Screen Washer Description
Screen washers and cleaners are some of the unsung heroes of the oilfield. In fact, they are often overlooked, but they can do a good job of helping keep the oilfield deck, screens, and other equipment in good shape.
Features of screen washers
Today, you’ll find a number of washers available. Many of the washers are mobile. They will have wheels attached to the base, which means you can move them around the oil platform or between platforms and wherever you need them. The mobile washers make it easy to haul around. However, even though they are mobile units, they are still quite powerful. Some will have up to 800 PSI, which can make washing fast and easy.
The features of the screen washers will vary between brands. However, they tend to be very similar from one to the other. Understanding how to use one screen washer typically means you will be able to acclimate to another washer with ease.
If you’re going to be choosing a screen washer or screen cleaner to rent, you need to make sure it has everything you need. Check the features of the machine including the operating controls. Most of the time, they are going to be very simple to operate. However, having a basic understanding of what to expect from the rental or lease before actually getting it is always a good idea.
One of the other things you need to consider when you are choosing screen washers is the length of the pressure hose. In some cases, the pressure hose can be up to 50 feet, which could be useful for large areas. Make sure that the hose is able to reach the areas you need easily. In addition to the length of the pressure hose, consider the PSI of the machine. The greater the PSI the more power it has.
The machines are also available in a variety of sizes, and they naturally have various features because of the different makes and models. It is important to find the machine that has the features best suited for your operation. Because the size can vary, you will want to make sure it will fit the space where you need to use it. You will also want to know how much it weighs and how easy it is to move from one area to the other.
