Elma Ultrasonic Bath Baskets have two key functions for parts cleaning:
- Parts baskets keep products being cleaned from contact with the bottom of the ultrasonic cleaner tank. Otherwise severe damage and eventual leaking will result due to vibrations.
- Parts baskets ensure cavitation (cleaning) action is maximized by holding products at the optimum level above the tank bottom. This is why different tank dimensions call for correct basket specifications.
Most ultrasonic cleaner parts baskets are designed with an open mesh bottom of sufficient strength to hold products being cleaned. Do not overload your baskets by stacking parts in an effort to clean more parts at the same time. Best results are achieved when parts are not in contact with each other.
A variety of special ultrasonic cleaner parts accessories are available to handle special cleaning requirements. Examples include jewelry racks and racks to position printed circuit boards in the solution.
If you clean very small parts consider fine mesh immersion baskets that can be positioned in standard baskets or otherwise suspended in the cleaning solution.
