Crest Powersonic P230 Ultrasonic Cleaner
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Does this Stainless Steel Auxiliary Pan for Crest CP230 fit inside the CP230D unit or sit on top? Will it work in my old 275HT? Also, is there a slightly larger version of this unit that uses a perforated basket instead of a mesh basket?
Hi there! The Aux pans all sit on top of the cleaner. (The CP230 accessories fit the older Tru-Sweep 275 machines as well.) The Aux pan that Crest makes are different from most solid trays you see made for ultrasonic cleaners. Crest welds an L bracket onto each end that overhangs the edge of the tank. This prevents the tray (aux pan) from going more than an inch or so into the water in the tank. They do this because this way, you can clean two different items in two different solutions at once - one in the pan, and one in a mesh basket inside the tank itself. You could also clean one part and lubricate another if you like. There are multiple sizes of tanks - all of the Crest CP series machines use both mesh baskets and perf baskets, and there are Powersonic accessories for each of the older Tru-sweep tanks as well.
