A new 100 hp direct drive pump from OMAX Corp. offers what the company says is increased efficiency, improved reliability and lower operating costs by delivering more JetPower at the nozzle, equal to today’s 135 hp intensifier designs.
Equipped with OMAX’s EnduroMax technology, the pump features the Inline 6 design that provides smooth cutting, high reliability and easy modular maintenance, says OMAX. The addition of the 100 hp model extends the company’s line of EnduroMax pumps, which inlcudes 30 hp, 40 hp and 50 hp models.
The 100-hp pump increases efficiency by delivering 30 per cent more horsepower to the cutting nozzle, compared with a 100 hp intensifier pump. This increase in JetPower creates a more powerful abrasive stream for faster cutting speeds and higher productivity, and the improved efficiency results in less wear and tear and maintenance. The pump provides a stable jet stream up to eight times smoother than intensifier pumps, significantly reducing wear on high pressure plumbing and fittings.
The 100 hp pump also uses Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) technology that tailors power and water consumption to an application for powerful and precise cutting. With VFD technology, the 100 hp pump has increased power and water efficiency and seamless pressure control, all while eliminating inrush current and reducing maintenance.
