What exactly is low pressure?

Aside from the fact that low-pressure solutions are guaranteed to deliver better results, reduce cleaning costs and reduce cleaning time in production, what exactly is low pressure?

In essence, low-pressure simply means that there is less pressure on the device than high-pressure solutions. This means that instead of using 60+ bar, low pressure solutions use between 5 and 40 bar.
Using 5-40 bar means that the water droplets in the system become larger, which can be beneficial as larger droplets allow you to maintain the water temperature. On the other hand, if you use 60+ bar, the droplets become smaller, making it harder to maintain the water temperature.

Why does this matter?

The general idea in food and beverage production facilities is that high pressure has the power to remove food residues and dirt in general. Our technology in low pressure solutions makes it possible to still remove all types of contamination while having a greater reach. This is possible because, as mentioned earlier, you can maintain the temperature and pressure of the water even if the operator steps back. When using high pressure solutions you must operate very closely (at a distance of 30 cm) to hit your target and achieve a very high impact; with low pressure technology it is possible to step back (at a distance of 180 cm) and maintain a high impact over the entire area.

Why is it more effective?


Low-pressure cleaning is often more effective than high-pressure cleaning systems for several reasons:

    1. Reduced risk of damage: Low-pressure cleaning systems use a gentler approach to cleaning, which reduces the risk of damage to the surfaces being cleaned. High-pressure systems can sometimes damage delicate surfaces, or force water and debris into unwanted areas.

    2. Better coverage: Low-pressure cleaning systems typically use a wider spray pattern that covers more surface area than high-pressure systems. This wider coverage can help reduce the cleaning time and ensure a more thorough cleaning.

    3. Improved safety: Low-pressure cleaning systems are generally safer to use than high-pressure systems. The reduced risk of damage and wider spray pattern means that operators can work more safely and with less risk of injury or property damage.

    4. More efficient use of water: Low-pressure systems use less water than high-pressure systems. This can be important in areas where water conservation is a concern, and it can also help reduce the amount of water runoff generated during the cleaning process.



In the food and beverage industry, low-pressure cleaning is often used to clean processing equipment, floors, walls, and other surfaces that come into contact with food or beverage products. This cleaning method is particularly useful in food and beverage processing facilities, where hygiene and sanitation are critical for ensuring product safety and quality.


Low-pressure cleaning is often preferred in the food and beverage industry because it can effectively clean large areas quickly, and it can help reduce the risk of cross-contamination between different products or batches. Additionally, the low-pressure water flow helps to prevent damage to equipment and surfaces, which can help extend their lifespan and reduce maintenance costs.

Overall, low-pressure high-volume cleaning is an important tool in maintaining the hygiene and safety of food and beverage products, and it is a critical component of many cleaning and sanitation programs in the industry.
