Degritter's cleaning effect has been thoroughly researched under digital and an electron microscope. We are confident in its quality, but have a look at the comparisons below to see for yourself.
The before images are of a brand new record that has been exposed to nicotine smoke, covered with fine grain graphite dust, and soaked in beer. Because of electrical conductivity the graphite particles are more clearly visible while beer is not that noticeable. In reality, of course, dried beer creates a sticky film on the surface that keeps all the dust firmly in place.
The after images are of the same record once it has been through a 5-minute cleaning cycle with Degritter. No detergents or solutions were used, just pure distilled water at room temperature. It is evident that already one cleaning cycle has effectively cleaned the vinyl, leaving only a few specs of dust. Running the program twice would have left the record absolutely pristine.
The core of Degritter cleaners is our 120kHz ultrasonic cleaning system with carefully calculated power output to make sure that records are cleaned thoroughly without any damage to the surface.
Ultrasonic cleaning technology works by creating a large number of microscopical bubbles in the cleaning basin. The bubbles are a vacuum created by high frequency vibrations and sound waves that move through the water. The bubbles will grow for a few vibration cycles and will eventually collapse, releasing energy in the form of heat and minuscule strong water jets. These microscopical water jets will thoroughly clean all surfaces.
Degritter’s cleaning system is the only record cleaning solution on the market that uses 120kHz frequencies, which provide better energy distribution, less noise, and more delicate cleaning.
