High Pressure Cleaner

How Do You Choose the Right High Pressure Cleaner for Your Business?

Making the right decision with regards to which high pressure cleaner you purchase for your business, will determine the amount of value and return that you get out of your investment. Money well spent on equipment that will fulfil all your demands and expectations, will provide you with great returns on your investment. Too little or too much power will end in frustration and a lack of use of your high pressure cleaning equipment, which just completely defeats the purpose of the investment.

High-pressure cleaner machines are used in the removal of all types of dirt and grime from hard surfaces. The pressure used to eject fluids through the nozzle, is high enough that it weakens the adhesive bond which dirt particles have with a substrate. This is achieved far superiorly to what you could manage with a garden hose and far more effective than you would be able to achieve with some tough elbow grease.

How Do High Pressure Cleaners Work?

Before going out to buy high pressure cleaners for your business, it will pay to familiarise yourself with its inner workings before you do. The theory behind its operation is pretty straight forward. A hose is connected to the system and will then be turned on. This will serve as a water supply. The equipment comes complete with a powerful pump, which ejects a water and detergent mix at incredibly high pressures. These pressures can reach as high as 250 bar, in stark contrast to the 4 bar achieved by the common garden hose.

Aside from achieving higher water pressure, high pressure cleaners are also far better at conserving water than conventional garden hoses. The garden hose will eject about 3 000 litres of water during an hour’s operation, while the pressure cleaner will only eject roughly 450 litres each hour. Even extremely high pressure pumps will average about a thousand litres of water per hour, which is still significantly less than a garden hose.

Making the Right High Pressure Cleaner Purchasing Decision

Even though you will find so many different models of this cleaning equipment, they can generally be divided into two categories – units that are able to use cold water and then units that are for the exclusive use with cold water. The hot water unit is designed with parts that cannot contract or expand during operation. It will therefore never leak or sustain damage from the hot water levels.

Whether you buy a hot water or cold water unit will depend on the exact use and intent of the equipment. If you intend to use it for the removal of greasy and stubborn grime, then a hot water unit will be greatly suitable. Everyday surfaces that are covered in grime and dirt by rain and pollution can very easily be cleaned with cold water units.
