Press release date: February 18, 2014

Kent, WA – PIRTEK Kent has provided on-site hose repair service in the Seattle, WA area since 2006. In the fall Owner Gabe Gilliam received a call from their customer at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup, WA. This year they added a new attraction, a looping inversion roller coaster which is called the Rainier Rush. It is the only model of this ride in the United States. It will take riders over 60 feet in the air before catapulting downhill around wild loops, along wavy tracks and bendy curves. The roller coaster needed service to ensure maximum performance during the debut in September 2013.

Mobile Sales and Service Technician (MSST) Ray Rios arrived on-site and immediately put his fall protection equipment on. First he needed to inspect the equipment and prepare a list of necessary parts. Rios had everything he needed in his Mobile Sales and Service Unit (MSSU) to complete the job.

Rios installed new hydraulic motors on the track just before the coaster cars would navigate the upside down loop. Rios plumbed 3 motor pumps on this section to speed up the trains. He also installed a new electric control valve on a tank and plumbed it into the internal manifold with hoses. Rios measured, cut and installed hose assemblies in various lengths and sizes. There were 8 PFMU25 hose assemblies with JIC fittings and ferrules and three 115 feet PFMU25 hose assemblies with JIC and NPTF fittings and ferrules. A variety of adapters were used including JIC and NPTF Elbows. Rios also provided a new custom mounting plate, check valves and gauges.

The job was completed in six hours with a very happy customer, who has already contacted PIRTEK Kent for other jobs.

PIRTEK Kent is located at 22018 68th Avenue South in Kent, WA. It serves as home base for its mobile fleet and is a convenient hose assembly source for walk-in customers. Like the mobile service vans, the Center is stocked with a wide variety of hoses, fittings and adapters for custom built hose assemblies.
