We Have You Covered: Hydrotek’s Cleaning Solutions for the Agriculture Industry

The agriculture industry is facing many issues in today’s world. Any one of these issues on their own would be difficult, but dealing with new requirements, sick workers, and difficulty finding people to work, it is a hard time to be in this business. However, at Hydro Tek we know there are solutions. Read on to learn about some of the cleaning solutions that could help your company, then contact us at 800-274-9376 or find a dealer near you to get the equipment you need.

Create a Detailed Plan

Before you get started, sit down and make a plan. One of the easiest ways to skip steps or not sanitize something entirely is to simply do tasks in any order and without a thought to the overall goal. Instead, you should be taking the time to create a plan before you even begin.

Make Sure You Have the Right Cleaning Pressure

Every job is unique and you will never use your hot water pressure washer in the exact same way twice. That is why you have to determine the right pressure for each job. The right answer will depend on the surface you are cleaning and what you are cleaning from it. The goal is to use enough pressure to get the job done but without putting the surface in danger of damage.

Find the Perfect Cleaning Temperature

Just as you need the right cleaning pressure, you need the right temperature too. The hotter the water gets, the more germs it is able to kill. For example, if you use water that is between 185 – 212F it can kill most bacteria colonies, but if you want to kill them entirely you will have to get up to 311F. You do not always need to kill every bacteria colony but you can see from this example that the hotter the water is, the more likely it is to be safe from bacteria.

Use the Right Detergent

You are not likely to use an all-purpose detergent when you have such a specific goal. Instead, use a detergent that is right for the job it is doing. Make sure you know what the local and statewide regulations are on what ingredients you can use. Once you have the right detergent you need, use it to soak the surface so that it can kill any layers of dirt or waste that take longer to break down.

Once it has soaked in, use hot water to rinse off the surface. Then apply your disinfectant, which you should choose based on again on the specific job you are doing, the rules in your area, and the type of bacteria you are worried about.

If you need help finding the right equipment for all your agriculture cleaning solutions, we invite you to contact Hydro Tek at 800-274-9376 to get started.

    Simply by heating up the water, a hot water pressure washer delivers dramatically improved cleaning power compared to a cold water machine. Hot water pressure washers are especially useful for cleaning sticky, greasy, or oily surfaces, because they will loosen the dirt much faster without the large amounts of soap, detergent, or other cleaning chemicals that must be used with a cold water system.

Quality & Innovation Since 1985

Hydro Tek

From simple beginnings in 1985, Hydro Tek has grown to become the most trusted name in the pressure washer manufacturing industry.

How did we do it? By continually focusing on quality and reliability as the key to customer satisfaction, and by incorporating the latest technologies into our design and manufacturing processes.

By 1991, we were using computer-aided drafting systems to refine our product designs and improve efficiency. In 1997, we brought the power of computers to the shop floor by incorporating laser-cutting and other CNC manufacturing machinery, and in 2001 we began focusing on improving efficiency through the latest manufacturing techniques. The end result has been superior products delivered at a superior value to our customers. Through the next decade, we look forward to fulfilling our vision of making our products the "obvious choice" for all your industrial and commercial cleaning needs.
