    Home Made Ultrasonic Cleaning Tank

    Hi Nabeel,The glue is holding, I don't use the tank alot though, just for hobby purposes.The glue is a 2 component epoxy glue called Rectavit liquid steel, that is suited for metal and hard plastics.Rectavit is a Belgian company, if you don't find it where you live, do a google search on "epoxy metal to acrylic" and it will show you a list of other epoxy glue brands that are suited for you.When you glue, make sure both surfaces are very clean and degreased, otherwise it will not hold.

  • Monitoring Residential Water Usage by Reading Municipal Water Meter With Hall Effect Sensor + Arduino

    I did the magnetic test with my smartphone, but saw no movement of the compass, so I suppose the hall sensor won't work.There is howerver a rotating silver/red thing (see top left part of the meter), so I will probably be able to track it with this, what do you think ?https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Obstacle-Avoidance-Module-Infrared-Reflectance-Module-Tracing-Sensor-TCRT5000-FZ1018/1991372499.html?aff_platform=aaf&cpt=1505679778751&sk=rvbiMby&aff_trace_key=498dd21036584208be94b733ee5b2256-1505679778751-05214-rvbiMby&terminal_id=cb01436d22e741fb87495e637780c1c6

    Home Made Ultrasonic Cleaning Tank

    I am going to transform an old french frying tank see picture) into an ultrasonic cleaning tank.The resistance to warm the oil can serve to warm the cleaning fluid, I just have to glue the transducers under the tank.I ordered transducers and electronics at ali-express, as soon as they are delivered, I'll let you know how it went.I found an epoxy glue called fluid steel that is boiling water resistant, but it also says "opvangen van trillingen"Do you think it will do the job or will it absorb the vibrations so nothing goes into the cleaning fluid ?opvangen (ww.)to collect ; to admit ; to receive ; to intercept ; to absorb ; to catch on way ; to bear ; to capture ; to accomodate ; to give shelter ; to take ; to catch ; to pick-up ; to pick up ; to compensatehttp://www.rectavit.b...
