The ThermaTech system enables us to clean delicate surfaces using high temperature, but low pressure.
By heating the water to around 150ºC, but maintaining a liquid spray we can clean stonework, render, woodwork and other soft surfaces thoroughly at only 50 bar. The ThermaTech cleaning system allows a low pressure spray of water at 150ºC. Other steam cleaners allow the water to turn to dry steam at this temperature which is not suitable for cleaning. This is where the ThermaTech sets itself apart from hot pressure washers.
Although we have the use of other pressure washers available for cleaning some surfaces, we use the ThermaTech cleaning system for fragile surface types. The benefits of using super-heated water are that the water volume and pressure is low enough to clean the most fragile hard surfaces without damaging the surface we are cleaning.
The ThermaTech is excellent at cleaning bathstone (limestone, bath stone), brickwork(masonry), rendered walls (K Rend, Monocouche, Weber, Pirex, Sto) and cladding. It has been used on many heritage sites due to its low pressure, as it does not damage the cleaned surface.
WHAT DOES IT REMOVE?
ALGAE, LICHEN and MOSS
The super heated water takes algae, moss and lichen off the surface with ease.
PAINT and COATINGS
At 150ºC paint will melt away from the surface. The ThermaTech achieved far superior results over cold pressure washing and paint stripper. For some paint types a paint softener is needed.
OIL and FUEL SPILLS
Using ThermaTech’s super heated water cleaning system we are able to remove oily spills from car parks, driveways and roadways effectively.
