I was thinking about Evaporust but wow almost $300 to fill it. I wonder how hard it is to buy the concentrate?

We had one at work to clean firearms. Very efficient at removing carbon on firearm parts. For the really small parts such as screws and springs we would put them in a glass jar filled with the cleaning fluid then put the jar into the cleaner. It was so efficient that after the ultra sonic cleaning the parts had to be placed on an oil bath to replenish the oils taken out of the metal. Once I put my carbs in there to clean. Did a fantastic job but turned them a copper color. They actually looked like they were copper plated. I still have them but I never reinstalled them.

Joel, I really can't remember as it was several years ago. I do remember we used a combination of solvent and water.
These cleaners were about $7k each.
We had four. They were pretty big cleaning vats as we would put in several AR15 barrels and/or Remington 870 shot gun barrels and their parts. None of our weapons had any type of bluing so I'm not sure what this cleaner would do to the finish. Usually we would leave them overnite for a deep sonic cleaning. After removing from the cleaning solution everything was flushed with water to remove the solvent. Then all the parts were then put in gun oil vats for 24hrs to replenish the oil that was leached out. The worse part was having to wipe off all the excess gun oil prior to reassembly.

I contacted a friend of mine and he's checking on it. Hopefully he'll get back with me tomorrow and I'll let you know.
