Downstream injectors for pressure washer trucks are used to add detergents, cleaning solutions, or other chemicals to the water stream, which is necessary for cleaning tasks that require more than just water pressure.
The most widely used method of introducing chemicals into pressure washers is through downstream injector systems. These are preferred because they don’t draw chemical detergents through the high-pressure pump or heating coil in case of hot water pressure washers. Moreover, it helps to prolong the lifespan of the pump and reduce the risk of corrosion.
What is a Remote Downstream Injector Box
There is a remote downstream injector box; they are placed outside the pressure washer’s pump and are connected to the machine with a hose. Additionally, downstream injector systems are relatively affordable, simple to operate, and can extract detergents at a higher dilution rate.
Why do we use Remote Downstream Injector Bypass?
A bypass kit is a device that reroutes the water flow around the downstream injector. By doing so, the user can switch between using pure water or a chemical mixture without having to remove or replace the injector every time.
A remote downstream injector bypass kit for a pressure washer truck is a package that includes the necessary components to install a bypass kit on the pressure washer system mounted on a truck. This kit lets the user switch easily between using water only or a chemical mixture, making it more convenient and efficient to clean different surfaces.
Reasons To Use Remote Downstream Injector System
- Allows for more targeted and efficient use of cleaning solution
- Reduces the likelihood of damage to delicate surfaces by controlling the flow of chemicals
- Increases the lifespan of the pressure washer’s pump and seals by reducing chemical exposure
- Enables the use of stronger, more effective cleaning solutions that might otherwise damage the pressure wash
- Simplifies the cleaning process by eliminating the need for manual mixing or measuring of cleaning chemicals.
Things to Avoid While Using Remote Downstream Injector System
- The use of a high-pressure nozzle can cause the injector to stop working.
- The injector is impacted by gravity, with back pressure increasing as the low-pressure nozzle increases.
- Back pressure can cause the injector to stop drawing chemicals, typically occurring at distances of ten feet and higher.
- Too much pressure hose can create back pressure and reduce the velocity of the fluid, leading to the injector stopping.
- The injector is efficient to work up to about one hundred and fifty feet of pressure hose before stopping to draw the chemical.
Recently, new products have been introduced to the pressure washing market that permits remote chemical application control. While these products are effective, there is a superior and less restrictive method for remotely bypassing the injector during rinsing or surface cleaning with a remote downstream box, which optimizes the potential of your machine.
The product as mentioned earlier keep the chemical injector operational, which curtails full flow even during the rinse phase. On the other hand, bypassing the injector entirely during rinsing or surface cleaning allows for maximum volume flow.
