Spitwater will be launching its new Brute hot water pressure cleaner on Stand SL124d during AIMEX 2007 – Asia Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition, to be held at Sydney’s Olympic Park from September 4 to 7, 2007.
According to Spitwater, the Brute is a purpose-built, fully portable, industrial, diesel-driven, 12-volt DC, hot water pressure cleaner offering a combination of high water flow and pressure to give mine maintenance crews and contractors one of the powerful and safe cleaning machines.
- 30 litres per minute water flow, said to be the highest on the market
- 3000 psi (200 bar) pressure
- Ability to produce hot water using safe, 12-Volt DC burners, which maximise operator safety by eliminating the possibility of electrocution
According to Spitwater’s NSW branch manager, Milo Gajin, hot water is the key for difficult cleaning jobs such as cleaning large mining equipment.
“Having hot water available in a portable cleaning system has been a problem in the past, as most reliable heating systems use 240 Volt generators which can become unsafe and as such are unacceptable on mine sites,” he said.
Spitwater’s Brute’ features two 12-Volt DC burners, using two heating coils, with each coil consisting of a 40 m long, ½ inch seamless pipe, horizontally mounted for better burning and less sooting.
At one end of each coil is a diesel pump, burner motor and two electrodes, each operating on 12-volt DC power, supplied by the belt-driven 55 amp alternator mounted on the diesel engine which powers entire the unit.
The pump unit is an Interpump T2530 high pressure, positive displacement pump with a solid brass head, ceramic pistons and enhanced valves and seals.
Power is provided by a Lombardini 19 hp, air-cooled, twin cylinder, diesel engine.
