Industrial Duty Pumps & Accessories for High-Pressure Water Deburring Applications
The use of High-Pressure Water Deburring (HPWD) is growing in the metalworking and automotive industries due to its effectiveness and environmental impact. HPWD systems operate in the 5,000 - 15,000 psi range, with the majority at 5,000 - 7,500 psi.
Using the impact force from a high-velocity water jet, HPWD knocks away chips, debris and burrs from a machined surface. A water-based solution is used and typically includes a water conditioner that improves lubricity and prevents oxidation.
There are several advantages to using HPWD over conventional deburring. The parts are totally clean and residue-free after the HPWD process. The process is environmentally friendly and results are of consistent quality. Materials most suitable for HPWD are “soft” metals such as aluminum, cast iron, and materials of lower tensile strength. High-pressure water deburring machines run continuously and require dependable components to avoid costly breakdowns.
