There are many reasons for using pressure washers for coils and condensers cleaning. The first among them is the unmatched cleaning power of pressure cleaners. These machines offer an output pressure level of up to 8000 psi, which is actually for cold water machines. However, any machine that offers heated output at a pressure level of up to 3000 psi does an efficient job of cleaning coils and condensers.
Another reason for preferring pressure washers for coils and condensers cleaning is the speed and efficient cleaning of these machines. Power washers pump their output on to the hard surfaces and wash away dirt and impure substances stuck on the surfaces.
One potential problem associated with using pressure washers for coils and condensers cleaning is the amount of water transferred to the surfaces. When cleaned with ordinary pressure washing machines, a lot of water gets collected onto the surfaces. Tips to choosing the right machine:
Role of heated output
The most important specification associated with a pressure wash system is its output pressure level. That does not mean that other specifications are insignificant.
You also need to keep the temperature level of the machine in mind, if you are choosing pressure washers for coils and condensers cleaning. The higher the output temperature, the better it is for cleaning coils and condensers.
The high output temperature of a steam system, for instance, improves the cleaning efficiency by helping to break or weaken the bond between dirt and the surface. It also helps to speed up the cleaning process.
Types of heated machines
Three types of commercial pressure washer machines are available, based on the output temperature of the machine. These are cold water pressure cleaner systems, hot water pressure washers, and steam pressure wash machines. Cold water machines offer output at room temperature, whereas hot water pressure washers offer an output temperature of up to 210°F. Steam machines offer the highest output temperature of up to 330°F.
Steam pressure washing equipment are the best of the lot, in terms of speed and efficiency. Hot water machines also do a good job of cleaning coils and condensers.
When cleaning coils and condensers, it would be better to make use of commercial pressure washer machines equipped with automatic shut off technology. Cleaning coils and condensers involves frequent stopping and starting the machines. Frequent switching off and on the machine is both inconvenient to the workers and detrimental to the longevity of the machine.
Automatic shut off technology makes the on and off processes extremely easy. Industrial pressure washers equipped with this technology automatically shut down, when the there is no flow through the output wand for nearly 30 seconds.
The restarting of such industrial pressure washer equipment too is easy. Cleaning workers can switch on the machine by pulling the trigger of the gun. The technology not only makes the cleaning of coils and condensers easier, but ensures that the machines last longer too.
