Ultrasonic Cleaning for Automotive Servicing & Reconditioning
Automotive repair, manufacturing and rebuilding companies reach to ultrasonic cleaning technology to remove dirt and contamination from various parts and components. Kleentek solutions eliminate automotive contaminants such as oil, grease, metal shavings, lubricants, rust, and carcinogens from automotive parts for consistently clean components. Our MetalKleen range is specifically designed for automotive workshops.
Our ultrasonic range for the automotive industry:
Engine Reconditioning with Ultrasonics
Engine reconditioners and automatic transmission companies turn to Kleentek for ultrasonic cleaning that is fast, efficient, affordable and environmentally friendly. This method has been proven successful in cleaning alloy heads to reduce bead blasting by up to 95% while providing substantial cost savings. The reduction of bead blasting also dramatically reduces the potential for further damage to the head once fitted. Our range of industrial ultrasonic cleaning tanks improves productivity in the automotive workshop by automating cleaning of components such as inlet (air intake) manifolds, engine heads, carburettors and even entire engine blocks.
Automatic transmission companies have had major success in cleaning valve bodies and various gear box components using ultrasonic technology. Cleaning times are reduced, cleaning effectiveness is improved and there is no longer a use for cacogenic solvents when ultrasonic technology is used—this reduces the carbon footprint that automotive companies place on the environment in an effort to properly clean parts and components.
Kleentek has developed an ultrasonic cleaner that is specially designed to clean the internal and external parts of vehicle radiators, industrial compressors and hydraulic coolers of all shapes and sizes. Utilising unique cleaning techniques that incorporate a large high powered cleaning tank with a weir system, pump and filtration systems, this ultrasonic cleaning can bring nearly any clogged up radiator back to life by eliminating build up that limit proper function.

Ultrasonic cleaning can help to:
- Restore blocked coolers
- Extend the life of a cooler
- Clean inaccessible places
- Promote thorough flushing
- Release baked on metals
Cleaning Brake & Steering Assemblies
All aspects of brake assemblies; drums, housings, brake lines and pistons can be clean effectively in ultrasonics using the correct chemistry. Where a number of different components are made from different materials Kleentek has designed machines that can run different ultrasonics cleaning solutions to suit the requirement in the same ultrasonic machine resulting in substantial cost savings.
All the steering assemblies, once it has been disassembled and gross cleaned can be critically cleaned in ultrasonics. Hard to get at crevices and assemblies will be cleaned very effectively.
Diesel Servicing with Ultrasonics
In this fast changing field of diesel injection and pump servicing, the combination of ultrasonics and new ultrasonics cleaning solutions has resulted in reducing the use of bead blasting significantly. When cleanliness is of the utmost importance you cannot go past ultrasonics to achieve that final critical clean before going to the clean room for assembly. Ultrasonics can also remove paint from external surfaces of pump assemblies as well. Why risk bead or sodium bicarbonate residue in a pump assembly when ultrasonics can take the worry away. It is the only safe effective way to clean.
