1900BTX cleaning unit
Omegasonics, a manufacturer of ultrasonic cleaning systems, has introduced the 1900BTX cleaning unit that features two cleaning technologies – a water agitation cleaning process and ultrasonic cavitation. Each operates independently to facilitate a more thorough, yet gentle, cleaning. The unit is especially effective for cleaning 3D prototype parts.
The 1900BTX is an enhancement to Omegasonics’ 1900BT, a 20-gallon, Plug & Play unit that is a hybrid between traditional bench top cleaners and portable floor models. The addition of the magnetic drive pump system in the new 1900BTX model allows for agitation, similar to a Jacuzzi, where turbulence is controlled so parts are not damaged. Inside the tank, circular flow helps dissolve the temporary support structure around the part. The flow and heat are both adjustable for different materials’ pressure and temperature requirements. Additionally, the water agitation tank features a directional spray nozzle that lets the user spray parts directly and precisely.
Ultrasonic cleaning generates cavitation energy inside the bath which creates its own internal pressure that dissolves the parts’ support structure using a non-hazmat cleaning detergent that speeds removal of delicate support material.
