Jet Edge 5-Axis Water Jet System Helps DRC Copper Mine Double Productivity

A remote copper mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo insisted on a Jet Edge EDGE X-5 5-axis waterjet system when it came time for them to buy their second water jet. They had powered their first waterjet with a Jet Edge X-Stream intensifier pump and were confident in the reliability of Jet Edge equipment. They knew they could depend on Jet Edge to get them waterjet parts quickly and on-time despite their incredibly remote location which is at least a three week’s drive from Johannesburg, South Africa.  Read More

Centura Oil Helps Uranium Mine Maximize Ore Recovery with Jet Edge-Powered Ultra-High Pressure Water Jet

When a uranium mine needed to extract hundreds of pipes and casings that were blocking millions of dollars’ worth of uranium ore, they called Jet Edge customer Centura Oil Inc. of Minnesota. 
Centura spent two and a half years deep underground cutting hundreds of pipes and casings of various diameters, many as small as 2” ID, and cutting off casings just below the surface casing to allow for the overcoring bit to be reduced so the entire string of pipe could be retrieved. To add to the challenge, the pipes had been installed at a 70° angle and Centura had to make the cuts sight unseen at distances as far as 300 feet. Read More
