Medium pressure cleaning systems

  • Joe Harrington


For the purposes of this book, medium pressure cleaning systems are those operating between 50 and 250 bar. In Chapter 2. the basic theory of high pressure cleaning was defined as the use of hydrodynamic power, in the form of kinetic energy, to remove difficult surface deposits. There are many cleaning applications however, that can be carried out successfully using medium pressures, the advantages being, lower capital costs, reduced safety hazards and greater flexibility. Medium pressure systems differ from high pressure cleaning in that they can combine impact cleaning with chemical solutions together with hot or cold water within the limits specified in this chapter.
