cobalt327 Second time (, posts 10-13) someone has mistakenly thought I was calling THEM out when I wasn't. Time for me to stop responding to spammers in a post!

Anyway if you'll notice, the spammer (matusgreats) was quoted in my post above. His original post containing the spam has been removed. It had nada to do w/you!

garyroushkolb I hope you were not talking about me being a spammer!

garyroushkolb I use one of harbor frieght's small cleaners with their cleaning solution Item #91593
This works very well on cleaning blower bearings. The stuff costs $5.99 and you only use a little of it at a time so you can always have clean solution for the final clean.

Basically you want a cleaner that is effective on the material you're trying to remove, but that will not harm the tank of the cleaning unit or the material that is being cleaned. My tank is stainless steel, so I can use a variety of cleaners w/o harming it, strong acids being the exception.

Often a alkaline cleaner like Black Maxx diluted to the needed strength works well- but the metal being cleaned should not be aluminum or magnesium, or painted.

oily parts cleaner

I use Gunk engine cleaner and a tooth brush size wire brush or tooth brush. It comes off with water. Great stuff.

cobalt327 For a large car parts cleaner (that's a hell of an ultrasound unit, BTW) I agree w/using one of the alkaline cleaners. Not for aluminum or alloys or painted surfaces. Cheapest is either the super concentrated "Black Maxx" from NAPA (one fluid ounce- about 10 worth- to a quart of water equals the strength of the average bottle of 409 or Fantastik, etc.), or driveway cleaner sold by many parts stores. This is a 409-type alkaline cleaner, but more concentrated and w/o any perfumes or pretty dyes added to appease housewives.

I found some idiot at work had filled our ultrasonic cleaner with acetone. Our cleaner has a built in heater that will reach 220 degrees. I'm surprised that **** didnt go kaboom.
I like using purple power like mentioned above.

matts37chev I use Purple Power degreaser (generic castrol super clean) in my solvent tank
it has some acid in it, so you need to use a little care with aluminum
you can get it in 1 or 2.5 gallon jugs, at wal mart, pretty cheap

garyroushkolb I've got a large tank cleaner that I clean blower bearings in and would like to find something else also. i currently use water with dawn dishwasher soap. I preclean the bearings in solvent first.
