|Cleaning in industrial settings can take up lots of time, effort and patience. This is why manufacturers continue to research and develop better and more advanced cleaning machines to make industrial cleaning tasks easier and faster. As a result, you can now choose from a range of cleaning machines designed for industrial settings. Industrial steam cleaners are one of the most versatile class of cleaning machines available today.
Industrial steam cleaners are ruggedly built steam cleaning machines that can easily withstand the demands of industrial environments. The high-quality, stainless steel components of these steam cleaning machines, designed to withstand temperatures of up to 360°F, make them reliable and durable even when faced with challenging cleaning requirements. Superior construction also means that industrial versions of steam cleaners can be more expensive than their less robust counterparts.
Temperatures generated by industrial models of steam cleaners can reach extremely high levels of up to 360ºF. These super-hot steam temperatures dissolve and soften stubborn dirt and grime that accumulates on parts and components. While these machines feature higher pressure levels than their commercial counterparts, up to 150 psi, they do not feature sufficient pressure or power for handling heavy-duty degreasing tasks. For these purposes industrial users should consult steam pressure washers.
Another steam-related fact about quality steam cleaners is that the density of steam they generate is about 200% greater than the density of steam generated by standard or lower-quality steam cleaners. This high steam density increases productivity by speeding up the cleaning process.
Industrial environments are generally vast areas. To enable continuous steam cleaning of these large areas across long periods of time, industrial models of steam cleaners feature boilers and detergent chambers with huge capacities. Steam cleaning machines also include continuous refill that enables non-stop production of vaporized steam, working continuously until the job is done. These machines have a boiler tank and a refill chamber. The water in the boiler tank remains super-heated. As needed, water is drawn into the boiler tank from the refill chamber and mixed with the super-heated water. Operators can add water to the non-pressurized refill chamber without stopping to cool, refill, and reheat the machine.
Industrial versions of steam cleaners may also feature steam vacuuming capability for applications that require simultaneous steam cleaning and extraction functions. Steam vacuuming eliminates the need for wiping surfaces with a towel or a brush after applying steam to surfaces. So, while simple steam cleaning requires you to keep wiping surfaces, steam vacuuming greatly simplifies and speeds up the cleaning process.
Today, reputable distributors offer steam cleaners with optional features like chewing gum removal technology and attachments. Such additional features enhance the extraction capacity of steam cleaning machines and empower them to manage the most demanding cleaning jobs.
Traditional cleaning techniques used by conventional cleaning machines often require the addition of chemical sanitizers to disinfect surfaces. However, in the case of industrial steam cleaners, you do not have to depend on hazardous chemicals to ensure sanitization. The power of steam cam simultaneously clean and sanitize a variety of surfaces. For disinfecting capabilities, some industrial steam cleaners even feature anti-bacterial technology to remove up to 99.9% of bacteria.
As people recognize the significance of such ‘green’ cleaning methods, it makes sense to purchase KleenJet® industrial steam cleaners.
