Recovery & Separation Technology For
Not Just Another Vacuum Tank
Now coming on-line, HydraMaster’s new
MaxAir Recovery & Separation technology incorporates at least 8
improvements and innovations that have been engineered to benefit air
performance, water separation, ease-of-cleaning and durability.
The problem is that truckmounts today are
increasingly used in hard-surface cleaning which exposes the recovery tank to
large-volume surges of water. This combined with high CFM truckmounts can
sometimes result in water getting past the baffles and into the vacuum blower.
To solve the problem, bypass water has to be stopped
without causing undue restriction in the airstream that would kill the airflow
of the system. A large loss of airflow would harm the cleaning and recovery
ability of the truckmount.
The design of the new MaxAir tanks was not
a simple task and involved computers, engineering savvy and hours of “air
tunnel” evaluation. The result is a recovery and separation system that is
excellent at separating water out of the airstream yet limits airflow
New Lint Basket – The new
lint basket has 50% more open area and is therefore significantly less
restrictive than any basket we’ve seen. With a closer mesh structure, this
basket will catch and retain more solids. It’s constructed of stainless steel
and molded polymer for a lifetime of convenient use.
New Blower Filter – Big
improvements over the industry-typical “barrel” filter. More surface area for
less air restriction. Pops right out for easy cleaning. No tight folds make it
cleanable in seconds by hand.
New Air Path – A series of
Air Directors and Diffusers separate water and soil from the airstream with less
restriction than previous designs. MaxAir works with all blower sizes
without allowing water to bypass, even with high CFM systems.
New Top Lid Gasket – The top
of the MaxAir tanks has a 1” flat flange around the entire perimeter.
This strengthens the top as well as providing a substantial sealing surface for
the new “dovetailed” Lid Gasket.
Capacity - Compared to the former tanks, the new 266 litre (70 gallon)
has 7% more working capacity and the 380 litre (100 gallon)
tank has 12% more working capacity.
Universal Footprint – Now
both of the CDS models use the same
380 litre (100 gallon). The 266 litre (70 gallon) and 266
litre (70 gallon) tanks on slide-ins are the same width and height (the 100
is a little longer). All the tanks use the same internal components.
Improved Strength & Durability –
The MaxAir tanks are built of thicker aluminum and this,
combined with an improved internal cage structure and flanged top add up to a
stronger tank which will have a longer life.
