Plant Comes Clean

Super Indy Steam Cleaner

Model: Aussie Super Indy

Experienced plant operators know that a clean machine is a well maintained machine. One company, Australian Pump Industries, has designed the best steam cleaner on the market specifically for cleaning heavy equipment.

“We have developed an innovative blaster with the plant operator in mind,” said Aussie Pumps’ Dean Fountain, “We know that construction sites are one of the most demanding situations for machinery and we’ve made our blasters tough enough to take it.” he added.

Called the Aussie Super Indy range, the product line-up includes single and three phase steamers with pressures as high as 3,000 psi and temperatures to 120 degrees C.

“This provides real shifting power” explained Fountain, “It’s obvious that if you can’t see the leak for the dirt it isn’t going to get fixed quick enough. Prompt preventive maintenance reduces downtime, increases efficiency and a better bottom line.”

In line with on-site requirements, the new machines feature a heavy duty stainless steel cover that is impact resistant. The cover is mounted on a robust steel chassis with integrated front mounted bumper.

“We decided to move away from European style machines with their traditional poly or plastic covers” said Fiatarone, “We have consulted with the industry and these machines are designed to take anything an Australian construction wash bay or maintenance depot can deliver.

The pumps are heavy duty Italian triplex design running at 1450 rpm for long continuous trouble free life. The range starts with a 240 volt single phase machine delivering 1500 psi (100 Bar) and 12 lpm flow. The machine reaches 120 degrees C, providing loads of steam power when needed.

Three phase machines are also available when more performance is required with flows of up to 21 lpm. Stainless steel burner coils are available for applications involving “hard” water.

The new Aussie Super Indy range offers timed “Total Stop” designed to shut the machine off after the operator releases the trigger of the gun. This not only reduces wear on the machine but saves power.

Other intelligent features include a “Micro Leak” control. The “Micro Leak” shuts the machine down if a leak is detected in the high pressure system. This is essential for maintaining optimum performance and eliminates breakdowns and subsequent downtime. Low water and low fuel cut outs have also been incorporated to offer state-of-the-art reliability.

Ergonomic dials give the operator infinitely variable temperature control. That means the machine can vary from cold water to full 120 degree steam by simply turning a dial. This steam function shifts heavy grease and dirt efficiently and economically.

Australian Pump has also developed a great range of stainless steel high pressure hose reels. These can be either machine or wall mounted. They have the ability to hold up to 75 metres of high pressure hose with the reel rated for hot water to 200 degrees C and pressures as high as 5,000psi.

“The new stainless steel hot water reels go hand in hand with the Super Indy range” said Fountain. “They are a real safety asset and substantially aid productivity and reduce wash down times”.
