We have a state-of-the-art machine to clean vinyl records using ultrasounds.
The core of the cleaner is the 120kHz ultrasonic cleaning system. It has been carefully designed in house to make sure that records are cleaned thoroughly and without any damage to the surface of the record.
Ultrasonic cleaning works by creating a large number of microscopical bubbles in the cleaning bath, a phenomena called cavitation. The bubbles are a vacuum created by high frequency pressure waves moving through the water. Every ultrasonic cycle bubbles are formed and collapsed, releasing energy as heat and minuscule strong water jets. These effects combined thoroughly clean all surfaces down to a microscopic level.
A 120kHz frequency provides finer and more evenly distributed cleaning action than lower frequency systems. In fact, this technology at even higher frequencies is used to clean parts in the semiconductor industry, where surfaces need to be pure on a molecular level.
It uses a custom ultrasonic bath with a custom 300W ultrasonic amplifier that has been designed specifically for cleaning vinyl records.
We can clean 7", 10" and 12" vinyl records. And don't worry about the center paper label, it will remain completely safe.
Please take into account that we can remove dirt but scratches remain forever.
Before and After
The before images are from a brand new record that has been exposed to nicotine smoke, covered with fine grain graphite dust, and soaked in beer. Because of electrical conductivity the graphite particles are more clearly visible while beer is not that noticeable. In reality, of course, dried beer creates a sticky film on the surface that keeps all the dust firmly in place.
The after images are of the same record once it has been through a 5-minute cleaning cycle. No detergents or solutions were used, just pure distilled water at room temperature. It is evident that already one cleaning cycle has effectively cleaned the vinyl, leaving only a few specs of dust. Running the program twice would have left the record absolutely pristine.
