Ultrasonic Cleaning Solutions and Rinses

It is essential to match the correct ultrasonic solution to the cleaning task. Each L&R cleaning solution is blended for a specific cleaning function.

There are several factors to be understood in order to optimize both cleaning economies and effectiveness: time, temperature and dilution ratio of the solution, combined with an understanding of the contaminant. By identifying these factors, one can choose the solution that not only does a thorough job, but also minimizes disposal problems.

L&R develops and tests each specially formulated cleaning solution in our laboratory to insure maximum effectiveness.

L&R solutions can be utilized in Ultrasonic Cleaning Systems, holding baths, mechanical parts washers and pre-soak procedures where appropriate.
