Nuclear Power Plant.jpgAll-Electric Washers for Nuclear Power Plants

For over 25 years, Sioux Corporation has been the industry leader in manufacturing heavy-duty, extremely dependable all-electric hot water pressure washers and steam cleaners. Rather than using a conventional oil or gas fired burner, these machines heat water using electricity. These units have fewer moving parts and contain a conservatively designed heating element, providing the highest reliability and trouble-free operation of any design.
