The purpose of the North American Model Engineering
Exposition is to provide a safe and secure place for builders of models
to display their static and operating models for others to enjoy.
In order to provide a safe operating area for these displays, a few
rules must be followed:
All running models must be under constant
Equipment and displays must be constructed in such a
manner that their operation does not endanger exhibitors, vendors,
the public or damage the building.
Liquid fuel is limited to 1/2 gallon per exhibitor.
Propane or other gaseous fuel is limited to 5 pounds per exhibitor.
These containers must be UL approved for the service used.
Liquid fuels must be dispensed with pumps, not poured.
Exhibitors using these fuels must be sure an approved fire
extinguisher of the type 3A40 BC is located on the display table.
The fire extinguisher location is indicated by a sign on a post
beside the fire extinguisher. Engines
running on liquid fuel must be designed and operated to reduce the
exhaust smoke emitted. There will be a safety disposal can on
the shipping dock to dispose of rags and paper used to clean up fuel
There will be no live steam used in the Expo hall.
Compressed air at 50 PSI is furnished at selected tables throughout
the hall. Our air manifolds are equipped with 1/4" NPT
fittings. The exhibitor will have to furnish any adapters
required to attach their equipment to the manifold.
Connecting lines and fittings to compressed air
manifolds and gaseous fuel containers must be rated at or above the
operating pressures. If these lines are used on propane they
must be designed for that service. These connecting lines must
not show any damage or cracks. It is recommended that a single shut off
valve be installed, and a pressure regulator be used to reduce the
50 PSI compressed air line to your operating pressures.
If you have packing or shipping boxes, please see
show staff for a storage area near you.
Please keep all aisles free and clear at all
times. Your display must conform to the space allocated on the
drawing and not intrude into the aisle ways.
All firearms on display must be rendered inoperable by
removal of firing pins, bolts, etc. No ammunition or gun
powder is permitted in the Expo hall.
The NAMES Safety Director and the City of Wyandotte Fire Inspector
shall have jurisdiction in
whether a display meets the intent of these guide lines.
