    Customer Question: Will the Carburettor and Machine Parts cleaning solution damage neoprene seals and O rings?

    Read our Ultrasonic Engineer's reply to the customer's query below.

     

    Q: Will this carburettor cleaning solution damage neoprene seals, O rings etc? Is it totally safe to leave seals in place or is removal required prior to use?

     

    A: Over the years many different materials have been used to make seals and gaskets in carburettors, and we cannot guarantee that our cleaning solutions are safe to use on all of them.

    Generally, the rubber seals used are very robust to chemicals considering they spend their life in contact with petrol or petrol vapours.

    In an ideal world, we would recommend fully stripping down a carburettor and removing all gaskets, seals, and diaphragms before ultrasonic cleaning, this will give you the best chance of removing contaminants and getting into all of the cavity’s, crevices, and component parts then replacing all seals and consumable parts with new.

    Why you should be using Ultrasonic Tanks to steep your Vape liquid/ e-juice.

    Steeping your vape juice allows the ingredients (PG/VG, flavourings and nicotine) to mix together.

    This produces improved taste and aroma by helping the flavours blend and become more pronounced.

    The process of steeping is particularly important with DIY liquids, enhancing the flavours of the freshly made juice.

    Traditional methods of steeping involve letting the liquid sit for 2 weeks, which is why speed steeping methods like using Ultrasonic tanks have become so popular.

    You can achieve the same results in just 2 hours using the Ultrasonic Tank steeping technique, results have been identical in flavour and colour – making this an excellent time-saving hack!

    As well as flavour and aroma, the steeping process also evaporates traces of alcohol found in some e-liquids.

    Why use a basket for Ultrasonic Cleaners?

    Our Stainless Steel baskets are a crucial part of the Ultrasonic cleaning process.

    The baskets are included with all of our XL range tanks and sold separately in our standard range. We do recommend using a basket unless you have an alternative method of suspending your items within the Ultrasonic bath.

    This mesh basket will hold your Items whilst they are immersed into the cleaning fluid and are essential for the following reasons:

    It prevents the items from having any contact with the bottom of the tank, which could cause damage to the bath or Heaters and transducers below.

    Improves Cavitation efficiency of the clean as the cleaning fluid can circulate properly and ensure there are minimal blind spots.

    The handles on our smaller baskets overhang the edge of the tank and allow safe removal of items from hot water/ ultrasonic cleaning fluids. It also provides extra safety when handling objects like dental instruments etc.
