Jet Edge debuts new water jet pump for precision cuttingMay 16, 2011
Jet Edge, Inc. recently introduced its new 150hp, 60,000 psi iP60-150 water jet intensifier pump. These water jet pumps can produce up to 3 gallons per minute of high pressure water for precision water jet cutting and UHP surface preparation applications. The water jet pump features dual intensifier systems and supports orifices of up to .64 mm.
Pump manufacturer Jet Edge said the new water jet pumps' improvements include an efficient kidney loop hydraulic cooling and filtration system, an anti-corrosive interior coated hydraulic reservoir, easy-to-remove lift-off covers, and touch-screen controls. The pump’s motor drive assembly is mounted on an isolation system to reduce noise and vibration.
The Jet Edge pump features the company's tie-rod design. With no threaded cylinder, no threaded end caps, and no threaded hydraulic cylinder, it's less prone to cracking than threaded designs. Jet Edge water jet pumps feature hydraulic accumulators to reduce wear on the hydraulic pump, and a hydraulic center section which incorporates high-duty cycle-rated piston seal and wear rings. The water jet pumps also feature attenuators, which smooth pressure fluctuations and deliver a constant and steady stream of UHP water to the cutting tool. This ensures optimal cut quality.
