Ultrasonic Parts Washers for Cannabis Processing Equipment

Cannabis production – whether undertaken using hydroponic equipment or other means – is big business these days. With profits on the rise, it’s essential that your cannabis equipment and tools operate cleanly and efficiently. Yet, the production of cannabis products in all their various forms creates algae, resins and other contaminants that coat tubes, hydro flasks, distillation equipment and other component tools.

To achieve optimal cannabis production that maximizes efficiency and profits, you need clean equipment. Until now, removing algae, resin and other contaminants from tubes, hydro flasks and other cannabis production tools meant hand washing that was strenuous, time-consuming and only partially effective.

Thankfully, for cannabis producers, there is a better way—ultrasonic cleaning for cannabis production.

What Is Ultrasonic Cleaning?

A basic ultrasonic cleaner is a cleaning device that uses ultrasound (usually from 20-400 KHZ) and an appropriate cleaning solution to clean items. The ultrasound can be used with just water, but use of an ultrasonic soap appropriate for the item to be cleaned and the soiling enhances the effect. Cleaning normally lasts between three and six minutes.

Ultrasonic cleaners can be used for a wide variety of applications, including plastic parts, bearings, bolts, rubber parts, internal parts, plastic injection molds, transmission parts and final cleaning of all engine parts prior to assembly.

Ultrasonic cleaning can clean contaminants that include dust, dirt, oil, pigments, rust, grease, algae, fungus, bacteria, lime scale, polishing compounds, flux agents, fingerprints, soot wax and mold release agents and biological soil.

How Ultrasonic Cleaning Works

Within an ultrasonic cleaning tank, ultrasonic cleaning uses cavitation bubbles induced by high-frequency pressure (sound) waves to agitate a liquid. The agitation produces high forces on contaminants adhering to substrates like metals, plastics, glass, rubber and ceramics. This action also penetrates blind holes, cracks and recesses. The intention is to thoroughly remove all traces of contamination tightly adhering or embedded onto solid surfaces. Water or solvents can be used, depending on the type of contamination and the part.

The versatility of ultrasonic cleaning machines makes them an ideal choice for cannabis equipment—particularly tubes, hydro flasks, distillation equipment, cannabis extraction equipment and associate component tools.

Why Ultrasonic Cleaning for Cannabis Production Equipment Over Hand Washing?

When it comes to hand washing, the name says it all—and the costs are substantial on several fronts:

  • Hand washing is labor-intensive; it physically taxes cannabis production employees who are charged with manually cleaning tools and equipment.
  • It is time-intensive; it takes time that could be spent on numerous other activities.
  • It is expensive; equipment costs may be minimal, but labor costs associated with manual cleaning add up quickly.
  • It’s not a consistent solution; some tools may end up very clean, while other tools may be extremely dirty, and hand washing alone simply isn’t enough to adequately clean them.
