Over the last decade, Australian Pump has been on a constant program of product development for high pressure cleaning equipment to suit the earthmoving industry. The latest breakthrough for this dynamic and innovative company is the new Extreme series of 500 bar (7,300 psi) hydro-blasters.
These new machines take pressures and flows higher to provide more cleaning “whack” for key projects.
“We found that big plant cleaning needs a combination of pressure and flow to get the job done fast. The reduction of cleaning times was a big driver”, said Aussie Pumps’ Operations Manager Hamish Lorenz.
The Aussie Extreme is powered by Yanmar’s TNV series with an integrated control panel. That controller that provides full engine protection including an hour meter, low oil and high water temperature alerts.
THE HEART OF THE SYSTEM
‘Big Berty’ Bertolini RA series 500 bar triplex pumps were used because of their heavy-duty configuration and advanced design features.
The whole pump system is driven through with a reduction belt drive. This allows for ease and convenience of adjustment. The engine is limited to 2,400 rpms.
The pumps are fitted with ASP (Aussie Safety Protection) kit that includes a safety valve. That valve will blow off in the event of a pressure spike, protecting the machine and the operator!
The new series ultilise a modular cube design. This combines protection from Australia’s unique environment with the ability to be moved around on site. The unit can be forked using integrated fork truck tine slots. Lift eyes in the frame to allow it to be slung where appropriate.
A 60 litre stainless steel break tank, with low water shutdown, and 50 litre fuel tank is also installed. The unit can run continuously for up to 8 hours.
The Extreme series come in Aussie Mine Spec configuration. They feature an integrated flashing safety beacon, double insulated wiring, dual pole battery isolator and are supplied with a fire extinguisher.
Time is money in cleaning mining equipment. Accessories that get the job done fast are important. Aussie Pumps have a great range of up to 500 bar turbos that can cut cleaning times by as much as half.
