High-pressure washers – New models lighter, more versatile

Posted in Machinery by gsol on October 17, 2006

High-pressure washersThe latest releases are compact and have more cleaning power, making them suitable for DIY, commercial and industrial use.

The growing popularity of high-pressure washers as a household tool is prompting suppliers in Taiwan and mainland China to develop designs that can be used for light- to heavy-duty applications.

Fitted with powerful pumps and strong engines or motors, the latest units are more compact and can be used for cleaning vehicles, swimming pools, walls, CNC machines and other industrial equipment. They are also suitable for construction and agricultural work.

The suppliers interviewed for this report have developed models with enough power for medium- and heavy-cleaning jobs. Traditionally bulky heavy-duty washers are now offered in lighter weights of 30 to 50kg with operating pressure of 2,900 to 3,600psi or 200 to 248 bar.

Lightweight units 23kg and below, with less than 2,000psi or 138 bar, are also available. The lightest model featured here is an 8kg, 1,014psi or 70 bar washer from a Taiwan maker.

Other trends focus on improving product efficiency, safety and durability through better-quality parts and components.

    Please tell me what your product range is in the small electric power washers: Please give PSI and GPM and over-all size.

    Do these come with slip-fit attachments mounted at the end of the lance:? E.g. Rotary or turbo scrubber nozzle, rotary and fixed brush, wet sand blaster, detergent bottle (s), angled nozzle, hose reels for electric and water, etc, etc.

    We cannot use a gas pressure unit because the use of the washer is in a confined space inside of buildings.

    Price for the various models from 1,000 to 2,000 psi

    Cost per sample unit

    Do you have a wall-mounted version?

    Do you have a wall-mounted version that fits into a metal container? (stainless or white)

    We would need 110 V for USA use
