Achieve Pristine Results with a High Pressure Sprayer  


A high pressure sprayer comes with various nozzles that, when used correctly, allow you to adjust the spray pattern and pressure, ensuring that even the most minuscule particles aren’t missed when cleaning. Industrial pressure washers are relied upon to remove oil stains off surfaces; clean debris, dirt, and mud from earth-moving equipment; and to ensure that internal pipelines are kept free from obstructions, and require a high pressure sprayer for effective results.


As the sole distributor of Cat Pumps in South Africa, we at Bestline Manufacturing understand the importance that selecting the correct pump together with the high pressure sprayer has on determining the efficacy of cleaning applications.


High Pressure Sprayer: Components That Work Together


High Pressure SprayerAs much as we would like to say that using a high pressure sprayer is as easy as connecting the machine to a water source, turning the tap on, and powering up, it isn’t. It is important to note that every component of a pressure washer is bought with the amount of PSI that it produces in mind. Oversizing or undersizing your pump will damage your pressure washer, the incorrect hose and connectors will render it non-operational, and selecting the incorrect nozzles for an intended application will prove to be a safety risk to the user of the high pressure sprayer and damage the surface that needs to be cleaned.


How to Use a High Pressure Sprayer Correctly


Understanding the symbiotic relationship that each component has will ensure that your high pressure sprayer is operated correctly and efficiently for the best possible results. Depending on cleaning requirements, a high-pressure washer can be portable or fixed. At the heart of a pressure washer sprayer is the pump, forcing water at the required pressure through the hose and nozzles. The forced flow from the pump is extremely powerful, and we at Bestline Manufacturing would suggest that before using the high pressure sprayer, you test the spray on an inconspicuous area first. You can start with a wider spray setting until you are comfortable with the force being produced and then progress to a stronger spray.


Selecting the Right Nozzle


A high pressure sprayer usually comes with colour-coded nozzles that denote the spray pattern and vary from naught to 400.


  • The low-pressure 400angled spray of the white nozzles is ideal for cleaning large areas, such as driveways and sensitive surfaces like windows.
  • Producing a moderately pressured spray is the 250green nozzle, which mildly sweeps surfaces clean of mud and dirt.
  • For more ingrained dirt and stains, a 150angled spray is best. The yellow nozzle produces a strong spray of water, which may damage some surfaces if not tested first.
  • The zero-degree nozzle is ideal for industrial pressure washers as the intense force produced by the spray lifts heavier stains and ingrained dirt off hard surfaces


Operating a Pressure Washer Safely


A high pressure sprayer is a powerful cleaning tool and it is crucial for your safety, and the safety of those around you, that you exercise caution at all times when using it.


  • As most pressure washers are operated electrically, wearing rubber-soled shoes will offer some insulation. When operating industrial pressure washers, PPE clothing is a must.
  • Never point the pressure washer at others or use it to move objects out of the way.
  • Always follow operating safety instructions.
