Australian Pump Industries launched a series of new products designed specifically for civil engineering and earthmoving contractors at this year's CivEnEx in Sydney.
According to Aussie Pumps' Dean Fountain, their heavy duty diesel drive Aussie Scud pressure cleaners have been developed for tough applications in civil engineering and mining industries. The show presented a great opportunity for the company to display the latest in design, features and efficiencies of their product range.
Suitable for the hire and rental business, Aussie Pumps' heavy duty pressure cleaners are backed by a decade of research and innovation; the locally designed and produced blasters are now exported to Japan, Africa and the Middle East.
The Aussie Scud line comprises of a range of heavy duty, slow speed, high pressure blasters available in both petrol and diesel drive versions extending from 3000psi up to 7300psi (500bar). The company’s fine- tuned mass production program has enabled it to reduce costs and lower end user prices.
Only top quality diesel engines such as Yanmar, Kohler and Deutz are used, while standard petrol drives are all genuine Honda engines. The products also feature ‘Big Berty’ Bertolini pumps, chosen for their longevity, performance and reliability.
Aussie Pumps is now building large production runs of diesel drive pressure cleaners in 500bar, 25-litre combinations, ideal for cleaning big plants, or maintaining infrastructure in mines and quarries.
The company also pioneered super high pressure hydrostatic test units suitable for coal seam gas and oil exploration. These heavy duty machines, incorporating a one piece hot galvanised frame trolley, have proved themselves in some of the toughest applications in Australia’s mining and construction markets.
Aussie Pumps’ product portfolio also includes a new range of hot water steam cleaners, available in electric, petrol or diesel drive versions. The big Aussie Hydrotek 5000psi Kubota diesel drive steam cleaner is ideal for heavy duty plant washdown in the field, helping operators save substantially on detergents and cleaning chemicals by using steam to melt grease and oil. The machine’s infinitely variable temperature control turns the unit into a very effective cold water blaster by a simple thermostat arrangement.
Local government engineers at CivEnEx were impressed by the heavy duty Australian designed pressure cleaners, and applauded the company’s ability to extend its sales into export markets normally dominated by European machines.
One of the stars of the Aussie CivEnEx stand was the big Aussie MQ600TD 6” trash pump, ideal for flood mitigation, construction site or quarry dewatering tasks. The big electric start 60hp diesel engine provides loads of power and the pump can shift up to 6000 litres of water per minute.
Free copies of the Aussie Pumps technical catalogue are readily available and special discounts plus free selection and technical maintenance information are all part of the package provided for members of the Aussie Civil Contractors club.
