Aussie Pumps hosts masterclass in servicing hot water pressure cleaners

Recently Aussie Pumps hosted a masterclass on servicing hot water pressure cleaners. The aim was to both train service technicians and to demystify the mechanics behind the machines.

The participants were taken through the basics of the hot water machines and shown how by careful design, Aussie Pumps’ range of steam cleaners have been tailored for Australian conditions.

“When we set out to sell hot water and steam pressure cleaners in Australia, we knew that the standard European machines did not measure up to the local conditions,” said Aussie Pump’s chief engineer John Hales. “Reliability is vital, especially in busy quarries where the breakdown of the steam cleaner can mean longer maintenance times for identifying hydraulic leaks and engine issues with major consequences.”

Aussie Pumps set out to design key features into their machines that gave users advantages they felt were essential, without including over-complicated components with the potential to fail.

A prime example is Aussie’s Admiral 4000 steam cleaner, which is a 4000 psi steam cleaner with increased capability but with the advantage of using less water consumption. 

The Admiral can save time, water and electricity in the cleaning process. The 4000 psi capability, with flows up to 15 litres per minute, means it can move caked on debris fast, delivering huge time savings.  It’s the combination of steam (up to 130°C), 4000 psi pressure and huge flow, that get the jobs done faster.

The operator has the ability to vary both pressure and heat from the control panel to optimise performance and cleaning efficiency.

All of Aussie’s hot water machines come with four pole motors and slow speed heavy duty European triplex pumps. They provide a longer and trouble-free life. The range includes both single and three phase options with pressures from 1800 psi all the way up to 4000 psi.

They also come with stainless steel covers, replacing the traditional European style plastic cover, a steel chassis which is stronger and longer lasting than polypropylene and four wheels, not castors, for ease of movement on uneven surfaces. 

Aussie’s machines are streets ahead of imports. They feature a wide range of protection devices that are aimed at providing the maximum convenience for the operator. These include Timed Total Stop, Auto Shut-down, Micro-leak Detection, and Low Fuel sensor with warning light.

“What the masterclass taught our technicians was that Aussie’s steam cleaners are as tough on the inside as they look from the outside,” added Hales.

Aussie Pumps has comprehensive workshop manuals for servicing hot water machines available free of charge.
