Usage Manual

The rotating roller brush was designed and built to clean solar panels, vinyl and aluminum siding.
It is a mobile, hand-operated unit designed to be positioned and operated manually on the surface to be cleaned.
Rotary hydrokinetically brushes offer considerable time savings in the cleaning operation performed on solar panels and building surfaces when compared to traditional fixed brushes.

- 580 PSI (40 BAR) pressure at brush head max
- 2.3 Gallons per minute (9 LPM) consumption
Recommended Pressure Washer: 3 gallons per minute (11 LPM), 1300psi (90 BAR)
Max. Water Temperature: 104° F (40° C)

For Pressure washing sizing the brush is the same usage as a #7tip in aPressure washer

Pressure Washer Ratingscould be:
1500pst at 4.0 to 5.0 gpm
2000psi at 3.5 to 4.0 gpm
2500psi at 3.0 to 4.0 gpm
3500psi at 2.5 to 3.25 gpm
4000psi at 2.5 to 3.0 gpm

32inch Rotating Brush Water Powered for Solar Panels

Instructions for Use:
  1. Connect the brush to the telescopic lance.
  2. Position the unit on the surface to be cleaned.
  3. Open the water valve on the telescopic lance.
  4. Begin cleaning the surface.
Stopping the Brush - Turning off the cleaning
  1. Close the telescopic lance’s valve.
  2. Turn off the water supply
  3. Open the telescopic lance’s valve to discharge the residual pressure.

Using water on glued parts may cause them to become detached. Do not use the unit on wood floors or parquet that are not well-sealed.
Be careful when cleaning doors, parquet, painted surfaces or surfaces coated with synthetic products, and aluminum panels.
Before using the brush, we advise performing a test on a portion of the surface that is notin view, to prevent damage or alterations during cleaning.

The Solar Panelstreated with the brush should be comprised of modules with a maximum tilt of 35°.
Verify in the photovoltaic system’s operating manual the type of brushes that can be used for cleaning it, so as not to cause abrasions on the panels’ film.

It is important to avoid all operating situations that could cause repeated and unexpected stops of the brush’s rotation, such as those specified below:
- In the case of surfaces comprised of panels, the maximum distance between them mustbe 3 cm to prevent the unit from dropping into the empty space between one panel and the next.
- The surfaces must be as free as possible of protruding bodies such as long screws, brackets, and terminals, which could obstruct brush rotation or rip out its bristles.
- The unit is not designed to withstand heavy accidental impacts, such as those caused by being dropped, or those that are less intense but repetitive, such as those resulting from operating in stepped areas.
- It is also very important that the operating pressure not exceed the maximum value indicated in the “Technical Specifications” in order to prevent excessively high rotation speeds from causing premature wear of the unit’s mechanical parts.
- When not in operation, never allow the unit’s weight to rest on the rollers’ bristles so as not to bend them.
