AUSTRALIAN Pump Industries has released the Aussie Clear Flo, a 250 micron suction filter that extends the life of high-pressure cleaning equipment. The suction cartridge filters out impurities, protecting the pressure cleaner's pump, unloader valve and gun.
All high-pressure cleaners use a triplex or axial design piston pump to supply high-pressure water. Those piston pumps are more related to hydraulic design than conventional water pump equipment. Their fine tolerances are particularly susceptible to failure generated by liquid containing contaminates.
The filters are available in a 1.25L cartridge that is 240mm tall. They are supplied with clear bowls for easy visual inspection of the element without dismantling the filter. The filter can operate with flows of up to 3500L/h and can handle liquids with a maximum temperature of up to 40°C. The filter head is designed with one-inch ports with brass inserts for long, trouble-free life.
