Waterjet manufacturer Jet Edge Inc. has introduced a portable waterjet pump made to maneuver in ballast tanks, ship engine rooms, passageways and other tight spaces.
The iP36-50 Modular Waterjet Intensifier Pump is a 50hp unit with modular design that produces up to 1.8 gpm (6.8 L/m) of 36KSI (2500 bar) ultra-high pressure (UHP) water for precision cutting, cleaning and surface preparation applications.
The unit includes three modules with lifting eyes that can be stacked to save space during operation or storage.
|The pump has three modules that can be stacked for storage (left) or linked up to 10 feet apart during operation.|
The pump’s hydraulic module contains the electric motor, hydraulic pump, hydraulic fluid supply, a plate style heat exchanger, and related components to produce the hydraulic power to operate the intensifier. That module also has an adjustment to set the hydraulic pressure that controls the UHP.
The pump’s water module contains the intensifier, attenuator, bleed-down valve, water filters, and related components to produce the UHP water.
The electrical module contains the components to operate the electric motor and intensifier; it also issues control signals and monitors sensor signals.
The modules are linked by hydraulic hoses and electrical cables that allow for separating the units from each other by up to 10 feet (3m).
Established in 1984, Jet Edge is a global designer and manufacturer of waterjet systems for precision cutting, surface preparation and coating removal. The company offers the widest range of waterjet pumps in the industry. All waterjets are manufactured in the United States.
