The following is a list of various Do's and Don't when using our ultrasonic cleaning baths.  This list is NOT exhaustive.

  • DO use the correct fluid for your application
  • DO NOT use water alone in the tank when operating the unit as a wetting agent is required for correct transference of ultrasonic energy
  • DO NOT operate the unit without fluid in the tank filled to the correct level.
  • DO keep the tank free from large amounts of sediment.
  • DO NOT drop the unit or experience it to shock or impact.
  • DO NOT immerse the unit in water or any other liquid.

  • DO NOT place your hands in the fluid while the unit is operating
  • When using any cleaning fluid please read the directions before use. COSHH data sheets are available for all Walker Electronics Limited fluids here
  • DO NOT pour very hot or boiling water into the tank as this could cause damage to the transducer
  • DO keep the lid on during use and at all other times when feasible. This will prevent splashes and reduce evaporation of the fluid

  • After long periods of operation the top of the tank and fluid may get warm. This is quite normal.
  • No maintenance is required. To clean the case and tank wipe with a lightly oiled cloth
