Quantum NXT 55 Dual – Electric Servo Pump (55,000psi)
The TECHNI Waterjet™ Quantum NXT™ is by far the most efficient water jet pump available on the market, delivering real efficiency gains and real savings. Direct drive crankshaft waterjet pumps have traditionally been marketed for their efficiency, however, they are only efficient while the cutting head is open and the full capacity of the pump is being used. When the head closes while the material is being loaded, unloaded, and re-loaded, or while the machine positions for the next cut, almost all of the energy is directed over a relief valve, literally sending power, water and money down the drain. Intensifier water jet pumps are inherently less efficient due to the power required to simply run the hydraulic system. They also use a large percentage of their power regardless whether cutting or idle, as the hydraulic oil is passed over a relief valve in the hydraulic system. The Quantum NXT™ only ever uses the power required for the cutting process. This means that regardless of whether the cutting head is open or closed, or the pressure or flow is reduced, there are no additional power losses.
