We sell a lot of ultrasonic cleaners to smaller businesses and end users who make up a very large part of our customer base. However, we also sell to some of the larger companies and organisations in the UK. Below is a selection of some Best Ultrasonic Cleaner customers we pleased and proud to have supplied.
A guide to making liposomal Vitamin C with an ultrasonic cleaner.
I should start by saying the subject of liposomal vitamin C (concentrated Vitamin C) is relatively new to me and I would not begin to discuss the scientific theory behind the process or any possible health benefits.
In the last couple of years, and especially since the start of the Coronavirus (Covid 19) pandemic, there has been a steady increase in sales of Ultrasonic Cleaners to customers who are using the machines to make encapsulated vitamin C. Therefore I thought it was worth adding some technical information on the ultrasonic cleaners used in this specialist process.
From conversations with our customers, it seems there are two elements that are vital to the process of making liposomal vitamin C. The first is temperature control and secondly is the timer that controls the length of time the machine is activated. Secondary functions such as degassing mentioned at: http://qualityliposomalc.com/process/index.html and I’ll explain this shortly.
About ultrasonic cleaner functions.
As the temperature control is crucial it would be best to buy an Ultrasonic Cleaner that has a digital readout and control. This is simply because the digital display shows two sets of information:
1). The actual temperature in the tank
2). The target temperature for the tank.
NOTE: The very action of the machine generating ultrasonic waves also produces a modest amount of warmth. This raises the temperature of the liquid and so with the digital readout, you will be able to monitor this. When making liposomal vitamin C, this is important.
With a digital model, the timer can be programmed for up to 90 minutes, whereas with a dial control, the maximum time is restricted to 20 minutes.
Degassing is available on some models and is an addition function which, after a change of solution or agitation of a solution, quickly removes any air from the liquid which makes the process more effective. This is useful when making liposomal vitamin C but not essential as air will over time, always rise to the top of a liquid naturally. Additionally, the power of the machine can be reduced by 50% if required. Degassing does however, add a bit more money to the purchase price of the Ultrasonic Cleaner.
Which model to select
The two popular sizes of machine normally selected are 3 Litreor 6 litre.

Cleaning your bike chain and gear cassette with an Ultrasonic Cleaner
When it comes to cleaning your cycle chain and gears, one thorough method is with an Ultrasonic Cleaner. We recently sold one of our professional machines to a customer who kindly sent us some “before and after” photographs. Cycle cassette cleaning is new to me but I’m sure there are lots of cyclists out there who will find the photos below of great interest.
How to clean your cycle parts
The addition of cleaning suitable solution helps breakdown oil and grease. The cleaning time is around 10 – 15 minutes. The machine used was a 6 Ltr ultrasonic cleaning tank with a digital readout for the cleaning cycle time and the water temperature, however, you might get away with a smaller 3 Ltr machine. You don’t need an all singing & dancing machine with lights and LED readouts. A simple tank with dials on the front will do the job just as well.
We are absolutely delighted to have been asked by the Mercedes F1 team to supply them with an ultrasonic cleaner. It was a fantastic experience to meet with some of the engineering team and discuss how we could help with a specific technical problem. At this level of engineering, size matters and it’s all about microns, not millimetres.
