Believe it or not, car washing technology is constantly evolving. Every year, we see new automated washing systems, new chemicals, and new tools that make detailing easier (or at least that’s what the creators of this technology claim).
However, one part of cleaning a car that has stayed pretty much the same has been the need for water…until now. SteamAmerica has developed a steam-based car wash system that promises to clean an entire vehicle inside and out while using only one gallon of water.
The obvious benefit here is that this system saves water. Many cities have rules that limit water use, which means residents in these cities are limited in how often they can clean their cars. Using the “Optima Steamer Car Wash Machine,” these folks can wash their car anytime they like.
The Optima Steamer has a small tank that holds a few gallons of water, which is then boiled to produce steam using the on-board diesel generator. The final temperature of the steam ranges from 150 to 167 degrees Fahrenheit once the device is warmed up.
