15 Hotsy Features that Save Money, Increase Durability, Improve Worker Safety and Protect the Environment

Hotsy has been engineering and innovating hot water pressure washers since 1970 and has pioneered many industry advances over the years.
Here are 15 of the best innovations:
①  CERTIFIED TOUGH, SAFE OPERATION

Hotsy high pressure cleaning equipment is engineered to the highest level of safety and quality.

Hotsy is ETL/ETLC certified to UL 1776 and CSA B140.11 industry safety standards and meets or exceeds OSHA safety Regulations 1910.399-1910.303a.

②  WELDED FRAMES

Hotsy frames are welded. Welded frames hold up to vibration and are stronger than frames held together with nuts and bolts. Built using ISO 9001 standards.

Hotsy-Advantage③  HIGH PRESSURE PUMP

Hotsy manufactures its own pumps with a 7-year, non-prorated warranty on the oil end and manifold of the Hotsy pump.

④  VIBRATION DAMPENING

Mounting plates reduce engine vibration and thus extend the life of the unit.

⑤  ENGINES & MOTORS

Hotsy uses engines that are both EPA and CEPA compliant.

Hotsy registered and received a certificate from the federal EPA in compliance with the Clean Air Act of 1990.

Hotsy uses only safety certified motors which have thermal overload protection and comply with the new Energy Independence & Security Act of 2007 (EISA) in compliance with the NEMA Premium efficiency.

Our gasoline and diesel engines are Tier lll and IV final emission-compliant.

⑥  HEATING COIL

Hotsy optimizes heating performance by manufacturing 16 different heavy duty schedule 80 coil sizes that can be custom matched to any application.

Hotsy utilizes an upright heating coil since it is more fuel efficient and burns cleaner than horizontal coils.

Hotsy coils come with a 5 year non-prorated warranty.

⑦  COMBUSTION CHAMBER

Hotsy combustion chambers are vertically-fired for extra efficiency and easy ventilation.

Hotsy conforms to UL-296 Oil Burner safety standards and meets or exceeds the Clean Air Act of 1990 Certification.

Hotsy-Advantage⑧  THERMOSTAT

Hotsy pressure washers use thermostats for adjusting the temperature, which saves fuel without compromising cleaning power.

⑨  TRANSPARENT PLASTIC BOWL FUEL FILTER

Hotsy’s transparent plastic bowl fuel filter allows the operator to see and remove any sediment or water in the fuel system before it can reduce burner efficiency.

⑩  ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS AND ENCLOSURES

Hotsy uses only certified electrical components, meets the NEC standard and passed all of the rigorous current leakage, temperature, dielectric strength and water spray testing of UL 1776 section 84.

⑪  POWDER COATED PAINT SURFACES

All metal surfaces are phosphatized, then powder coated to ensure excellent paint adhesion, protection and longevity.

Hotsy uses the strongest coating available while conforming to environmental regulations.

⑫  POLYETHYLENE FUEL TANKS

Hotsy fuel tanks are made from flame -resistant material that has been tested to the UL 94 safety standards for flammability of plastic materials.

Our fuel tanks also passed the rigorous ball-impact, Izod and aging tests.

Hotsy-Advantage⑬  TRIGGER GUN

The Hotsy trigger gun ergonomically designed to prevent fatigue and meet or exceed UL section 70 & drop impact and aging standards.

⑭  WAND

All Hotsy wands are chrome plated for durability.

Hot water units come with insulated wands and are manufactured to exact lengths required by safety standards, preventing injection injuries.

⑮  HOSE

All hoses are clearly marked with working pressure and temperature.

Hotsy uses only reliable, long-lasting Class A rated hoses, which are manufactured with a burst rating of four times their working pressure for increased safety.

Each is equipped with a required 24″ bend restrictor to meet safety standards on models rated above 3200 PSI.
