Ultrasonic Cleaning
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.

Ultrasonic cleaning works by creating a large number of microscopical bubbles in the cleaning bath, a phenomena called cavitation. The bubbles are a vacuum created by high frequency pressure waves moving through the water. Every ultrasonic cycle bubbles are formed and collapsed, releasing energy as heat and minuscule strong water jets. These effects combined thoroughly clean all surfaces down to a microscopic level.

A 120kHz frequency provides finer and more evenly distributed cleaning action than lower frequency systems. In fact, this technology at even higher frequencies is used to clean parts in the semiconductor industry, where surfaces need to be pure on a molecular level.

Degritter uses a custom ultrasonic bath with a custom 300W ultrasonic amplifier that 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.

Features

Active filtering solution
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 wont end up back on the record.

Features of a filtering system:
Easy Maintenance.
Gets rid of both surface dirt and dissolved dirt.
A fine mesh filter.

Principle and Maintenance
The active filtering solution works by circulating water through the filter and then back into the bath while your record is being cleaned. Water is pulled into the filter from the top of the tank in order to remove all floating dust and particles. Heavy particles that settle at the bottom will be pumped out to the external water tank, which has a dedicated sediment section.

The filter is easily accessible from the side of the machine. It is made up of a cylindrical steel mesh which contains a replaceable open cell foam filter. The outer part of the filter is washable, which makes for easy maintenance and upkeep.

Configurable Drying Fans
The drying cycle with blower fans can be the loudest element of the cleaning cycles. In order to give users the control over drying fan speed, power, and noise, weve created 20 different fan power settings that can be selected.

Setting the Fan Power to high will dry the record quicker, but it will also generate significant amount of noise. On low settings, the fans will be almost inaudible, but the drying will take longer.

Software Updates
At the heart of our user experience is the control board that is connected to all the sensors, actuators and the LCD. To make sure that the machines that have already been shipped out to their new owners are running on the latest software, weve added an SD card slot that allows the user to update its software.

7" and 10" Records
While the Degritter is designed to clean 12 records by default, its possible to clean 7 and 10 records as well. For this weve created a set of adaptors that can be attached to smaller records to convert their diameter to 12 and clean them just the same.

Safety
Degritter is equipped with multiple sensors to constantly monitor the state of the machine. This way the machine is able to detect and safely recover from any unexpected use cases like loss of power during the ultrasonic washing or if the water temperature rises to unsafe levels for vinyl. As an extra safety net we also have software subroutines checking the status of the sensors to prevent any unexpected failures due to sensor malfunction.

Degritter is capable of recovering and warning users in the following situations:
Sensor malfunction
Water temperature too high
Water in the cleaning tank due to switch off during wash
External water tank missing
Insufficient water
Pump failures

Cleaning Fluid
Every Degritter machine comes with a batch of cleaning fluid concentrate. Its 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. Its safe to use and wont harm the vinyl.

We recommend using of 2 ml of concentrate per one water tank of 1.2 litres. 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 fluid can do:
Improves the cleaning effect further
Shortens the drying time
Creates an antistatic layer (can also be rinsed off if needed)
Fully safe for vinyl

Transformative....

Ive owned the Degritter for 6 mths or so now and have been amazed with what it can do. While it wont miraculously clean thick caked on dirt (grandpa's oldies!) once the thick stuff is removed more traditionally the Degritter can recover the LP by getting the real inner groove stuff out. I now double deep wash everything, new or old. A before and after is nothing short of transformative and lofts the sound quality more than any other system component itself ive ever experienced. I could simply not live without what it does. Even brand new top notch pressings from Mofi etc sound cleaner and clearer after a double wash. Ive had many positive comments about it, not least from buyers of some of our old records ive been cleaning and selling. I cant wait to work through the next 1000 or so!

Great upgrade

Yes it’s expensive but it has just made an unplayable copy of Surrealistic Pillow not only playable but also improved the focus and dynamics. It does sound like a component has been upgraded. I was somewhat cynical of the reviews on the web, but I was so fed up with the number of used record returns I was making I felt sufficiently desperate to risk the purchase. The most satisfying hifi purchase made and improves my existing components. Looking forward to cleaning more of my collection. Super easy to set up ( take it out the box and plug in) and to use. Note that I am following the Paul Rigby cleaning process. Includes a 7% alcohol clean In a Discostat, then a direct to record surfactant before putting it into the Degritter using just distilled water. Works brilliantly. Invest!

Made a real difference.....

It’s arrived. Just cleaned what I thought was a pristine copy of Abbey Road. Pleasantly surprised, made a real difference.

Thanks for the help

I am VERY impressed......

Hi,

Just to let you know the RCM is up and running now for a couple of days and I am very impressed with it. Prior the this RCM I had an Audio Desk Pro and the Degritter leaves it standing.

Regards Ian.

Rarely has a recording cleaning machine looked so cool... a product that is well thought out and nicely put together.

The remarkable attention to detail that this young company has lavished on every area of the product's manufacture process, from the robust packaging to the feel and finish of the unit and the impressively informative instruction manual that demonstrates just how seriously the Degritter team takes the business of cleaning records.

Unlike other wet cleaning machines we've seen, the Degritter is fully automatic... able to clean down to a microscopic level.

Even after the machine's shortest clean, I am left with a shiny piece of vinyl that looks to be rejuvenated after removing years of dirt and grease from careless fingerprints while avoiding any moisture contamination on the record label itself. The disc looks so pristine, I play it immediately to hear the result and there's no doubt the sound is brighter and more focused and there's a significant decrease in surface noise.

The Degritter automatic record cleaning machine does a remarkably thorough job and is one of the most sophisticated models we've seen. It's a great addition to any vinyl collection.
