Nitty Gritty Record Cleaning Machines and Supplies

How it Works

Everyone who values their record collection knows that records need
to be maintained in a clean condition in order  to sound their best and to preserve the quality of their fragile surfaces. Record cleaning devices operate on a number of different theories and principles, but they all have one thing in common: they do NOT totally clean all the pollutants from record grooves; they leave film, grease, residue, micro dust, static electricity, carbon fiber hair, and mold release compounds behind. These remaining pollutants prevent music lovers from hearing all the music on the record (regardless of the quality of the playback system), and they cause premature wear of the record and phono stylus.

Until now, no available record cleaning system was accepted by professionals and enthusiasts alike as producing the desired result: clean records. No single system was able to rid a record's surface of film, grease, residue, and dust while it eliminated static electricity and left a purified vinyl disc.

Nitty Gritty offers such a system. Records cleaned on a Nitty Gritty system reproduce all the music stored in their grooves without the interference and masking of record pollutants. The improvement in sound that a Nitty Gritty cleaning makes is so dramatic that the benefit of upgrading one component of a hi-fi system is less significant by comparison. The Nitty Gritty record cleaning system has established itself as an essential component in every hi-fi system.

The first step of the Nitty Gritty record cleaning process is to scrub the record with a special fluid wash. Nitty Gritty offers two record cleaning washes. PURIFIER 2 is the stronger cleaner, capable of overpowering the most stubborn residue or grease. It contains a degreaser, a static neutralizer, a mild detergent, and surfactant. PURIFIER 2 has a remarkably low 6 parts solid per million dissolved solids, making it residue free. PURIFIER 1 is recommended for 78 RPM records as it contains no alcohol. Both Purifiers are formulated from chemicals that are totally biodegradable. The Nitty Gritty VAC-SWEEP brush has thousands of microscopic fibers that gently scrub the record's grooves. Its short bristles make the most efficient use of Nitty Gritty’s special cleaning fluids, and its softness protects a record from abrasion

The second step of the Nitty Gritty record cleaning process is to vacuum the scrubbed record. This is accomplished with a Nitty Gritty vacuuming machine.

Possibly the most unique part of the Nitty Gritty system is the "hemicylindrical lip interface". Through these fiber covered lips the vacuum motor suctions a dry path across the entire grooved with the record as well as maximize the velocity of the air, utilizing the "venturi effect". The VAC-SWEEP provides additional scrubbing while it cushions contact with the record, protecting the fragile record grooves.

The record is supported on the rotating platform which is designed to eliminate any contact with the record grooves, preventing recontamination of the first side cleaned while the second side is cleaned.

The vacuum motor is directly coupled to the lips, providing the most powerful, effective design possible. The motor is an industrial grade,flow-through type, providing the user with trouble-free cleanings.
