When it comes to water jet cutting, the quality of water used plays an important role. The very first hurdle in water quality is to filter out all impurities before it reaches the high-pressure line or cutting head. These impurities are measured in parts per million, or ppm, and consist of dissolved and suspended solids.
Waterjet machine operators are as important to the productivity of a facility as the equipment that they handle. As such, it is critical that they stay on top of everything that they need to know to make sure that the full power of the machine is harnessed every time it is run through an operation.
