Welzyme Detergent Sachets
It is essential that ultrasonic cleaning is performed with the correct solution. An incorrect solution will slow down the cleaning process, give poor results and may even cause damage to the ultrasonic cleaner. Ultra sonic solutions are designed to reduce surface tension and therefore increase ultrasonic activity within the bath.
WELzyme has been specially formulated with proteolytic enzymes to quickly break down organic matter and protein residues from instruments, glassware and endoscopes. Using WELzyme in our ultrasonic cleaning baths enhances their performance and removes contaminants from even the hardest to reach crevice.
WELzyme is packaged in 2 size single shot sachets - 5ml and 10ml. The 5ml is specifically designed for use in our model QC ultrasonic cleaner whilst the 10ml is designed for use in our model 80T. These easy tear sachets ensure that the correct does is always used without the need for complicated measuring.
