October 2015 21 Ultrasonic Systems Clean without Solvents Ultrasonic LLC's Ultra 2400FA ultrasonic cleaner features a 24-gallon main tank capacity and horizontal transducers designed for efective cleaning without solvents. Available in 120-V and 220-V models, each cleaning system features an agitation table, dual fltration, a 6-gallon weir tank, a sparge bar, and an insulated tank and lid. The V-bottom design enables easy cleaning between batches, the company says, and side-mounted transducers mean there are no "dead spots," resulting in consistent clean- ing from top to bottom. With 1,920 W of ultrasonic power, heaters of 1,000 + 500 W, and basket capacity of 22" × 11" × 5.5", the systems can quickly clean items including rubber and plastic parts, bearings, bolts, transmission components, engine parts prior to assembly, and plastic injection molds. Digital touch controls are designed for easy operation with automatic ultrasonic, agitation and fltration cycles. An agitation table capacity of 100 lbs can handle large parts or large batches of smaller components. Ultrasonic LLC / Polishing Stone Lubricant Enables Consistent, Free Cutting Boride Engineered Abrasives ofers Premium Stoning Oil, a petro- leum-based lubricant for use with mold and die polishing stones and abrasive papers. The nearly odorless formulation is less hazardous than other lubricants such as kerosene, is not harsh on skin, and does not pro- mote oxidation on molds and dies, the company says. It can be used on the workpiece or tool itself, or as a stone pre-soak. When used with polishing stones, the lubricant prevents stone loading and is said to allow for more consistent and free cutting action. Boride Engineered Abrasives / Mold Release Formulated for Fluorinated Rubber, Thermoset Materials Huron Technologies' Release Coating 8056 is a high-performance mold release agent developed for a variety of rubber manufacturing applica- tions, including release of fuorinated rubber compounds and FKM rubber materials that require silicone-free processes. The water-based, silicone-free coating eases mold release and ofers high-temperature molding stability ranging to 400°F. According to the company, it enables multiple part releases per application and creates minimal buildup on mold surfaces, resulting in the need for fewer cleaning cycles and reduced downtime.
