I don't know about Universal GSM, but for my Mirae's nozzles I use IPA and small US-bath.

Ultrasonic Bath will be always your best choice. For cleaning solution you have to make more research. It will depend on your Nozzles material, company and ultrasonic bath requirements. For some ultrasonic baths alcohol might go in flames(some of them have heaters). The source of your ultrasonic bath might be a good place to look for the cleaning solution.

If you have Flexhead nozzles you need to be careful that whatever solvent you use does not attack the gasket adhesive. I might try a couple of drops of a spray like WD-40 or LPS. Let it soak for a few minutes and blow it out with compressed air. Repeat using a water soluable detergent like simple green or Scott's Huricane. Rinse and blow it dry. If you do have Flex head nozzles you should be able to do this and keep the cleaners off the the gaskets (petroleum solvents will for sure disolve the adhesive). On the Flexhead nozzles use a snap ring tool to pull the keeper so you can remove the screen, this will give you more access to the tip as well as allow you to thoroughy clean the screen.

We've been using S100 total cycle cleaner for years - diluted in ultrasonic bath for about 10 minutes. Blow dry with medium psi nozzle. Works great.
