Australian Pump Industries announces new chemical-free steam cleaner
Australian Pump Industries has announced a new product as part of their Aussie Hydrotek range, the Aussie Hydro-Hush.
The Hydro-Hush was developed by Cairns-based entrepreneur, Brad Dowd, and is designed to steam clean flat surfaces without of environmentally harmful chemicals.
Brad developed the Hydro-Hush as he recognised the need for local Cairns councils and businesses to clean flat surfaces without breaking the law or harming the environment.
The steam cleaner can produce 4,000psi pressure with a flow of with a flow of 20lpm. That pressure and flow is combined with up to 130° Celsius steam to promptly remove graffiti, eliminate chewing gum, oil stains and food spills.
The ‘clean and capture’ system built into the Hydro-Hush allows the steam cleaner to carry its own water, capture the wastewater and recycle it for re-use.
The technique of being able to provide ‘clean & capture’ is handled by the machine’s ability to use flat surface cleaners, with vacuum ports, to suck up the contaminated water, feed it back to the ‘mother ship’ and filter it for re-use.
A number of stages of filtration take the water from its contaminated state and turn it into water that can be re-used without damaging the pump.
“The system is being used widely around Australia but this is a first for Cairns,” Brad says.
“It will change the way councils, fast-food services, supermarkets and other operators of public spaces think about keeping Cairns looking sharp.”
