What customers frequently ask us
“Food grade certification” is often required for specialized equipment that has some sort of substance for human or animal consumption flowing through it.
SuperKlean products are FDA compliant and meet all FDA requirements for washdown and sanitation processes. They are not food grade. Factories don’t require our type of nozzles or other washdown products to be “food grade certified”.
No, our products are not suitable to be used with potable/drinking water. SuperKlean products are intended to be used for washdown only, not drinking nor food preparation.
Please download this Flow Rate and Steam Consumption Calculator to calculate your hot water flow rate and steam consumption.
You can also look at the Temperature Rise vs Flow Rate Output Chart on page 3.
The thread size of our temperature gauge is 1/2″ NPT.
The GVCP-8 and DURA8-7 are both made of molded PTFE.
SuperKlean has been custom-designing internal hose guards for many years, to extend industrial hose life. (See photo and details on page 24 of the catalog.) Many companies realize the most common place where a hose breaks down is internally, near each end of hose. This occurs at the edge of hose barb that sometimes cuts into the inside of hoses that are pliable and softened by the flow of hot water. SuperKlean LifeSpan hose guards add minimal cost to the hose, but can significantly lengthen the life of a hose by protecting this wear point found in hoses.
The hose guards are made of 304 Stainless Steel.
The gasket is: 0.975″ OD x 0.465″ ID x 0.120″ thickness.
Depending on the hose outer diameter size and circumference of the coils, our hose racks can fit up to 100 ft of hose.
The thread size of our hose rack bolts is M12 – 1.75.
The hose rack mounting holes are approximately 0.55″ in diameter.
The recommended maximum pressure is 150 psi and maximum temperature is 200F.
We do not offer a low flow nozzle. However, low flow can be obtained with the use of a Flow Restrictor Adapter on most SuperKlean nozzles.
Our nozzles are for water use only.
The size is 18 x 2, where 18mm is the ID of the ring, and 2mm is the diameter of the rubber.
Yes, our aluminum nozzle has small traces of lead. For lead free nozzles, you can purchase our stainless steel nozzles.
The tip gasket and O-ring on the cartridge are both made of nitrile.
The trigger on the DH150S is slightly harder to squeeze because of its more compact design (a shorter lever) and to ensure the reliability of the automatic shut-off feature of the nozzle. This design also allows single handed operation of the locking mechanism vs some competitors’ nozzles, which may require both hands to lock the nozzle spray pattern.
The D-Wand tip is attached to the connector using a M15 x 1.5 thread. The connector is attached to the barrel by a M12 x 1 thread.
