Just as the name suggests, the term 'heat exchanger' refers to equipment designed to transfer heat efficiently from one medium to another. Heat exchangers are used in a wide range of environments such as petrochemical plants, space heating, air conditioning, chemical plants, refrigeration, natural gas processing, sewage treatment and petroleum refineries. To ensure they continue to function perfectly, the exchanger tubes need to be cleaned regularly. Traditionally, this process involved removing the exchanger tubes from the system, brushing off the visible dirt or grease deposits and then using a water jet to wash away any remaining debris. Thankfully, this procedure has become a lot easier with the advent of high pressure washers.
Today, heat exchangers are technologically advanced and hence demand the use of sophisticated cleaning machines, like power cleaners. Ideally, these hot water pressure washers must be capable of providing the best cleaning results without causing any damage to the delicate components in heat exchangers. New generation pressure washing machines offer faster and more efficient cleaning results. These pressure washers are also able to clean tight bends without having to disassemble them.
In the past, maintenance professionals had to use chemicals to remove calcium deposits and grease buildup on exchanger tubes. Thanks to the powerful cleaning capabilities of heated high pressure washers, the tube bundles in heat exchangers can now be maintained more efficiently with conventional power cleaners. The hot steam helps dissolve tough particles so that there is no need to use cleaning chemicals. Most importantly, these new pressure washers effectively access and clean all those hard-to-reach spots that were simply unreachable for old-style pressure cleaning equipment.
The Super Max™ 12800 from Daimer® is a powerful pressure washer with tri-mode capabilities. Such machines function as hot water pressure washers, cold water power cleaners and steam power cleaning equipment. In addition to being mobile and portable, this commercial pressure washer is also trailer mountable. What makes it the best pressure washer for cleaning heating exchangers is its ability to attain high temperatures, moderate pressure levels reaching 1000 psi and flow rates of up to 2 GPM. These moderate specifications offer tremendous cleaning capabilities without risk to delicate components of heat exchangers. In addition, by generating steam at high temperatures, this pressure washer easily eliminates the toughest dirt buildup and grease from the most inaccessible spots in heat exchangers.
Powered by a 1.5 HP NEMA engine, the Super Max™ 12800 is also available with optional double gun configurations. High pressure washers with two gun configurations enhance the efficiency and productivity of jobs like maintaining heat exchangers since two users can operate the machine simultaneously. The versatility of the Super Max™ 12800 makes it ideal for maintenance applications that demand a moderately-powered, commercial, trailer mountable pressure washer.
Cleaning heat exchangers took long hours of work before these cleaning machines were available. However, the entire job can now be completed much quicker with high-grade pressure washing machines. So, if you still use traditional cleaning techniques for maintaining heat exchangers, it is high time you unleashed the power of high pressure washers.
