An Australian conceived, designed and built Aussie “Muck- Off” has been introduced by Australian Pump Industries. The Aussie Muck- Off, the big pressure cleaner, uses a combination of both high pressure and high flow to achieve huge time savings in cleaning piggeries, feed lots or chicken sheds.
Developed around the idea of a “wash and flush” system, the Aussie Muck Off delivers a whopping 125 litres per minute flow at approximately 30 bar pressure. The machine is compact being enclosed in a full steel roll frame with close coupled Honda 13 hp air cooled petrol engine.
The heart of the system is a triple diaphragm pump that uses positive displacement to supply constant flow at high pressure.
The Muck Off comes equipped with 2 hose reels. One low pressure reel is designed for chemical application, where required, while the second high pressure reel holds 30 metres of hose for the flushing and blast off process. Thus, the Muck Off will draft water from tanks or pits and can use recycled water as well.
One of the big advantages of the slow speed positive displacement pump is that the Muck Off will self prime from up to 2 ½ to 3 metres and will even pass small solids in suspension. The pump’s operating characteristics are efficient and service is simple with the replacement of diaphragm being accomplished within a matter of minutes. Repairs can be carried out in the field with basic mechanics tools.
The machine comes complete with applicator and blast-off gun with optional long length hoses available on request.
