Does the steam ruin the surfaces?

The steam doesn’t ruin the surfaces if it is used with the right technique and caution. It should be said that there is no car wash system that guarantees ‘no scratches’, the steam cleaning done with the correct technique and with specific products DA is the less invasive.

Is the electrical power generator required?

It is not necessary, but we suggest to evaluate its purchase in a second stage.

Who does mobile services to companies or privates can easily find an single phase electric outlets to connect. In the case you can establish an agreement with a customer that can give a constant number of cars to service in a shop with electric outlet facility there is no need to buy a power generator.

On the contrary, if you know since the beginning that you have to work in a place without any electric outlets facility, then the purchase of an electrical power generator is a must.

The recommended power generator should be the one with a capacity of 5 Kw.

do you need some products to use with the steam?

Yes! On this purpose we have realized a specific line of rapidly biodegradable and non-allergenic products.

We use 2 products that must be diluted and sprayed with steam:

-SWS-LVC to wash the car exteriors.

-ecological cleaner for the car interiors, to wash and sanitize with steam and vacuum.

There are also other specific products to spray with your hands as pre-wash.

The steam temperature

The steam temperature follows some simple rules in our steam equipment. Actually we all know, since our childhood, that water boils at 100°C, on the sea level. When we talk about higher temperature (over 100°C) it means that we are talking about temperatures inside of closed containers, like boilers.

The steam inside of a closed container (boiler) follows some physics basic rules showed in a simple wikipedia’s chart:

Pressure (bar)



















Temperature (°C)



















Here the specific page:

Thanks to this chart we notice a relation between pressure and temperature. For this reason a 6 bar machine like our 09 EVO Junior, will have a boiler temperature of 159°C.

A machine like our 09EVO has a 8 bar pressure and a boiler temperature of 171°C.

Our 09EVO Senior has a 10 bar pressure and a boiler temperature of 180°C.

With some machines we decided to round off the temperature and specify on the display:180°C, just to let the user know that the machine is ready to be used.
