Industrial pressure washer: everything you need to know about high pressure pumps

High pressure cleaners are machines with relatively simple operation which, by means of a high pressure water jet, can remove any type of dirt and fouling from all rigid surfaces, internal or external to an environment: for example dust, soil, grease, mold or moss formations due to moisture and so on. They are used on an industrial level for the cleaning of machines, motors and tools, but they are often very useful also in a domestic context, especially for the thorough cleaning of walls, floors and external surfaces of gardens and terraces. To generate a jet of water capable of carrying out

High pressure cleaners are machines with relatively simple operation which, by means of a high pressure water jet , are able to remove any type of dirt and fouling from all rigid surfaces, internal or external to an environment: for example dust, soil, grease, mold or moss formations due to moisture and so on.

They are used on an industrial level for the cleaning of machines, motors and tools, but they are often very useful also in a domestic context , especially for the thorough cleaning of walls, floors and external surfaces of gardens and terraces.

To generate a jet of water capable of washing surfaces and materials, the pressure washer must be equipped with a high pressure pump of adequate power. The high pressure pumps Hawk are piston pumps destined mainly to an industrial use, designed and tested to match specific requirements.

The Hawk brand, present on the market for several decades, guarantees the highest level of quality, and offers resistant and reliable high-pressure pumps that last over time, thus ensuring minimal maintenance.

VOLUMETRIC PRESSURE PUMPS TO MEET EVERY NEED

Hawk designs and manufactures volumetric pressure pumps suitable for use in different contexts. To identify the ideal model, it is advisable to take into account the flow rate, the maximum pressure, the rotation speed and the power of the instrument.

The flow rate of a pump is defined in liters / minute and correlates with the rotation speed, expressed in rpm. The pressure is expressed in bar , and the power absorbed by the appliance in kW .

Hawk produces a range of high pressure pumps of different power and flow rate , which can offer different performances. The standard models are ideal in most situations and can be used simply with water by adding, if necessary, a minimum dose of detergent.

Pumps intended for systems that run for many hours, for example car wash systems, are equipped with long-lasting seals and require limited maintenance to the minimum necessary. For the chemical and food industry, Hawk manufactures pumps with stainless steel head, also suitable in contexts where seawater is used.

The range also includes pumps for applications where higher water temperatures are required and certified models for installation in environments where explosive or dangerous substances are present.

It is very important to always pay the utmost attention not to operate a high pressure pump without opening the water supply valve and to control the temperature : water with a temperature above 65 ° C must be used only with specific models.

INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE OF HIGH PRESSURE PUMPS

The installation of a pump is relatively simple, it is necessary to replace the oil plug and connect the appliance to a water supply or to a water tank. To avoid damaging the internal mechanism, it is recommended to install a filter , which avoids the passage of sand or debris present in the pipes. It is also recommended to install a pressure gauge to always keep the pressure value under control.

Hawk high pressure pumps do not require much maintenance, but it is still very important to carry out correct lubrication , following the instructions provided for each different model. It is also essential to check the parts most subject to wear, especially gaskets and valves, which may need to be replaced periodically, based on the intensity and frequency of use of the system. If the pump remains unused for a certain period, it is recommended to empty it completely.

The main fields of application of a high pressure pump concern the cleaning of urban environments, buildings and industrial plants, the washing of vehicles and agricultural machines, fire – fighting systems and various production sectors.
