Waterjet Intensifier Pump for Shops with Limited Power

April 14, 2015
Waterjet systems manufacturer Jet Edge, Inc. has introduced its new iP60-30 60,000 psi (4100 bar), 30hp (22 kw) hydraulic waterjet intensifier pump. 

Designed for waterjet shops that desire the reliability of a hydraulic intensifier pump, but have limited power, the iP60-30 draws only 37 full load amps at 460vac (60Hz) or 74 full load amps at 230vac (60Hz). It is capable of producing 0.6 gpm (2.3 L/m) of ultra-high pressure water at a continuous operating pressure of 55,000 psi (3800 bar). Economically priced and easy to maintain, the iP60-30 is ideally suited for rural shops, R&D labs, schools, and small budget-conscious waterjet cutting shops.

Like all Jet Edge intensifier pumps, the iP60-30 features a reliable tie-rod design that eliminates threads on the high pressure cylinders, end caps, and hydraulic cylinders. This reduces the likelihood of cracking and increases component life. Matched metal components prevent galling of hydraulic components. The iP60-30 includes a hydraulic accumulator to provide smoother hydraulic pressure, reduce spikes and prolong hydraulic pump life.
