Jet Edge Inc. (St. Michael, Minn.) has developed iP55-280DS, a diesel-powered waterjet intensifier pump that is designed for use in remote and/or mobile locations where electricity is scarce, the system is powered by a 280-hp Cummins turbo diesel engine that meets domestic and international Tier 3 emissions standards. The pump is capable of producing a flow rate of up to 4.1 gal/min (15.5 liters/min) of 55,000-psi (3,000-bar) ultrahigh-pressure water for waterjet cutting, surface preparation and cleaning applications. The machine uses a pressure-compensated hydraulic system to drive dual plunger-style intensifiers. It also features what is said to be reliable and precise control of the electronically shifted intensifiers to ensure consistent performance.
