Jet Edge’s 100-hp, 75-kW X-Stream xP90-100 waterjet intensifier pump supports 75-KSI (5,200 bar) continuous operating pressure. According to the company, the pump achieves much faster cutting speeds and lowers operating costs compared to traditional 60-KSI (4,100-bar) waterjet pumps, enabling users to increase productivity and reduce part costs. The X-Stream produces 50 percent more pressure than a 60-KSI (4,100-bar) intensifier pump, resulting in a 40 to 50 percent increase in productivity for many materials, as well as less water, power and abrasive usage, Jet Edge says. The pump is capable of producing flow rates of 1.45 gpm (5.49 L/min.) and supports an orifice as large as 0.017" (0.43 mm). Fittings and tubing are rated for 100 KSI (6900 bar). The X-Stream also is available in a 50-hp (37-kW) model.
