    Electric TruckMount and porty must see LOL

    I designed and built the Vortex Amplifier. I will probably change the name, but as the name implies, that is what it does. I quickly realized that Roots or PD type blowers were limited, and "the bigger the better" wasn't the answer I was searching for- so I did my own thing and to the best of...

    Cat pump 1XP VS Pumptec

    My main concern with the smaller pumptec is it's a DC motor that uses an AC inverter that is intermittent rated- I would imagine the duty cycle to be in the high 70-80%. I like the pumptec because of the low amp draw and high GPM it delivers, but if you run close to or above max rating it will...

    Solution Dyed Nylon Question

    It's not two different batches of carpet, carpet pile always lies in the direction of manufacture. Usually the 1st piece is cut A-B. Then the second (fill piece B-C) can be quite a distance away from the end of the first piece and so on. Roll crush is the culprit as the closer to the center...

    ICS I guess their getting hard up

    I don't groom, by the time I put everything up I'm too tired... I read the article and the only line that made me think was the part that said we were suppose to return the carpet to the way it looked when it was first installed. I can attest... the guys that use the rotovac and don't groom-...

    northstar diesel hot box flow switch bypass ?

    The sensor is there to prevent vapor lock due to steam- if you took a garden hose and just ran water through the heater you would develop live steam in under 3 minutes. The flow switch has less of a dead band than the thermostat and causes the heater to cycle more, thus preventing vapor lock...

    4m blower question

    It depends if the blower is direct coupled or belt driven. I see so many 4mp blowers that are belt driven, over driven, or not properly tensioned get 3000-4000 hours before bearing round-out occurs which is when the shaft will wear due to rotating mass and loose tolerance thus allowing the...

    Nick Nellos Free Flow Gate Valve

    Depends on what your doing... I like Spring loaded set at what ever HG you think works for you. I also like the gate valve plumed in to allow for dropping the HG's when you have to do an area rug or upholstery... In my opinion the gate valve is used for guys that have 45 blowers or larger...
