil and grease residues, storage waxes, foodstuff and fatty residues, inks, and dyes, are effectively removed.

The versatile formula also finds use in laboratories for cleaning various equipment and glassware. Additionally, the highly concentrated, low-foam formula contains built-in corrosion inhibitors, ensuring protection and maintaining the efficiency of cleaning equipment after leaving the ultrasonic bath.

What liquid do you use in ultrasonic cleaning?

For optimal results, we recommend using specially formulated cleaning and degreasing fluids designed explicitly for ultrasonic cleaning baths. With over 30 years of experience as a manufacturer and supplier of ultrasonic cleaners, we offer a range of ultrasonic cleaning and degreasing fluids. Selecting the right fluid for your cleaning needs is crucial, and our highly concentrated cleaners, like UltraMax SOD, dilute to 1-2% with water, providing cost-effectiveness and extended usage.

Does ultrasonic cleaner sterilize?

While an ultrasonic cleaner’s primary function is cleaning and degreasing, specific ultrasonic cleaning solutions can have sterilizing properties for the components and parts immersed in the ultrasonic cleaner. APT offers versatile, non-caustic alkaline cleaners and degreasers explicitly designed for cleaning components and parts in various sectors, including medical, aerospace, munitions, transport, servicing, and remanufacturing.

With low-foam formulations and added corrosion inhibitors, these cleaners effectively remove heavy soiling like oil and grease residues, foodstuff and fatty residues, inks and dyes, light wax, flux, and metal working residues encountered in manufacturing processes. The result is not only sterilization but also a thorough cleaning process, ensuring the components’ optimal performance.
