Features and Advantages
- Proven, heavy-duty, industrial, high-pressure intensifier.
- Slow intensifier speed – 15 cycles/minute. This slow speed both reduces the number of pressure spikes in the system and reduces the number of pressure reversals. This slow speed virtually doubles the fatigue life as compared to other waterjet pumps.
- One large accumulator insures low pulsations in the high-pressure system.
- All high-pressure tubing and fittings are Autoclave.
- A control panel monitors the system. The control panel includes:
- – start/stop button
- – emergency shutdown
- – motor starter and overload relay in US models.
- Highly reliable proximity switches control the sequencing of the intensifier.
- Oversized, low-load motor.
- Low hydraulic oil pressure – 2500 psi / 172 bars.
- A dial compensator allows for simple control of the cutting water pressure.
