132 kHz 6 Liter Ultrasonic
132 kHz 6 Liter
High frequency cleaning is a great way to improve your cleaning results. Higher frequency means smaller cavitation bubbles which can penetrate smaller features. This is great for getting even the smallest dirt particles out of the depths of record grooves. Another benefit is higher efficiency for removal of chemical contaminants such as release agent residues from the vinyl record pressing process. Higher frequency cleaners also run much more quietly than low frequency units.
Specifications of UC-8180L Cleaner:
Frequency: 132 kHz
Ultrasonic Power: 180W
Heating Power: 200W
Voltage: AC 110-120V 50/60 Hz
The UC-8180L ultrasonic comes complete with a basket for small items (in case you need to clean your carburetor between record batches...;-), and a stainless steel lid for preventing evaporation of the cleaning fluid when taking a break from cleaning records.
Combine 132kHz and 40 kHz cleaners for a dual-frequency cleaning setup:
Combine the 132 kHz cleaner with a standard 40 kHz unit for an audiophile grade dual-frequency cleaning setup based on the Pro System.
The motor unit of the Pro System can be put directly on the rim of a cleaner, i.e. the record stack can very easily be moved between cleaners while the records spin.
Why is dual-frequency cleaning superior?
The size of the cavitation bubbles depends on the cleaner frequency. Low frequencies produce larger bubbles, while higher frequencies generate smaller bubbles. Larger bubbles contain more energy but cannot penetrate small features. This means low frequency cleaners excel at removing large dirt particles and dust. The smaller high frequency bubbles contain less energy, but can penetrate the smallest features. They are ideal for cleaning the bottom of your record grooves and the removal of chemical contamination like release agents from the pressing process. This means that a dual-frequency clean covers the entire contamination range, and results in superior audiophile results.
