Joe Redmond: How do you think this process would work with Paraffin waxed chains.
Vincent Manuel: Have you ever thought about using a methylated spirits for your parts once you have blown out all of the roller joints? The metho will displace any other liquid and will then evaporate off quickly, even faster when heat is applied (hair dryer). I use this same method for cleaning brass rifle cases and I have been doing it for years. You can reuse the same metho over and over again. You should give it a go, I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how well it works.
Crocellian: Use a real solution. There are dozens out there. There are some home brews that work. Avoid anything with ammonia if you have aluminum parts.
Citric acid is all that was in your solution. Not great at cleaning and very, very hard on metal.
Try the old soap, salt and vinegar mix. Google around.
Mehran Mahdi: materials stretch when heated....doing this periodically may stretch and damage you components
koDiacc: will any ultrasonic cleaner do the work?
MrKlyushin: Hello! They say that if factory lube that's inside the chain is washed off say with WD-40 the process of chain stretching will become quicker .... While using ultrasonic this grease will be gone ... The question is how to restore the lube? Will the simple chain lubing work? Or you need to boil chain in oil so that lube can enter deep parts of chain? THX for you respond!!!
Daniel Wøhlk (Solsixxa): i also use it to re-oil the chain. Using dry telflon oil. It gets in everywhere! just like new one!
creativedave: Hi @The Subjective Cyclist Review , I'm very interested in obtaining one of these. Now that a few years have passed, do you still like the product? How many liters is the one in the video? Could you fit chain rings in there as well? Thank you for making this vid.
Charles Rinehart: A pricey cleaner here at $160.
BATMANsNSXGTO: Is this the same one that you can buy on Ebay? Pretty reliable unit?
Bobcatt22: The background music is distracting. Otherwise, good video.
Wingmantx: Great video. It cracks me up when you pull out the simply orange bottle. LOL
scottybee915: It looks like the damage to the anodized finish may have come from vibrating against the other components while cleaning. Way cool ultrasonic cleaner- who is the manufacturer?
Leo Schmitt: Where did you get and for how much
chickeee: thanks again, good info
The Subjective Cyclist Review: I just rummaged through my paypal account to figure out what model this is (the specs are not indicated on the unit) because more people have asked . You are correct: 6 liters, but 430watts.
The Subjective Cyclist Review: It is rated at 430 watts and can hold 6 liters.
Leo Schmitt: How many litters is that?
The Subjective Cyclist Review: Heat is everything! Although some chemicals like mineral spirits or aerosol degreasers will cut through grease at any temp, the citrus solution I use in my cleaner is drastically more effective when the solution is generously heated. The ultrasonic portion helps to some extent but the majority of the work is done by the solvent when it is brought to a high temp.
Additionally, I wouldn't use ultrasonic specific solution. They're generally a mild detergent (at best) for cleaning jewelery.
chickeee: thanks I got a small one 30W / 50W without the heater for about $40 - it doesn't do anything even with hot water and solution. Yours looks like a 6 litre 380W
