7 Benefits of Veterinarian Ultrasonic Cleaners

Cleanliness and instrument sterilisation for veterinarians is just as important as the hygine standards used in hospitals, by surgeons and other medical professions. The state of your practice can sometimes literally mean the difference between life and death for a loved family member. 

So it goes without saying that it’s crucial to keep your various instruments and tools in the cleanest possible state, removing all contaminants and possibilities of infection during operation or just check-ups, like checking an animal’s temperature with a thermometre. Veterinarian ultrasonic cleaner is the best means to achieve the utmost sterilisation and cleanliness. 

Ultrasonic cleaners are quiet, simple to use and work by emitting up to 40,000 ultrasonic pulses per second. As each of those pulses hits the surface of your instruments, it provides a cleaning action for even the most complicated surfaces. The quick and intense action of the ultrasonic waves eliminates deposits which would be normally be immune and avoid the nebulization of the dead organisms which are generated by brushing the instruments to clean them.

Here are our top 7 benefits for using a Veterinarian Ultrasonic Cleaner

1. Veterinarian Ultrasonic Cleaners Provide A Gentle Clean

Those with years of experience in the veterinary industry will know that instruments and their various parts are becoming ever smaller and more delicate. Ultrasonic cleaners are able to remove contaminants without any scrubbing or high-pressure sprays and there is certainly no abrasion. That is why they are being used in a range of industries to clean everything from microchips to irreplaceable family heirlooms.

2. There Is Virtually No Veterinarian Instrument They Can’t Sterilise

Ultrasonic cleaners offer a level of flexibility that cannot be matched by any other cleaning system, which is ideal for veterinarians who are challenged by an almost endless range of contaminants. The ultrasonic cleaner will have no difficulty with the blood and other bodily waste that you come across most frequently, but it can also remove oil, grease, wax, shavings, dirt, dust, clay, sand, parting compound, soot, carbon, and oxidation. Size is also no barrier as microscopic particles are removed.

3. Ultrasonic Cleaners Consume Very Little Power

The complexity of other cleaning systems means they require a range of motors to pump, spray, circulate, agitate and capture the cleaning chemical that’s being used, along with its vapors. This can lead to very high power consumption. In comparison, ultrasonic cleaners use only one small motor to filter the solution, then all the cleaning is conducted with efficient electrical energy and transducers. This means that power consumption is kept to a minimum.

4. Veterinarian Ultrasonic Cleaners Are Remarkably Reliable

When comparing ultrasonic cleaners to other cleaning systems we are back to bearings, seals and electric motors that are required to keep the various pumps, agitators and fans in the other systems operating. As soon as one of those parts start to fail you are left without a cleaner, not to mention an expensive repair bill. Ultrasonic cleaners have very few moving parts, which means you can keep them reliably running for a much longer time. 

5. Ultrasonic Cleaners Use Varying Frequencies To Clean

The fact that the cleaning action in an ultrasonic cleaner is travelling through the air, coming from a number of different angles, means the entire surface receives an even clean. The pressure waves are also produced at varying frequencies, which increases your certainty that all possible contaminants have been removed. 

6. They Are Especially Good At Removing Mould And Bacteria

This is one of the biggest benefits for veterinarians and the reason ultrasonic cleaners are becoming ever more widely used in the medical community, not to mention the food preparation and processing industries. Removing mould and bacteria is essential for sterilisation and ensure your tools are ready for operations.

7. Veterinarian Ultrasonic Cleaners Are Environmentally Friendly

This is one of the benefits that is of particular interest to many veterinarians, most of whom were drawn to their profession by a love of animals and the environment. All the detergents used in conjunction with ultrasonic cleaners are non-hazardous and environmentally safe.
