Types of Commercial Steam Irons

Text image with blue background and a commercial steam iron on the righthand side with the text

There are many commercial steam irons, and with various sizes available, they are suitable for many applications.
Most commercial steam iron systems use either steam generators or gravity-fed irons. The main differentiator is that steam generators have boilers, and steam is delivered to the iron from the boiler. With gravity-feed steam irons, water is delivered to a steam chamber in the iron.

With higher pressure and temperatures, steam generator irons deliver dryer steam with less humidity. When not in use, the iron rests horizontally on a silicone pad, not vertically on the ironing .board. Because the soleplate of the iron and the steam boiler have separate thermostats, you can quickly adjust them for different fabrics without losing pressure.

Gravity-feed steam irons are durable irons meant to be turned on and left going all day long. As long as you have water in the tank, you will have steam in the iron. Most brands have interchangeable parts; you can replace everything from the tank to the thermostat.

Home Sewing and Light Commercial Use Steam Irons

For daily use, home sewing, and light commercial applications, look for a commercial steam iron built for light commercial use for up to 3-4 hours at a time.

GoldStar Heavy Duty Steam Iron with Boiler

The GoldStar Heavy Duty Steam Iron With Boiler is an advanced ironing system that provides a continuous supply of high-pressure steam. The steam irons typically consist of two main components: a water reservoir (boiler) and an iron connected via a steam hose.

Steam irons with boilers generate a greater volume of steam compared to traditional irons. This is due to the presence of a separate water tank, which provides a continuous supply of water to the boiler, allowing for extended ironing sessions without the need for frequent refills.

These irons can produce steam at higher pressures, resulting in better wrinkle removal and more efficient ironing. The increased steam pressure helps penetrate fabrics effectively, making it easier to eliminate stubborn wrinkles and creases.

The combination of higher steam production and pressure can significantly reduce ironing time. The powerful steam output helps relax the fabric fibers, allowing for smoother and quicker ironing.

This steam iron boilers have a vertical steaming function. This feature enables you to steam hanging garments, curtains, and upholstery without the need for an ironing board. It's useful for refreshing and removing wrinkles from items that are difficult to iron conventionally.

This iron often offers adjustable steam settings, allowing you to customize the steam output based on the fabric type and ironing requirements. Some models also have additional features like a burst of steam or a continuous steam option.

To prevent the build-up of mineral deposits and ensure optimal performance, many steam irons with boilers incorporate anti-scale and self-cleaning systems. These features help prolong the iron's lifespan and maintain steam output efficiency.

Heavy Commercial Use Steam Irons

If you’re running a busy hotel laundry, a large care home, or a drapery business, you need a quality steam generator iron for continuous use for up to 8 hours daily.

Buying Guide for Commercial Steam Irons

Carefully examine these important features when you’re purchasing a commercial steam iron:

  • Power - The higher the wattage, the faster the steam will build up. Look for an iron with around 1500 watts or more if you need fast recovery times.
  • Size - Consider the size of the water tank and soleplate.
  • Weight - Lightweight irons are best for extended usage, but heavier irons are more durable.
  • Temperature and steam settings - Automatic and adjustable settings make your job easier when you need to make quick adjustments for a variety of fabric types.
  • Interchangeable and replaceable parts - You may have to pay more upfront for a quality machine, but they usually have replaceable parts, which means you’ll save in the long run.
  • Brands - Look for quality brand names that have good reviews.
  • Price - There’s a wide range of prices, but since commercial steam irons are expensive, you can save a lot of money by shopping around.
  • Additional features - Special features like descaling functions and retractable cords.

Always read customer reviews and check warranty information when you’re purchasing a commercial steam iron.

Maintenance and Care for Irons

Like all equipment, regular maintenance of your commercial steam irons will ensure that it lasts longer. After each use, empty the tank and set the thermostat to its lowest setting. Most commercial steam generator irons have automatic descaling functions, but you may need to set the control to self-clean mode to activate it. Some models also have filters that need to be replaced regularly.

Untreated water is recommended for use in your iron. However, you can use a 50/50 mix of untreated and distilled water if you have hard water. Hard water contains higher levels of dissolved minerals such as calcium and magnesium, which can be beneficial for steam irons used in the commercial garment industry. The minerals in hard water can help prevent the buildup of mineral deposits in the iron's internal components, such as the steam vents and water tank, which can affect its performance over time.

Hard water can produce more steam due to its minerals, which help produce steam as they have high boiling points. This makes hard water ideal for use in commercial-grade steam irons, which require a consistent and high level of steam production for effective and efficient clothing pressing.

However, hard water can also cause scaling on the iron's soleplate, which can affect its ability to glide smoothly over fabric. To protect your iron, it's essential to regularly clean the iron's soleplate with a non-abrasive material to remove any buildup. Using cleaners or solvents on the iron can damage its internal components and reduce its lifespan. Therefore, sticking to untreated or distilled water and avoiding using any cleaning agents is advisable.

Lastly, it is important to store the iron on its base when not in use and avoid placing it on rough surfaces or running it over zippers and buttons, which can cause damage to the soleplate or internal components.
