Is it just water used in Ultrasonic Cleaning?

In short, we do use water, but it’s mixed with a cleaning agent. How much so is dependant upon the item you’re cleaning and the contaminant you’re removing. Different ultrasonic cleaning chemical manufacturers give their own guidelines on what concentrations should be used which varies.

Typically our ultrasonic cleaning solutions are mixed at 10% cleaning solution vs 90% water. For some tougher cleaning jobs the concentration may need to be increased. This is usually done through trial and error to find the perfect balance.

Other ultrasonic chemical suppliers and manufacturers sell a pre-mixed solution that doesn’t require any further dilation and also some others that use a 1:1 dilution ratio.

When selecting a cleaning chemical, it’s always advisable to trial it first to avoid any unwanted reaction. Ensure that you carefully read the applications section of the label. Each supplier should be able to give you clear guidelines on proper usage of the solution and what ratios to use.

What Our Customers Say About us

We approached Sonic Solutions after our parts manufacturers let us down and wasted precious time by supplying oily parts. Not only were they friendly, helpful and happy to rush our parts through - the quality was unbelievable! They arrived back at our factory just in time to not hold up production and we couldn't recommend them highly enough.

Our company AssetCool found the entire team at Sonic Solutions to be responsive and incredibly supportive of a new project. Their technical knowledge is superb, and they delivered exactly what they promised. We're very happy to recommend them to anyone with ultrasonic cleaning needs, and look forward to working with them again in the future.

I reached out with a problem to various companies prior to talking with Sonic Solutions, most were unhelpful. These guys insisted on the first trial being for free! The job was excellent and the turn around time very impressive. We are now setting up a monthly cleaning regime with them. A joy to deal with.
