    Single Phase XL Ultrasonic Cleaners – Now Available

    Have you ever considered purchasing one of our industrial grade extra-large Ultrasonic Cleaners, but the 3-phase power source is proving an issue?

    We have a solution – we now have availability on single-phase extra-large Ultrasonic Cleaners, which will still heat the circuits just like a 3-phase power source would do. If this is of interest, we have capacities of 57 Litres, 90 Litres and 99 Litres in single-phase options.

    These new single-phase XL Ultrasonic Tanks use a 16A 3-pin plug which can be wired into most single-phase domestic and light commercial premises where 3-phase wiring isn’t present, resulting in identical performance and operation to the 3-phase variants. As well as matching performance, this can also be a more cost-effective and straight-forward option, compared to running new

    Cleaning an Electrical Terminal in an Ultrasonic Cleaner

    A customer of ours purchased some replacement brushes for a Bosch Jigsaw online, however, when they arrived from China, the push on spade terminals was heavily rusted. Instead of receiving a refund, he decided to put our Ultrasonic Cleaner paired with our Oxidation Cleaning Fluid to the test and tried to remove the rust himself.

    Being only 3mm wide and 8mm long, the usual abrasive tools wire brushes and emery paper were impractical to use, so our customer placed them inside a beaker in our 3 litre Ultrasonic Cleaner. He also added 10% of

    Cleaning a Marine Engine Piston in an Ultrasonic Cleaner – Before & After

    We set up and ran a cleaning cycle on a very dirty Marine Engine Piston, which was sent in by a customer. They wanted to see how effective the cleaning results would be by using our Carburettor cleaning fluid, in one of our XL Ultrasonic Cleaners.

    We conducted a test and monitored the cleaning results every 10 minutes. The final result after 50 minutes cleaning was very promising and the before and after images speak for themselves. The picture shows that the built-up carbon, grease and dirty contaminants have been removed on the most part, allowing our customer to complete the inspection and rebuild saving valuable time.

    With this information, our customer was happy to proceed in purchasing a 288L tank and Carburettor cleaning fluid, knowing it would speed up and enhance their engine rebuilding service.

    For more information or to take part in a cleaning test, please contact our Technical Product Specialist on 01992 455925 or visit our website

    Celebrating the Chinese New Year 2020 – Year of the Rat

    Happy Chinese New Year to everyone celebrating the Year of the Rat, including our Chinese customers and staff at our Hangzhou, China office. To celebrate the Chinese New Year (also known as the Spring Festival), will be decorating our UK office with authentic Chinese decorations as well as some very tasty Chinese goodies in the staff kitchen.

    Did you know…. showering is forbidden on New Year’s Day and sweeping & throwing out the rubbish bin isn’t allowed before the 5th. This is to make sure you don’t wash away the good luck, however, there is a day before the Spring Festival dedicated to cleaning. This day is to sweep the bad luck away and make room for the good.

    On the other hand, there’s a day before the Spring Festival dedicated to cleaning.

    What’s your Chinese zodiac sign? Have a fantastic new year, or as they say in China, 新年快乐 (Xīnnián kuàilè).

    Another Fantastic Year at the London Model Engineering Exhibition

    Last week we exhibited at the London Model Engineering Exhibition at Alexandra Palace and it was yet another fantastic year. Not only were we able to meet some of our great customers face-to-face, but the exhibition saw the launch of our new M-SURE precision measuring tools range.

    Our stand was very popular across the whole weekend and visitors were able to get a hands-on first glimpse of M-SURE, with many of the visitors purchasing from our stand once they tried the metrology tools for themselves. More news will follow on the new M-SURE range which will be available on our website soon. It wasn’t just our measuring tools that were getting all the attention, we also had a lot of attention from our Cases and Ultrasonic Cleaners, which went down well with the model engineers that visited.

    Adhesive applied by Spray Gun - Cleaning Test Results

    The purpose of this cleaning test was to demonstrate the cleaning method and capabilities of the ultrasonic cleaning function, accompanied by our Flux Cleaner Solution.

    The Spray gun presented is contaminated with adhesive, which has settled and formed into a rubbery like substance that is stuck to the spray head, along with its components. As soon as cleaning started, the cavitation process could be seen in action, as some grime is seen lifting. At this stage, there were no visible signs of the adhesive lifting.

    After 5 minutes, the Adhesive had started to soften, although shows no signs of lifting. However after 10 minutes, 95% of the adhesive is still very much resident, but we found that the adhesive had softened to the extent that it can be brushed away. To test this theory, a paintbrush was used and successfully brushed
