Guyson International has upgraded its range of Kerry ultrasonic KS cleaning tanks.

All models have been equipped with an extended feature set and upgraded operational performance with faster start-up times.

There are six standard tank sizes in the range, from the KS300, which has a tank capacity of 17.5 litres, to the KS4000, which has a 247.5 litre capacity.

Larger sizes are available to order.

All are constructed using AISI 316L polished stainless-steel tanks and Kerry Pulsatron ultrasonic generators.

The range includes an increased number of heater pads to raise the fluid temperature to operational levels, and fluid ‘max and min’ levels on the internal tank wall.

Optional low water-level sensor housing and wiring are included in the tank build to enable retrospective take-up of that function.

Also included is a removable rear panel to allow service access to rear tank heater mats.

Generator and processor boards, along with all major controlling electronics, are housed in a lockable cabinet mounted to the side of the tank.

This also removes them from proximity to the floor, preventing damp and water ingress.

Ultrasonic transducers bonded to the tank base provide uniform distribution of energy.

The frequency is factory tuned to the individual tank/transducer combination and then optimised under normal usage conditions with frequency sweep and automatic tuning.

The tanks allow users to pre-set exact cleaning times and temperatures, ensuring consistent levels of cleanliness from batch to batch.

All functions are controlled by a four-button membrane keypad.

An LCD panel displays the temperature and time set by the user, the time elapsed since the start of the cleaning process, and the status of the power supply, heater and ultrasonics.

Each unit works within operating temperatures from 20 to 80C, which can be set in one-degree increments, allowing the optimum temperature to be selected for a particular combination of component material, cleaning solution and contaminant.

Sonics time may be set from 0.1 to 99.9mins in 0.1min increments, or to constant when sonics may be manually switched on and off.

Automatic safety devices include non-operation of sonics if solution temperature is more than 10C above set temperature and low-level protection to prevent heater burn-out if the solution level drops.

Standard KS systems operate between 34 and 40kHz and come with Kerry Pulsatron M300 generators.

Kerry Guysonic generators with Primewave dual frequency controls, switchable between 36 and 66kHz, are also available and come as standard on the KS3000 and KS4000.

The company said that the higher frequency allows sensitive or difficult parts – such as fine precision components, intricately shaped parts or fine tubing – to be safely cleaned.

These can also provide variable power control and will store a variety of cleaning programs in memory for automatic operation when required.
