Klein Products, a mobile liquid distributing equipment manufacturer, recently developed SmartSpray, which it says is a first-of-its-kind, highly efficient hydraulic-powered water pump system.
The system is operated with SmartControl, a Klein innovation that uses the latest digital and controller area network (CAN) technology to provide an operator interface that is touch-pad or hard-key controlled, safe to operate, ergonomic, and easy to install and troubleshoot, Klein claimed.
“We always strive to achieve the highest levels of quality as we continue to develop new innovations, and SmartSpray and SmartControl perfectly exemplify that commitment,” said Barry McManus, president of Klein Products. “Together, these innovations create a water truck pump system that is safer, more efficient and far more functional than any other solution on the market today.”
SmartSpray is designed to allow an operator to control water volume and discharge pressure independent of truck engine RPM or ground speed. Instead of being manipulated by the breaks or accelerator, water discharge is adjusted using the SmartControl interface, improving safety at the job site, reducing power consumption from the truck engine, facilitating distribution of the precise amount of water required and eliminating wasteful overwatering, Klein said. SmartSpray functionality allows smaller-capacity trucks to perform like larger capacity vehicles.
SmartSpray also is built to provide long-lasting durability and value, Klein maintained. Energy-efficient technology uses only the power required to do the work, saving on fuel and reducing component wear and tear. Only top-quality, premium components are used in the manufacturing process, and the system is engineered to eliminate pressure spikes that could damage equipment.
“Cost effective, durable and simple to use, SmartSpray and SmartControl are designed to address the unique challenges of construction and mining environments,” the company said.
