Knowing what you need is the best way to getting the right cleaner. It won’t do you any good if you go straight to a shop but don’t have an idea of the needs you are trying to meet. Consider these three large ultrasonic cleaners, to meet your specific cleaning needs. We also reviewed other industrial level cleaners here.
This Kendal unit is something really worth checking out because of the big space that it has for your dirty items. The container inside can hold 21 liters of water, but of course, you don’t fill that all up with water, leaving no space for dirty items. It will overflow if you do that. It is safe to say that you can fill it with 18 liters and then put the dirty items next.
Consider also the frequency of use because if you plan to use it frequently, you will have huge spikes in your electric bills. This unit is a 780-watt unit, with 300 watts allocated for heating and the rest for cleaning. You have 99 minutes of cleaning time each time you operate it and the temperature is maintained at 56o C after you turn off the heater.
In summary, this is a powerful cleaning machine, but a little pricey and not the best in terms of energy consumption. It’s good for business settings like a dental office where cleaning tools is often done.
With a 40-60oC range of temperature setting, this 300-watt unit is a good alternative to the larger unit above. If the items you need to clean are small like bullet cases, this can be a perfect choice. Interestingly, it produces almost the same magnitude of power for cleaning.
Its tank measures a little over 400 cubic inches in volume and the longest item that can fit inside is 14.3 inches. You get the same cleaning power for a price that’s hundreds of dollars less than the price of the above unit.
X-Tronic 2200-XTS 2.0 Liter “Platinum Edition” Commercial Ultrasonic Cleaner LED Displays, Sweep & Degas Controls
Then you have this X-tronic model, best known for its “degas” and “sweep” functions. It is the smallest cleaner in this list, being able to hold only up to 2 liters of water. It is also the one with the lowest power consumption, which suggests that its cleaning power may be much lower than the ones above, and therefore might not be as efficient.
However, it is equipped with a sweep function, which means that it is able to produce different frequencies of cleaning waves during its operation. There are frequencies that deviate from the “center” frequency, contributing to better cleaning results.
This model also has a degassing function, which means it prepares the solutions you will use to function more effectively during the actual cleaning process. You may also consider its affordability, being the model with the lowest price among the three and coming equipped with a stainless steel cleaning basket, wire rack holder, and wire beaker holder.
