Water Jet Pumps Feature Reliable Tie-Rod Design

ST. MICHAEL, Minn. (August 31, 2009) – Jet Edge, Inc., a leading manufacturer of ultra-high pressure waterjets, is pleased to introduce the iP60-100 100hp 60,000 psi (4,100 bar) waterjet intensifier pump.

The iP60-100 waterjet pump produces 2.0 gpm (7.6 lpm) of ultra-high pressure water for precision waterjet cutting, water blasting, cleaning and surface preparation applications. It supports orifices up to .021” (.53 mm).

The Jet Edge iP60-100 intensifier pump features dual intensifiers for increased operating performance. A single-intensifier economy version also is available.

Like all Jet Edge waterjet pumps, the iP60-100 features Jet Edge’s reliable tie-rod design. This design has no threaded cylinder, no threaded end caps, and no threaded hydraulic cylinder, making it less prone to cracking than threaded designs. Matched-metal components prevent galling of hydraulic system components. Jet Edge water jet pumps feature hydraulic accumulators, which reduce wear on the hydraulic pump. Hydraulic fluid also is cooled and filtered. Jet Edge water jet pumps feature a rugged hydraulic center section which incorporates high-duty cycle-rated piston seal and wear rings; free-floating self-aligning plungers increase seal life. Jet Edge’s hydraulic systems have a 4,000-hour warranty.

Jet Edge water jet pumps also feature attenuators which smooth pressure fluctuations and deliver a constant and steady stream of ultra-high pressure water to the cutting tool, ensuring optimal cut quality. Jet Edge offers a wide range of electric and diesel waterjet intensifier pumps from 30-280hp; 36,000, 60,000 and 90,000 psi models are available.
