Need Help Choosing a home or Commercial Vapor Steam Cleaner?
below is some information that
may help you decide
Commercial Steam Cleaner,
Commercial Steam Cleaner,
Vapor 6 Industrial Steam Cleaner) A continuous fill
steamer (Dual Tank System) allows you to add water on the fly. In other
words, when the steamer is low on water you can add water WITHOUT
shutting it down. You can then immediately pick back up where you left
off working with virtually no down time. With continuous fill you will
NOT have to wait for the boiler to heat back up. How it works: A
continuous fill steamer has two tanks, a boiler
and a refill tank. When you add water you are simply filling the refill
tank. The boiler is trickle fed from the refill tank thus insuring that
the boiler is always kept full and ready for service. When the refill
tank runs low you will hear a loud beeping sound and the unit will stop
steaming until you add water.
TWO TOP PICKS: The
4000-C offers instant hot water mingled with the steam
for a beautiful rinsing affect. The
5000-Ci has an added tank on the back that you can fill with
water for hot water injection OR your favorite detergent. Just add
water or detergent to the rear injection tank. Auto
detailers can use zip wax or a spray and rinse wax. This way you can
clean and wax the car at the same time. The
4000-c is a better dollar value but the
5000-Ci gives you the added power of chemical injection rather then
just hot water injection. Read more on their individual pages. All
prices are listed on the individual product pages. These two units are
our top picks especially if you are considering a mobile car wash & auto
detail system. Note: these are not vacuums. Click an image or link
SINGLE TANK STEAMER:
Heavy Commercial Steam Cleaner) A (ST) single tank technology steamer, such as the
the 4000-S has higher wattage, a larger boiler and hot water injection.
They function very much like you might think. They have a large single
sealed boiler. This technology
is powerful and tends to be extremely dependable as its internal
components are few in number. Its simplicity of design makes it rugged
dependable. The down side to a single tank unit is that when it runs out
of water you will have to release the steam pressure, open the pressure
cap, fill it and wait for it to warm back up. This process will take
about 30 minutes. The
4000-S can run in dry
steam mode about 90 min non-stop steaming. With hot water
injection on this time is greatly reduced. If you plan on doing a dry
car was with only dry steam, this is fine. If you plan on using the hot
water injection be aware, you will run out of water VERY fast. If
you plan on using the hot water injection very often consider the
continuous fill systems like the
All that being said, the
4000-S is a great system
for the mobile detailer. It all depends on what your main use is.
VC 3000 has a much lower
wattage and does not have hot water injection. Though it is a good
detailer tool, the lower wattage and smaller water tank makes it less
suited for full size exterior car washing. See the individual product
pages for more information.
CHEMICAL & HOT WATER INJECTION?:
put hot water injection allows you to inject super heated water into the
steam flow of your steamer with a push of a button. A powerful cleaning
tool. Hot water injection can be clearly be seen demonstrated in the
Video Part 2.
Chemical or Soap injection allows for you to inject hot chemical or soap
into the steam stream at the push of a button.
water injection steamer such as the
VC-4000-S and the
VC-4000-C can NOT inject
soap or chemical, just hot water and dry steam. Do not attempt to put
anything but clean water into this type of steamer.
A Chemical Injection Steamer such as the
VC-5000-Ci or the
Super Vapor 6
commercial steam cleaners work both
hot water mode and chemical injection mode as well as dry steam. You can
add your favorite detergent/soap to a separate injection tank located on
the back of the steamer OR you can simply fill that injection tank with
simple water for hot water rinsing instead of soap. This gives you the
best of both worlds. Naturally, all of our vapor steam cleaners produce
super heated dry vapor steam as well. CHEMICALS: Some good
chemicals: Zipwax wash-n-wax for cars, diluted Dawn liquid dish
detergent for cutting stubborn grease. You can also use simple
green, orange clean products and more. Be sure that none of the products
you use are explosive or flammable.
Commercial Steam Cleaners
Sanitize, kill bed bugs & bacteria?
commercial steam cleaners
are cited as examples of
green cleaning since they do not require the use
of chemical cleaning solutions. They are growing in
popularity because of dry vapor steams ability to
kill germs and
in many cases disinfect
without the use of chemical disinfectants. Commercial steam
cleaners are also effective in
in carpet, bedding,
and upholstery as well as
bed bugs (bedbugs),
bacteria. In 2005, the University of Washington
tested vapor steam cleaners in restrooms and reported
labor savings and hygienic improvements over
previous methods. When used right, commercial steam cleaners
can be a powerful tool in the quest for sanitary, clean
restrooms and kitchens. Commercial steam cleaners are
frequently used in hypoallergenic environments
because they do not require the use of additional cleaning
chemicals, which results in better indoor air quality and
eliminates the need to handle or store cleaning agents.
Steam has been shown effective in combating mold,
bacteria, viruses, and other forms of
biocontamination. The bottom line is
commercial steam cleaners
are very popular and very powerful. If you are a business,
organization or cleaning professional you might want to
consider a dry vapor commercial steam cleaner.
WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A STEAMER?
This is a great question. Most steam cleaner
sales people don't even know the right answer. Often they ramble on
manufacture or even the power consumption of a unit. The truth is
that there are two main things that make a great steamer. First and
most important of all, the size of the boiler. Second, the quality
of the accessories. Home or commercial dry vapor steam cleaners are
virtually useless without the right accessories. The best way for us
to illustrate the importance of the boiler size is this. The more
water in the boiler, the more steam bubbles being created every
second. The more steam being created the better the continuous flow,
and refresh rate of the steam. Even a tiny boiler can be programmed
to yield high pressures (at first burst). Inside virtually every
steamer is a pressure regulator. This controls the maximum steam
pressure, not the continuous flow of steam. The amount of water
boiling determines the steady flow of steam you get. Example, lets
take two steamers. One with a 1 liter of water at
1500 watts. The other with 4 liters of water at the same power. They
are both rated for 65 PSI and they will both give the exact same
burst of 65 PSI when you first pull the trigger. The smaller boiler
steamer will drop in pressure much, much faster then the larger one
and will also run steady at a much lower pressure. The larger 4
liter boiler has more water boiling which means more steam bubbles
being generated every second which means a better, stronger flow of
bottom line is the bigger the boiler, the better the steam flow. A
decent boiler should never be less then 1.5 liters. A good sized
boiler is 2 liters. A truly powerful boiler is 3 liters and a top of
the line boiler size is 4 liters. Of course, all this said the
quality of the unit is also critical. Our line of home and
commercial dry vapor steam cleaners was the FIRST the enter the USA
