Inaugural Waterjet Expo Set for August

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

Comment | More

The 2010 WJTA-IMCA Expo, the inaugural meeting of the Waterjet Technology Association and the Industrial & Municipal Cleaning Association, is scheduled for Aug. 17-19 at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston, Texas.

The expo is dedicated to high-pressure waterjet technology and related industries, the associations said, and will offer exhibits and programs related to waterjetting applications.

Expo co-chairman Pat DeBusk, Inland Industrial Services, said the event will bring together product and equipment manufacturers and suppliers, contractors, and representatives of municipalities, industrial plants, and machine shops. Expo visitors can “see and compare new and innovative equipment and products for all facets of high-pressure waterjet technology,” DeBusk said.

Event representatives said waterjetting is a rapidly-growing technology used in various applications, including industrial and municipal cleaning, precision cutting, and excavation for the installation of underground utilities. The technology is used for reactors, pipes, storage tanks, and other equipment in the hydrocarbon, chemical-production, power-generation, construction, pulp and paper, mining, shipyard, and other industries.

The event also will offer “Expo Boot Camp” sessions on various topics, including:

• DOT regulations for trucks/trailers;

• Safety in waterjetting;

• High-pressure waterblasting;

• Reducing hydroblasting risks and incidents;

• Hose fittings, pressure testing;

• Is cold-cutting really non-explosive?;

• Waterjet 101—the capabilities and benefits of precision waterjet cutting;

• Video inspection of pipelines;

• Hydro-excavation;

• Static electricity—causes, effects, and solutions; and

• Tips for choosing a contractor.
