Aussie Pumps has released its new stainless steel Super Scud range of industrial pressure cleaners. The latest addition in the series is a powerful electric drive 3,000 psi Monsoon 300 Super Scud.
The three-phase industrial blaster features the new “sharp free” ergonomic stainless steel frame fitted with four big “off-road” style steel wheels with flat free tyres.
“The new Monsoon Super Scud looks as good as it works, and works as good as it looks”, said Aussie Pumps’ chief engineer, John Hales. “We’ve developed the Monsoon Super Scud with features that ensure these Aussie built machines are world class. There isn’t a unit made in Europe that comes near it in terms of performance, quality, features or aesthetics. The Scud design frame eliminates sharp edges and that’s a huge OH & S benefit”, he said.
With a 7.5kW three-phase electric drive motor, this heavy duty pressure cleaner delivers 21lpm flow. This makes it ideal for a range of industrial applications requiring fast, continuous cleaning including wash bays and machinery wash-down.
The Monsoon 300 uses the TTL series “Big Berty” Bertolini triplex pump with ceramic pistons. This pump incorporate a big ribbed crank case that ensures it stays cool even in continuous run applications. The valve caps are fitted with a new Bertolini sealing system designed for higher pressure and longer working hours.
The blaster is classified as Class A under the AS/NZS 4233.01 safety standards and as such do not require operator certification by an RTO.
The power is provided by a heavy duty, IP55 rated, four pole TEFC electric motor. Like all Aussie blasters, the Monsoon 300 Super Scud features an ASP (Aussie Safety Protection) kit. The kit includes a thermal dump valve to protect the machine from excessive bypass. An industrial on/off thermal protection switch prevents overload of the motor and prevents pressure spikes.
High quality accessories complete the package. A heavy-duty gun/lance combination provides the operator with complete control of the machine with a trigger lock that improves comfort even during a long tedious job.
The company is in the process of a product launch on an international market as well. Australian Pump is a manufacturer of high-pressure water blasters and offers, in addition to the machines, a wide range of labour-saving, high-pressure accessories.
