An industrial water blaster combining a 5,000psi capacity high pressure hose reel with the ability to take up to 100m of hose, is a big breakthrough in operator convenience and efficiency.
The designers of the machine, Australian Pump Industries , claim the extra hose also provides major OH&S benefits as well as making big plant wash down significantly faster.
The Aussie Reel Quik heavy duty hose reel features a stainless steel swivel and is incorporated within the frame of the large high pressure water blaster.
"Providing the operator with up to 100m of high pressure hose means a big plant can be cleaned without the inconvenience of having to move the water blaster progressively during the job," said Aussie Pump Product Manager, Hamish Lorenz.
"Hose life is extended as the reel provides safe, efficient storage of long length high pressure hose assemblies."
The machine, called the Aussie Predator, features a ‘Big Berty’ Bertolini pump producing 5,000psi pump pressure. It is powered by a Hatz air cooled diesel engine and comes in a full galvanised steel trolley with built-in centre lifting bar.
The pump is capable of flows of up to 21L per minute and is designed for continuous service, even in the most arduous industrial applications.
Australian Pump Industries claim there are substantial OH&S benefits in having a high quality integrated reel built-in to big industrial cleaners. The hose reel means long length hose can be stored properly when not in use, thus eliminating a potential major obstacle and reducing accidents on site. Hose abrasion is also minimised.
