Pressure control valve for water-jet cutting machines
The patented Jet Edge Dual Pressure Valve is a remotely mounted valve that allows waterjet operators to control water pressure independently of the water jet intensifier pump. This enables operators to run a number of waterjet tables or cutting stations at various pressures. In low-pressure piercing applications, the Dual Pressure Valve can increase productivity by allowing water jet operators to reduce and raise water pressure without having to wait for the waterjet intensifier pump to drop to the lower pressure or rise to the higher pressure.
The Jet Edge Dual Pressure Valve will operate with any manufacturer's waterjet pump, cutting head, or waterjet cutting system, and is fully configurable for pressure change ratios. Connection points are standard 60,000 psi-type. The Dual Pressure Valve is pneumatically operated and must be used in conjunction with another normally closed on/off valve or cutting head.
