Australian Pump Industries introduces a new range of industrial steam cleaners featuring a low noise operation.
The new diesel drive Hydrotek steam cleaner, aptly called the Peacekeeper has a noise level of 70 dBa, operates up to 120°C and features a pump pressure of 3,600 psi (250 Bar). The pump flow of 15 litres provides lots of grunt for graffiti removal, machine washdown or cleaning of public spaces in urban areas where noise can become an issue.
Powered by a 13.6 hp Hatz ‘Silent Pack’ diesel engine, the Hydrotek steam cleaner comes with an integrated 68-litre fuel tank that supplies both the engine and the machine’s 12-volt burner system.
A robust ‘Pro-Tect’ steel frame with built-in lifting eyes for transportation, and stainless steel panels and boiler cover are standard equipment. The Hydrotek can be mounted easily on a light truck, ute or trailer.
These steam cleaners are also available in a skid mounted version called the Aussie JAW (Just Add Water) Peacekeeper, designed specifically for urban space cleaning. These machines come with a 1,000-litre poly tank and a galvanised steel base with fork tines. Two hose reels are mounted at the rear, one high and one low pressure, enabling the operator to work up to 60 metres away from the machine.
The new Peacekeeper Series will provide contractors and government departments a new tool for environment-friendly cleaning in inner city maintenance work.
The new Peacekeeper steam cleaners are classified as Class A machines under the proposed Australian standard for high pressure water blasting. Being Class A, the Peacekeeper can be operated by one man under the new Australian High Pressure Water Jetting System Safe Operations Standard.
High pressure accessories available with the Peacekeeper Series include heavy duty turbos that boost the effective working pressure of the steamer and enable stubborn stains to be erased fast, as well as a range of flat surface cleaners, specifically designed for use with hot water, and available up to 28” in diameter. These hydro-twisters can cut cleaning time by up to 75%, making short work of car parks, shopping malls or driveways, saving huge amounts of water and maximising cleaning efficiency.
Aussie Pumps has also introduced a range of Safe Operator protective clothing for use with the Peacekeeper Series. Designed to withstand a rotating nozzle jet up to 500 Bar, the gear is essential kit for high pressure equipment operators. Both practical and comfortable, the PPE range includes aprons, jackets, overalls, trousers and gloves with the latest edition of the Aussie Jet-Stop boots.
