IS IT BETTER TO USE AN ELECTRIC OR DIESEL PRESSURE WASHER?
ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF HAVING AN ELECTRIC AND DIESEL PRESSURE WASHER
WHAT IS A PRESSURE WASHER?
In the general cleaning for all sectors, internal and external, you need a machine that allows you to clean quickly and effectively.
A useful machine is certainly the pressure washer.
Cause of its versatility, it is able to simplify cleaning jobs that would be very long and complex.
The pressure washer uses the power of the high-pressure water jet to remove dirt on surfaces.
Furthermore, depending on the job that you want to achieve, the water supplied can be hot or cold.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOT AND COLD WATER PRESSURE CLEANER?
HOT WATER PRESSURE CLEANER
The use of hot water is recommended to remove the most stubborn dirt and when a sanitizing action is also required. In fact, it has been established that hot water easily dissolves residues, encrustations, fats and oils, ensuring a greater sanitizing action.
Hot water is also used to facilitate and make the combined action of pressure and flow rate more effective, especially in the professional sector.
For this reason, high-pressure washers with boilers, which release hot water, are defined as professional, since their efficiency allows them to be used in various sectors of activity.
COLD WATER PRESSURE CLEANER
A pressure washer with cold water, therefore without boilers, is more used for domestic use, or where cleaning is not so stubborn.
Furthermore, it has lower costs since, as it does not have boilers, electricity or diesel consumption is reduced.
These models are ideal for cleaning surface dirt, such as terraces, garden furniture, cars and bicycles.
IS IT BETTER AN ELECTRIC OR A DIESEL PRESSURE WASHER?
When choosing a pressure washer, one of the first features to evaluate is the engine.
In fact, there are pressure washers with petrol engines and electric pressure washers.
The difference is found in the driving force and its power supply.
The internal combustion engine is powered by petrol or diesel, while the electric motor needs a current source, with power cables, such as a classic 220 Volt plug, or 380 Volt in the case of industrial systems.
Electric vs endothermic: ADVANTAGES AND DISVANTAGES
- Less engine noise
- Absence of exhaust gases
- Requires connection to an external electrical source
- Potentially less verifiable power costs
- Greater mobility as it does not require a power outlet
- Easier to control power costs
- High engine noise
- Not for use in closed environments
IS IT BETTER A PRESSURE WASHER WITH ENDOTHERMIC OR ELECTRIC HEATING?
In addition to the engine, another essential factor to consider is how the water is heated.
This concept only applies to hot water pressure washers, which, as we have mentioned, are only the best means for cleaning the most stubborn dirt.
The water heating can be diesel or electric.
With diesel heating the pressure washer will reach its maximum temperature in a short time but will produce exhaust gases, just like a car does. For this reason it cannot be used in a closed place.
However, it can be used without any movement restrictions as, as it does not require a cable, it can be transported and used anywhere.
Being independent of cables, these machines generally have much higher flow rates and pressures than electric ones and are even capable of sucking water from streams and cisterns.
However, having a petrol system, the price of this pressure washer is certainly higher than an electrically heated pressure washer.
As far as an electrically heated pressure washer is concerned, one of its advantages is certainly its practicality. Since there is no need for a combustion chamber, petrol tank and exhaust channels, the dimensions will certainly be smaller.
Having electrically heated water under pressure, this machine reduces water waste and is also suitable for work indoors, given the zero CO2 emissions.
For this reason, Idroeletrika machines are all high-pressure washers with electric water heating, so as not to release harmful fumes and respect the environment as much as possible.
Furthermore, the patented technology, Idroeletric system, allows continuous heating of the water, guaranteeing the pressure washer to deliver water at a constant high temperature.
In this way it allows a limited saving of time and costs.
