Ultrasound Preventive Maintenance

Preventive Maintenance is critical! Often times technicians feel if their unit is working, why get it? Well, the answer is simple. The dust that the filters are supposed to keep out, don’t actually do that great of a job. small dust particles can still find it’s way into your machine causing troubles. For instance, it can build up on a high voltage board and create a small fire. This can be a little scary smelling a burning smell in the room coming from your ultrasound unit.

Furthermore, dust can also build up an insulating layer over all of your boards and cause them to overheat. Remember, electronics runs on electricity and they get hot so good air flow around the boards are critical. It can land on electrical components and cause them to short out.
