Aussie Pumps have just released a new addition to the Scud range. The stainless steel Scud high pressure water blaster is designed specifically for cleaning in corrosive environments. The new version has pressures up to 4,000psi and flows up to 21lpm.
The Aussie Scud is a registered design developed by Aussie Pump at their Sydney development centre. The aim of the project was to challenge the European world leaders with machines that are better, safer and more cost effective.
“Our design team believes we can do it better than the ‘world leaders’ from Europe by producing machines that are more reliable, safer, more aesthetically pleasing and operator friendly,’ said Aussie Pumps’ Adrian Fiatarone. “The stainless steel version suits corrosive environments like mine sites, shipyards and docks, where corrosion is a constant headache” he said.
The heart of the unit is a ‘Big Berty’ Bertolini triplex pump, running at 1450 rpm and driven through a close coupled fully enclosed gearbox. The machine comes in the unique Aussie ‘Scud’ frame, with four big thirteen inch off-road pneumatic tyres with heavy duty bearings for easy mobility.
The stainless steel Scud is powered by a range of diesel drive engines carefully selected to “power match” the Bertolini pumps used. The diesel engines are provided by leading brands Yanmar and Kohler, while the petrol engine models are powered by Honda.
Aussie Pumps have also just launched new 5000psi fully stainless steel hot water hose reel. Capable of taking up to 45m of high pressure hose the Hydrotek HAR150 is hardy and versatile.
A wide range of top quality high pressure accessories, designed to cut labour costs, reduce times and decrease running costs are an integral part of the Scud package. These include flat surface cleaners, portable drain cleaners, high pressure hose reels, turbo lances, grit blasters and telescopic extension wands.
“We’ve selected a range of accessories that turn the Aussie Scud into a complete cleaning system.” said Fiatarone. “You can easily add a stainless steel hose reel and extra length hose for those really big jobs!” he said.
A 28” stainless steel flat surface cleaner is also slashing cleaning times and reducing the amount of water used.
Australian Pump plan to launch the Scud range in Europe at the major European cleaning shows before the end year. Further information including a comprehensive document pack is available on the Australian Pump website (www.aussiepumps.com.au) and from Aussie Pump Distributors throughout Australia.
