Elkhart Brass said its automated remote control HydroBlast monitor system “is the ideal solution for your fire protection and cleaning needs. A versatile and reliable system, HydroBlast is ideal for fire protection applications, mining and construction equipment cleaning, and dust mitigation”. 

The HydroBlast monitor system is designed to provide the flexibility and reliability required for rugged and corrosive environments. Offering programming and configuration flexibility, it can be tailored to individual needs. Designed for frequent, repeated and multi-spray pattern applications, Elkhart Brass said the HydroBlast is easy to install and provides speed and efficiency while cleaning. 

The wash sequence is customer defined, allowing the user to programme and save washdown patterns for different sized vehicles and equipment, all with reduced manpower. The operator can also choose from utilising the HydroBlast remote control system or using customer plant PLC control unit to control the functions of the system. 

Elkhart Brass said: “The HydroBlast is constructed with performance and longevity in mind. Made out of corrosion resistant silicon bronze, the HydroBlast is built to last. Heavy duty cycle motors and industrial grade seals and bearings provide protection against fine mining dust and water ingress to ensure durability and longevity. A patented thrust rod design helps ensure extended swivel and bearing life.” 

Featuring flow rates of 50-700 GPM (180 to 2550 LPM), the HydroBlast has a stream reach up to 271 ft. (83 m). A wide coverage oscillation range (Vertical Oscillation: -45º to +90º) (Horizontal Oscillation: 350º) provides a comprehensive washdown of equipment of dust and debris, helping extend equipment lifespan.    

Elkhart Brass said mechanical stop limits and programmable safety stops help ensure both safety and accuracy when operating the system.
