Ultrasonic Cleaner Cleaning Fluids Temperature(s) Concentration
Versa 120 Wash Decoclean 440 70°C 5%
Versa 120 Wash Tap water 50°C 100%
Versa 120 Dryer N/A 70°C N/A

Process for cleaning chains:

Chain B was cleaned in the Decoclean 440, exactly the same as before with chain A but for an increased time. The chain had a total cleaning time of 1 hour. The chain was then rinsed for 3 minutes and dried for 10 minutes at 70°C. The increase in time showed good results. We advise filtration on the wash tank to prolong the life of the fluid.
