Change of Schedule
Due to inclement weather in New Orleans, the outside demos originally scheduled for Thursday, November 1, 8 a.m.-10 a.m. in Parking Lot F will now take place from 2 p.m.-4 p.m.
WJTA-IMCA's live outdoor demonstrations are a popular and unique part of the Expo program. Participants have the chance to see some of the newest equipment, including automated hydroblasting equipment, advanced controls, vacuum trucks/hydro-excavators, high pressure pumps, and more from a variety of leading vendors in action. Current participating companies include:
Gardner Denver Water Jetting (website)
The Nitrogen Pressure Regulator System offered by Gardner Denver is a best-in-class flow valve for multi-gun operation. This flow valve allows operators to utilize the full capacity of their pump by safely splitting and distributing water to as many operators as possible. The standard Pressure Regulator System comes with a four port manifold in 15K or 20K PSI options. Custom manifolds can be made by request to allow even more operators working off of one pump. With this tool you no longer need to run multiple pumps to get the job done. The nitrogen bladder within the body of the valve absorbs the pressure kicks so that each operator can blast freely without affecting other operators. As such the advantages of this tool include: increased efficiency, performance, safety, and lower overhead by reducing the number of pumps needed to get the job done.
