Australian Pump Industries has recently launched the diesel drive Aussie Hydro-Loop, claimed to be the first portable diesel powered steam cleaning system in the world.
Designed to be “clean and green” the Hydro-Loop diesel powered steam cleaning system cleans and steams flat surfaces with high pressure, sucking up the contaminated liquid and filtering it for re-use through a unique five stage recovery system.
At the heart of the Hydro-Loop system is a 4,000 p.s.i, 21 litre per minute flow portable steam cleaner powered by a Kubota 17.5 HP diesel engine.
These steam cleaning machines have a temperature rating of 130 degrees, enabling them to melt graffiti off walls or move grease and oil stains from pavements, without the use of harmful chemicals or detergents.
“The diesel Hydro-Loop is a big innovation for us because it enables the operator to cut fuel costs, and have substantially longer prime mover life than a higher revving industrial petrol engine version” says Trent McVey of Australian Pump Industries.
The trailer mounted steam cleaning system comes with it’s own on board 800 litre water tank that provides the operator with the ability to both store and re-use cleaning liquid on the job.
The compact self-contained machine also provides it’s own power generation to run the 110 volt vacuum system. That vacuum system is in turn connected to the big 22 inch stainless steel flat surface cleaner. The Aussie Twister flat surface cleaner sucks up the dirty water, which is then filtered and re-used.
“It’s easy for the operator to use, and the speed of cleaning on large flat surfaces like car parks, pavements or walls on plazas is incredible” concludes McVey.
