Ultrasonic Cleaner Applications
How will you use your equipment? An ultrasonic cleaner is used for more than "cleaning."
Ultrasonic energy is employed for cleaning products that can be safely wetted in biodegradable aqueous cleaning solutions and, in laboratories, for solvent degassing, sample prep, emulsifying and dissolving difficult samples, performing chemical extraction and, yes, cleaning lab equipment.
In the broadest sense these units can be classified as benchtop and industrial ultrasonic cleaners. But like everything else in this world, there are exceptions. Some benchtop units are designed for industrial applications.
Simply differentiated, benchtop ultrasonic cleaner models sit on a bench or table. In general, cleaning solution capacities top out at 10 gallons.
Industrial ultrasonic cleaners, while available in benchtop configurations, are commonly identified as floor mounted units with capacities to 60 or more gallons.
Do you Need an Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaner?
Industrial ultrasonic cleaners, regardless of their cleaning solution capacity, are designed for continuous operation during, for example, an 8-hour work shift. For more on this please take the time to review tips on selecting an industrial ultrasonic cleaner on our sister company's website.
