Hot Water Pressure Washers

Efficient high pressure cleaning. That's what you get when you use hot water mixed with just enough cleaning agent. When you wash the dishes at home, you don't wash them in cold water. It doesn't work. So why shouldn't you wash your greasy machines the same way? All cold water can do is move oil around. Hot water removes it.

Hot water pressure washers are especially effective when cleaning engines, automotive parts or anything with grease and oil. But they'll work on anything from engines, to removing paint from a wall.

With the use of three key elements, a hot water pressure washer can successfully and efficiently work towards removing grease, grime and oily resin. Here's how;

  • Heat- Water temperatures can rise from around 12°C to as much as 155°C. Thus creating a high-speed molecular action that reduces water's surface tension. The benefits from this see the cleaning agent be more active and effectively penetrate grime at a molecular level, producing a much cleaner wash, and then a quicker dry.

  • Agitation- The impact that comes from water pressure and water volume hitting the surface.

  • Soap/Detergent- The cleaning agent used to break down the chemical bond between dirt and the surface. Through use of surfactants, cleaning agents can emulsify the oil and grease so they no longer repel each other, rather combine. This emulsion allows a water wash to carry away dirt, oil and grease all in one.

With the hot water pressure washer using a balance of all three of these key elements, it is easy to see why it can offer a much more efficient clean in comparison to cold water pressure washers.

Producing Better Results

The hot water pressure washer sees a much faster and more hygienic approach to cleaning. While conventional cold water pressure washers can generally achieve the desired results when combined with a cleaning agent, hot water pressure washers get the job done in almost half the time. Gone are the days of spending hours trying to clean grease and oil off things, only to not have cleaned it properly anyway.

With heat accelerating chemical processes, it allows for an increase in reaction speed when the temperature of the water is raised. This means the residue will start to breakdown as soon as the hot water is applied! Therefore, removing residue quicker and easier for a better cleaning result, and not having to use anywhere near as much cleaning agent. Saving you money on cleaning agents.

A heated surface always dries quicker. This reduces the moisture left in and around machines, and therefore reduces the chance of mould or bacteria growing from the moisture. If you are looking to clean machines prior to use, this is very beneficial and time effective.

But here's the best part.

Tasks that seemed to be impossible to clean, are now seemingly possible with the use of hot water. In addition to the heat of the water, when temperatures are rising to 155°C, it creates steam. The steam stage is extremely effective in ways that it can remove most stubborn dirt without even using cleaning agents, and eliminate up to 99% of the bacteria and germs.


Efficiency is Key

With hot water pressure washers, you can save up to 35% of your time. Who doesn't love that? You get more time to go and relax! But not only can you relax, you can relax knowing that you've cleaned your machine or outdoor area efficiently and sufficiently after eliminating up to 99% of bacteria and germs.

You may see the initial price of a professional hot water pressure washer ranging anywhere between $2,000 and $9,000 to be disadvantaging you economically. But that is not the case at all. You are getting away with a bargain. The hot water pressure washer may seem more expensive in the immediate future, but think about the long term. With the addition of hot water, less cleaning agent is required. This is cost efficient and eco-friendly as well.

Overall, with regular use of the hot water pressure washer, you will make up for the cost of it in no time at all, and you will be extremely pleased with the results.

It is advised that caution is exercised when using a hot water pressure washer due to the chemicals that cleaning agents contain, and the temperatures they operate at. Refer to the product manuals for proper and safe operation.
