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.

If you doubt … Read the rest
