Predictive waterjet maintenance pumps
- February 28, 2019
Hypertherm has introduced HyPrecision Predictive maintenance waterjet pumps.
The new pumps, which Hypertherm says are a world’s first, feature its Advanced Intensifier Technology and new patented technologies like closed loop proportional pressure control that adjusts for pressure and temperature, oil viscosity, and hydraulic system wear parts; along with technology that enables customers to use seals up to 40 per cent longer.
For ease of use the HyPrecision Predictive pumps have features such as a colour coded junction box, electrical cable harnesses, quick disconnect fittings and an easy access bleed down valve for easier maintenance.
A clear window cover lets the operator see the intensifier and attenuator. Optional electrical interlocks prevent unauthorized access and can automatically stop the pump when opened. Finally, Seal Maintenance Technology helps keep the top deck and shop floor free of oil and water.
“In engineering this system, we worked to really understand the pain points that companies using waterjet face. Without question, the number one issue was surprise system downtime,” explains John Caron, waterjet product marketing manager. “Our new HyPrecision Predictive systems are engineered to eliminate that pain point, while delivering increased productivity and performance, improved serviceability and safety, and lower maintenance costs.”
The HyPrecision Predictive pumps are available in six models, ranging from 15 to 75 horsepower.
