The main thing to know about ultrasonic cleaning is that you get what
you pay for. A good ultrasonic that will meet your ‘strong and rugged
for industrial use’ requirements is probably going to set you back
nearly or even over $1000. I’ve had good luck with L&R, my current
unit is almost ten years old (knock on wood…) and we use it hard.
Don’t underestimate the importance of using quality ultrasonic
solution. You’ll get all kinds of advice about how this or that
over-the-counter household cleaner works just as well as the $90 a
gallon stuff, but the truth is, they aren’t designed for use in an
ultrasonic and aren’t able to utilize the power a good one puts out.
A lot of times, what seems to be a poorly performing unit really is
working fine, but Mr. Clean isn’t. Don’t drop a ton of cash on a
quality ultrasonic and then go cheap-skate on the solution and then
blame the unit for poor performance or wonder why the new unit isn’t
working any better than the old one did.
I’ve worked with Dale at Lone Star before and have found him to be
very reliable, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Give him a call. He’ll
steer you right.
