How to Degas Ultrasonic Cleaners 0

Today we’re going to be talking about de-gassing, what it is, and why you need to do it to get the best performance out of your ultrasonic tank.When you fill your tank with fresh cleaning solution, that liquid has a lot of air trapped in it. So long as it’s in there, you’ll be using ultrasonic energy to drive it out – instead of cleaning your parts.
