Blackstone-Ney Ultrasonics, a division of Cleaning Technologies Group LLC, introduces its PROHT ultrasonic cleaning tanks powered by 2K Platform Neptune, SweepSonic, and MultiSonic ultrasonic generators.

PROHT ultrasonic cleaning tanks and housings are constructed of stainless steel with a duplex stainless transducer radiating surface to extend transducer life, the company says. These tanks are available in sizes ranging from 12” × 6” through 36” × 24” and is said to offer the same cleaning capabilities as more elaborate systems but at a lower price. They are especially useful for laboratory as well as entry-level through small scale production cleaning. The compact design fits easily on a workbench or can be installed as a bench top drop-in. A digital ultrasonic timer and temperature control are standard features of the PROHT design.

The tanks are powered by the company’s 2K Platform ultrasonic generators. These generators each provide up to 2000 watts of ultrasonic power and, according to the company, are compact, energy efficient and cost-effective ultrasonic generators. They are available in a variety of single and multiple frequency configurations and are designed to meet any ultrasonic cleaning need. They include an ultrasonic power control as a standard feature.

System upgrades for PROHT features include cove-corner tanks, ground and polished welds, overflow weirs, water jackets, cooling coils and condensing collars. The systems are intended for use with most non-flammable liquids excluding strong acids and chlorine bleach. Optional tank materials are available.
