High-Pressure Cleaners Clean Better

High-pressure cleaners are devices made up of a motor, pressure pump, hoses, nozzles, and accessories to create a stream of high-pressure water of the required volume and velocity. There are various types of high-pressure cleaners to suit particular cleaning jobs. Several benefits come with purchasing a high-pressure cleaner aimed specifically at residential users. The primary benefit is cost. High-pressure cleaners aimed at the homeowner are less costly than their industrial counterparts. They usually are also more compact, making them easier to move around and to store while not in use. The only practical difference between residential and industrial units is power. Residential units operate at lower pressure with less water volume. They are designed for household tasks and light industrial work, and thus can’t match the power of industrial machines. One needs to be careful not to buy a unit that provides too much power for a specific application as these can damage the surface being cleaned.

High-pressure cleaners are the perfect tool for a wide range of cleaning jobs. Whether at home or your business, most facilities require intensive cleaning to some degree and high-pressure cleaners make these cleaning jobs significantly less tedious. They generally clean more thoroughly, with far less effort, than manual washing does.

High PressureHow High-Pressure Cleaners Work

Water is referred to as the universal solvent because it dissolves far more substances than most other liquids. This is why water is the most commonly used cleaning agent in high-pressure cleaners. These units use pressurised water, generally between 34 and 70 MPa, to remove dirt, grime, loose paint, mould and any stubborn residue from houses, vehicles, walkways, buildings, pipes and more. Water-soluble dirt is blasted with a stream of high-pressure water until it dissolves and nothing remains on the surface being cleaned. The high pressure provides a mechanical action to weaken the bond between the dirt and the surface to dislodge and dissolve it. The constant water stream then rinses the dissolved dirt away. The volume of water supplied by the pressure pump helps to determine a high-pressure cleaner’s effectiveness and speed in removing and rinsing the dirt away.

A nozzle or spray tip is fitted at the end of the delivery hose. The nozzle shapes the stream of high-pressure water into the desired shape depending on the application. The nozzle makes a major difference to the impact of the high-pressure water on the surface being cleaned. Nozzles come in different orifice sizes, angles of spray and spray patterns. Zero-degree angles would be for high power blasting and 15-degree angles are ideal for stripping. Spray patterns, such as cone, hollow cone and flat fan, are available for different applications.

The combination of water flow rate, nozzle type and distance from the surface being cleaned determines how effectively a high-pressure cleaner will function. Some high-pressure cleaners come with accessories, such as brush nozzles, to improve effectiveness or address specific applications.

High-Pressure Cleaners – the Only Solution

Businesses and homeowners are often confronted with a similar problem, namely dirty equipment that requires deep cleaning. This equipment can often not be properly cleaned by hand. A high-pressure cleaning system is invariably the answer.
