• What is ultrasound and how does it work?
    Ultrasound is energy in the form of a wave motion which is above the maximum level of audible sound. This energy is transmitted to the cleaning solution via a bank of transducers underneath the machine. The result of this process is termed capitations, tiny bubbles of vaporized liquid which explode when they reach a high pressure. Cleaning takes place as shock waves dislodge soil from the surface of the contaminated articles placed in the water bath.
  • How long do I need to clean the surgical instruments?
    It should take 3-5 minutes. Extended times are likely to re-deposit the soil removed back onto the instruments. Generally, it is difficult to establish guidelines due to the several factors need to be considered as follows:

    ‧ Wide variety of sizes, weights etc.
    ‧ Using appropriate cleaning solution.
    ‧ Overload the machine with unnecessary mass.
    "It is therefore wiser to start with a few parts so that they can be cleaned quickly and thoroughly.
    You can add additional parts and check to ensure the same cleaning results."
  • How often do I need to change water?
    When the water is heavily contaminated, it should be immediately replaced. Replacement of the cleaning solution is necessary at least daily (where the machine is used daily) or more frequently, depending on how many what types of parts are being cleaned in your ultrasonic cleaner. If the solution is excessively contaminated, it will cause a loss of ultrasonic cleaning power and possible damage to your machine.
  • How do I clean my ultrasonic cleaner?

    Use an appropriate suitable stainless steel cleaning powder if the tank is stained with marks. If the outer sealing compound is marked, wipe over with general purpose cleaner. If a scratch has occurred in the tank, use the finest available sandpaper and carefully polish out the scratch. Clean the tank regularly. After use, rinse out the tank and wipe dry.

  • Can ultrasonic cleaning damage my parts?
    With certain cautions, ultrasonic cleaning is considered safe for most parts. While the effects of thousands of implosions per second is very powerful, the cleaning process is safe since the energy is localized at the microscopic level. The most important cautionary consideration is the choice of cleaning solution. Potentially adverse effects of the detergent on the material being cleaned will be enhanced by the ultrasonics. Ultrasonic cleaning is not recommended for the following gemstones: opal, pearl, emerald, tanzanite, malachite, turquoise, lapis and coral.
  • Why must I keep solution at the tank’s level indicator?
    The solution level should always be maintained at the level indicator in the tank, with trays or beakers installed. The ultrasonic cleaning system is a ’tuned’ system. Improper solution levels will change the characteristics of the environment, can affect the system frequency, decrease effectiveness, and potentially damage the cleaner. Maintaining the proper solution level provides optimum circulation of solution around parts, and protects heaters and transducers from overheating or stress.
  • Why must trays or beakers be used?
    Items being cleaned should never be placed directly on the tank bottom. Transducers (which produce the ultrasound) are bonded to the bottom of the tank. Items resting directly on the tank bottom can damage the transducers and/or reduce cavitation. Additionally, a tray or beaker will position the item within the optimal cleaning zone of the tank. The tray or beaker will also hold the load together and allow for easy, no-touch removal, draining and transport of the items to the next step in the cleaning process.
  • What is the optimum cleaning temperature?
    Heat usually enhances and speeds up the cleaning process, and most detergent solutions are designed to work best at an elevated temperature. The best way to find the optimum temperature, which will give you the fastest, cleanest and safest results, is to run tests. Usually, the best results are within the 50 ℃ to 65 ℃ range.
  • What is the warranty?
    Our Soniclean ultrasonic cleaner is guaranteed for a period of one  year from date of purchase. Extended warranty period up to two years also available. Conditions apply.
  • What cleaning solution should I use?
    Modern ultrasonic cleaning solutions are compounded from a variety of detergents, wetting agents and other reactive components. A large variety of excellent formulations are available, designed for specific applications. Proper selection is crucial for acceptable cleaning activity and to preclude undesirable reactivity with the part being cleaned. Cleanosonic can help you to identify either the optimal ’stock’ cleaning formula, or likely candidates to test and evaluate.
