Called the Aussie Hydrotek Hammerhead, the hot water pressure cleaner is designed for both cleaning and sanitising without the use of chemicals.
“Consumers seem to be demanding food products that are virtually chemical free,” said Aussie Pumps Project Manager Hamish Lorenz.
“The Hammerhead’s use of up to 130 degrees centigrade steam means users can both pressure clean and sanitise at the same time,” he said.
With a maximum pressure rating of 3,000 psi, the new hot water pressure cleaner delivers a whooping 5,000 psi EWP (effective working pressure) when used with the Aussie Turbomaster turbo lance.
The heart of the hot water pressure cleaner is a big, heavy duty triplex pump, delivers 21 lpm flow providing the operator with the ability to both wash and flush at the same time.
“The Hammerhead’s high flow, high pressure and high temperature is an unbeatable combination for piggery operations,” said Lorenz.
Designed for operation in harsh environments, the hot water pressure cleaner has full stainless steel construction including a protective cover over the coil and a stainless steel PROTECT-IT frame with lifting eyes.
Prime power for the unit is delivered by a Kubota 13.3 HP 2 cylinder water cooled diesel engine. The engine is set up with emergency shut down equipment as standard. Fuel for both the diesel burner and the engine come from a common 80 litre diesel fuel tank.
The burner coil is a pancake design with ceramic insulation and it has a stainless steel coil enclosure. Another major attribute of the machine is the 12 volt charging system.
“12 volts means real safety for the operator compared to 240 volt systems used in conventional machines,” said Lorenz.
