Water Quality for Waterjet Cutting
Posted by Matt Hayes on
Technical water, as used for high-pressure pumps in waterjet cutting, differs in some components from tap water that has been treated as drinking water. Among those harmful to the high-pressure range are gases such as CO2 or oxygen, and above all dissolved solids such as calcium, manganese, iron or silicate compounds.
If the concentrations of these water components are too high, these substances can sometimes no longer be kept in solution under pressure and precipitate.
As a result, damage to the HP components in the high-pressure system is caused by mechanical and corrosive effects or cavitation, as well as damage to the cutting head by the "bombardment" of silicate crystals.
