Industrial pressure washers normally have pressure levels ranging from 1000 to 3500 psi. They will also heat the water to the high temperatures required depending on the job in hand. Commercial pressure washers can reach temperatures as high as 165°Celcius and the combination of heat and pressure removes dirt and grease from surfaces. Sometimes heat is not required so cold water pressure washing is also possible from these machines. This makes them very versatile for a number of different businesses that offer cleaning services. There are many different makes and models to choose from and you should choose the most suitable for your needs.
It is important to set the correct pressure levels for the surface you are cleaning. For instance surfaces like concrete can endure pressures as high as 3000 psi but a car or lorry would not be able to tolerate more than around 1500 psi without damage being done. High pressure washers are often used to clean factories, filling stations, commercial kitchens, airports and other areas where cleanliness is important for health and safety. The machines should be properly maintained at all times due to the stresses of high pressure functioning.
Industrial pressure washers can run on a variety of power sources which again makes them very versatile and depending upon the model, very portable. Much depends upon the type of area you are going to be cleaning, for instance large outdoor areas would be better served by diesel, petrol or gas run machinery whereas a commercial kitchen would be better with electricity.
