Let's Talk about Your Facility's Floor Care
28 July, 2017

The floor of any facility is the resource that is used the most. Yet it's the one that is considered the least. Oddly enough floor care is also the area where cleaning occupies (and wastes!) the most time, energy and water.
 
We offer a wide range of solutions designed to improve cost control, boosts productivity, and maximize useful life.

 

Here are a few key items to consider in determining the right machine for your needs.
  1. Surface Type
  2. Inside or Outside
  3. Square footage
  4. Frequency of cleaning
  5. Desired outcome (reduce water, clean faster, clean more thoroughly)
  6. Available drainage and city restrictions
Surface Cleaner
Dramatically reduces cleaning times and labor required for the cleaning process. Cleans 40 square feet in one minute that would take 8 minutes using a standard spray wand.

Water Treatment, Recovery and Reuse
26 May, 2016

Water has become the most regulated, costly, and misused resource within companies. It is also the area where the most efficiency can be gained.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 Improve cost control, boost productivity, extend equipment life

Optimizing these improves cost control, boosts productivity and safety, and often extends equipment life as well. Wash water recycling not only saves money in sewer costs, it may also eliminate potential fines and regulatory litigation.

 

Servicing all industries

Water recovery systems capture up to 75% of waste water. Water treatment systems will remove pollutants from wash water, like iron, nitrate, sulfates and sodium, all of which contaminate well water, lakes and streams.

 

At Hotsy Pacific, we sell, service and repair a wide variety of water recycling and water treatment systems that recoup up to 75% of waste water in applications and industries such as Food Cleaning; Equipment and parts cleaning; food processing; Tank Cleaning.


Water Treatment is a broad term and can be as simple as filtration or complex as waste water recovery and treatment for re-use. In addition there are multiple processes and systems required to accomplish a desired outcome.

The following are key components to determine the correct system and size:

Steam vs Hot Water Pressure Washing
04 September, 2015

Steam vs Hot Water Pressure Washing

There are misconceptions on the differences between steamers and hot water pressure washers and many times operators and purchasers refer to them interchangeably which adds to the confusion. It starts with the fact that steam technology and its use as a cleaning vehicle has been around much longer than pressure washing. Thus the term steamer or steam cleaner has carried through to hot water pressure washing. Given that the word steamer is also widely use in other industries and as an appliance to take out wrinkles in clothing we thought we clear things up a bit.

Both technologies serve different cleaning needs and the benefits and advantages need to be examined thoroughly. In some instances both are needed to complete a cleaning task efficiency and thoroughly.

Hot water pressure washing uses the volume of the water to move the debris, similar to a broom. The pressure is used to dislodge or break the adhesion of dirt and debris from the surface and hot water cuts through grease and oils to speed up the process.

Steam on the other hand uses the steam's expansion to accelerate water droplets, at the boiling point, to a high velocity to loosen the dirt and debris from the surface. The closer the steam cleaner's nozzle is to the surface to be cleaned, the higher the temperature and velocity of the water/steam mixture, and the more rapid the cleaning action.

There are numerous factors to consider so to determine which process best fits your application contact us to discuss further.

 

BMPs Best Management Practices

Each month we provide industry and department specific Best Management Practices. 

Fruit and Vegetable Processing - Washing Operations

  • Use vibration and air to help clear fruit and vegetable of debris and dirt before fluming or washing 
  • Use brushes to clean produce 
  • Spray wash instead of submerging fruit and vegetables to wash them 
  • Use counter current washing 
  • Reduce overflow 
  • Use can cooling water for first flush water

State Reduces Water Use by Nearly 29 Percent in Advance of June Conservation Mandates

July 1, 2015 - As the State continues to experience near-record and record hot conditions, increasing the severity of the drought's effects on communities, agriculture and the environment, California's urban water suppliers reported the highest level of conservation achieved to date for the month of May.

Drought Conditions Force Difficult Management Decisions For Sacramento River Temperatures

June 16, 2015 - State and federal officials today announced the outlines of a revised plan for managing water flows in the Sacramento River for cities and farms while keeping enough cold water in Shasta Reservoir to avoid high temperatures in the river that could be catastrophic for endangered winter-run Chinook salmon. 

