We at Pumps Australia have developed a Pressure Cleaner Selection Guide designed to help you choose a unit with the correct BAR/PSI to meet your specific needs.
Under AS-NZS 4233.1-1999 BAR-Litre formula dictates to Australian Standards on what is the acceptable flow and pressure for a high-pressure unit.
When selecting a pump for your applications, it is important to remember that units with an output capability greater than 800 bar litres per minute and less than 5600 bar litres per minute are identified as Class A, while and systems with an output capability more than 5600 bar litres per minute are Class B.
While Class A units can be operated by a single person, Class B units require dual person operation.

██ Cutting & Demolition / Surface Preparation (Painting Stripping & De-rusting using Abrasives such as Garnet)
██ Enamel Stripping (Grid-irons, Body Skids)
██ Heavy Concrete Removal (Hydrodemolition)
██ Tube Bundle Cleaning
██ Cleaning Vessels, Containers, Reactors & Autoclaves
██ Pipe Cleaning
██ Workshop, Rool, Farm, Truck Cleaning & General Industry
██ Sewer Cleaning
BAR-Litre Formula: Pressure(BAR) x Flow(LPM)
Example #1: 120 BAR x 10LPM = 1200BAR/Litre (Class A)
This would be a single operator with no accredited training required to operate.
Example #2: 350 BAR x 21LPM = 7350BAR/Litre (Class B)
This would be dual operators with the accredited training required to operate.
Understanding what BAR-Litre means
Under AS-NZS 4233.1-1999 BAR-Litre formula dictates to Australian Standards on what is the acceptable flow and pressure for a high-pressure unit. It is important to select the appropriate unit, as extreme high-pressure water is dangerous.
800 to 5600BAR-Litre – Single Person Operation
5600BAR-Litre & Over – Dual Person Operation
