In a hot water pressure washer the design inlet temperature should not be exceeded as it may affect the seals in the internal machinery. The size of the motor that drives the pump to produce the water pressure. The motor size is normally expressed in Kw for an electric washer and HP for an engine driven version. The motor must be correctly sized to match the pump to ensure optimum performance. On cheaper machines the pump may be smaller than the ideal size meaning it has to work harder to create the required flow and pressure and as a consequence will not last as long.
Superheated dry vapor Easily kill germs bacteria viruses and eliminate mold dust mites and all other pathogens using nothing but the most natural cleaning method – superheated steam. At the heart of the ONE Plus™ steam cleaner is a highly-efficient heating element that pressurizes the stainless steel boiler up to 4 times the atmospheric pressure. The resulting low-moisture steam is then superheated up to 320ºF / 160°C – perfect for cleaning and disinfection.