The Sacramento River Temperature Management Plan, which is required annually, guides the release of water from Shasta Reservoir to maintain healthy fisheries during the summer and fall, when water temperatures rise. In this fourth year of extended drought, with low reservoir storage levels and higher-than-normal predicted summer temperatures, the plan seeks to prevent another catastrophic loss of this year's class of juvenile salmon. 

Federal and state fish agencies believe such a loss would have devastating impacts to the long-term viability of this important species of native salmon. Read more

A FASTER WAY TO SANITIZE BARRELS THAT SAVES WATER!!
07 October, 2014

A FASTER WAY TO SANITIZE BARRELS THAT SAVES WATER!!

 Hotsy Pacific introduces the Barrel Steam Wand accessory for the Optima Steamer line of products used to sanitize wooden barrels.

Since the all-stainless-steel Optima Steamer DMS (DSS) and EST-S models have launched in 2012, we have received many requests for a wand built specifically for steam. Existing products on the market were originally made for high pressure washers and couldn’t accommodate the specific needs for steam which is low flow and pressure. 

The Barrel Steam Wand is carefully designed to maximize the performance of the Optima Steamer to save steaming time while achieving the right temperature to remove unwanted micro-organisms. It features a stable & self-standing rack and a digital temperature display to let users know when sanitation is complete. With the new wand, internal barrel temperature reaches 230°F just in minutes. With the right steam machine and the right tool, barrel sanitation will become an easy task.

A new oak barrel costs about $800~1,500. Moreover, if a barrel is suspected to have a trace of Brett, they cannot risk using it for aging wine as this could lead to a catastrophe of spoiling the entire batch. Steam treating barrels can potentially save wineries tens of thousand dollars if not millions. In addition to steam’s natural sanitizing power, steam uses a fraction of water to achieve similar or better efficacy. Organic wastewater management is another costly expense for food and beverage production facilities. Local authorities closely monitor the BOD (biochemical oxygen demand) level of wastewater originating from such facilities as part of the Clean Water Act enforcement. Since the steam cleaning process produces very little or no wastewater, this also leads to saving time, hassle and money.

SAVE WATER - CLEAN & SANITIZE with STEAM
12 August, 2014

Did you know that steam allows for better cleaning? First, it penetrate crevices and detailed corners of a tank or barrel better than water. Second, the steam kills bacteria, fungus and germs without using harsh chemicals. Steam sanitizes creating an environment free of contaminates that could effect the wine. And third, you’re saving a lot of water in the environment - especially for those drought stricken regions, and the water is not being thrown back with soap in the drain system or rivers.

Top Five Myths for Water Treatment Systems

Myth #5 - Maintenance is not required

Water treatment systems vary in size, type, and treatment level but regardless of the system, as is the case with any equipment with moving parts, maintenance is required. In addition, constant monitoring is necessary to insure that the desired water quality is achieved. Assigning the responsibility and creating a log sheet of readings is a great way to insure that monitoring is being completed on a regular basis. Preventive maintenance programs when completed on a regular basis will reduce down time and costly repairs. 

 

Myth #4 - Off the Shelf Systems Will Meet your Needs

Water treatment systems vary in size, type, and treatment level. Most companies have numerous types of treatment systems available. Determining what system will work best for your application requires some expertise and testing of your waste stream. 

Most successful systems utilize a combination of technologies to accomplish successful recycling. Too often, a company will purchase a packaged treatment system only to find it does not meet the needs of their operation. 

To be successful may require a pretreatment solution, a treatment solution, and a post treatment solution. The best way to insure success is to work with a company that is deep in knowledge of handling waste water solutions. Testing of the water and designing a system specific to your application is the only recipe for success.

 

Myth # 3- Potable (Drinkable) Water can not be achieved using Recycle Water

Potable (Drinkable) water can be achieved from Recycled Water by incorporating different technologies with steps which include ozone, ultraviolet disinfection, and carbon filtering.   Typically the final step involves membrane filtration.

The systems are normally only cost effective when there is a shortage of potable water readily available or the value of conserving water is considerable to the individual or company.
