It is advised that carburetors in cars should be regularly cleaned to prevent carbon build up and improve the overall engine efficiency. Generally, carburetors mix air and gasoline for combustion. This part, however, has a lot of hard-to-reach crevices which make it difficult to clean manually. Manually cleaning a carburetor involves a several man-hours in addition to money spent on specialized cleaning kits.
In this day and age, it is common to look for better and innovative ways to enhance work. Automotive shops should not fall behind times and invest in equipment that will greatly benefit the entire operations. One aspect which they can innovate is through investing in cleaning equipment.
Ultrasonic cleaners are perfect for automotive shops. This cleaning equipment is time-efficient, environment-friendly, and cost-effective. With its complexity, manual cleaning of a carburetor takes a couple of hours to finish. Comparatively, cleaning a carburetor in an ultrasonic cleaner only takes about 15 minutes, depending on the degree of contamination. If the carburetor is not clean after the first 15-minute cycle, you can load it again in the ultrasonic cleaner for a few more minutes.
