A HEAVY duty, Australian designed and manufactured, 2000psi single phase pressure cleaner that cuts water usage, has been released by Australian Pump Industries .
Called the Monsoon 140, the new machine is designed for industrial cleaning applications where only single phase power is available.
Australian Pump claim the machine can save water because of its high pressure - low flow performance ratio.
"With only nine litres of flow per minute and big single phase pressure, the machine gets the work done fast and saves water at the same time," product manager Hamish Lorenz said.
The new Monsoon, in its 15 amp electrical configuration, provides 140 bar pump pressure (2000 psi) and 220 bar (3400 psi) EWP when used with the Aussie heavy duty turbo lance.
The Monsoon is powered by an IP55 rated 2.2kW, 4-pole motor with IP56 switch.
The industrial switch provides overload system protection, with the ability to turn the machine off if high amps draw is generated from pump over pressure.
The switch will also cut the machine out if it detects a motor fault or extension lead problem.
A version of the machine comes complete with integrated hose reel adding a new dimension of operator convenience. The hose reel enables the operator to use up to 25 metres of high pressure hose resulting in major reductions in cleaning time.
These savings are generated by the operator not having to reposition the machine several times during the cleaning operation. Australian Pump claim the hose reel will substantially add to the hose operating life and, in line with OH&S requirements, make a major contribution to safety in the workplace.
The unit comes with a heavy duty, Aussie Arrowline pro gun, vario zoom lance with variable angle spray and high/low pressure setting, and integrated detergent injection system.
Heavy duty industrial orange cable is provided and the ASP (Aussie Safety Protection) protection pack is supplied as standard equipment. The protection pack includes a thermal dump valve that protects the machine from excessive by-pass running.
