Businesses operating in different sectors have different cleaning requirements. It is because of these varying requirements that different models high pressure cleaners are required. One industry’s high pressure cleaning needs will differ from another and having access to the correct cleaning solutions will impact the efficiency and effectiveness of your business operations.
High pressure cleaners are mechanical devices designed to primarily get rid of dirt, grease, grime and other contaminants from the surface of buildings, machines and vehicles. These units make use of increased pressure and a high flow rate that propels detergent and water at surfaces. Different high pressure cleaners can spray hot or cold water, depending on the application.
The high pressure cleaner works when an engine – be it an electronic or motor engine – pumps water from a source and then delivers it at high pressure through a nozzle. The water may be heated by gas, fuel oil or electricity. The cold or hot water will pass through the nozzle creating a heightened pressure at the end of the lance or jetting gun.
Cold Water Pressure Cleaners
This is one of the most popular types of high pressure cleaners available on the market today. Cold-water units are perfectly ideal for cleaning yards, cars, machines, workshops or premises. Heavier duty units can be used in the agriculture, industrial and construction sectors. These sectors may require the highest pressure for cleaning.
Depending on the frequency and size of cleaning required, you could purchase these cleaners as either heavy duty or compact equipment.
The Hot Water Pressure Cleaner
When pigments, oils and fats found in dirt cake onto surfaces, machinery or equipment, only hot water mixed with effective detergent will be able to quickly clean the required surface. The hot water pressure cleaner will deliver heightened pressure water at temperatures that can reach hundreds of degrees. The detergents, when mixed with these levels of heat can then effectively penetrate soil and dirt and keep it emulsified until it’s washed away by hot water.
One added advantage of making use of a high pressure cleaner is that it uses less detergent than its cold-water counterpart.
Stationary High Pressure Cleaners
Companies decide to invest in stationary high pressure cleaners for various reasons. Cold and hot pressure cleaners can come in stationary equipment which is perfectly suitable for disinfecting and cleaning various areas while still being able to save space. These units will reduce the need for long cables and water hoses and is usually installed at areas that require frequent cleaning.
