The Only surfactant authorized for use with the KirmussAudio KA-RC-1 Ultrasonic Record Restoration System!
300 ml refill for the KA-AS1 Bottle. Provides 5 refills.
How it works: Since both the water and record have the same slight negative charge, water with or without a cleaning solution added in an ultrasonic’s tank with a record spinning cannot see any sonic action in the record’s grooves. Like charges repel, which is why the Kirmuss process sees the record subjected to multiple cycles as the ionizing spray that is applied to the record only temporarily changes the charge of a record to a positive. As the record spins, the charge is reduced. By reapplying the ionizing spray prior to introduction into the sonic’s tank, the opposite charge returns, stripping out films left over by prior cleaning methods then the release agent itself (Shure in the 1970s called this a “pressing oil”).
Thus, a record is restored in four or five two- to five-minute cycles, and not just surfaced cleaned like with other processes.
Note: This surfactant fluid is only for use with the KirmussAudio KA-RC-1 and is not to be used with any other record cleaning system.
