Re: ultrasonic cleaner- how much power you need?

We have 3 units...
1x c.100'ish W
and the big tank at (somewhere about - we were told when I bought it
.... but can't be certain now) c.300-350W --- powerful/'loud' enough to
need to be housed in a separate room which you don't go into when it's
running if you want to keep your fillings intact and your eyeballs in
(actually it isn't as 'powerful' as you might expect because it has a
big tank to work with).
We also have the ultrasonic built into the automatic watch cleaning
machine first bath ... but I don't know what power that is ... I
suspect only about 30-40W
The more important thing is the chemicals you are using.
Even a 50W should clean the plates (although I am not too sure what
sort of watches you are dealing with that have "stubborn sludge" in
them) provided the correct choice of fluid is made.
In fact on my screen just now as I type this there is a 'Sponsored
Link' showing at the right hand side for 'alconox.com' .. they
advertise a range of cleaning fluids far almost any situation. Perhaps
the problem is your fluid rather than the power of your unit. The
apparent 'power' output of the transducer(s) will only be relavent for
tanks of the same size. For example our big tank is roughly a 450mm
cube ... and yes it is about 300-350W but that wattage is effecting a
much larger volume. Our small jewellery unit may only be 55W but it's
tank is a relatively tiny little drum with a radius of only about a
tenth of one side of the big unit (45mm) and a working depth of about
If your tank doesn't appear to be cleaning properly... then I would
examine the fluid first. (Then I'd ask myself ...is the task I am
asking it to do 'reasonable') these are like any other tool, built for
a purpose; and if you have 'sludge' in the watches perhaps you are
expecting too much of the unit?
