Can I use a Generator?
--- YES you can! In fact, with the help of a generator, you can go 100% mobile. These steam systems are all electric, full commercial & industrial grade and require no fuel. All you need is a power source be it a wall outlet or a generator. Our 120V version works on a standard household outlet. Same kind you find all over your home if you are in the US. PICK A MODEL ...
--- GENERATOR SIZE RECOMMENDATIONS
* 230V Vapor Rino 145 PSI = Minimum 6,000+ Watts continuous running power . . . . . . (with a vacuum on at the same time as the Rino)
* 230V Vapor Rino 145 PSI = Minimum 4,500+ Watts continuous running power . . . . . . (running only the Vapor Rino, no other tools plugged in)
* 120V Vapor Rino 145 PSI = Minimum 4,500+ Watts continuous running watt . . . . . . (with a vacuum on at the same time as the Rino)
* 120V Vapor Rino 145 PSI = Minimum 3,000+ Watts continuous running watt . . . . . . (running only the Vapor Rino, no other tools plugged in)
NOTE: If you are going to use the Vapor Rino WITHOUT a vacuum or WITHOUT ANY other devices you may work with smaller generator sizes. MINIMUM sizes with NOTHING Else plugged in are as follows. 120V used alone can run on a 3,000-running watt generator. Bigger is always better. The 230Volt Rino can be run on as little as a 4,500-RUNNING/Continuous watt generator. Bigger is better. NOTE: “Running watts” are not the same as “Peek” or “Surge wattage”. Always buy a generator based on the lesser power rating on the box, often called the “Running” or “Continuous” watts/power output.
READ BELOW TO CLARIFY THIS. VERY IMPORTANT POINT… Many generators are advertised with their surge power capacity shown in big numbers on the box. These surge powers are only sustainable for very short bursts. You want to know what the actual nonstop RUNNING watts are. The running watts are always lower than the peek surge watts.
IMPORTANT EXAMPLE: When buying a generator, you might see the box say something like "8000 Watts with 6000 Watts running power". Always look for the lower running / continuous wattage output number. Do not accept the first number you read when buying a generator. Read closer. Running any electronic device on an under powered generator will damage the circuitry! Get the right generator and you are good to go.
IPORTANT NOTE: When picking a generator for our 230V system (ignore the following if you are getting a 120V steamer) we recommend getting one that has the 240-volt outlet in the form of a 4-prong twist lock. This outlet number type is a NEMA “L14-30”. There is an adaptor available on Amazon that works great with the Vapor Rino. (See 230v specifications on the 230v page for a link to this adaptor) This plug takes the 4 prong L14-
