  • $2,329.00


 The TradeQuip "Made for the Trade" ultrasonic parts cleaner makes it easy to clean items like carbies, calipers, nuts & bolts, most small metal parts - even jewellery. Just fill the cleaner with water, mix in a desirable ultrasonic cleaning additive (sold separately), set the timer and walk away to get on with another job. The ultrasonic cleaner works with or without heat and provides deep cleaning using ultrasound technology and water. The adjustable temperature and timer gives you a variety of cleaning performance options.

All TradeQuip "Made for the Trade" ultrasonic parts cleaners incorporate Lateral Oscillation Technology for fast and effective cleaning results. The internal basket system allows the lid to seal the working solution avoiding evaporation and reducing ultrasonic acoustic levels. The clear and easy design with compact and quiet operation make these products the market leaders. All TradeQuip tanks are manufactured from professional 304 grade 2mm stainless steel, with added thickness and increased corrosion resistance to alleviate problems associated with the use of citric acid. REGULAR CLEANING IS A MUST!  Failure to do so may void warranty. Electropolishing passivates stainless steel to a greater extent than any other process. It applies an invisible protection oxide fill on the surface which imparts a condition of maximum resistance to attack and corrosion. The tank is fitted with a convenient drain valve to empty and thoroughly clean any traces of cleaning solution and contaminants that are left over from cleaning cycle. This should be carried out at the end of each cleaning cycle and the tank be stored empty, clean and dry. 

Particularly useful for mechanical, panel repair, small engine, electronics, jewellery, metal parts, assemblies, optical, electronic tools, circuit boards and other high performance cleaning applications.

The TradeQuip "Made for the Trade" ultrasonic parts cleaner is the most effective and efficient method for object cleaning slits, grooves, deep hole, blind hole, surface cleaning, removing oil, rust, oxides, etc.


Please note: Dependant on the setting of your temperature, solution ratio and power level, a cool down period of up to 30minutes may be required between cycles. Dependant on your application, complete cleaning result and cool down period requirements will vary. To reduce cycle times, use hot water at around 50°C instead of cold water.

REGULAR CLEANING IS A MUST!  Failure to do so may void warranty. 

  • This unit is a technologically advanced piece of equipment.  This is not a Degreaser
  • This is not a Parts Washer.  Dirty Fluid & Sediment build up on the base of the tub will lead to premature failure of the Heating Element & Transducers
  • This unit requires emptying & cleaning between used to ensure the Heating Element & the Transducers can function as per specification

What is Ultrasonic Cleaning?

Ultrasonic cleaning is based on the cavitation effect caused by high frequency ultrasonic wave vibration signal in the fluid.  Microscopic bubbles are formed, and they implode violently causing the cavitation which creates an intense scrubbing action on the small enough to penetrate microscopic crevices, cleaning them thoroughly and consistently. Ultrasonic cleaning is extremely effective at removing dirt and grime which would normally require tedious manual cleaning by hand.  This unit can be used to clean a wide variety of instruments and mechanical parts such as carburettors, returning them to almost “like new” condition without damage to delicate parts.
