Why does ultrasonic cleaning cost so much, don’t you just put it in the tank and leave it?

Whilst we’re not always asked this directly, some of you may be wondering “Why does ultrasonic cleaning cost so much, don’t you just put it in the tank and leave it?” so we thought we’d shed some light on the costs….

Our costs are determined by several factors

  1. Size and weight of the item(s)
  2. Number of parts
  3. How dirty the parts are
  4. Packaging requirements

For one of our larger ultrasonic tanks, it costs roughly £500 for man and machine per day.  For each clean, we need to bear in mind how much chemical will be required, how many man-hours, and the power usage that will be required.

Some jobs are as easy as putting it in a tank for a few hours then shipping straight back out. For others, it requires constant work from multiple staff members. If items need to be individually packed at the end of the clean it will bump up the cost as this takes a lot longer and uses more materials.

We price each ultrasonic cleaning job individually using these points to assess how much work will be required.

For larger jobs, we will usually perform a trial clean before giving a final price as we can only fully gauge how a job will go once we have tried it out and found the correct method 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.

Martin Frings


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.

Tonia Parris


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.
