Ultrasonic Cleaning Car Parts
Automotive ultrasonic cleaners and solutions for manufacturers, auto shops, and hobbyists.
Are you an industrial automotive manufacturing executive, a repair shop mechanic, or a serious hobbyist? Do you need to clean contaminated or greasy parts? Then the ultrasonic cleaning process is an excellent option for you.
Ultrasonic cleaning is a process that uses tanks, transducers, and cleaning solutions to remove contaminants from objects. Transducers create high frequency pressure waves that produce microscopic cavitation bubbles within a cleaning solution.
The bubbles can travel through blind holes, around corners and crevices, inside tubes, and even small, complex parts. When these bubbles implode on the surface of a submerged part, they produce a powerful scrubbing action that is nonetheless gentle on surfaces such as metals, ceramics, and plastics.
The entire process lets you effectively clean all sorts of contaminants and debris on all types of automotive parts, including carbon deposits, grease, sludge, oils, paint, and rust.
Ultrasonic cleaning systems are fast and effective, with numerous benefits over traditional cleaning methods.
That’s why industry-leading manufacturers and auto shops use Crest Ultrasonics precision cleaning equipment and highly effective Chem-Crest® solutions.

Our Chem-Crest ultrasonic cleaning solutions are crucial in effectively cleaning your car parts.
Different automotive cleaning scenarios require different chemical solutions, so it’s essential to know the chemistry of what you’re adding before use.
A general-purpose degreaser or soap-based detergent is often enough for lighter jobs. An alkaline solvent may be necessary to penetrate more stubborn deposits.
Time spent soaking is also important. Some jobs require five minutes, while others need half an hour.
