Dear Friends
i Just bought 360 liter ultrasonic cleaning machine to clean our very contaminated cylinder head and other engine parts, but the result is not like as we see on YouTube videos ,
so i just wondering if those clips are really true, Which part of our work is wrong? since we never seen that kind of cleanness on our automotive parts as we see on advertisement .
its very kind of you if you could help us about our problem ?
our machine specification : 360 liter / 3600 Watt ultrasonic power / 28 khz / bottom mounted transducers / power control - degas mode and automatic loading and unloading .
do you think the problem is our machine or we have to find a better detergent ?
do you use any kind of pre washing method before putting in your ultrasonic ?
how much time approximately do you spend for cleaning very contaminated engine parts on your machine? Photo

It looks like its working but these things are really slow. Keep running it until its gets as clean as you want it to be.

Take it to a shop to get vapor blasted. Well worth the money.

Be careful on the type of solvent you use, do some searching around you'll see where guys have ruined heads by dissolving the aluminum.

Pre power wash the large parts before doing the ultrasonic cleaning. Then use Dawn or Simple Green to do the final cleaning as both will cut the grease very well.

You can also ultrasonic clean the parts and then hit them with a soda blaster for the stuck on parts. It’s not coarse enough to damage any surfaces or do anything negative. It’s non-toxic and washes away with water. It’s also dirt cheap for a set up and media.

If you're not mixing gas, you're not haulin ass.
