Here, Darren Pyke, Managing Director at Hilsonic, offers an overview of the benefits of ultrasonic cleaning for pharmaceutical and medical clients – where cross-contamination can prove a significant issue – for safe batch production and for cost reduction. In this example, the client is an international, blue-chip, pharmaceutical company who sought a more thorough and safer alternative to manual cleaning, and turned to Hilsonic for a solution.
Professional restoration companies and classic car and bike owners are all too aware of the importance of the thorough cleaning of engine parts for better performance and of the associated problems when restoring and maintaining engines, especially when replacement parts aren’t always easy to come by. Prolonging the life of existing parts can be crucial, requiring intensive – yet safe – cleaning.
Older engines, especially, are prone to carbon build up – reducing the air flow and causing running problems – as well as often having layers of burnt oil that can be very difficult and time-consuming to remove. Ultrasonic cleaning is known to remove all manner of oil, grease, rust, paint, lubricant and dirt.

On 25th March 2017 a gas explosion in New Ferry destroyed several buildings and left a number of business premises badly damaged. A cordon remains around the blast site and numerous traders are still unable to access their properties which is directly affecting the livelihoods of owners, staff and residents.
The local community is rallying to help, and with the support and assistance that is being given right across the district the recovery will very much be a collaborative effort. If you would like to offer your support to those affected by this terrible event there are a number of ways you can help:
The New Ferry Town Team have established a fund to help ease the burden on businesses that have been unable to trade, have lost stock and are without premises. The aim of this fund is to raise £10k which will be used to support those in most need, supporting them to recommence trading in their own units or in ‘pop-up’ premises in New Ferry. Any support you may be able to offer will go directly to the affected businesses and is much appreciated. Donations can be made at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/lovenewferry.
To demonstrate the power and advanced functionality of our ultrasonic cleaners and systems, we have produced four short videos. These show our technologies in action and help to explain why Hilsonic is ‘The Engineer’s Choice’. They cover our IST3000 ultrasonic cleaner, our multi-ultrasonic tank system, our AJI ultrasonic cleaner and our AST500 system.
