Speed Up Waterjet Low-Pressure Pierces, Run Multiple Waterjets at Various Pressures with Dual Pressure Valve

Jet Edge’s patented Dual Pressure Valve® greatly increases waterjet cutting productivity by allowing waterjet operators to control water pressure independent of the waterjet pump.

With the remotely-mounted Jet Edge Dual Pressure Valve, waterjet operators can run multiple waterjet tables simultaneously at various pressures with a single pump. Operators also can perform low-pressure piercing operations without waiting for the water jet pump to raise or lower to the desired pressure, saving time and reducing wear and tear on pump components.

The Jet Edge Dual Pressure Valve will operate with any manufacturer's water jet pump, waterjet cutting head, or waterjet cutting system, and is fully configurable for pressure change ratios. Connection points are standard 60,000 psi-type. The Dual Pressure Valve is pneumatically operated and must be used in conjunction with another normally closed on/off valve or cutting head.
