SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwired - July 29, 2013) - Falcon ProSolutions today announced the introduction of the new Peregrine 1800-XD, a compact, innovative, steam cleaner with a powerful, high-performance vacuum for the safe, sustainable cleaning and sanitizing of schools, hospitals, restaurants, food service operations and virtually any environment desiring to remove dirt or kill germs without the use of harmful chemicals.
"Steam has been an effective cleaning and sanitizing solution for well over 140 years -- long before chemical solutions were introduced," says Eric Downing, vice-president of sales for Falcon ProSolutions. "Healthcare and food manufacturing operations have been successfully using large-scale steaming processes for decades. With the new Peregrine 1800-XD, cleaning professionals everywhere can now achieve the same power and performance of these big steam units, only from a compact, easy-to-use, highly affordable machine."
The industry's most innovative steam cleaner, the Peregrine features four, patented inventions that, combined, will bring steam cleaning into the mainstream: Intelligent Boiler Technology (IBT), Extreme Duty Vacuuming (XDV), a proprietary and unique safety hose, and the revolutionary Cool Hand Tool System. Together, these four innovations make the Peregrine one of the safest, easiest-to-use, and high performing cleaning and sanitizing method available today.
Low Maintenance Through Intelligent Boiler Technology
Traditional steamers have long faced challenges from hard water and scale build-up. Left untreated, this led to the machines producing hot water instead of steam as well as damage to the boiler leading to an expensive repair or even the retirement of the machine after a short lifespan.
Intelligent Boiler Technology is an on-board monitoring system that tells the user when the steamer needs descaling long before the boiler coils can be damaged. The unique design enables the unit to be descaled by the end user and then put back into service the same day. With dual coil heating elements that provide more heating surface area than any other steamer in its class, the Peregrine XD provides culinary grade steam in greater quantities and at superior temperature range.
High Performance from the Revolutionary XDV Vacuum
Truly an innovation for the commercial cleaning industry, the Peregrine 1800 XD, also features a powerful vacuum system.
With a mechanical float shut off system to protect the vacuum, the Peregrine 1800 XD is specially-designed to utilize water in a one-of-a-kind constructed clear recovery tank. When the dirt, water and biological contaminants enter the chamber, they are immersed in a water bath. All debris then settles in' the bottom of the tank for disposal after use. The water, debris and biological contaminants in the tank are continually bombarded with UV rays from an onboard lamp through a quartz glass insert. This entire process works together to eliminate many common biological contaminants and results in a sanitized, virtually "smell free" recovery tank.
The vacuum is protected by a patented cone shaped fan/screen that utilizes the engine's normal rotation to throw any lightweight debris or water droplets that might become airborne back into the tank. Turning at 24,000 RPMs, any matter coming into contact with this fan/screen system is eliminated before it can damage the vacuum.
The air that comes from the tank goes through a by-pass type vacuum motor and is then filtered, before being exhausted, through a ULPA filter. The cooling air from the vacuum which contains microscopic carbon dust is also filtered by the ULPA filter.
Increased Safety with the Patented Safe Hose™
Equipped with the patented Safe Hose, the Peregrine enables all electrical operations to be performed through a low 5-volt connection. This safety seal means the connection and delivery of steam cannot be performed unless the machine and hose are properly connected. Simple and effective, the Safe Hose protects all operators and ensures the safe and proper operation of the machine with a minimum of training.
Engineered for Long Life -- and Cool Hands.
Traditional steamer designs delivered tools that were inexpensive but functional. Unfortunately they were manufactured of simple plastic and nylon components with little regard for prolonged use or the comfort of the operator. These units could only be used for short periods of time before the operator put on gloves or simply refused to use the unit until the tools cooled down.
The Peregrine 1800 XD breaks new ground in providing tools manufactured with high performance and heat resistant polymers for long life and a cool hand.
When steam is delivered from the machine, the hose and steam line together are insulated through a patented series of resistant polymers. Where other machines fail, the Peregrine creates a synergistic bond between machine and operator with the patented operator handle and extension tubes.
The Peregrine 1800 XD will be featured at the 2013 International Sanitary Suppliers Association exhibition and conference in Las Vegas, NV, November 19-21, 2013. For more on the Peregrine 1800-XD, please visit www.efalcon-inc.com
