    VELOCITY TECHNOLOGIES TYPHOON/HTM...A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE:

    First, a few articles and little history about Commercial Carpet Cleaning:

    Article from Wikipedia: Hot water extraction carpet cleaning equipment may be a portable unit that plugs into an electrical outlet or a truck mount carpet cleaner requiring long hoses going from the truck or trailer to the room requiring cleaning. Truck mounted equipment is advantageous where electricity is unavailable (e.g. for cleaning premises where the electrical service was terminated when the premises were vacated by a departing tenant.) Truck mount carpet cleaning may be unsuited to premises distant from a driveway or road, or on upper floors of a building. Hoses needed for truck mount carpet cleaning may present an inconvenience or tripping hazard to users of hallways, and pets or children can escape through doors that must be left ajar for hoses. Heated or air conditioned air will also escape from buildings when doors are left open for hoses. This could create a significant waste of energy in some climates. While truck mounted carpet cleaning equipment minimizes noise in the room being cleaned, truck mounted carpet cleaning equipment may cause noise and air pollution offensive to neighbors and may violate anti-idling bylaws in some jurisdictions.

    Brief History as I understand it:

    We'll start with the 1960's when most Professional Carpet Cleaning was done with a good pre-vacuum and a Floor Polisher that had a bonnet attached to it, As time went on, people had begun using refined oil products, especially Naphtha, both for removing cleaning stains rugs and carpets...also sometimes made their own cleaning solutions to spray on the area before running the bonnet over it.

    Then in the 1970's, people like Micky Bullets, Ed V. of CA and Donald Cook of S-B started creating their own Electric Truck Mounts! Some simply went to their local hardware store or in Donald's case Grainger and purchased 2-4 or more Electric Vacuum Motors, mounted them to a Tank, attached a hose, pump and solution line and "PRESTO"...ETMs! From what I understand, the above (3) mentioned Cleaned Carpets successfully for many, many years this way!

    Then...during the time of the Late, Great President Ronald Reagan in the late 70's early 80's when our economy was on an up-turn, Gas powered TM were introduced, most were Home-made Custom set-ups...(i won't get into how blowers and engines started to be mated together, as I’m really not sure, I DON'T HAVE A CLUE AS TO WHO STARTED GAS POWERED TMs AS WE KNOW THEM TODAY.), but one thing’s for sure; THEY HAVE BEEN THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD for many of the Professional Carpet Cleaners out there since their inception!

    BUT...THINGS HAVE CHANGED SINCE THEN!

    Change/s: Much has changed since the introduction of Gas Powered Conventional TMs back in the very late 70's/early 90's though, which could one day POSSIBLY make them a machine of the past for many Cleaners...possibly...NOT BY CHOICE, for the simple fact that most of the TMs out there use engines that are more harmful to the Environment than engines with pollution control features such as Catalytic Converters…even gas powered lawn mowers, weed-eaters, blowers, etc. are all under the Governments radar for excessive pollution out-put. LP and Electric will be the "Clean/Green" alternative for many of the small gas powered items that we use today!
    Below is a list of some of the changes that have taken place since the conception of the Conventional Gas Powered Truckmounts

    ECONOMY-

    IMPROVEMENTS IN ELECTRIC VACUUM MOTOR and PUMP TECHNOLOGY-

    PEOPLE ARE MORE CONSCIOUS NOW-A-DAYS OF NOISE POLLUTION, ESPECIALLY MANY GATED COMMUNITIES and/or RETIREMENT COMMUNITIES-

    GLOBAL WARMING-

    COST OF OWNERSHIP FOR MOST CONVENTIONAL TRUCKMOUNTS-

    MORE "ECO-FRIENDLY" AWARENESS-

    GAS PRICES!

    THE TERM “GREEN” IS NOW IN OUR VOCABULARY!

    WEIGHT OF CONVENTIONAL TRUCKMOUNTS-

    I'm sure there are possibly some changes that I'm missing, but I'm sure the above gets the point across.

    What's the answer to the above changes that have occurred and have a direct effect on the legitimacy of Gas Powered Conventional TMs both now and especially in the near future as Gas prices continue to rise?

    HOPEFULLY THE TYPHOON HYBRID TRUCKMOUNT!

    The V-TECH TYPHOON/HTM be able to provide ample power to clean at distances matching that of a mid-level powered Conventional Gas TM!

    BUT WITH:

    LOWER FUEL EXPENSE!

    THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE MORE COMPETITIVE WITH YOUR PRICING!

    THE OPTION TO USE ELECTRICITY WHEN LOUD NOISE IS JUST A "NO-NO"!

    THE OPTION TO LOWER YOUR CHANCES BY A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF EVER TELLING A CUSTOMER "NO", I CANNOT CLEAN YOUR CARPET BECAUSE MY TM IS DOWN FOR REPAIRS!

    THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROTECT THE PLANET, NOT ONLY FOR YOURSELF, BUT, MOST IMPORTANTLY…FOR OUR CHILDREN!

    THE OPPORTUNITY TO SIMPLY ADD TO YOU BOTTOM LINE EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU CLEAN CARPET!

    Someone told me that he heard a few Carpet Cleaners that have Conventional Gas Powered TMs say:

    “I MAKE TONS OF MONEY WITH MY TM, WHY SHOULD I BE WORRIED ABOUT THE 20.00 A DAY I HAVE IN GAS EXPENSE?”

