The Quantum™ (Electric Servo Pump) incorporates core “direct servo” technology that was first applied by NASA for the Space Shuttle Program by replacing old-fashioned hydraulic cylinders with new, highly compact, efficient, reliable and infinitely controllable Servo Linear Actuators.
This same style actuator is used today in many high-end machine tools and presses replacing inefficient hydraulic systems. Similarly, Quantum™ is the first water jet pump manufacturer to utilize “direct servo” technology in an ultrahigh pressure waterjet pump & has developed patented designs to integrate the core technology into the most efficient, reliable & controllable ultra-high pressure (UHP) waterjet cutting pump.
H2O Jet pumps are intensifier pumps. This technology creates pressure by pumping hydraulic oil into the intensifier to drive a hydraulic piston which, in turn, drives a smaller plunger in the water section. The size difference results in intensifying the hydraulic pressure by over 30x in the water (or other liquid) section. For example, a 3,000psi hydraulic pressure can create a 90,000psi water pressure.
Intensifier pumps are the most forgiving and dynamic solution available for creating ultrahigh-pressure in a high production environment. The swappable nature of the intensifier top-works, and available redundancy, means that these pumps will never let you down.
