Q. What is a Class B Water Jetter? A. Any machine over 5600 'bar litres'

Q. Is my Jetter Class B? A. Complete this simple calculation:

5000psi Jetter at 22lpm. Convert to bar pressure first.
5000psi divided by 14.5 = 345 bar.
345 bar x 22lpm = 7,950 bar.
This is above 5600 bar litres making it a Class B machine.
Any pump under 5,600 bar litres is considered Class A.
