How should I choose a cleaning solution
There are various formulations of ultrasonic cleaning solutions available in the market today. They are made from surfactants, various types of detergents, and substances that store energy and create reactions. Because there are different formulations of cleaning solutions, it is a must to carefully choose which cleaning solution to use. Choose a cleaning solution based on the items to be cleaned and the type of cleaning that needs to be done. By doing this, adverse reactions between the solution and the items can be prevented.
The cleaning solution has to be compatible with the material that the item is made of. In cleaning medical tools, a cleaning solution with neutral pH should be used. In industrial cleaning, stronger cleaning solutions have to be used. But if soft metals such as aluminum and copper are to be cleaned, the cleaning solution should have low a pH. That is because soft metals are prone to cavitation erosion. You may also use petroleum-based and terpene-based cleaning solutions. To be able to use them effectively, you may have to increase the ultrasonic frequency.
