    The Optima Steamer effectively washes various surfaces using steam with high temperature (operational steam temperature : below 100°C / 212°F) and relatively low yet powerful enough amount of steam pressure. The heat of the steam helps break down dirt and mud on car surface very quickly and efficiently. Also, all Optima models are equipped with a moisture control valve that can add more moisture to the steam for a faster car wash. If you open up the moisture control valve, the Optima Steamer can spray up to 1200 cc/min per spray gun. This helps washing very muddy cars more quickly, but more water will be consumed.

The Optima Steamer’s steam pressure is preset at 8 bars (116 psi). This is a relatively low pressure rate, but powerful and sufficient enough to wash various surfaces clean and efficiently.
