We recommend all Jetter Operators thoroughly read the following for important information regarding Jetter Safety and Injury Prevention.
What is a class “B” water jetter?
Any unit where ‘bar litres’ is 5600 or higher
How to calculate ‘bar litres’?
Simply multiple your pump pressure (in bar) by flow (lpm)
Example: 300bar x 20lpm = 6000 ‘bar litres’
How to convert psi pressure into bar pressure
Divide psi by 14.5 = bar
Example: 5000psi divided by 14.5 = 345 bar

The Australian Standards for High Pressure Water Jetting (AS/NZS 4233.1:2013) states that "all hoses shall be restrained" to prevent injury if they fail.
AS/NZS 4233.1:2013 - 1.6.17 Hose restraint
"A device that is attached to the hose and is able to restrain, withstand and contain the energy created at the time of a hose or hose coupling failure".
This is a picture of a wire braided hose restraint and carabiner that now come with all our jetters.
If you want your jetter to comply, they can be purchased for just $95 +GST.
Protect your hose and stop it from coming back out at you
