Efficient, affordable and environment-friendly ‘ultrasonic’ parts washing is now available to UK companies, following the launch of the Shockwave Pro 3000 series from Safe Solvents (www.safesolvents.co.uk
With a fill capacity of 300 litres, this operates by creating microscopic bubbles that “release localised energy upon impact with surfaces”.
Unlike hot washes, which have traditionally been limited to providing surface-based cleaning, this process blasts dirt away from the smallest of crevices, resulting in a thorough deep clean.
Capable of loosening stubborn grit, dirt and grease from a wide range of industrial and vehicular parts, the Shockwave Pro 3000 Series avoids the need to use high-energy ultrasonics or to heat up the cleaning solvent.
The machine can provide 3kW of cavitation cleaning power from a standard 3-pin plug, allowing the Shockwave to be used almost anywhere. Furthermore, no air supply or ventilation is required to operate the system.
Safe Solvents’ bespoke Ambient Cavitation Cleaning Fluid (ACCF) requires no heating and reduces the health-and-safety risks by using heated detergents.
The non-flammable and non-carcinogenic fluid also includes a rust inhibitor to help prevent oxidation of the cleaned materials.
As the Shockwave Pro 3000 is a ‘leave to clean’ system, operators only need to lower the parts into the cleaning solution and start the machine. The built-in electric lifting floor allows heavy parts to be safely lowered into the solution.
Tom Sands, founder and CEO of Safe Solvents, said: “Typically, ultrasonic parts washing has been the ‘go to’ solution for businesses with demanding cleaning standards.
“Using an alternative such as the Shockwave Pro 3000 Series, businesses of all sizes can access efficient, affordable and environment-friendly parts washing.”
