How an Ultrasonic Cleaner Works for Shooting and Fishing Gear
- All the ultrasonic cleaners, irrespective of sizes and models, function on the basis of the same principle. It consists of a tank which is filled with a cleaning solution. An ultrasonic generator is used to generate energy that drives ultrasonic transducers attached at the bottom of the tank. On-off switches and timers are also general features of all models, however, some models offer solution heaters too.
To use the ultrasonic cleaner:
- Follow the instruction manual that comes along with the unit. Use the cleaning solution that is compatible with hunting and fishing gear and add it into the tank until it is filled. The ready-made solution available is concentrated and biodegradable; therefore, special disposal procedure is not required.
- Several components of dis assembled things such as rifles, pistols or reels which are used for fishing are first positioned in a basket of mesh or perforated tray which is then lowered in the cleaner.
- The bubbles, when come in contact with the contents of the basket, collapse with great force and blast away the dirt and other contaminants no matter if they belong in the smallest cracks or crevices or any other blind holes that are manually unreachable by soaking and scrubbing. This process of cleaning does not damage any delicate items and/or any delicate parts of any items.
- The process is fast and takes under 15 minutes in total. This can also be controlled using a timer. Once the cycle of cleaning is complete, the components are rinsed water after which they are lubricated and assembled again after drying.
