3 phase machines allow far greater power to be used. This allows greater steam volumes, temperatures and pressures to be achieved, naturally mainly, if not entirely applicable to Industrial applications. In these cases Duplex offers both portable and fixed units with the options of direct water supply. Duplex Steambrush Conveyor…
In many applications steam alone is quite sufficient, giving chemical-free cleaning. However in some cases the use of a specialist chemical, such as a degreaser make the cleaning process faster. Additionally some specialist systems, such as Chewing Gum removal are designed to use steam and chemical in order to efficiently…
In many applications using a steam cleaner, once the steam has released the dirt there is still a need to remove the debris. With the integral vacuum the dirt can be collected simultaneously, saving significant time and effort.
This also leaves surfaces dry, so minimising disruption. Having a vacuum on a machine means that spillages can also be quickly vacuumed up.
No. Generally speaking there are two methods used. Some Manufacturers use probes inside the boiler which send a signal to the water pump when the level in the boiler falls below a certain level. The other system is a mechanical float inside the boiler.
‘Out of the Box’ both systems achieve the same thing but over time the buildup of scale, from the salts in the water, can have an adverse effect on the probes whereas the mechanical system has the benefit of removing scale as it moves in the water. For this reason all Duplex machines use the mechanical float system for automatic refilling as standard on all models.
Firstly downtime is reduced to a minimum. Instead of refilling and starting from cold all that is needed is to refill the water reserve tank. The boiler does not need to be de-pressurised and steam is produced almost immediately, meaning downtime is merely a few seconds instead of a few minutes.
Another advantage of continuous flow machines is that the boiler itself can be a smaller volume, so giving even faster heating times, and longer running times can be achieved by increasing the size of the water reserve tank.
Machines have automatic refilling systems. These have a separate water tank in addition to the boiler. There is no direct access to the boiler and water is injected from the water tank.
This means that no pressure cap is required. All Duplex machines (with the exception of some 110v models) use the Continuous Flow principle.
