Cleaning your automobile with soapy water is a thing of the past. Today, is the age of High Pressure Car Washer! This machine works wonderfully on, lawn furniture, patio, grills and driveways. So, let us take a closer look at how it works.
Why Use Pressure Jets?
Water easily gets things cleaned because the water molecules have a slight electrical polarity, so the molecules tend to stick to things all by themselves. When soap is added to the water, it helps to break down the grime and dirt, which easily sticks to the polarized water molecules. However, some grunge is hard to remove no matter how hard you scrub or how concentrated the soapy solution you use. In such a case, using Pressure Washer jet seems convenient, as water gushes out with a force through a narrow hose nozzle, knocking dirt and dust away just like a heavy rainfall does.
How a Pressure Washer Works?
Step#1: The detergent flows in from a container through one hose.
Step#2: Cold water flows in from another hose attached to a tap and is filtered on the way in.
Step#3: An electric motor or a diesel engine powers up the washer and the process.
Step#4: The heavy duty motor draws and mixes the detergent and water to a temperature of 50–70°C.
Step#5: The pump squirts out the hot, soapy water through the high-pressure exit hose attached to the narrow nozzle to clean the automobile, efficiently.
The high-pressure of the car washer jet cleans more effectively, while minimizing water wastage. With this machine you save 80% water than an ordinary hosepipe. And, if you have metered water, lesser wastage would result in lower Energy bills.
Parts of Car Washing Machine
Water Inlet: A hose that connects the Car Pressure Washer to the main water supply. Usually, a filter is attached at the head of the inlet to prevent dirt and debris entering the washer and clogging the system. You cannot take a chance with the tiny bits of debris that blast out of the hose at high speed.
Electric Motor or Diesel Engine: Most smaller High Pressure Car Washer runs on electricity, but some bigger models have a diesel engine; especially where the supply of electricity is hard to get. The motor of this car wash equipment is designed to power the water pump.
Water Pump: The electric motor runs the heart of a car washer. When the engine starts, it sucks water from the faucet into the hosepipe and pushes the water in the opposite direction. The water then squirts out in a high-pressure jet stream. A water pump is designed to handle 4–8 litres of water flow, per minute.
This hose connects the washer to the cleaning attachment. A wire mesh combined with two or more layers of high-density plastic is used in the high-pressure hose to withstand the pressure of the water. The safety margin on the pressure-washer hose is 300%, so if your car washer is rated 2000 psi; it can endure a pressure of 6000 psi.
Cleaning Attachment: Depending on your cleaning requirements, you can use a a simple trigger gun, a rotating brush to scrub, or a spinning wand spray to clean your automobile. The attachments are powered by the pressure of the water flowing through them.
