GENERAL: The entire MART Power Washer line was designed and engineered for Caterpillar to meet Cat’s highest cleaning requirements and standards. MART offers 104 engineered options for each Power Washer system so that each machine can be configured precisely to maximize the application. The fine points of the technology and benefits cannot be fully explained in this Comparison. The highlights:
Each MART electrical system, for example, is an engineered system to meet NEC, JIC and NEMA Codes: TEFC Continuous Duty C-Frame Pump Motor(s) with 1.25 Service Factor and Class F Insulation, Across the Line Motor Starter, Transformer in its own enclosure to reduce heat buildup of components in Main Panel, NEMA 12 Enclosures, THHN wire throughout, Flexible wire runs that terminate in compression fittings with seals at both ends, and sealed Liquid Tight Conduit. Wash Pumps are engineered by MART without seals or metal-to-metal contact in wet end, Hardened Machined Alloy Steel Throttle bushing and Pump Shaft Sleeve of machined hardened stainless steel, Enclosed Impeller that is balanced to within 0.0074 inch ounces/ounce, and bearings that are B-10 rated for 50,000 hours of operation. Electronic Water Level Controls are service-free (virtually fail safe) and provide shutoff in case of high water condition, shutoff of pump and heat in case of low water condition, and a Rinse Bank (optional with Auto Rinse Cycle) so that each wash load receives a full and complete fresh water rinse. Posi-Drive Turntable Drive has Gear Motor with Clutch Overload Protection that drives Sprocket on Turntable. For operator safety, Loading Door locks in open position so that Turntable cannot drift or move when loading and unloading. Turntable Bearings are pre-greased and permanently sealed. The benefits of MART engineering and construction are (1) fast wash cycles (8 to 12 minutes per load on average for rebuild, and 2 to 4 minutes for new manufacture) and thorough soil removal from all inner and outer surfaces, (2) maximum reliability, (3) low maintenance, (4) lowest operating cost of any wash cabinet, and (5) longest economic life. MART Power Washer owners can reasonably expect 30 or more years of productive service with no reduction in performance.
