Encountering ferrous metals such as tools at a Pack Out is not uncommon and restoring them can be a breeze with the right equipment and procedure.

 
Procedure for cleaning with an ultrasonic line:

  1. Stabilize tools with undiluted UNWET CPDL prior to Pack Out. This can be brushed on or sprayed on with a spray bottle.
  2. Once at your facility place tools in a basket, then into the Pre-Wash Station and presoak for 1-5 minutes (with a 2-4 ounce per gallon mixture of OmegaSmoke and water) until the residue has been emulsified.
  3. Move the basket to the ultrasonic station prepared with a 2-4 ounce per gallon mix of Omega Smoke. Set the timer on the ultrasonic cleaner to run on 2 minute cycles until all smoke residues has been removed.
  4. Move the basket to the Rinse Detail station and rinse all soap and residue using hot, clean, free flowing water that is the same temperature as the as the solution in the ultrasonic tank.
  5. Move the baskets into a prepared saddle tank in the ultrasonic bath with Omega Descaler at 4-8 ounces per gallon of water. Using an Indirect Cleaning Tank will reduce the amount of soap required and allows the operator to use two different chemistries at the same time. Set the timer on the ultrasonic cleaner to run for 4 minute cycles until all corrosion deposits have been removed.
  6. Move the basket to the Rinse Detail station and rinse all soap and residue using hot, clean, free flowing water that is the same temperature as the as the solution in the ultrasonic tank.
  7. Dip the tools in a 1:10 bath of Omega Rust Preventative that has been preheated to 120°F. (This can be done in a plastic container)
  8. Place the tools onto a table top or leave in the basket and allow to air dry. Do Not blow off moisture or pass treated tools through the drying chamber as this action may remove the post treatment rust preventative from the tools.
