A Short Talk On Degassing

A good 'extra step' after filling/refilling your tank

After the water is changed for an ultrasonic tank, I have a small step I suggest but many aren't aware of.  I think I hid it in the manual somewhere :).

First what is Degassing?

Degassing and defoaming of liquids is an interesting application of ultrasonic devices. In this case the ultrasound removes small suspended gas-bubbles from the liquid and reduces the level of dissolved gas below the natural equilibrium level.

A newly filled tank from tap water has 2 things in it, that would be great if they were removed - air and particulate from the pipes/water supply.

It doesn't really hurt the cleaning process too much if we skip this step, but it does help if we do this - a step called degassing. 

Some tanks used for other industries even have a special button or switch on their units for this.  What does it do?
Well - When you first fill a tank, oxygen is introduced and exists in the water.  And ultrasonics don't work as well when their is O2 in the water!  Same with particulate - microscopic dirt, pipe lead, etc. are all floating in the water as well. 
Whats the solution?  After filling or re-filling a tank prepare the water!  squirt ONE squirt of soap to adhere to the particulate, and run the tank for 3-5 minutes.  What you will see is superfine bubbles adhering to the sidewalls and coming up to the top of the water and escaping.  The result is a cleaner more effective bath for the next operation.  Yup. that simple.
