Engine block cleaning with ultrasonic machine: benefits and step-by-step process
A vehicle's engine is one of the most important parts of a car. It is therefore crucial to ensure that it is always in good condition.
One of the ways to keep the engine in good condition is through the use of a regular cleaning of the engine block.
In this article, we will discuss how a cleaning with an ultrasonic machine can help to effectively clean the engine block and keep it in good condition.
Engine block cleaning
What is engine block cleaning?
The engine block cleaning is a process that involves the removal of deposits of dirt, oil and other debris accumulated inside the engine.
These deposits can reduce engine efficiency and ultimately affect engine performance.
Regular cleaning of the engine block can help prevent major problems and ensure better engine performance.
How does cleaning with an ultrasonic machine work?
An ultrasonic machine is a tool used to clean mechanical parts and components.
Cleaning with an ultrasonic machine works by generating high-frequency sound waves. in a special cleaning fluid, which then implode and dislodge dirt and other debris from the parts being cleaned.
In the case of engine block cleaning, the block is disassembled and immersed in a special cleaning solution in the ultrasonic machine.
The cleaning solution moves rapidly through the engine block, removing all debris accumulated inside.
After cleaning, all parts are removed from the cleaning fluid and thoroughly rinsed before reassembling the engine.

Results of an ultrasonic cleaning of the engine block
At IBERKLEEN we have a lot of experience in ultrasonic cleaning of different types of parts and materials.
In the previous video, we showed a video of the cleaning of an engine block using our ultrasonic machine POLARIS series which has a pneumatic platform to help with batting.
In this case, we use our special chemistry, temperature 75ºC and 45 minutes.
Some points to be taken into account during the cleaning process with an ultrasonic machine:
- Chemistry used: Not all have the same effect.
- Ultrasound powerUltrasonic power of the machine and quality of the ultrasound.
- Location of ultrasoundThe location of the ultrasonic transducers is important for maximum effectiveness of the process.
- Batting: Oscillation of the machine platform during cleaning to help reach all points.
- TemperatureIt is important to know the optimum temperature according to the material and type of cleaning.

Benefits of cleaning with an ultrasonic machine
Cleaning with an ultrasonic machine offers several advantages. benefits over traditional engine block cleaning methods.
Some of these benefits include:
Cleaning with an ultrasonic machine is much more effective in removing hard-to-reach deposits and debris inside the engine.
The liquid enters all the gaps and the waves effectively reach where other methods do not.
Cleaning with an ultrasonic machine is faster than traditional cleaning methods, which means that less time is required to clean the engine block.
Less wear and tear
Cleaning with an ultrasonic machine does not damage the surfaces of the block of the engine and parts being cleaned, which means there is less risk of wear or damage.
Cleaning with an ultrasonic machine is more effective than traditional cleaning methods, which means that more dirt and debris can be removed from inside the engine.
