Pressure Washer Equipment-Agricultural Applications

Pressure washer equipment is not only used in commercial and industrial settings, it is very handy for farmers and agricultural companies. Most farm equipment gathers soil, mud, and grease during the planting, threshing, winnowing, and gathering processes. Some equipment used for the basic processing of harvest also requires extensive and frequent cleaning to ensure proper functionality. Your choice of pressure washer equipment depends on the level of grime and the availability of electricity in the cleaning area.

Using Pressure Washer Equipment on Farms
A basic cold water machine is perfectly fine for most agricultural applications, where the high pressure levels (up to 5000 psi) compensate for lack of heat. Besides being lighter and cheaper, a cold water machine consumes less electricity or fuel. A good green chemical facilitates better cleaning. To avoid harm to bodies of water and land through runoff, use a plant based, eco-friendly detergent, such as the Eco-Green® line sold by Daimer®. Apply the solution a few minutes prior to cleaning. This allows for the softening of dirt and grease, which the spray of water will clear away. To further enhance the cleaning power, you may wish to consider a hot water or steam pressure washing system, as higher temperatures greatly increase cleaning proficiency.

In general, agricultural implements can withstand high pressure levels as they are made of solid metals. Be more careful with electronic or mechanical devices. If you are working outdoors, away from electricity sources, you should purchase gasoline or propane pressure washers.

Using Pressure Washer Equipment for Public Areas

The tough and durable construction of pressure washer equipment makes it suitable for cleaning public areas, including roads, parking lots, sidewalks, and building exteriors. Places like movie theaters, recreational facilities, stadiums, and parks are also places that can benefit from the use of pressure washing machines. Since these areas are often subject to tough deposits and stains, the strong cleaning power of these machines is well suited for difficult applications. Daimer®, a leading distributer of cleaning products, offers many types of pressure washer equipment for cleaning public areas.

For many, chewing gum removal is one of the toughest tasks when it comes to cleaning roads, sidewalks, and even benches. The line of KleenJet® GUM-EXTERMINATOR® steam cleaners by Daimer® use a combination of high steam temperatures, vacuum extraction, gum solution, and stainless steel brushes to rapidly remove chewing gum. However, for businesses that require the use of a pressure washer for other applications, Daimer's pressure washing systems can also be used to remove chewing gum. Working differently than steam celaners, pressure cleaners soften gum with high temperatures and blast the residues away with high pressure levels.

Graffiti removal is another tough job that can be accomplished through the use of a power pressure cleaner. When using pressure washing equipment to remove graffiti, it is important to ensure that the pressure levels will not damage the surface that needs to be cleaned. In many cases, adding an eco-friendly cleaning agent can increase the speed and effectiveness of the pressure washing machine. For this reason, Daimer® supplies Eco-Green® Graffiti Remover. This non-toxic, biodegradable solution contains lifters and emulsifiers to virtually raise graffiti right off the surfaces for quick and easy removal. More information about pressure washer equipment
