On industrial machines it is normal to use a slower revving motor with a larger pump which means it can be used for longer periods without overheating. Pressure washers can be powered in various ways and each has its advantages. Electric power is the most common source with smaller motors using a 240 volt single phase supply from a conventional plug socket and larger commercial machines using a 3 phase 420 volt supply.
Pressure washers (jet washers) are an invaluable cleaning tool and like many things once you have used one you will wonder how you managed without it but what is a pressure washer? It basically comprises a pump a high pressure hose and a cleaning lance with a trigger switch. Water is passed through the machine and put under pressure by the pump and expelled via the hose and out from the nozzle at the end of the lance. On the face of it quite a simple machine but selecting the right pressure washer is a different matter.
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.
