For this episode we head back to EFI University with Lake Speed Jr to see Ben Strader and talk about the number one cause of bearing failure: dirty parts, and how to get them really, truly clean.

The guys break down the four components of proper cleaning – time, temperature, concentration and agitation – and delve into how parts with lots of nooks, crannies and hard-to-clean parts can be made spotless using high frequency sound waves (aka: ultrasonic cleaning).

They also provide a demo of ultrasonic cleaning and give us a before and after, using a microscope to show just how easy it is to get even delicate parts spotless.

(The ultrasonic cleaner used in the video is the Ultra 1000M, from Ultrasonic LLC.)
