Pressure washing may also use high temperatures for removing grease, sugar, and proteins. Organic matter and oil tend to coagulate at room temperature. Heat melts them and the spray of water washes away the residue. While pressure levels alone create a powerful force, heated machines allow for quicker and easier cleaning.
Pressure washer equipment also reduces the need for detergents. High pressure levels can remove most dirt, including layers of chemicals or grease, using the mechanical force of the water spray. In some instances where detergents are necessary, pressure washer equipment from Daimer®, such as the Super Max™ 9000, are equipped with a siphon-type chemical application technology. This allows the user to spray detergent on the surface while cleaning to enhance cleaning power and speed up the cleaning process further.
Not all commercial industrial applications require extremely high pressure levels. Machines such as the Super Max™ 15900 have pressure levels as high as 3000 psi and are ideal for cleaning factory floors and manufacturing/processing plants. However, these high pressure levels can damage certain surfaces such as antique wood, car exteriors, and bricks. Machines such as the Vapor-Flo® 8025, with pressure levels of 1450 psi and 0.4 GPM flow rate, are ideal for pressure washing cars, boats, SUVs, and trucks.
