Jet Edge has announced the introduction of its new 50hp, 90,000psi (6,200 bar) X-Stream xP90-50 waterjet intensifi er pump. The Jet Edge X-Stream xP90-50 achieves much faster waterjet cutting speeds and drastically lowers operating costs compared to traditional 60,000psi (4,100 bar) waterjet pumps, enabling users to increase productivity and reduce part costs.
The X-Stream xP90-50 produces 50% more pressure than a 60,000psi waterjet intensifi er pump, resulting in a 40 to 50% increase in productivity. Compared to a 60,000psi pump, typical operating pressures of 75,000psi use 30% less water and up to 50% less abrasive, resulting in a 40% reduction in operating costs.
The X-Stream xP90-50 supports a 75,000psi (5,200 bar) continuous operating pressure. At 75,000psi, it will produce fl ow rates of 0.7 gpm (2.61 lpm) and support up to a .011” (.28mm) orifi ce. Jet Edge X-Stream pumps can be installed with new waterjet systems or retrofi tted to existing waterjet systems.
