The Benefits of Ultrasonic Cleaning

Ultrasonic cleaners have been around for a number of years and have increasing uses in the firearm industry. Ultrasonic cleaners are used by ammunition re-loaders at home, major manufacturers and everyone in-between. Their primary use is to clean gun parts using ultrasonic technology in a solvent mixture. Here at Calibers, we use our ultrasonic to clean customer’s firearms as well as our rental firearms. The ultrasonic cleaner reaches places that are difficult to clean despite the firearm being completely stripped. Complete dis-assembly is required for proper cleaning to ensure all liquids are dried out before detailing and reassembling the firearm.

Stop into our gunsmith department to get your firearm cleaned by our state-of-the-art crest ultrasonic cleaner. We can accommodate barreled actions and parts up to three feet. Our biodegradable solvent is used to clean parts made out of a variety of materials. The most common materials include steel, aluminum, plastic, and brass. Factors that need to be considered for how often a gun needs to be cleaned include but are not limited to: number of rounds fired, conditions of range, weather, humidity, ammo used, and time in storage. The more often a firearm is cleaned the better the performance you can expect to see from it.

Keep shooting, keep your guns clean, and stay safe.
