Dry steam reaches temperatures well above 212°F, water’s boiling point and what makes it a gas. Hot water from your pressure washer or plant steam from your in house boiler only creates diffused water particles or mist (wet steam), and the output is typically below 180°F.
Steam temperature can be modified at the cleaning point by adjusting the nozzle distance to avoid compromising the belt material.
Waste Water / Run-Off
Dry steam is a gas and has far fewer water molecules, producing little to NO wastewater. Hot water and in-house boiler steam leads to runoff and requires drainage which is bad for cleaning and sanitation. Steam is ideal for dry facilities, plants without drains and facilities that are looking to evolve their sanitation methods to CIP and SIP.
Dry steam, being gas, can penetrate surfaces quicker and further — delivering sanitizing temperatures hard-to-reach harborage sites faster. Hot water and wet steam take time to penetrate into surfaces and cannot transfer heat to surfaces unless in direct contact. 3rd party pathogen lab testing results available for validation purposes.

The Pneumatic Conveyor Belt Cleaning Tool is recommended for open belt types (wired, modular/interlinked) and is best used with 10m Power hose part number 70039. For closed flat belts, we recommend Conveyor Belt Cleaning Nozzle with Suction.
* (In addition to a dry steam generator that can produce consistent steam pressure specified above) in order to use this conveyor tool, compressed air from separate source is required. See above for the air specs.
