Water Savings: High-Pressure vs Low-Pressure in Washdown

High-Pressure to Low-Pressure Washdown Cleaning System Comparison

(900-1100 psi vs. low pressure 250 psi)

The basic reason for using a high-pressure cleaning system is to create an effective impact while minimizing water usage. Rather than a low-pressure high volume system that requires twice the water to generate an effective impact.

Pressure is only one of three variables that you can manipulate to vary impact.

Impact is a relationship of three factors:

  • Volume
  • Spray angle
  • Pressure

This is a very critical point to remember because of the widespread misconception that high pressure will hurt people or damage equipment.

What is NPSH (Net Positive Suction Head) and Why Does it Matter?

NPSH or Net Positive Suction Head is a very important part of a pumping system. The systems NPSHA must be higher than the pump's NPSHR in order for proper pump performance and to eliminate the risk of cavitation, which can damage a pump in short order and shut down operations that depend on that pump.
