This new Chief Steamer was well over a year in development and we are extremely happy to finally introduce it. The 155 is the big brother to our 125. HOWEVER, its not just a jacked up 125 that has been pushed up for higher pressure. First, it’s 240 volt only which provides more power and allows for a much bigger heater to make and maintain steam. Second, we engineered this from the ground up, with key components that are even more heavy duty. If you have a 240 volt electrical source, this may be the machine for you
- 155 PSI
- Thicker stainless steel body. Adds slightly more weight but makes it even more rigid
- weighs 39 pounds
- Continuous fill from water tank into the boiler. No down time
- Super duty 304 AISI stainless steel boiler which meets all industry-standard codes
- LIFETIME warranty on this boiler
- LIFETIME warranty on the heating element
- 3-year warranty on internal electrical components
- Boiler size- 4 Liter (total volume of water and steam)
- Large 5L tanks for water fill and chemical injection
- Fast heat time of 7-8 minutes for a boiler this large
- Large volume of steam delivery. 240 Volts keeps steam coming
- 365 degrees of steam inside the boiler
- about 300 degrees at nozzle after losing some temperature through the long 16 foot hose
- 16 foot steam and injection hose
- steam pressure adjustment from valve on front
- chemical injection adjustment from valve on front
- 14 foot power cord
- 39 pounds empty
- Dimensions- 19 inches long front to back. 13 inches wide side to side. 29 inches tall to top of grab handles
- Full attachment kit with brushes. Same as the 125 but with the longer steam hose
This is a note regarding electrical requirements. We have already had inquiries if the steamer will work with these “quick 240 converters” where you use 2 separate 120-volt circuit to make 240. Our machine pulls too much power to use one of these. I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT want these being used. If this is your intention, and I know it going in, I will not sell it to you. I don’t like these and I do not want them being used with this machine.
The 155 machine pulls 3800 watts at ALL times while the heater is on (which is almost at all times). If you are plugging each of these quick converter plugs into 2 separate 15 amp circuits at a MAXIMUM of 1800 watts each, you will NOT have enough to power this machine. you want a SURPLUS of 20% on the circuit. This is why when connected direct to 240 power on at “minimum” of a 20 amp circuit, you have 4800 watts which is more than enough to run the 155 machine. In my opinion, this can’t be accomplished with the converter. You would have to have 2 separate 20 amp 120V circuits. Even with that, these converters run hot at all times and may cause the 155 machine to be underpowered and struggle for the needed power. In cases like this, damage may occur to the 155 machine
So with this brief explanation, if a converter is used, there will be NO warranty on the machine whatsoever. I realize you want more power in a steamer, and this machine will give it to you, but you need the correct electric power to accomplish that. I do not think the converter will work, so I reserve the right to deny its use and not sell it to someone who wants to power it this way. I can’t be any more clear than that.
As well, I DO NOT want a transformer to be used. Transformers convert 120 power to 240 power by using coils and “transforming” the energy into 240 voltage. Again, this will not work when a machine needs this kind of power. They are bulky, expensive, heavy and NOT to be used. The same holds true if you want to power the machine in this way. There will be NO warranty
I want this machine connected to 240 power. It needs a minimum of a 20 amp 240-volt circuit which will produce 4800 watts.
