Pressure Washers, Inline and Axial Pumps

by Fawn

Pressure washers are used for cleaning, stripping paint, and removing rust. They are also used for industrial purposes such as cleaning machinery, equipment, and vehicles.

An inline pressure washer is a small unit that is connected to a garden hose or water supply. It uses a motor to pump water through a narrow nozzle at high pressures. This machine is installed perpendicular to the surface it is cleaning.

An axial pressure washer is a larger unit with an engine. It has a large diameter nozzle that delivers high-pressure water from the center of the machine, allowing it to cover large areas quickly without moving parts or hoses. This type has its pump located at one end and the nozzle at the other. An example of this machine is the Grandfall Pump available at Giraffe tools and collections.

The axial pressure washer also has a lower profile and can be used for tighter spaces. It also has fewer moving parts, which makes it more reliable than an inline pressure washer.

What are the Benefits of Buying an Axial Pump as Compared to an Inline Pump?

There are many benefits of buying an axial pump as compared to an inline pump. They include the following:

  • More efficient operation due to less friction.
  • Ability to use smaller pumps for the same flow rate.
  • Can be used in any orientation.
  • Can be used with valves and other accessories.
  • Ideal for large projects
  • Higher noise levels than inline pressure washers

They both clean the same surfaces but have different features and benefits.

Inline Pressure Washers:

  • Ideal for small projects
  • Low noise levels
  • Easy to transport
  • It can be hooked up with a garden hose or water supply

The axial pumps are the best type of pumps in terms of energy efficiency and performance. They are also more durable than inline pumps.

There are different types of pumps that you can buy, depending on your needs. For example, you can buy a high-pressure (HP) or low-pressure (LP) pump. HP pumps are used for high-pressure applications while LP pumps are used for low-pressure applications like irrigation systems and fountains.

Best Features of Buying an Axial Pump for your Home Use

An axial pump is a type of positive displacement pump that uses an impeller to produce high-volume flow in one direction. This is achieved by spinning the impeller at high speed, which causes the liquid to flow through the narrow gap between the impeller blades and the stationary walls of the housing.

The best features of buying an axial pump for your home use are as follows:

  • They are inexpensive when compared to other types of pumps, such as submersible pumps.
  • They can be used for both indoor and outdoor purposes.
  • They are not affected by the amount of water or air they move, which makes them better suited for systems where the volume changes often.

Axial pumps are the most commonly used type of pump in homes. They are also the best choice for a home because they are very easy to use and maintain.

The most important features of an axial pump include high volume output, low noise level, and long service life.

Some of the features that you should consider when buying an axial pump for your home include:

  • High volume motor with a large displacement
  • Check to see if the pump is UL approved
  • Check to see if it is EPA approved
