Environmental concerns over waste-water and or water chemical mix disposal are becoming more apparent as metal working companies seek efficiency conservation and environmental compliance in their cleaning and preparation processes. These environmental concerns are primarily in the area of effluent disposal.

Pressure washers are used by many facilities for heavy duty cleaning in a wide variety of applications, such as trucks, bulldozers and other heavy-duty equipment. When these behemoths are covered with heavily laden soils the pressure washer has few equals. The high volume of water combined with detergents removes these soils readily. The large volume of water is not a problem because the material being removed from the equipment is not a threat to the environment. Thus both the washing and the rinsing do not present a problem of effluent disposal.
