5,000PSI blaster safety breakthrough
Qualifying under Australia’s new Safety Standards for water jetters as a Class A unit, Australian Pump Industries’ new 5,000psi diesel drive heavy duty hydro-blaster is built to the same standard as the existing Aussie Predator Mine Boss, the machine.
By fitting into that class the new machines can now be rented for operators to use without the need for RTO certification, Aussie Pumps Chief Engineer John Hales said.
“This provides contractors and cleaning professionals with access to efficient, powerful machines that facilitate faster cleaning, rust removal and paint stripping,” John said.
“Aussie’s Predator A comes in a heavy duty galvanised steel frame with 23hp Kohler air cooled diesel engine drive. The machine is driven through a gearbox with a big Bertolini triplex pump operating at 1450rpm.
“The new compliant, super heavy duty machine can also be operated with an Aussie Turbomaster turbo lance delivering an effective working pressure of 8,500psi (580bar).
“The Aussie Mine Boss range includes a line of heavy duty diesel engine drive pressure cleaners and hydro-blasters from 3,000psi (200bar) to the 500 bar Raptor series.
“Mine Boss units all come with integrated E stop, battery isolation, frame mounted fire extinguisher and heavy duty centre mounted lifting bar. The machines come mounted on four steel wheels with pneumatic tyres.
“Gaining a Class A certification for a 5,000psi diesel pressure cleaner is a big breakthrough for Australian Pump and the rental industry,” John said.
“It’s consistent with our “Safe Operator” philosophy,” he said.
Australian Pump also offers a full range of Class A Mine Spec 4,000psi blasters powered by Yanmar diesel engines.
