Steam Heated High Pressure Washers
Many industrial applications need to be able to utilize the enormous cleaning power of hot pressure cleaning at high pressures. Normally this is accomplished by using a stationary or portable fuel fired hot high-pressure washer, which heats the water by combustion of fuel (gas or oil). However there are situations where the use of a combustion system is not desirable, but boiler steam is readily available. For these situations Spartan Manufacturing Corporation offers a full range of electric motor driven hot high-pressure washers, which utilize plant steam as the energy source.
The steam-heated models utilize a compact shell and tube heat exchanger to heat the water on the inlet side of the high-pressure pump. The water is heated continuously to 175°F as it passes through the steam heat exchanger. Water temperature is controlled by an automatic steam valve on the heat exchanger inlet that responds to a water temperature-sensing element on the heater outlet. Boiler steam up to 125-PSI pressure can be utilized in this system. The steam heater is equipped with a steam trap on the steam discharge side to separate condensate for return to the plant steam system or for direct condensate discharge.
Steam heated models consist of selected standard models of the Bigfoot E series pressure washers that are additionally equipped with special steam heating components. There are seven standard models available ranging from 2000-3000 PSI, and 4-5 GPM. Spartan Manufacturing Corporation Application Engineering Department can quote other sizes and ratings as needed.
New from Spartan Manufacturing Corporation - Bigfoot E-X series of steam heated hot high-pressure washers. Using existing plant steam as the heat source, the Bigfoot E-X units produce 175°F hot high-pressure water at pressures to 3000 PSI and flow rates to 5.0 GPM for heavy-duty industrial cleaning. Features include adjustable temperature control, easy to use trigger gun wand, detergent chemical injection system, triplex plunger pump with high temperature valves and packing, adjustable regulator, automatic motor control and heavy-duty frame.
