What are the salient difference between your system and others

We have spent 4 years in researching all past and current processes and methods to clean records. In fact, that is all they do, we found them only to clean the record’s surface. Ultrasonic technology while interesting needs to see records properly spaced in a bath that never exceeds 95 deg. F. In the process, a surfactant needs to be applied with a brush that is sized to fit into the grooves to wet the records and take advantage of the caveatting bubbles creating the “plasma wave that brushes in the surfactant”.

Our Process sees multiple 3-5 minute cycles, typically 3 or 4, to get down into the grooves and remove past contaminants including record release agents, left over cleaning agents as well as of course, fungus and dirt. We also allow you to know when the process is over, something that no other manufacturer or process allows you to see when a record, as in our case, is “restored”.
