A NEW 4000 psi drain cleaning jetter has been released by Australian Pump Industries . Called the Cobra Mini, the new machine employs the same high-pressure principles and design features of the Aussie Cobra, the machine claimed to be the world's best drain cleaning jetter.
The Cobra Mini is able to clear blocked drains quickly and safely. It also has the capability of chopping its way through tree roots, thus avoiding the use of unsafe mechanical drain cleaning equipment or the need to excavate pipe work to locate blockages.
The Cobra Mini, is powered by a 13hp Honda industrial petrol engine driving a "Big Berty" Bertolini 4000psi heavy duty triplex pump. The Bertolini pump delivery 15 litres per minute flow and is slow speed design for maximum longevity.
The pump comes equipped with the ASP (Aussie Safety Pack). The ASP kit includes a safety valve that protects the operator and machine from pressure spikes. A thermal dump valve to protect the machine from overheating if left on bypass is also part of the kit.
It is continuous bypass running that is the biggest single cause of failure in high-pressure piston pumps.
The Cobra Mini comes with an integrated hose reel that safely stores 30 metres of high-pressure lightweight drain cleaning hose. An optional 60 metre hose length is also available. The basic Aussie nozzle kit provides reverse jet nozzles that both propel and clear the drains being cleaned.
These include the unique Aussie Root Mulcher, a rotating turbo style drain cleaning nozzle, designed specifically for cutting through built up grease and tree root blockages.
The machine is built into a compact galvanised steel protection frame mounted on four steel wheels with pneumatic tyres. "We designed the machine to go through a normal household doorway," said Aussie Pumps product manager, Hamish Lorenz.
"We also designed cost out of the Mini to make it viable for all plumbers to move to an effective high-pressure jetter for clearing blocked drains," he said.
Further information including a free comprehensive document pack and video on drain cleaning is available from Australian Pump or authorised Aussie Cobra distributors throughout Australia.
