Communication is easy to determine if it is recalled that the heat capacity of 4,200 joules per kilogram x ° C. The result is the time according to the formula: t = V x 4200 x (100 - 15) / N, where V - volume of the boiler in liters, 15 - the initial temperature of the water-flooded, N - rated power consumption less pump. For a rough calculation we take the value in watts from the passport. Time to get less real. The formula is given for the understanding that the time of heating of water can not be predicted in advance, in principle, it is wiser to specify the upper limit number. This parameter is linked to the power and capacity of the boiler. If one of the figures are not given, calculated using the specified ratio. Recovery time tells you how much you need a steam cleaner to get the first dose of the pair.
  • Steam temperature. It sounds weird, but squirt hot 100 degrees Celsius. Receiving coffee machines used to produce foams in milk. The higher the value, the less chance of surviving microbes.
