The main difference between 304 & 316 stainless steel is that 316 stainless steel has the addition of 2% molybdenum which is added to help resist corrosion to chlorides, like sea water and transport de-icing salts. With this in mind, we offer our standard range Ultrasonic Cleaners made from 304 grade stainless steel usually from UK stock, and can offer Ultrasonic Cleaners 316 stainless steel available to order with both available in custom sizes.

Type 304 stainless steel proves to be resistant to oxidation, corrosion, and is very durable. Type 316 stainless steel has a superior corrosion resistance to chemical attacks compared to 304 stainless steel for example. Although 316 stainless steel costs slightly more than Type 304, it is certainly worth the small investment if your Ultrasonic Tank is in an environment where there is a chance harmful chemical can attack the stainless steel bath or the items being cleaned have been subjected to sea water or de-icing salts.

The hugely popular silver Aluminium Flight Case (product code EN-AC-FG-C203) has had a slight makeover and we are stocking the same professional finish but in black. Like the silver case, the black Flight Case also comes with an egg foam lid to keep your contents safe from damage and also has reinforced metal corners for additional external safety. This medium size case also comes with a quick catch mechanism for convenient opening and closing.

After high demand from customers all over the world, we are expecting our black Flight Cases (product code EN-AC-FG-C203-BK) to fly off the shelves. Grab one before they disappear:

We have just received a fantastic video from a M-DRO customer of ours putting it to work. He is using the M-DRO MDC700 Milling Console Pitched Circle Function (PCD) to create a pipe flange with 4 holes around a 2 inch diameter. A great example of his work and how easy and accurate the M-DRO Console makes the job at hand. View the full video here.
