HTM01-05 states that you should test your ultrasonic cleaner quarterly with test foil to validate the operation of the transducers.
Walker Electronics advise testing of multi-transducer tanks with this foil, however, on a single transducer tank we feel it is unnecessary. Here’s why…
On a multi transducer tank both the foil ablation test and the soil test will provide a different, but accurate assessment of the ultrasonic cleaners’ ability to clean and is therefore an essential part of the maintenance schedule.
On a single transducer tank it is Walker Electronics Ltd opinion that either a load test or foil ablation test alone will determine the efficiency of cleaning of the ultrasonic cleaner. If there were a fault that leads to a failure of the Protein test this fault would also have lead to a failure of the foil ablation test. Conversely, if there were a fault that leads to a failure of the foil ablation test this fault would also have lead to a failure of the protein residue test.
Walker Electronics Ltd are therefore of the opinion that the foil ablation test provides little or no benefit in assessing the efficacy of the ultrasonic cleaner WITH A SINGLE TRANSDUCER and therefore this test can be omitted from the service schedule of its model QC and Q105 units.
