Aquajet Offers Ecosilence 3.0 For Quiet Operation and Reduced Fuel Consumption
Published: 21/12, 2021
Aquajet offers the Ecosilence 3.0 that reduces noise and allows for a more compact jobsite, while enhancing environmental stewardship and lowering overall operating costs. The new Ecosilence features integrated auto start/stop technology that improves fuel consumption, saving as much as 6.6 gallons (25 liters) of fuel a day.
The re-engineered Ecosilence is more compact as well. The entire self-contained system fits inside a standard, 20-ft (9m) shipping container. It also produces less noise while in operation, making it ideal for use in urban areas with limited space and strict noise restrictions. The new unit also has dramatically improved pumping pressure, operating as high as 43,511 psi (3,000 bar), and providing ample power for applications such as concrete renovation and road and bridge repair.
The Ecosilence 3.0 features an environmentally friendly, low-emission engine and high-pressure pump to power Aquajet’s range of Aqua Cutter hydrodemolition robots. The skid-mounted unit employs auto start/stop technology, which temporarily shuts down the engine when not in operation to reduce idling time by up to 50%. The engine automatically starts up when operation resumes, saving money and significantly reducing emissions. The integrated engine and high-pressure pump unit pairs with a state-of-the-art liquid-to-air heat exchanger to provide quiet, efficient operation for all hydrodemolition applications.
The new, skid-mounted engine and pump are isolated and heat regulated in a sealed compartment at the front of the container, limiting noise to allow operation in urban areas and other noise-sensitive environments. This innovative design also prevents debris or outside air from entering the engine chamber during operation. That means the Ecosilence can be used in harsh environments such as harbors or cold weather without negative effects.
Like all previous Aqua Power Packs, the Ecosilence 3.0 is easy to transport and set up. It measures 20x8x8.5 ft (6.1x2.4x2.6 m) while maintaining innovative sound-absorbing features such as insulated walls and doors. Despite the shorter overall length, the container still provides ample storage for Aqua Cutter robots, accessories, and tools. Additional options are available to customize this work area, such as a built-in workbench with a vise that provides space for jobsite maintenance and spare parts storage.
The Ecosilence 3.0 is available in several pressure and flow combinations, allowing operators to scale equipment to meet their specific needs. To help contractors select the ideal unit, Aquajet has launched the online Aquajet Configurator to walk operators through a number of standard and optional features for a totally customized Ecosilence 3.0.
