Water Bowsers | Water Tankers

Cobra manufactures truck-mounted water bowsers, designed specifically for the mining industry, that are adaptable to fit a range of off-road articulated and rigid frame OEM truck models, ranging in size from 18KL up to a remarkable 190KL SUPA TANKA.   

As an OEM approved body builder with expansive design and development skills, Cobra provides water tanks that can fill fast, have high corrosion resistance, a low centre of gravity, and heavy duty mechanical, hydraulic and electrical components.  The dynamic stability of Cobra’s water tanks has been verified through independent analysis and modelling.

Our water tanks are pinned to the vehicle chassis using the existing bin pivot mounting points. The tank rests on elastomeric (bin) pads that allow the chassis to naturally flex underneath the tank. With articulated trucks, the front of the tank is pinned to the chassis at the hoist cylinder mounting points.

Cobra truck-mounted water bowsers can be fully raised to assist truck maintenance, and a range of standard options enable users to customise the rig to meet their own specific requirements for lighting, access, machine washing, water cannons, foam fire systems, and a variety of other features.

Cobra hose reels are designed and manufactured by our sister company CobraTech, and are used exclusively across all of our applications.

ADE ECO Spray System

Our water tanks are fitted with the innovative ADE intelligent spray system to suppress dust and optimise water usage on mine roads.  Delivering consistent, measurable water coverage through the use of the truck's GPS speed, the ADE spray system supplies a precise amount of water to the road.  Road friction testing can be done by Cobra to determine the ideal amount of water to apply to each type of road surface.

The ADE spray system comes standard with hydraulically activated spray heads and has a directly coupled hydraulic water pump combination.  This spray system reduces potential safety incidents, prevents over-watering and also achieves substantial water savings for mine operators. 

Additional Options:

  • Directly coupled hydraulic water pump
  • Hydraulically activated spray heads
  • Measurable water system
  • Ground speed water flow control
  • Machine washing deck
