Omegasonics, manufacturer of ultrasonic cleaning systems, introduces 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 process. The unit is especially effective for cleaning 3D prototype parts, the company says.

The 1900BTX is an enhancement to Omegasonics’ 1900BT, the company says, a 20-gallon, plug-and-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 enables agitation, similar to a jacuzzi, where the turbulence is controlled so parts are not damaged. Inside the tank, the part flows circularly to help dissolve the temporary support structure around the part. The flow and heat are both adjustable because different materials are said to require different pressures and temperatures. In addition, the water agitation tank features a directional spray nozzle that lets the user spray parts directly and precisely.   

The ultrasonic cleaning process generates cavitation energy inside the bath, which creates its own internal pressure that dissolves the support structure for the parts. It utilizes a non-hazmat cleaning detergent that speeds up the process of removing delicate support material.

“By using both agitation and ultrasonic cleaning methodologies, 1900BTX users get the best of both worlds,” says Joe Gilbert, vice president of sales at Omegasonics. “3D prototype parts are cleaned more thoroughly and more quickly with less manpower. It’s a win-win, especially for 3D prototype part applications.”
