Helping the Next Generation Get Their Start

HCC Competition

One of the most exciting events on the trade show circuit is the National Craft Championships at the ABC Show. This event brings over 200 students and trainees together to challenge each other in contests ranging across 15 skilled trades. The winners of the NCC can truly say that they are the best of the best, until the next competition anyway!

At WHEELER-REX we’re always looking for opportunities to help people get started, grow, and learn in their careers; whether in plumbing, pipefitting, or water works. Skilled tradespeople are more necessary today than ever.

For the Pipefitting and Plumbing competitions, WHEELER-REX is proud to help by supplying our high-performance pipe threading machines. We make some of the best equipment in the business, and we’re proud to give the students at the NCC hands-on experience with it.

The NCC is a great way to get trainees and students excited about their craft and encourage other young people to join their ranks and find a great career in the trades.

Hands-On Hydrostatic Test Pump Testing

At WHEELER-REX, we test every pump we make before it leaves the factory. In this video, Eric walks us through the testing process of the 300-PSI manual hydrostatic test pump.

Now you know if there’s any fluid in your pump when it arrives, your pump isn’t used, it’s left over from being tested. If you ever have any problems with a pump, don’t hesitate to call us. We know it works, because we tested it, and we’ll take the time to help you get it up and running.

Please note our full range of hydrostatic test pumps. While the handheld 300-PSI is a great choice for many applications, we offer a variety of powered models for big jobs.
