CTG is pleased to announce that our Ransohoff division has introduced its Cell-U-Clean Cell Jet spray cabinet. This new small footprint platform provides an energy efficient, reliable solution for your high-volume cleaning needs, along with an innovated design for smaller part cleaning applications.
The Cell-Jet, a member of our Cell-U-Clean line of parts washers, is an excellent cabinet washer for point of use, batch cleaning where very little floor space is available. This spray washer was designed as a lower cost, industrial quality wash station utilizing spray impingement and compressed air to clean and dry your parts. The option for robot loading and unloading makes it a great choice for cell applications where cleaning specification are critical to the application. A heated blowoff option is available when a dry part is required.
Two important properties involved in parts cleaning are viscosity and surface tension. Understanding these concepts is useful for determining what cleaning methods will be most effective for an application.
What is Viscosity?
Viscosity is a physical characteristic of fluids that demonstrates resistance to motion or flow. Water is an example of a low viscosity (thin) liquid, while toothpaste is an example of a high viscosity (thick) liquid.
Newtonian versus Non-Newtonian Fluids
Newton’s law of viscosity describes the relationship between the shear stress and shear rate of a liquid under a mechanical stress. Newtonian liquids obey Newton’s law of viscosity, which means that their internal flow resistance is independent of external force. In the case of non-Newtonian liquids, they can increase or decrease in viscosity as motion is increased.
Basically, viscosity is the resistance to motion of a liquid. For example, the viscosity of toothpaste is greater than that of motor oil, and the viscosity of motor oil is greater than that of water.
The Ransohoff division of the Cleaning Technologies Group LLC, has introduced its Cell-U-Clean Mini Jet spray cabinet. This new small footprint platform provides an energy efficient, reliable solution for your high-volume cleaning needs, along with an innovative design for those smaller part cleaning applications.
The Mini Jet, a member of our Cell-U-Clean line of parts washers, is an excellent cabinet washer for both small and large parts up to 500 Lbs. where floor space comes at a premium. This spray washer was designed as a high-capacity solution with low energy, as an alternative to our heavy-duty cabinet washer product line. The rotary hide away door eliminates the extra floor space required for the door swing while ensuring a dry floor when loading and unloading.
The new Cell-U-Clean Mini Jet is a wash and blow-off machine in a small footprint of 5 ft. wide x 8 ft. long x 7.6 ft. tall. The part production rate is at 60 seconds cycles, with a variable speed table drive. The Cell-U-Clean Mini Jet is constructed of all stainless steel and comes with a robot loading option. The new Cell-U-Clean Mini Jet comes standard with the industry leading 3-2-1 warranty.

Unitech sanitizing tunnels are an excellent solution for sanitizing a wide variety of equipment and products. Our tunnel washers have been engineered to meet application requirements while lowering the risk of contamination and improving environmental safety.
Unitech Sanitizing Tunnel Advantages:
- Uninterrupted flow of sanitizing solution is effectively applied to all product surfaces
- Innovative design removes belt from product to allow 360° coverage during the spraying
- Crevice free construction minimizes risk of contamination
Ransohoff, a division of Cleaning Technologies Group, is pleased to announce the addition of the Cell-U-Clean line to our selection of aqueous parts washers. This new line has been specifically designed to be a compact and effective parts cleaning option for peak efficiency in cell manufacturing environments.
The Cell-U-Clean line was developed with a small footprint in mind. These washers feature single point load and unload to accommodate cell manufacturing configeraturations. Our Cell-U-Clean high-capacity cabinet washers are available in work envelopes ranging from 6” to 36”.
All products in the Cell-U-Clean line feature stainless steel construction and are built with standard off-the-shelf components to ensure long life and ease of maintenance. Our platform-based cabinet type parts washers require little engineering to fit your application, making them extremely cost competitive. They can be set up in a cell to be robot tended or manually loaded.

Cleaning Technologies Group has added a used machinery section to our website. Here customers will be able to find affordable, quick delivery equipment options to meet their current needs.
The CTG used machinery offering will include equipment from Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics and Ransohoff that is built and ready to ship, allowing us to meet the needs of customers who require a quick parts washing solution. These machines will include new stock machines, demo and trade show models, as well as refurbished items. Our manufacturing capability and expertise enable us to provide refurbished machinery that delivers dependable performance and value.
Valves and fittings are typically intricate and can be complex in design. They require precision cleaning to remove debris, oils, and other production materials. If valves and fittings are not thoroughly cleaned, their performance and reliability could be compromised in their intended applications.
Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics develops commercial precision ultrasonic cleaning equipment that is well-suited for valve and fitting cleaning. Our ultrasonic cleaning technology is highly effective for removing dirt, grease and grime to meet ever-changing manufacturing and cleanliness specifications.
An important advantage of our ultrasonic cleaning systems is that they are designed for quick and easy setup. Our highly effective solutions let you improve your cleaning specifications and free your workforce to perform more productive tasks, providing you with a quick return on your investment. The ultrasonic cleaning process produces cavitation energy within the tank, which attacks the buildup of oils and residue from forging, machining and heat treatment.
The ultrasonic cavitation energy will effectively clean valves and fittings for the highest finish quality. This means effective cleaning as well as savings on time, labor and material costs.
Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonic systems are engineered for long life, durability, and excellent performance, while also being aqueous-based and environmentally safe.
Ransohoff, a division of Cleaning Technologies Group LLC, has introduced its LeanDrum CF Washer. This new platform provides an energy efficient, reliable solution for your high-volume cleaning needs, along with an innovated design for cold forming applications.
The LeanDrum CF features a very robust, lower cost option utilizing stainless steel tanks, drum and housing, premium electrical components, full immersion cleaning system and forced air dryer technology to produce consistently high quality cleaning results over an extended machine life. With this new design, you may recognize less chemical utilization and have better oil control resulting in a longer bath life. In this new design, you will have the ability to apply more aggressive chemicals without foaming. The new LeanDrum CF is designed for easy access that will allow easy drum removal for maintenance.
The Ransohoff LeanJet RB-8 Immersion Cleaning System was recently featured online and in the print edition of Production Machining. Ransohoff’s rotary basket washer is touted as a productivity-enhancing solution to a cleaning process bottle-neck.
The application focus in the story was developed for Allfast Fastening Systems, part of California-based TriMas Aerospace. The company, which produces components and installation tooling for the aerospace industry, was in need of an efficient parts cleaning solution to replace a highly cumbersome and labor-intensive cleaning process. The operation in this application involved the manual cleaning of up to 5,000 parts per day.
