"Hi. I recently found your blog after seeing someone share one of your posts on Facebook. I love the URL address and your tagline! I too am in the mobile phone repair business and from time to time have customers not only hand me their wet phones, they give it to me in a bag of rice! I've outgrown my tiny ultrasonic cleaner, which is similar to the one you mentioned in an earlier post. Do you have any suggestions on one of a larger scale for industrial use?"

Crest's Powersonic rugged industrial-strength performance gives you consistent quality at a benchtop price.
Crest offers more sizes and options than anyone else. Powersonic ultrasonic cleaners are available in seven sizes, from a half gallon to 7 gallons (1.75 to 26 liters), in three different configurations.
-Analog model with timer.
-Analog model with timer and adjustable thermostatically controlled heater.
-Digital model with timer, heat, and power control
Crest's exclusive Powersonic feature ensures uniform cleaning throughout the tank by sweeping the ultrasonic frequency 3 kHz, creating overlapping ultrasonic waves. This eliminates inconsistent cleaning due to hot spots (areas of intense ultrasonic activity) in the cleaning solution, caused by the unvarying or "standing" waves produced by conventional ultrasonic power supplies.
Crest describes ultrasonic cleaning like this,
"When ultrasonic energy is introduced into a cleaning solution, cavitation, the foundation of ultrasonic cleaning, occurs. Ultrasonic energy causes alternating patterns of low and high pressure phases. During the low pressure phases, bubbles, or vacuum cavities, form. In the subsequent high pressure phases, these bubbles implode violently. This is called cavitation. Cavitation provides an intense scrubbing action that leads to unsurpassed cleaning speed and consistency when compared with simple soaking or immersion with agitation. Additionally, the bubbles are small enough to penetrate even microscopic crevices, cleaning them thoroughly and consistently."
While the smaller ultrasonic cleaner we mentioned earlier is enough to get anyone started, if you're looking for a solid, industrial type ultrasonic cleaner, you can't go wrong with this 1/2 gallon industrial worthy unit from Crest. Amazon has some of the best prices too. Most of the industrial ultrasonic cleaners listed there are worth investing in.
