Sounds like you are thinking of a hot tank, which uses heat and a strong lye solution to clean steel and iron. Or a heated parts washer, which uses a solvent for stuff that can't go in the lye. 

 

This uses very high frequency sound waves, well above human hearing, to shake the grunge off parts. I use them at the university to clean everything from machine parts to microminiature lab-on-a-chip stuff.

wow thanks for the information I would have never guessed that's how they work. Fascinating technology we come up with these days right!!

I had never seen one until Jay Leno was showing his on a car show. His of course was larger, big enough to put a GT in.  Every shop should have one. The wife did not know she needed one until Xmas rolls around :rolling:

Will it bother the neighborhood dogs?

The sound generally does not get through walls, so it only bugs your dogs. It'll probably make Lily leave the room!

You could ship it to me! I'd take it off your hands!

I use that exact same sonic cleaner and I have a glass bead cabinet. I restore or rebuild carbs for people. Done close to 60 carbs this year with my set up. As long as you don't over fill the sonic cleaner you won't have any issues.
