Cleaning methods are as varied as the types of surfaces, substrates, and particles that exist. Not only is it important to consider all of these factors, it is necessary to think about how particles not only adhere to substrates, but also interact with and attach to each other. This is why there is no one-size-fits-all type of cleaning approach that works for every application.

The Mechanics of Cleaning

The mechanics of cleaning involve the removal of either soluble or insoluble contaminants, or a combination of both. Ultrasonic cleaning is the preferred method for the removal of soluble contaminants and particles that are less than approximately 6mm in size.

JAMESTOWN, NY – The CTG family of companies is proud to recognize three Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics employees who stepped into a perilous situation to help save a life.

Merle Delcamp, Dean Bennett, and Patti Carlson, employees of Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics, each played an important role in the rescue of a local man who was in extreme danger.

When Merle Delcamp and Dean Bennett arrived for work at 6:30 am on Monday, July 19th, they noticed area resident, Mike Campbell, attempting to rescue a man in distress. The victim was an older man who appeared to have fallen into the Chadakoin River and was clinging to a tree.

The river’s rushing current was making the situation especially dangerous, as the three men worked to save the weakened man from the water. A steep cement bank was also impeding the progress of the rescue, making it too difficult for the men to pull the victim to safety.

The Torrent is a single chamber, front loading rotary basket style machine that features 640 watts of Blackstone-NEY single or multi-frequency Ultrasonics for vacuum and non-vacuum immersion wash or rinse, basket rotation with user selected speed, direction and short cyclic modes, compressed air blow off, spray rinsing and hot air dry or vacuum dry with hot air assist.
