To ensure proper functioning of heavy equipment used in industrial settings, it is extremely important to maintain the equipment on a regular basis. Accumulation of dirt, grease, and other particles can obstruct the proper functioning of industrial equipment and lead to major maintenance issues. For this reason, maintenance of industrial equipment is the top priority of many cleaning professionals. However, given the huge size, tight spaces, and inaccessible joints in industrial equipment, maintaining these areas is not an easy job. This explains why more and more cleaning experts continue to adopt industrial heavy equipment cleaners.
Designed for Industrial Use
Industrial heavy equipment cleaners combine two powerful aspects required for efficient and fast cleaning of machinery, that are high temperatures and high pressure levels. This combination was absent in the categories of cleaning machines that existed until then. For instance, steamers came with high temperatures but low pressure levels, and power washers featured high pressure levels but not the cleaning power of heat. By combining high temperatures with high pressure levels, leading suppliers designed the perfect industrial heavy equipment cleaners guaranteed to produce superior results.
While the hot water or steam ejected by industrial heavy equipment cleaners dissolves dirt buildup and grease present on machinery, the high pressure levels help blast off the dissolved deposits, leaving the surfaces clean and spotless. The heat does a great work of dissolving the grease, oil, soot, sludge, and other contaminants stuck on the machinery. If paint has started to flake in certain spots, the metal surface has to be effectively phosphatized. For such purposes, it is best to choose power wash systems with wet sandblasting capabilities. Thankfully, industrial versions of power cleaner machines available from the top brands come standard with powerful wet sandblasting functions.
Advantages of High-Grade Power Wash Systems
There are numerous advantages of using quality industrial pressure washers to maintain heavy equipment. Ruggedly constructed and expertly designed versions of power pressure washers help accomplish superior results without demanding too much effort or time from users. Industrial equipment that are thoroughly cleaned with gas pressure washers help enhance user productivity since all machines function in top form. Equipment that are cleaned with electric pressure washers also eliminate the risk of employee accidents. Most importantly, steam power washers clean off sludge, mud, and grease from equipment to keep the paint intact and the equipment protected from rusting. The cleaning action of industrial pressure washers thus helps extend the life of industrial equipment.
A Thought for the Environment
The cleaning materials and techniques used to maintain industrial equipment must necessarily adhere to the strict guidelines of the environment quality control department. Ideally, cleaning professionals are expected to adopt green cleaning techniques and products that pose no threat to the environment. Heated pressure washers, be it gas pressure washers or electric pressure washers, utilize the power of hot water or steam to clean the surfaces. The steam ejected by industrial pressure washers does not pollute the environment and is thus an eco-friendly cleaning agent. For best results, choose steam power washers featuring pressure levels of up to 3000 psi, flow rates of 5 gpm, and two-gun configurations.
