About BuBclean

    Our vision:

    “Innovate in ultrasonic cleaning”

    Ultrasonic cleaning is good, but not (always) good enough. This was our thought when we started BuBclean in 2013. Using our knowledge from the University of Twente, we develop innovative products and technologies for ultrasonic cleaning, which hasn’t seen much development in over 70 years.