    ANSWER:
    Because you’re in business to make as much money as possible, to be able to save money…stock pile some money for emergencies, put money back into your business, send your kids to school, have the ability to lower your prices, be more competitive, etc! NOT TO MENTION THAT GAS PRICES WILL CONTINUE TO RISE…THERE’S NO WAY OF GETTING AROUND THAT FACT! So, if you are really only spending “$20.00 a day” in fuel expense…enjoy it while you can.

    Let’s do some math real quick:

    $20.00 x 6= $120.00 per week x 4= $480.00 per month x 12= $5760.00 per year!

    I know I would not turn a check for $5760.00!

    Not to mention the jobs you did not have to turn away due to repair issues and the money saved for average Conventional TM repair cost/hourly service dept. labor rates!

    These are all issues that we HOPE to address with the TYPHOON/HTM!

    We will be doing all that we can and working very, very hard to insure that the TYPHOON/HTM is the BEST-BUILT, MOST VIABLE, FULL FEATURED, MONEY SAVING, “ALTERNATIVE” IN THE WORLD...JUST LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE WE MAKE!

    please note that I never claim that our Machines are "more powerful than a conventional gas powered TM"....

    Thank-YOU!

    albert,
    based on the info we've shared in our countless talks, i'm going to say this machine is every bit as strong, if not stronger, than any gas TM with a 36 or smaller blower, and i hope tp prove myself correct when i meet up with you next month!

      The other thing to consider is how much it costs to repair an ETM when it is down for repairs compared to a gas TM. Not sure if the heat exchangers for an ETM are as costly as the heat exchangers are for gas TMs or not or if they are as prone for repairs. ETM will obviously have lower operating costs compared to a gas TM but should also be more reliable and have lower maintenance costs.

      Gas TM owners if they can get over the ego thing and look at ETM/HTM objectively will be looking at performance and reliability the most IMO. Gas TM owners are used to having good suction, heat, and production times. They are less apt to give any of those up compared to a portable owner that is stepping up to a ETM/HTM. If they can see that the ETM/HTM can give them comparable results but with the lower costs and even more reliability I think only stigma and ego will keep them from getting on board. Particularly ones that have had their gas TM recently break down and had expensive repairs.

        Micky,

        I will certainly take the time to insure that it is everything that today's technology will allow it to be!

        I just finished speaking with PUMPTEC and they have decided to AGAIN...CUSTOMIZE A PUMP FOR THE TYPHOON!

        It will provide a TRUE RATED 1200-PSI WITH (2) NUMBER 2 JETS OR (1) 04 JET!!!!

        I'm also about to place my order from a Proprietary Generator Fabricator who is an Expert in the Fabrication of HONDA POWERED GENERATORS that run on Propane, Gas, Diesel and Natural Gas!

        The one I'm going to order runs on Propane and Gas!

        I could not have found a better Company to provide the Power-Plant for the TYPHOON!

        I will soon release my performance test data numbers of the 8.4 Motors, but cannot publicly share the configuration until it's release date....SORRY FELLAS, JUST DON'T WANT SOMEONE RELEASING MY WORK and IDEAS BEFORE I DO! Which I must admit...can work in my favor! (You will see what I'm talking about by that when I release the ETM Models!)

        The one thing I am not afraid to state:

        The TYPHOON will be THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE and SET-THE-STANDARD IN QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, INTEGRITY IN TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT ACTUAL PERFORMANCE NUMBERS and LOW COST OF OWNER-SHIP!

        Thank YOU Micky...THANK YOU!

          Well said Will,

          I could not agree more, and I HOPE you know by now that we will do ALL that we can to meet those standards/guide-lines!

          Thank-YOU Will, your in-put is VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!

            MINIMUM "RULE-OF-THUMB" POWER-REQUIREMENT-TO-POWER-OUTPUT-RATING IS A 10% CUSHION!

            WE ARE PROVIDING A WHOPPING 25% CUSHION IN THE TYPHOON MODEL and THAT'S BEFORE ANY AMP DRAW REDUCTION FROM THE NATURAL LOAD THE VACUUM CHAMBER INDUCES ON THE VACUUM MOTORS, WHICH ISN'T MUCH ON OUR EQUIPMENT AS YOU KNOW, BECAUSE OF OUR FREE-FLOWING/NO 90-DEGREE ANGLE/S VACUUM PLUMBING SYSTEM!

            (The CAT-5 HURRICANE/HTM has about a 17%-18% Cushion!)

            FABRICATION WILL BEGIN ON IT TOMORROW!

            THE MOTOR COMES DIRECT FROM HONDA ALREADY INTERNALLY SET-UP TO BURN PROPANE and GAS and COMES STANDARD WITH SYNTHETIC OIL FROM DAY 1!

              Cost of H/x....

              Will,
              In response to the following statement:

              "Not sure if the heat exchangers for an ETM are as costly as the heat exchangers are for gas TMs or not or if they are as prone for repairs."

              The price to purchase a H/x varies from Manufacturer-to-Manufacturer. As far as being "prone for repairs", that too depends on who makes them, which is why we personally chose to go with Nick N. of EZTM to develop and Custom Fabricate our GEN H/x. He has 15+ years experience in the Fabrication and use of H/xs and his Customers are very happy with the results and quality of his H/x.

              As you know, we are very particular about the quality of ALL parts and components on our equipment and only the best will do!

              Though nothing is perfect, we expect that you will get years of GREAT HEAT and RELIABLE SERVICE out of our H/xs, based on the successful history of the EZ H/x.

              Thank-YOU Will!
