In addition to the use of a top quality cleaning agent such as Good Vibrations, it is recommended to routinely test the energy output of the transducers in the ultrasonic device. Effective energy output is essential along with good detergent action to produce desired cleaning results.
Testing may be done two ways: A) Use a commercially available test strip or device that demonstrates cleaning on an objective test piece. B) Use a piece of aluminum foil suspended cross-wise in tank full of solution. Run cleaning cycle and observe foil after a few minutes. There should be an even pattern of tiny dents all over the foil. Smooth spots indicate failure of transducer action.
