The remotely mounted, dual-pressure valve from Jet Edge enables operators to run multiple waterjet tables at various pressures simultaneously with a single pump. Operators can perform low-pressure piercing operations without waiting for the pump to raise or lower to the desired pressure. This saves time and reduces wear and tear on pump components.
According to the company, the valve operates with virtually any manufacturer’s pump, cutting head or waterjet cutting system, and it is fully configurable for pressure-change ratios. The valve features standard 60,000-psi connection points. It is pneumatically operated and must be used in conjunction with another normally closed on/off valve.
