In response to demand from the mining industry, Australian Pump Industries has released a new Yanmar high pressure diesel water blaster as a part of their Aussie Scud System.
The Aussie Scud System is designed to deliver cost effective solutions with minimal environmental impact and is based on a new range of pressure cleaners and labour saving accessories.
The high pressure blaster is designed for tough, continuous cleaning applications and the Aussie Scud series is suitable for contracting, plant wash down, public utility cleaning, and for other similar heavy duty applications.
“The Scud system is all about cost effective cleaning with minimal impact on the environment,” said Aussie Pumps’ product manger Trent McVey. “Developing a diesel drive blaster was the next obvious step for the program,” he said.
The Bertolini triplex piston pump at the heart of the high pressure cleaner is powered by popular Yanmar and Kubota industrial electric start diesel engines.
Standard equipment includes an Aussie ‘soft start’ unloader that releases pressure in the hose when the trigger gun is closed. The hose is therefore lighter to move and reduces operator fatigue. Hose abrasion is also minimised.
There is also no kickback when releasing the high pressure blasters trigger which reduces stress on the pump, the gearbox, and the operator.
An ergonomic, steel frame provides protection for the pump and engine and allows easy maintenance access.
An optional ‘easy fit’ high pressure hose reel mounting bar can also be used as a lifting bar by bolting the hose reel kit on the bar to deliver up to 50 metres of high pressure hose.
The kit includes a whip hose that connects directly to the high pressure pump and a high quality 10 metre high pressure double wire braid hose, double stainless steel lance and professional 5,000 psi rated soft trigger gun.
A complete range of labour saving accessories are available including flat surface cleaners and top quality turbo lances and make the operator’s life easier, gets jobs accomplished faster, and provides better cleaning results.
