UHP WATER JET TECHNOLOGY EXPLAINED
Chukar Waterjet’s Deepwater Subsea waterjet skid pressurizes sea water up to 55KPSI (3800 bar) with a hydraulic waterjet intensifier pump. In underwater cutting applications, an abrasive slurry is typically added to the water stream, creating an abrasive water jet (abrasivejet) capable of cutting virtually any material, including steel up to 250 mm thick. Water-only waterjets can be used underwater cleaning applications or for cutting soft materials. Methanol can be used instead of seawater for hydrate remediation applications.
