The core of Degritter is the 120kHz ultrasonic cleaning system. It has been carefully designed in house to make sure that records are cleaned thoroughly and without any damage to the surface of the record.
Degritter uses a custom ultrasonic bath with a custom 300W ultrasonic amplifierthat has been designed specifically for cleaning vinyl records. The cleaning bath has four ultrasonic transducers (emitters), two on both sides covering the whole record. Degritter also comes with Frequency Sweep feature, which provides better cavitation energy and power distribution. Degritter is the only cleaning solution on the market working at 120kHz and having the Frequency Sweep feature.

The package includes:
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.
Degritter record cleaning machines come with an active filtering solution. Active means that it removes small particles and dirt from the water during the ultrasonic cleaning process. Dirt washed off the record is filtered out of the ultrasonic cleaning bath and it won’t end up back on the record.

Every Degritter machine comes with a batch of cleaning fluid concentrate. It’s not necessarily mandatory to use it, but it does have certain benefits. The concentrate is made out of anionic surfactants which help remove the dirt. It’s safe to use and won’t harm the vinyl.
We recommend using of 2 ml of concentrate per one water tank of 1.2 liters. This creates a solution where surface tension is lowered enough to allow ultrasonic energy to break the water more easily while anionic molecules are delicately extracting the dirt from adjacent surfaces.
In short here’s what the cleaning fluid can do:
