Tapping into the 30+ years of experience of well-known industry truckmount experts, the patent-pending 370 SS design employs trusted components combined with ingenious uses of space and high-efficiency heat exchangers to simplify operation and maintenance and ensure the longest service life at lower cost. All the power, half the space!

Utilizing a unique patent-pending heat diverter system to keep the blower cool, Sapphire truckmounts do not bypass or dump water to the waste tank, no matter how much time elapses. This saves water and preserves space in the waste tank, allowing operators to keep cleaning carpets longer.

The PowerPlant

The Sapphire 370 SS maintains the same compact framework as the Sapphire 270, while at the same time maximizing cleaning performance with an industrial 20 HP Kohler engine. Kohler Engines, based in Wisconsin USA, has been an industry pioneer for more than 80 years. Kohler continues to be the leader in improving performance, features and the life of engines through continual innovation and the development of the latest technology. The Kohler Command Pro engine that is utilized on the Sapphire Scientific 370 SS is the professional standard for power and performance and offers the best-in-class engineering and performance on torque, fuel and oil consumption, extended maintenance intervals and sound levels.

It has full-pressure lubrication which delivers continuous, positive lube to engine components. It also runs a full-flow filter that cleans the entire oil supply 150 times/hour, extending oil-change intervals to 100 hours and filter changes to 200 hours, under normal running conditions.

The high-efficiency design of this motor delivers greater volumetric efficiency and higher compression ratio with virtually no carbon build-up. Your truckmount engine will therefore run cooler with superior power and fuel efficiency, reduced oil consumption and less maintenance. Valve lifters are oil-pressurized, insuring that push rods stay in constant contact with rocker arms. Requiring no adjustments, the valve train is virtually maintenance-free.

A large-capacity, dual-element air filter traps contaminants to ensure proper engine protection. This results in long life, maximum engine performance and lower exhaust emissions. Also, a high-capacity, in-line fuel filter provides extra protection against dirt particles that can clog fuel lines and reduce engine performance. The result is faster starts, smoother operation and virtually no downtime due to fuel contamination.

The Vacuum Blower

The new Gardner Denver positive displacement trilobe vacuum pumps are designed especially to match the requirements of our industrial truck mounted vacuum cleaning systems. These innovative machines offer operators significant benefits and advantages such as highest quality materials and construction, heavy-duty design throughout, flexible installation capability, reduced maintenance with extended durability, greater performance and efficiency in a compact platform.

Key Features
QUIET OPERATION - The unique three-lobe impeller geometry allows higher throughput while creating lower pulsation levels than two lobe units, resulting in quieter discharge noise levels. Noise due to vibration is also reduced when the vacuum pump is engine driven. A unique internal feedback porting arrangement contributes to the further reduction of internal air chamber noise levels.

OIL-FREE AIR DELIVERY - Piston ring air seals are incorporated on each impeller shaft with a lip seal on the drive shaft for superior sealing to prevent oil leakage into the air chamber.

QUALITY CONSTRUCTION - Each model incorporates highly reliable splash oil lubrication at both the gear and drive ends for longer life and reduced service intervals. Independent oil sumps prevent cross contamination and allow the vacuum pump to operate safely on an incline.

QUALITY ASSURANCE - Every vacuum blower is manufactured under rigid ISO 9001 quality standards and tested to meet strict performance requirements before shipping to ensure unequaled service life under the most severe operating conditions. Manufacturing blowers for more than 150 years of quality manufacturing with proven results

High Pressure Water Pump

Providing the 1500 psi of heated water pressure is the legendary CAT 3CP triplex pump. It also has last-step chemical injection to which maximizes pump performance. This pump is not only high pressure, but also high flow – running 4.3 GPM, which is much higher than most truckmounts run. This pump also has Hot Dry seals installed to help prevent premature seal degradation. It has an electric clutch to turn the pump on and off therefore not running the pump and belts unnecessarily.

Quality has been at the heart of CAT pumps from the beginning. Quality design, materials and manufacturing are the key components to a long lasting, dependable pump. Special alloys, hardened surfaces and closely held manufacturing tolerances are all part of the quality you receive with each CAT pump. The heavy-duty, high-strength drive-end construction used on the 3CP pump that is on the Sapphire Scientific 370 SS assures you will receive long life from your pump. CAT pumps compact pump design, easy mounting to belt-drive, quiet, energy-efficient operation and low maintenance make these specially designed carpet and tile cleaning pumps the most economical and reliable for use in your truckmount!

Key Features of the Sapphire Scientific 370 SS at a glance –
