100,000psi ultra-high pressure pump can cut 300mm thick metal while increasing cutting speed by 50% and saving 28% of the cost.

 

100,000 psi (pounds per square inch) waterjet pump refers to a high-pressure pump used in water jet cutting systems that can generate water pressures up to 100,000 psi. These pumps are specifically designed to provide the intense pressure required for cutting through various materials with precision. Here are some key points about a 100,000 psi waterjet pump:

 

1. Pressure Capacity: The pump is capable of producing water pressure up to 100,000 psi, which is significantly higher than standard waterjet cutting pumps that typically range from 30,000 to 90,000 psi. The increased pressure allows for more efficient cutting through thicker or harder materials.

 

2. Power Source: Waterjet pumps of this capacity are generally driven by electric motors or hydraulic systems. They require a reliable power source to operate effectively.

 

3. Intensifier or Direct Drive: There are two common types of waterjet pumps: intensifier pumps and direct drive pumps. Intensifier pumps use hydraulic pressure to amplify the incoming water pressure, while direct drive pumps use a high-speed crankshaft to directly generate the desired pressure. Both types of pumps can achieve pressures of 100,000 psi.

 

4. Pump Components: A high-pressure waterjet pump consists of several components, including an intensifier cylinder (in case of an intensifier pump) or a crankshaft (in case of a direct drive pump), pistons, seals, check valves, accumulators, and a water reservoir. These components work together to generate and maintain the high water pressure.

 

5. Water Supply: The pump requires a sufficient water supply, which is typically sourced from a reservoir or a dedicated water storage system. The water is fed into the pump, pressurized, and then directed to the cutting nozzle.

 

6. Cutting Nozzle: The high-pressure water generated by the pump is directed through a specialized cutting nozzle. The nozzle is designed to focus the water into a narrow, high-velocity stream for precise cutting.

 

7. Cutting Capabilities: A 100,000 psi waterjet pump enables the cutting of a wide range of materials, including metals, stone, glass, ceramics, composites, and more. The higher pressure enhances the cutting speed and allows for efficient cutting of thicker materials.

 

8. Safety Considerations: Working with a waterjet pump operating at such high pressures requires adherence to strict safety protocols. Proper training, personal protective equipment (PPE), and safety features on the equipment should be in place to mitigate any risks associated with high-pressure operations.

 

It's important to note that a 100,000 psi waterjet pump represents a significant level of pressure and should only be operated by experienced professionals who are familiar with water jet cutting systems and the associated safety guidelines.
