If I am not cleaning with a water based solution, I place the cleaning solvent in a glass jar with the item(s) to be cleaned and fill the rest of the tank with water. I leave the lid on the jar loose to prevent splashing, but to allow any vapor to vent.By the time anything has gotten to the USC it usually has been pre-cleaned to get the heavy stuff off first.I have used paint thinner for mechanical stuff, and vinegar for rusty stuff (leaves a black coating). As noted, check the label on any cleaning solutions to see if it reacts with aluminum, brass, chrome, etc. I noticed in the instructions for my unit that certain types of jewelry (e.g. opals) can also be damaged by the USC.Philbert
This comes straight from the mouth of a man that has written many instruction manuals on ultrasonic cleaning methods. He first recommends the cleaner that they manufacture specifiacally for the purpose of carb cleaning. Second is simple green in a 1:10 solution.
Good morning AngeloToluene and Xylene are both extremely flammable also, not to mention very hazardous to your health if inhaled or absorbed through your skin. ( I know I am getting boring with this repeat message, but I am a Hazmat tech and we get pummeled with this stuff all the time) Lol. Varsol with a high flash point should be fine..... as a side note though, if you have access to good amounts of Toluene, it is one of the best octane boosters out there! 20% percent Toluene mixed with 80% gasoline will raise the RON octane number around 2.5 full numbers !!! (Not points, which is one tenth of a full number). So 92 octane would end up at 94.5 or so.
