Ultra Lite Lance Waterjetting Tool

Waterjet lancing project at the Panama Canal.

Close up of lanced concrete.

Jet Edge abrasivejet lances were used to cut off the damaged wellheads during the Kuwait oil fires.  Note that the lance was positioned on a tripod for this application.

Jet Edge’s Ultra Lite Lance is a powerful 36,000 psi (2500 bar) hand-held ultra-high pressure waterjet tool for cutting, stripping, cleaning and controlled surface demolition applications.

The Ultra Lite Lance quickly and easily removes corrosion, spray residue, soluble salt, chemicals, and surface damage prior to re-coating or painting. The system eliminates hazardous airborne dust contamination, making it an eco-friendly alternative to sandblasting. The Ultra Lite Lance also can perform hand-held cutting of softer materials such as cutting off pipe insulation or thick layers of paint or coatings.  When cutting metals or other hard materials, it must be mounted to a tripod or other support mechanism and an abrasive head must be added.
 
Water is supplied to the Ultra Lite Lance from a Jet Edge Ultra-High Pressure (UHP) intensifier pump. The water is extruded through an orifice to produce a concentrated stream for cutting, or through a fan-shaped outlet for surface stripping and cleaning. The fan tip can be rotated 360° for precise aiming of the water stream.
 
Water flow is controlled by a hand-squeeze trigger. The trigger shifts a spring-loaded plunger that normally keeps a poppet-style valve closed. When the plunger is shifted, the poppet opens and water flows to the cutting head. The Ultra Lite Lance minimizes operator fatigue during vertical and overhead applications because it is easily held in a natural horizontal position. Interchangeable extension tubes and handles are available.
