Carpet and other surface cleaning is often done with truck-mounted or portable extractor systems. These systems deliver pressurized water and/or cleaning solutions to carpets and other surfaces while extracting (vacuuming up) dirty water. The pressurized water and vacuum system is typically applied with a wand with a shut-off valve to control when water is applied. Water or cleaning solutions are often heated as high as 140 degrees F.
Truck-Mounted Carpet Extractor Pumps
Carpet extractor systems run continuously for hours cleaning carpet, upholstery, drapes, rugs, tile and more. Cat Pumps field-proven reliability has made us the leading supplier for truck-mounted carpet cleaning systems. Gas driven systems typically run between 3-4 gpm at 1000 psi whereas, electric systems run at 1.5 gpm at 500 psi.
Portable Carpet Extractor Pumps
Similar to truck-mounted systems, portable extractor systems are used to clean a variety of surfaces. Systems typically are driven with an AC or DC electric motor and operate from 0.5-2.0 gpm and from 100-800 psi.
Cat Pumps specifically developed a new line of 1XP pumps for carpet extractors that offer the most reliable and longest lasting pumps on the market. The newest series of Cat Pumps also remove the need for oil or grease which may contaminate a carpet or surface by using the fluid pumped as the lubricating agent. Finally, the compact footprint of the 1XP family of pumps allows customers to replace pumps in their existing systems. Check out the 1XP portable extractor pump at the link below.
