    Well, here are a few excerpts from my latest endeavor. A long winter project finally coming to fruition.

    What is the chemical?
    Dwell time?
    Abrasion?
    Shadowing?

    240 degrees removes the gum with NO chemicals..
    With the proper safeties and controls in place, you can turn down the engineSpeed,
    to where the lowered flow gives the temp you want,
    ..with the tempControl set immediately above where you wantTo run..
    and GoFast !
    Lower pressure is safer on concrete, when you're concentrating the blast on such a small area as that.

    because an unloader on a pressure washer is set for maximum system pressure
    ..without crazy spike-pressure when you let go of the gun, and it should be left in that "sweet spot" for Safety.
    Adding a secondary regulator you can set for lower pressures as needed, gives you MUCH more control..
    The secondary regulator we recommend, is adjustable from 1000 to 2000 psi..
    this is good for tile & grout, or high-temp gum removal (without blowingUp a hose).
    Next is temperature control.. Adjustable controls to 250degr'F work fine,
    ..Just be aware of how fast the temp is rising, when you reduce flow thru a heater.
    So.. get to know the Nozzle-Chart, for matching spray nozzle size to the flow and temperature you want..
    For Reliability, Safety, and GoFast profitability.

    DoNot try anything mentioned above, if you do not have pressure gauge
    and temperature gauge to See what is Actually happening.
    ALL HotRods, RaceCars, and anything else of "high-performance" needs indicators
    ..for monitoring the systems.
