Hydrotek steam cleaner heads to mine site in Australia

AAustralian Pump Industries - Hydro Tek International Distributor

Australian Pump Industries supplied this Hydro Tek 5000 psi trailer to the mining industry in Australia.

One of our international distributors, Australian Pump Industries, had a Hydro Tek 5000psi pressure washer trailer featured in a article about mining.

The Hydro Tek 5000psi steam cleaner will be used to clean an extensive range of Caterpillar equipment operating at the Hastings Deering depot in Tabubil in PNG.

The mine site uses a wide range of equipment including dump trucks, D9s and several more plants that all have to be kept in perfect working order in spite of the weather conditions.

The steam cleaner can melt grease and dirt with the pressure and flow of the pump, 20 lpm flow at 5000psi, delivering the power to blow the caked mud off equipment so service technicians can maximise efficiency.

Key features of the Hydro Tek 5000psi steam cleaner include a 20hp Kubota diesel engine delivering loads of power to a huge triplex pump with ceramic pistons; e-stop function; specially engineered stainless steel rain cap over the burner exhaust to keep moisture out of the heater coil system; steam delivery up to 130°C with an infinitely variable heat controller enabling the operator to dial any temperature from ambient to 130°C; 1000-litre poly tank equipped with suction filtration; stainless steel hose reel rated to 5000psi and capable of operating temperatures of 130°C; 60m of high pressure, non-marking, 5000psi steam hose; and tank, diesel steam cleaner and reels mounted on a purpose designed, heavy duty, hot galvanised trailer with steel checker-plate floor and heavy duty drawbar.

The big trailer mounted Aussie Hydro Tek steam cleaners are expected to be useful for big plant operators, hire companies and civil engineers involved in mining, infrastructure and road maintenance.

  • Advantages of a Hot Water Pressure Washer

    Simply by heating up the water, a hot water pressure washer delivers dramatically improved cleaning power compared to a cold water machine. Hot water pressure washers are especially useful for cleaning sticky, greasy, or oily surfaces, because they will loosen the dirt much faster without the large amounts of soap, detergent, or other cleaning chemicals that must be used with a cold water system.

  • Hot Water Pressure Washer Applications

    A hot water pressure washer is essential for any cleanup job involving a sticky, greasy, or oily mess, as well as for applications where a surface must be sanitized. With a variety of models available, including self-contained mobile units with gas, diesel, or electric power, Hydro Tek hot water pressure washers can go anywhere and clean anything. Some common applications include heavy equipment cleaning, vehicle cleaning, graffiti removal, restaurant hood vent cleaning, and livestock facility cleaning.

Quality & Innovation Since 1985

Hydro Tek

From simple beginnings in 1985, Hydro Tek has grown to become the most trusted name in the pressure washer manufacturing industry.

How did we do it? By continually focusing on quality and reliability as the key to customer satisfaction, and by incorporating the latest technologies into our design and manufacturing processes.

By 1991, we were using computer-aided drafting systems to refine our product designs and improve efficiency. In 1997, we brought the power of computers to the shop floor by incorporating laser-cutting and other CNC manufacturing machinery, and in 2001 we began focusing on improving efficiency through the latest manufacturing techniques. The end result has been superior products delivered at a superior value to our customers. Through the next decade, we look forward to fulfilling our vision of making our products the "obvious choice" for all your industrial and commercial cleaning needs.
