Edge set to unveil "the first truly portable industrial steam cleaner"
UK cleaning equipment distributor Edge is set unveil three groundbreaking new products at a special event later this month.
The UK-wide company will be introducing three new models to its Steam Tec range, including what the company says is the first industrial steam cleaner to be truly portable.
The new battery model, which comes in 12v or 24v versions, gives working times of 1.5 hours with the 12v version and four hours with the 24v option. It can also be plugged into a normal electricity supply.
It combines the productivity of two other new models, which Edge will be showing off at a 'Steam Day' in Uttoxeter Racecourse on 26th October.
The second new model is Graffiti, which uses a combination of steam/sand and steam/detergent to make short work of cleaning walls, pavements and other hard surfaces. While designed to be tough on graffiti, this model is also excellent at sanitation tasks.
Combining the key features of both the Battery and Graffiti models, Edge's Dual steam cleaner is designed for high performance and comes with two standard 6m hoses, gun and lance assembly.
Features include low energy requirements, high temperatures of up to 180°C, minimal water usage and a chemical injection facility. This unit also boasts 10 bar of steam pressure and a pre-heating time of just two minutes, producing steam at 37.5kg/h.
The Dual model gives the option of multiple operators, with corrosion proof casting and a battery option to allow users to work anywhere.
Alwyn Williams, chairman of Edge, says: "We're extremely proud of our latest Steam Tec models. All three have the build quality and performance that our customers have come to expect from the Steam Tec, with the addition of some very exciting innovations.
"The Battery and Dual models are the first truly portable steam cleaners, making outdoor work or work in large industrial units where conventional power outlets aren't readily available so much more straightforward.
"We're looking forward to showing our distributors and prospective clients just how good they are."
Edge will be launching these new products at its 'Steam Day', a one-day seminar in the Premier Suite at Uttoxeter Racecourse on 26th October. The event will include a product introduction, discussion of market opportunities, demonstrations and technical workshops.
