Degassing Ultrasonic Cleaning Solution

Q. How would we determine appropriate degassing time for a solution with ultrasonic cleaner? We are cleaning with distilled water with Alconox detergent.

A. Degassing time for an ultrasonic detergent solution varies with amount of dissolved carbon dioxide, which itself can vary across different detergents. In general 10 minutes is more than enough to degas any normal detergent solution. You can turn on the ultrasonic tank and observe when bubbles stop coming out if you wish to degas for less than 10 minutes.
