- ultrasonic cleaning
Method of cleaning metal or plastic parts by immersing them in an aqueous or solvent-based cleaning solution and imposing ultrasound energy on the bath to enhance cleaning by creating cavitation conditions at the part surface, which imparts a strong scouring action to remove tenacious soils.
Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics, a division of Cleaning Technologies Group LLC, introduces an innovation in cellular aqueous parts cleaning, offering a stainless steel GMC ultrasonic cleaning system. The GMC is an optional package to achieve chemical compatibility with aggressive caustic and acidic agents.
The GMC series comes in two sizes the GMC1818 and the GMC 3523. The larger can accommodate parts with one dimension up to 35 inches and weighing up to 125 pounds. Both units are completely self-contained, are supported on casters and operate from commonly available power supplies making them easy to move where needed for either in-place or utility cleaning.
Both systems include a pump and dual stainless cartridge filtration, a surface sparger, automated controls for heat, pump and ultrasonics, a lid and one standard basket. A drip pan (the open hinged lid in the case of the GMC 1818 or attached to the side of the tank in the case of the GMC 3523) allows draining one basket of parts while cleaning another.
