Ultrasonic Cleaning using Flammable Solvents Beaker Kits

Beakers filled with flammable solvent provide safe cleaning operation 

Operating an ultrasonic cleaner not designated as explosion proof with the tank filled with a flammable solvent poses a serious explosion hazard. However, a standard ultrasonic cleaner can be operated safely* using the following method: Fill beakers with flammable solvent and position them in a water-filled ultrasonic cleaner. Small parts can be cleaned inside covered beakers which are partially immersed in water. The ultrasonic waves pass through the beaker walls and into the solvent. This operation should be carried out with sufficient ventilation to prevent solvent vapor accumulation.
