The Thermo-800, a highpressure hot water cleansing unit claimed to produce hot water at 3gal per minute at 85deg C and a pressure of 800 psi has been introduced by Michen Industries Ltd.

Cleanser's features include a non-pressurized heat exchange unit, a light-sensitive cell which automatically cuts out the oil burner in the event of a flame or fuel failure, an accurately calibrated detergent injection system with ratios between 25 to 1 and 1000 to 1, a water level control using no moving parts in the header tanks, and a control system based on easily replaceable plug-in modular units.

Operation of the unit which is mounted on two 12in. wheels and two 41n. castors is by two controls; the off /cold/hot switch and the calibrated detergent switch.
