New Software Version 2.3.6

On Friday, November 11 Degritter released a new software version 2.3.6 for the
existing Degritter machines.

The software includes multiple improvements that are also
present in MARK II machine, such as:

  • New
    fixed menu that makes navigating the machine’s features easier.
  • Water
    temperature is constantly displayed during the washing cycle.
  • Choose
    your preferred water temperature units, either Celsius or Fahrenheit.
  • Option
    to reset filter runs when the filter is cleaned.
  • Post-wash
    rinse option: the Degritter now supports rinsing records during
    washing cycles with a designated separate water tank. 
  • Improvements
    to the overall stability of the machine’s operating system.


The software version is available for download on our


New User Guide for Software 2.3.6

The features of the new software are explained in the new user manual.

Designed For You

  • Distinctly

  • The Degritter is fully automatic, requiring no additional effort
    after the cleaning cycle has started. Use the free time for listening to
    records instead of cleaning them.
  • Simple
    Water Management

  • The machine has a convenient removable water tank for replacing cleaning water.

Ultrasonic Cleaning Architecture

  • 4
    Transducer Layout

  • Ultrasonic cleaning tank that’s in Degritter is purpose built
    for vinyl records. The tank has two ultrasonic transducers on either side
    emitting 120 kHz ultrasonic vibrations, evenly distributing the cleaning
    energy across the record’s surface.
  • Power
  • Frequency

  • The driving frequency of the Power Drive ultrasonic generator sweeps
    between 120-125 kHz. This evens the cavitation energy distribution in the
    water, minimizing losses and giving an uniform cleaning action.
  • 300

  • The average power output of all the washing programs is 300 W. This
    makes Degritter the most powerful ultrasonic record cleaner on
    the market per liter of water. The higher 120 kHz driving frequency keeps
    your records safe.

Clever Features

  • Active

  • Cleaning water is pumped through a replaceable filter during washing.
    Continuous filtration keeps removed dirt from ending back up on the
  • Record
    Safe Temperature Control

  • Degritter monitors water temperature and prevents it from rising to levels
    harmful for vinyl records. High temperatures are managed by automatic
    cooling cycles.
  • Smart

  • Records are dried by a flow of filtered air. Both the drying time and fan
    speed can be adjusted to keep noise levels in check and to prevent static
    electricity build up.


Postwash Rinse Option WITH NEW

Degritter supports rinsing records during washing cycles with the help of
a separate water tank.

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

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.


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 won’t end up back on the

Features of the filtering system:

  • Easy
  • 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, we’ve 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, we’ve 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, it’s possible to clean 7″ and 10″ records as well. For this we’ve
created a set of adapters that can be attached to smaller records to convert
their diameter to 12” and clean them just the same.


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

Degritter is capable of recovering and warning users in the
following situations:

  • sensor
  • water
    temperature too high
  • water
    in the cleaning tank due to switch off during wash
  • external
    water tank missing
  • insufficient
  • pump


Cleaning Fluid

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:

  • Improves
    the cleaning effect further
  • Shortens
    the drying time
  • Creates
    an antistatic layer
     (can also be rinsed off if needed)
  • Fully
    safe for vinyl
