High-end, large industrial steam cleaners are designed to produce dry steam at high pressures. They operate on a continual basis, without having to turn the machine off and wait for a cooling down period to refill water. Typically industrial steam cleaners are used for specific commercial applications such as restaurant kitchens or auto mechanic’s shops, etc..
When designing the MR-100, Vapamore researched commercial grade systems and assessed features and specifications that should be focused on, in order to produce the highest quality residential grade vapor steam cleaner available.
Research concluded that an operation time of 50 +- 10 minutes (depending on the adjustable steam flow rate setting), is ample time for most cleaning tasks. A stainless steal boiler is implemented into the design for durability and corrosion resistance. The MR-100 produces a dry steam and pressure like that of commercial the grade models.
Lower-end models typically produce wet steam and lower pressure and a limited operation time. A good residential, or entry commercial steam cleaning system should produce dry steam and allow for adjusting output pressure and a longer operation time between filling.
The last, but certainly not the least consideration is safety. Most of the lower-end models have no safety shut off mechanism, and are not ETL or UL approved. This is definitely something to look for. Vapor steam cleaners operate and depend on steam pressure.
