Determining Your Power Source
If you are looking to purchase an electric Optima Steamer, power source availability in your facility is a key factor to consider. Our single phase Optima Steamers run on 110/120V. Most, but not all, of our industrial Optima Steamers require 3-phase power on 208V, 230V, 480V or 600V.
If you are unsure about your current power source, you should consult a professional electrician to answer the following questions:
- Do I have 3-phase power?
- In what voltage is the power available?
- What is the “dedicated” amperage (AMP) available for machine use only?
If you run a mobile operation and have limited access to different power sources, consider using the Optima Steamer XD – our best-selling combination diesel/electric steamer. This model only requires a standard 110/120V power and draws around 3 AMP.
