How to Clean a Carburettor With an Ultrasonic Cleaner

Motorbikes, lawnmowers, and other small engine carburettors can collect sticky residue over time, eventually affecting how the engine runs. While cleaning your carburettor is crucial for proper functioning, scrubbing it by hand is tiring and time-consuming. This article discusses how to clean a carburettor with an ultrasonic cleaner to eliminate grime and leave it looking brand new.

What Is an Ultrasonic Cleaner?

An ultrasonic cleaner transmits high-frequency sound waves through a liquid to clean submerged objects, such as carburettors. The sonic energy agitates the liquid, forming tiny vacuums in the form of microscopic bubbles. These vacuum bubbles implode over the surface of the submerged objects, dislodging dirt and grime from even the smallest cracks and crevices.

  1. Remove the carburettor, its float, and other components you want to clean
  2. Fill the ultrasonic cleaner’s tank with diluted detergent
  3. Place the carburettor in the cleaning tank
  4. Set your temperature and time, and let the ultrasonic cleaner do the rest!
