What type of detergent do you need to operate your ultrasonic cleaner and what do those detergents do?

Friday, October 31, 2008

Just like a dishwasher or washing machine, you will need ultrasonic cleaner detergents to get the most from your cleaning system. Every time the conclave cleaner is used, liquid detergent should be a part of the equation. This stuff is specifically designed to be gentle on the instruments themselves and is even made to be easy on the skin as well. That gentle feature is amazing considering that the detergent is also very good at dissolving everything from blood to saliva, and just about any other fluid the body produces.

Once again, much like the cleaning machines found in every home, there are times when an extra boost of cleaning power is needed. That’s when it’s a good idea to have an additive powder in your arsenal of weapons against the bio hazards. Additive powder is used to boost the cleaning power of the standard liquid detergent commonly used in the ultrasonic cleaners. It is intended to be used for really tough cleaning jobs. This powder helps to prevent the formation of rust and also works to dissolve the bodily fluids from the instruments as well.

What kind of durability can be expected from the ultrasonic cleaners and accessories?

Like everything else in a medical office, these machines and accessories can be expensive. The good news is with proper care and maintenance, these ultrasonic cleaners, covers, and baskets will last for quite some time. At the first sign of trouble, it’s best to call in a qualified repair company to ensure that the problem is resolved correctly. Naturally, the detergent and additive powder will need to be replaced on a regular basis, but your office can expect a long time of good service out of this kind of cleaning system.
