Waterjet pump uses less electricity
Jet Edge Inc. has introduced the Eco-Jet waterjet pump. The 55-KSI, 30-HP unit features a direct-drive pump design that consumes up to 40 percent less electricity than a 50-HP pump while producing the same output, the manufacturer reports.
The pump produces up to 1 GPM of ultrahigh-pressure water for precision cutting, cleaning, and surface preparation applications. It runs a 0.015-in. waterjet orifice and can power most manufacturers' waterjet cutting systems and waterjet tools.
