Sioux Steam-Flo® - Low Pressure Steam Generator

The Sioux Steam-Flo® Low-Pressure industrial steam generator is a perfect source of low-pressure steam for a variety of commercial and industrial applications. This unit can be used in place of a conventional boiler for low-pressure applications. These industrial steam generators produce 370-3,450 lbs. (168-1,564 kg) per hour of saturated steam in minutes. Sioux has manufactured the Steam-Flo® steam generator since 1939. Thousands of these portable steam generators are in operation worldwide, providing years of trouble-free service.

Dakota II Series - Industrial Steam Cleaning

Industrial steam cleaning is an entirely different process from hot water pressure washing. Water in an industrial steam cleaning machine is heated up to 320°F (160°C) at a low pressure up to 250 PSI (17.24 BAR). The commercial steam cleaning equipment uses steam’s expansion to accelerate water droplets, at the boiling point, to a high velocity out of a specialized steam cleaning nozzle. Unlike a pressure washer nozzle, the steam cleaning nozzle has an expansion zone placed past the pressure orifice, which directs the water vapor energy to a smaller area, instead of dissipating in all directions. The tremendous expansion is directed by the conical steam nozzle, accelerating the water droplets. The expansion nozzle's effect can be compared to that of the choke of a shotgun. Not only does the expansion nozzle direct the steam cleaner's output, but it also serves as a propulsion chamber. The closer the steam cleaner's nozzle is to the surface to be cleaned, the higher the temperature and velocity of the water/steam mixture, and the more rapid the cleaning action. For many cleaning applications, the nozzle should be held close to the soiled surface to achieve the best results.

Optima Steamer - Dry Steam Vapor
  Optima Steamers are offered in both all electric and diesel fired 
  • Are you a mobile car wash operator? Then you probably carry – a pressure washer, a 100-gal water tank, a waste-water tank, wash mats, a water reclamation system, an air compressor, a 2000-watt generator, two dozens of chemical bottles, piles of rags, among a few other items.
  • To use steam will downsize your overhead BIG time. Optima Steamer uses a fraction of water and chemical, generating zero waste-water run-off. This means no need to fill up an oversized water tank every morning, and no prep work to contain water and no clean-up, eliminating the need to carry a heavy reserve water tank and a waste-water tank.
  • The steam of Optima Steamer breaks up most of soil, grease and grime on a car which will reduce the chemical consumption by up to 90%. The gentle pressure of steam works as an air compressor with a natural sanitizer built-in-one, no longer requiring an air compressor.
  • With an Optima Steamer, you no longer need multiple pieces of equipment, chemical bottles and heavy water tanks in limited space of your vehicle.
