What is degassing and why should I do it?


Degassing is the removal of gases present in the cleaning solution. Mains water contains a surprising large amount of air. It is essential to remove this air before effective cleaning can take place, as ‘useful’ Cavitation will only occur after removal. Degassing is simply achieved by running the ultrasonic cleaner after the cleaning fluid has been changed.  The time taken to degas the solution depends on the size of the bath and the hardness of the water, however, when the fluid in the tank is degassed there is a noticeable increase in the “cold-boiling” action.  It is essential to degas AFTER the cleaning solution has been added as degassing will not take place easily in water alone.
