Tekwell Services is proud to announce that they have purchased a new custom-designed Stoelting Lewis Ultrasonic Cleaning Unit to enhance Tekwell’s in shop electric motor repair service offerings for customers.

This unit uses high frequency sound waves and a cleaning solution to clean and remove contaminants from parts and saves a lot of time in the process. Parts such as armatures, wound rotors, synchronous coils, field frames, stators, induction rotors, clutch and brake coils can be cleaned in a fraction of the time used previously and with better results.
