Advantages of Hot Water Pressure Cleaners

High pressure cleaners offer advantages in terms of economy, cleaning results and environmental impact.

Jetwave Group offers a complete range of Karcher high pressure cleaners including cold and hot water models.

This week blog looks at the advantages of hot water pressure cleaners.

Cold water pressure cleaners are ideal for basic cleaning tasks including blasting away sand, caked on dirt and mud or even stripping paint.

When combined with detergent cold water pressure cleaners are a simple and effective cleaning solution.

Heat accelerates chemical reactions, according to Karcher raising the water temperature by 20o increase reaction speed fourfold offering faster and more effective cleaning.

When looking for a superior cleaning solution Karcher’s hot water pressure cleaners offer impressive advantages that are explored below.


Better Cleaning Results

Whilst cold water pressure cleaners are good for blasting away caked on dirt and mud, for cleaning applications involving grease and oil are best cleaned with a hot water cleaner.

Hot water easily softens congealed oil and grease making it easier to remove.

Reduced Cleaning Agent Consumption

Grease, oil and resins can usually be removed with simple hot water, therefore owners of hot water pressure cleaner can significantly reduce the amount of detergents they use when cleaning or in some cases omits its use entirely.

Reducing or omitting detergents whilst cleaning will provide significant costs savings, protects the environment from contaminated water runoff and conserves resources.

Shorter Drying Times

Surfaces cleaned with hot water are able to dry faster due to the residual heat, this is of great advantage for applications where cleaning is part of a wider processing where delays need to be kept to a minimum.

With cleaned surfaces and units drying faster they are able to progress for further processing faster without long delays.

Improved Hygiene

The use of hot water in cleaning greatly reduces the level and spread of germs on surfaces.

For applications where hygiene is paramount such as in food processing the use of hot water pressure cleaning in conjunction disinfectant offers the greatest levels of germ reduction ensuring cleaned surfaces is germ free and hygienic for future use.

Shorter Working Time

According to Karcher using hot water can reduce cleaning times by up to 35% whilst providing significantly cleaner results.

With shorter timeframes needed to complete cleaning, productivity will increase allowing for more surfaces and units being cleaned efficiently and more cost effectively.

A clear advantage with hot water

Hot water high-pressure cleaners can raise the water temperature from around 12°C to as much as 155°C. This allows a reduction of the working pressure, cleaning time and the amount of detergent required. Cleaning with hot water therefore offers numerous options for optimizing the cleaning process, as well as impressive advantages.

Better cleaning result

Hot water softens congealed oil and grease and significantly improves emulsification, making it very easy remove. In the food industry, proteins and grease can be loosened extremely effectively with hot water.

Reduced cleaning agent consumption

Grease, oil, resin, etc. can usually be removed with just hot water, so significantly less detergent can be used or detergent can be omitted entirely. In addition to cost savings, this protects the environment and conserves resources.

Shorter drying time

Surfaces cleaned with hot water dry faster thanks to the heat and are thus ready for subsequent processing or further use faster.

Improved hygiene

A significant reduction in germs can be demonstrated after cleaning with hot water. For many hygiene requirements, this germ reduction method without disinfectant is completely sufficient.

Shorter working time

Hot water results in faster dirt loosening and thus significant time savings of up to 35%. This means that a wide range of cleaning tasks can be carried out efficiently and cost-effectively.

Higher temperature for better results

Heat energy is an important factor in the cleaning process. Heat accelerates chemical processes; every 10°C increase in temperature doubles the reaction speed. Raising the temperature by 20°C increases the reaction speed fourfold. Oil, grease and soot are dislodged more quickly and can be removed more easily. The emulsion of oil and grease in water is accelerated. A heated surface also dries more quickly. In practice, higher water temperatures can reduce cleaning times by up to 35% – with significantly better results. By reducing the water volume, a steam temperature as high as 155°C can also be achieved. The combination of mineral-free steam and pressure can loosen even the most stubborn dirt. This ensures high cleaning performance, even without chemical additives. The steam stage is perfect for removing bitumen coatings; paint coatings in general, soot deposits, lichens and algae.
