Benefits of Hot & Cold Pressure Washers

Benefits of Hot & Cold Pressure Washers

May 19, 2022

Pressure washers operate using a gas or electric motor that powers a pump to eject high-pressured water. Pressure washers can be used for a wide range of applications and are available in either hot or cold water varieties. Both types of pressure washers are equipped with a high-pressure plunger pump for water delivery, an unloader valve that can regulate the pressure, an attached power source, and water piping valves. The key difference between a hot and cold water pressure washer is that hot water pressure washers include a water heater and controls to control the temperature. While they function similarly, the heat difference between the two types of pressure washers makes each one better suited for different applications.

Cold Water Pressure Washer Benefits

Cold pressure washers can clear away deposits of dirt, scale, and mud, while heated units can also remove oil-based surface contaminants. If you are dealing with dirt, mud, and scale buildup on surfaces, cold water units are a cost-effective, lighter, and simpler solution. Cold water is also gentler on surfaces such as wood decks, plastic siding, and vehicle surfaces that can become distorted when exposed to heated water. For a more powerful clean, adding a detergent solution through a chemical injector system can boost your pressure washer’s capabilities without the complications of hot water. 

Spartan Manufacturing’s cold water pressure washers are all equipped with chemical injector systems and include the Aggressor series and Bigfoot series for commercial or industrial applications.

Hot Water Pressure Washer Benefits

Tempest Line

Hot water pressure washers can clear away grease, oils, and grime, giving heated pressure washers more capabilities than a simple cold water unit. Along with clearing away visible muck, dirt, and grime, hot water pressure washers can sanitize surfaces and reliably kill both viruses and bacteria, making these units an excellent choice for commercial and industrial food preparation facilities that want to ensure sanitary conditions.

Hot water pressure washers from Spartan Manufacturing have the added capability of doubling as a steam cleaner. Our dual-capability units have a high-temperature setting that heats water to the point of vaporization, creating steam for sanitizing surfaces. With high-powered hot water units, you can quickly clean surfaces, equipment, and food preparation spaces with the additional deep cleaning power provided by hot water and steam. We offer units rated for performance in food-grade steam cleaning and sanitation.

Along with these key benefits, hot water pressure washers are preferable in low-temperature environments that are susceptible to freezing water lines.

Our hot water pressure washers include the Tempest series, Big Blast series, Fury series, and Super Fury series.
