NLB’s latest convertible units, the NLB 1005 Series, are the first in the water jet industry to combine the power of 1,000 hp with 4,000 to 20,000 psi convertibility for really large jobs. These rugged units offer the same reliability, easy maintenance and low operating cost as other NLB convertible units — 24 in all — and use many of the same parts. 

The 1005 Series includes two models whose inline fluid end can be easily converted with a simple kit to any of five operating pressures and flows, up to a maximum flow of 333 gpm. These diesel-powered units are built around NLB’s slow-running quintuplex plunger pump, which is known for minimizing wear and maintenance. They feature internal gearing that eliminates the need for large pulleys or belts, reducing the overall footprint. 

Other high-uptime features include a forged steel crankshaft mounted in heavy-duty bearings and drive pinion output shafts on both sides of the pump to accommodate opposite-hand drive. All operating controls, including the bypass valve and pressure gauge with snubber, are mounted on a separate accessory manifold for extra protection. 

NLB Corp., a global provider off high-pressure and ultra-high pressure water jet systems, manufactures a full line of quality waterjetting pump units and accessories for contractor and industrial uses. Applications include product removal, surface preparation, tube and pipe cleaning, drill pipe cleaning, pavement marking and rubber removal, tank cleaning, tube bundle cleaning, concrete hydrodemolition, concrete and pipe cutting, and more.
