Pressure washing machines are ideal for cleaning conveyor belts. These machines have sufficient output power to blast off dirt and dust from conveyor belts. For the sake of convenience, it is better to divide conveyor belts into two categories -- conveyor belts in food industries and conveyor belts in non-food industries.
The difference between the two sectors - that is, food and beverage sector and non-food sector, is in choosing the pressure washing machines. While electric pressure washers are preferred in food and beverage industry, most high pressure washers will do in non-food industries.
Most cleaning workers choose electric pressure washers because these machines produce no fumes and less noise than fuel powered machines. Since they have no combustion engine and no exhaust, these machines do not increase the particulate levels or humidity of a storeroom. It must be noted that particulate and humidity can adversely affect the food products and the health of those in the room.
These issues are generally not considerations when cleaning in well-ventilated, non-food environments. Cleaning workers normally opt for one of the most sophisticated high pressure washers. The following are some tips to choose the best pressure washers for cleaning conveyor belts in non-food industries.
There are countless models of power washers available on the Internet. The key is to select wisely. The two factors that should be considered most are configuration of the machine and the brand of the machine.
The best pressure washers should have a reasonably high pressure level, ideally less than 3000 psi. Cleaning conveyor belts does not require the power of high pressure washers, as the pressure levels could damage certain surfaces. Flow rate also should be kept minimal. Any machines having a flow rate of less than 2 GPM will do, especially for indoor cleaning. Machines with low flow rate are preferred because they ensure the surfaces dry up quickly.
Another factor in the configuration of the machines is output temperature. Hot water pressure washers are the most popular. Daimer® machines offer a maximum hot water output temperature of 210°F, with a steam temperature of 330°F.
The most sophisticated machines make use of tri mode technology. Such machines can provide cold water, hot water, and steam output. For conveyor belt cleaning, hot water pressure washers are a good choice, considering the cost-effectiveness and efficiency.
One must check the use of technologies in the machine, too. The advent of technology has changed the way a commercial pressure washer is used. Daimer®'s Automatic Shut Off Technology™ (AST®) is a good example for this. When using machines having this technology, the operator can control the on and off operations of the machine from the spray gun. It makes handling the machine easier and cleaning much quicker.
It is better and safer to choose a brand that has stood the test of time. Daimer®, a supplier with a number of years of experience in the cleaning industry, is a safe bet. The company offers high quality commercial pressure washer models.
For conveyor belt cleaning in non-food sectors, it is better to choose machines from the Super Max™ series. For instance, the Super Max™ 7000 is an excellent choice. For cleaning conveyor belts in the food and beverage industry, machines from the Vapor-Flo® series can be a more suitable choice.
