What is an industrial steam cleaner?
The industrial steam cleaner is the ideal equipment for cleaning industrial plants or your machines. A professional steam cleanereven those made by IBL Specifik may not be powerful enough.
An industrial cleaning generator can generate dry steam under 12 bar and high temperature (185°C), thus allowing to clean and disinfect all industrial surfaces and installations. An Industrial Steam Cleaner like the STEAMBIO 30000 is a powerful steam cleaning machine (30kW).
Why use industrial steam cleaner?
A high pressure cleaner is used to degrease, de-oil, decontaminate and clean machines and tools. It is a machine designed for cleaning and sanitizing surfaces, equipment and premises in an industrial manner.
Does the steam disinfect?
For the steam to be able to disinfect it requires water heated to more than 120°, high pressure and regular cleaning. IBL Specifik designs and markets high-performance steam cleaning equipment and we explain here why steam cleaning is ideal in many industries.
Above its boiling temperature, water turns into steam causing the breakage of the physico-chemical bonds that hold the dirt and grease stuck to the surfaces to be cleaned. Above 120°C, combining pressure with steam will create a disinfectant effect.
So yes, thanks to a high-pressure cleaner, steam acts as a disinfectant, by a high temperature (up to 180°C) and a high pressure (8 bars), kills harmful micro-organisms.
