For the first time at the Pumper & Cleaner Environmental Expo in Indianapolis, five companies performed live equipment demonstrations outside the Indiana Convention Center.
Hammelmann Corp. and Terydon demonstrated a precision ultra-high pressure (UHP) abrasive cut on a piece of pipe using the Jack Track Cutting System with a 43,000 psi pump running at 5 gpm. High-pressure water from the pump is mixed with an abrasive at the cutting head. The pump design enables safe and reliable continuous-duty operation at pressures up to 58,000 psi.
GapVax demonstrated the MC Advanced Series combination sewer cleaning unit, which allows the operator to observe and troubleshoot the entire system. Display screens control hydraulics, blower and water pump operations. All body functions, boom and hose reel functions, vacuum break, throttle, area and safety lighting are wirelessly controlled, while still maintaining proportional boom and hose reel control.
