Non-food industry equipment cleaners are ideal for cleaning heavy-duty industrial equipment and areas, such as floors and walls. These cleaning machines remove grease, carbon black, and many other types of dirt and impurities from metal, vinyl, tile, and similar surfaces.

The power and effectiveness of non-food industry equipment cleaners can be attributed to the high pressure level, high temperature, and productivity-enhancing features of these machines. These aspects are discussed in more detail as follows:

Power Options
Non-food industry equipment cleaners offer many power methods and options to buyers. You can purchase equipment that are wholly powered and heated by electricity, or machines that are powered by electricity and heated by propane or oil. Some machines are powered by gasoline, propane, or diesel, and heated by propane or oil. Whichever machine you select, make sure it is right for the conditions you will be working under. If electricity supply is uncertain, then a machine powered by gasoline, propane, or diesel is the right choice.

Some machines emit fumes, such as those powered by gasoline and diesel, or heated by oil. To use the machine for indoor cleaning, you should ensure that it has a long hose. Some machines have hoses as long as 50 feet and you can add more length to them, if required.

Machines powered by electricity need to be compatible with power configurations in your country. Different voltage, phases, and frequency should be factored in when you are selecting non-food industry equipment cleaners that have electric motors.

Durability
Equipment cleaners for non-food industry should be durable. Every part should be high-quality, to ensure optimum performance and maximum efficiency. One way to ensure this is to buy the equipment from well-known brands. At the very least, the machine should have a heavy-duty motor, stainless steel heating coils, corrosion resistant wand, and chip and chemical resistant housing.

Efficiency
Certain features enhance the efficiency of these machines. A machine with high temperature levels is ideal for degreasing applications. Commercial hot pressure washers attain steam temperatures as high as 330°F. These machines have heavy-duty heating coils, which enable quick heating of water, as little as 30 seconds in some models. There are many reputed brands on the market that offer a variety of pressure wash systems, such as hot water pressure washers, electric powered pressure washer machines, and cold water pressure wash systems, with wonderful levels of pressure ranging from 750 to 8000 psi.

An electric powered pressure washer is popular because electricity is widely available, but where electricity is short in supply, you will need to use non-electricity-powered high pressure washer machines. A high pressure washer may have pressure levels of up to 4000 psi, which is highly recommended for tough degreasing applications, such as cleaning hard surfaces in industrial manufacturing units.

When cleaning industrial equipment, make sure to spot test the machinery to assess its tolerance to high pressure levels. Some high pressure washer machines feature a combination of moderately high pressure and very high temperature, enabling contractors to undertake degreasing for lightweight, less robust industrial equipment.

Another aspect to consider is portability. If you expect to clean very large areas or need to travel with your equipment, you should invest in a portable pressure washer. A portable pressure washer might have smaller wheels for limited mobility. You can remove the wheels and have the machine fitted on a trailer for long distance journeys. There is no dearth of high quality pressure wash systems for cleaning industrial equipment. You just have to choose the right one.
