Water Jet Cutting & Water Jet Cleaning Applications

waterjet abrasivejet applicationsJet Edge’s ultra-high pressure (UHP) waterjet and abrasivejet cutting, cleaning and surface preparation technologies have applications in nearly every industry – from food processing to manufacturing and everything in between.

Waterjet Cutting Applications
Waterjets cut everything from bread, fudge brownies and cherries to rubber gaskets, diapers and carpet.  Waterjets also are an excellent alternative for cutting soft materials that are prone to smashing when cut with traditional cutting devices.

Abrasivejet Cutting Applications
Abrasivejets or abrasive water jets (also commonly referred to as waterjets) uses a combination of water and garnet to cut through materials considered “unmachinable” by conventional cutting methods.  The ability to pierce through material also eliminates the need and cost of drilling starter holes. Abrasivejets provide extremely accurate cuts with a high degree of repeatability over a wide range of materials and shapes. Abrasive waterjets are ideal for cutting metals, stone, ceramic tile, glass, plastic and other hard materials.

Mobile Waterjet Cutting Applications
Jet Edge's mobile waterjets are used to cut a variety of materials, including pipes, steel reinforced concrete, reactor vessels and fabricated metal structures. These rugged portable waterjets are powered by mobile waterjet intensifier pumps that are available in electric and diesel models.

Water Jet Surface Preparation, Cleaning and Coating Removal
Jet Edge's water jet surface preparation, ultra-high pressure (UHP) cleaning and coating removal equipment is used in a wide variety of applications, from cleaning ship hulls, decks and fish holds down to bare metal, to blasting away old highway lines and removing corrosion from parts.
