Sioux SafeSteam™- Use your existing steam lines

If your plant is plumbed with 80-150 PSI (5.5 - 10.34 BAR) steam lines, here’s an innovative way to use that steam for cleaning purposes. We’ve developed a steam cleaner that has many benefits over conventional steam cleaSioux SafeSteamners because it taps into your existing steam lines; so it doesn’t need its own burner.

SafeSteam Means No Fire, No Vents, No Stacks And A Safer Work Environment
The Walter’s SafeSteam Cleaner transforms your plant steam (which by itself is too dry to be effective for steam cleaning) by scientifically blending proper amounts of water. It uses a specially designed electric pump, industrial cleaning agents and our proprietary SteamGun™ gun to generate a readily available source of steam for your cleaning and sterilization applications. Since no burner is required, you avoid messy and dangerous fuels. There is no exhaust to worry about, so you can use it indoors without special venting.

SafeSteam Saves You Money And Time
SafeSteam is always instantly ready. Operators just pick up the gun and go to work. SafeSteam is easy for your internal maintenance team to maintain. No dealer or costly service contracts are required. Not only is it cheap to hook up and operate, it’s cheap to buy. Because of its simple, streamlined design, it’s at least $1,000 less expensive than conventional steam cleaners.

SafeSteam Can Be Used For:
  • Paint preparation
  • Sterilizing
  • Cleaning of delicate equipment and sensitive parts
  • Cutting through heavy grease
  • …in fact, just about anywhere inside or outside your facility where you need the power of steam to handle tough cleaning jobs and want to avoid pressure washer mess and splash-back.
