Title (EN) WATER BLAST GUN SUPPORT APPARATUS AND METHODS
(FR) APPAREIL DE SUPPORT POUR PISTOLET A JET D'EAU ET PROCEDES ASSOCIES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A water blast gun support apparatus and methods for enabling the operator to direct the gun by a joystick attached to a pneumatic sinusoidal biasing control unit. Depending upon the direction the joystick is pointed by the operator, a controlled flow of air is delivered to pneumatic motion producing actuators which move the water blast gun to the desired position and maintain this position when the operator moves the joystick to its neutral position. The support apparatus absorbs the thrust of the water so that the operator is relieved from having to physically counter the force of the water.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil de support pour pistolet à jet d'eau et des procédés permettant à l'opérateur de diriger le pistolet au moyen d'un manche relié à une unité de commande à polarisation sinusoïdale pneumatique. En fonction de la direction donnée au manche par l'opérateur, un débit d'air commandé est envoyé à des actionneurs générant un mouvement pneumatique qui amènent le pistolet à jet d'eau dans la position désirée et qui maintiennent cette position lorsque l'opérateur met le manche dans sa position neutre. L'appareil de support absorbe la poussée de l'eau de sorte que l'opérateur n'a pas besoin de contrer physiquement la force de l'eau.
