Steam Cleaner Pressure Washers

If you have ever tried to clean oil or grease with cold water, you know it’s pretty much a losing battle. The grease / oil just turn into globs. The same thing will happen if you’re using a pressure washer that is not steam pressure washers. Steam cleaner pressure washers give you the strength of pressure with the added power of steam. Together, any cleaning job will be done more thoroughly and quickly with a power steam cleaner.

Steam cleaner pressure washers come in various models. There is gas or diesel powered steam pressure washers, or electric models. But you will actually have to decide on two systems of generating power to a power steam cleaner. One will run the steam pressure washer motor itself, the other will be needed to heat the pressurized water in the heating coil.

The pump and motor of the power steam cleaner powers the flow and pressure of the water. The burners and coils of steam cleaner pressure washers are separate systems and utilize a separate motor. This motor can be electric, propane, gas, or diesel, and its sole purpose is to heat the water in the heating coil of the power steam cleaner.

For contractors who need steam cleaner pressure washers that are portable, because they often work away from electrical sources, a 12-volt battery is sometimes used to supply electric to an electric burner motor. This adds weight to the unit, but the value of having a steam pressure washer is worth it. Heat and pressure combined are the best ways to effectively clean in almost every circumstance.

An electric steam pressure washer is available with a diesel (#1 home heating oil, kerosene, or #1 or #2 diesel) fired burner or a natural gas or propane fired burner. These electric models offer 2,000 – 3,000 PSI and up to 4.5 GPM. Electric power steam cleaner offers adjustable thermostats with up to 240° F steam.
