A new heavy duty, high pressure, engine drive water blaster designed for the contractor market has been released by Australian Pump Industries .
The new machine, which was originally developed for expanding export markets in South East Asia and the Middle East, develops 3000psi pump pressure with an EWP (effective working pressure) of 4785psi.
Called the Aussie BB350H, the new machine is built tough for continuous operation in applications like brick cleaning, roof restoration, stencil-creting or property maintenance.
It is also claimed by the manufacturers, Australian Pump Industries, to be ideal for public works applications like graffiti removal, pavement and plaza clean up, the wash down of shopping mall car parks and driveways.
The heart of the system is a heavy duty "Big Berty" Bertolini triplex style plunger pump that features ceramic pistons and unique U seals designed for extended life.
Aussie "hot shot" hot water seals can also be fitted if the machine is to be used for hot water blasting to 80°C.
The pump is driven through a gear box and runs at 1450 rpm. This slow speed operation is designed to provide the operator with long trouble free life, even in severe service applications.
The unit is driven by a 13HP Honda industrial 4 stroke petrol engine with integrated low oil cut out device.
Standard equipment includes a super strong galvanised full roll cage style trolley that features tie down points, centre mounted lifting bar and oil drain ports for ease of servicing of pump and engine.
The framed trolley features four big 13" pneumatic tyred steel wheels for ease of movement on site.
The Aussie BB350 contractor has integrated detergent injection and a unique double stainless steel lance that gives the operator control of high low pressure capability at the twist of a wrist.
The lance is equipped with Aussie "Laser Tip" jets for super fine cut and precise, accurate cleaning.
The big machine also features ASP (Aussie Safety Protection) kit to protect both the machine and operator.
The kit consists of a safety valve to protect the machine from spikes and a thermal dump valve that shields the unit from over heating when left on bypass by dumping water when the pump reaches a preset temperature range.
A wide range of contractor style accessories that includes turbo lances, sand blast kits, rotary flat surface cleaners and hose reels are also available.
