AST® is designed to shut off the pump and motor when the machine is idle
Woburn, MA (PRWEB) August 03, 2009
Daimer Industries, Inc.®, a major supplier and worldwide exporter of commercial cleaning products and green chemicals, introduced two commercial pressure washers with its Automatic Shut-Off Technology™ (AST®), which switches off key components in electric powered machines after 30 seconds of inactivity.
"AST® is designed to shut off the pump and motor when the machine is idle," according to Matthew Baratta, Daimer.com spokesman. "This is a real time-saver for water pressure washer operators who are working a ways from the machine. Automatic-shutoff also helps to increase the lifespan of these two critical power washer components."
AST® is a proprietary design that works as follows: When engaged, the technology shuts off the pump and motor after 30 seconds if the gun is not in use and water is not flowing through the machine. When the pressure washer operator pulls the trigger, the motor and pump go on.
This feature is particularly useful for situations in which the pressure washer worker is using a long hose, say, more than 25 feet, and it is not practical for them to go back and forth to the machine to turn it off during each break. The pumps and motors in standard electric pressure washers stay active whether or not water is flowing through the system, which can shorten the life-span of these components.
The Pressure Washers
The new Super Max™ electric-powered high pressure washers feature tri-mode technology that allows the machines to clean using cold water, hot water with temperatures of 180ºF to 210ºF, or steam temperatures as high as 330ºF. As a result, the machines can operate as steam power washers, capable of dissolving residues while cleaning. The units can convert cold water to hot water or steam in about 30 seconds.
For heating water, the equipment uses no. 1 or no. 2 heating oil, diesel or kerosene. Both machines include a 9-gallon heating-fuel capacity and a heavy-duty schedule 80 heating coil for extended reliability. The power washers offer chemical infusion via high-pressure injection. Multi gun operation is available as an option at additional cost. Wet sandblasting systems are also available as an option.
Super Max™ 12840 AST® offer flow rates of up to 4 GPM and pressure levels of up to 2000 psi. The Super Max™ 12860 AST® produces pressure levels of up to 3000 psi, flow rates of up to 5 GPM. This machine also offers dual or multi-pressure selection as an option at additional cost.
These mobile pressure washers are on wheels and include: a 50-foot, high-pressure steam hose; a three-foot trigger wand; assorted nozzles; and a powder-coated steel, high gloss, chip/chemical resistant case.
The Super Max™ 12000 line of AST® machines includes six models with water flows ranging from 2 GPM to 5 GPM and pressure levels ranging from 1000 psi to 3000 psi.
Daimer offers more than 400 different models of power washers for customers in industries such as: car detailing, food manufacturing, food service, automotive, hospitality, industrial manufacturing, metal fabrication, machine shops, and more. The machines come in a variety of configurations offering cold water, hot water, and steam up to 330°F and pressure levels up to 8000 psi. In addition to electric powered machines like the AST® line, the Super Max™ line includes gas pressure washers powered by propane or gasoline.
For customers seeking low-flow equipment for delicate applications like auto detailing, Daimer® offers mobile car wash systems, such as the .5 GPM Super Max™ 6230SCW and 6120SCW machines. The dedicated steam machines are heated with propane and powered by electricity.
The company also offers tri-mode pressure washers with phosphatizing systems, which can be used to pretreat metal surfaces prior to painting or coating. Daimer®'s Super Max™ AF machines use a downstream injection system that applies cleaning chemicals at low pressure and then rinses with water at a higher pressure. With downstream injection the chemicals contact only the injector, high-pressure hose, trigger gun, wand and nozzle -- all components that are easy to protect against corrosion.
These phosphatizing systems include: a stainless-steel downstream injector with chemical proportioning adjustment, stainless steel fittings and parts from the injector to the nozzles, a stainless-steel dual-lance wand with crossover valve, a clear plastic siphon pickup tube with a foot screen exiting the front of the machine to draw chemicals directly from a bucket or drum and an on/off panel valve for chemical pickup.
