Australian Pump Industries recently had two visitors from Italian
company PA to finalise an agreement on the use of their high pressure
accessories. Australian Pump Industries (API) is the leading PA high pressure
water blaster accessory distributor in Australia.
PA’s Stefania Benetti, Sales Manager and Alberto Benetti, Administration
Delegate visited Aussie Pumps’ 2.5-acre headquarters at Castle Hill in Sydney. The
use of PA’s high pressure accessories up to 1,000 Bar on Aussie Pumps’ new
machines being designed by API’s Chief Engineer, John Hales, was finalised at
John Hales explains that moving into the 1,000 Bar (15,000 psi) range is
a logical step for Aussie Pumps. The company changed the way people thought about

Stefania and Alberto Benetti were visiting Australia to introduce a wide
range of new accessories including unloaders, safety valves, couplings and
1,000 Bar rated spray guns.
PA’s factory in Northern Italy’s Reggio Emilia area is a highly
robotised facility with the most modern plant for manufacturing high pressure
accessories in the world.
According to Hales, the high pressure pump is the heart of any pressure
cleaning system; however, the accessories, from humble couplings through to
sophisticated unloaders and guns make those water based hydraulic circuits work.
Australian Pump was the first company to build 500 Bar petrol, diesel
and electric drive pressure cleaners in production line quantities. Hales
informs that Aussie Pumps will probably start with 800 Bar (11,600 psi)
machines running off 70 hp diesels to deliver 21 lpm flow, and then move on to bigger
flows and higher pressures to supply to key market sectors such as mining, ship
maintenance and production, or for grit blasting applications.
The fastest growing pressure cleaner manufacturer in the Southern
Hemisphere, Australian Pump offers free extended warranties. The company’s reputation
for quality and performance has made them a major success not just in Australia
but throughout export markets around the world. Aussie Pumps is ISO 9001
