Kärcher HDS-E 8/16-4 M high pressure cleaner is extra hot10th of December 2012
The Kärcher HDS-E 8/16-4 M electrically heated high pressure cleaner is designed for closed areas that need to be cleaned with a hot water unit that does not emit exhaust gases. The company says the new boiler insulation makes it energy efficient, and it has a high operating temperature of 80°C in continuous operation.
Insulation made from expanded polypropylene has reduced heat emission by the electric boiler. On standby this leads to energy savings of more than 40 per cent.
The most powerful of the three models available delivers its maximum temperature of 85°C in eight minutes of boiler operation. And by using the Servo control on the spray gun to adjust water flow, the operator can maintain a constant 80°C even in extended operation.
The eco!efficiency mode is available for light to medium soiling - setting the operating temperature at a permanent 60°C guarantees the best ratio between cleaning performance and energy consumption says Kärcher. Detergents can be added in precise doses via two tanks.
