With an ultrasonic buffing process, the parts washer uses transducers to convert electrical energy to mechanical motion and directs that sound energy into the cleaning tank. The result is a cavitation bubble that implodes and releases a scrubbing effect on parts. The stainless steel cleaning tank measures 27" × 18" × 16". A hinged cover that provides access to the tank is designed to prevent the cleaning solution from evaporating during downtimes. A programmable cycle timer and heater are used to set cleaning parameters. The washer is also equipped with a built-in filtration/sparger system. This system is designed to prolong solution life by keeping the cleaning surface free of floating oils and contaminants and removing insolubles from the bath.
