How It All Began

This equipment was first used in 1852 in the state of California. They were also used as a cleaning tool in the 1900s, the meantime a variety of water jets began to develop. The high-pressure ones were one of the first to be developed. It was in 1960s when the high-pressured units were used in the mining industry. The most abrasive type was first used in the 1980s.

This is time consuming and often requires a lot of money to get done. These days, the computer-controlled ones are used to spontaneously cut different materials altogether at a faster rate.

As mentioned earlier, water jets function with high-pressure steam. The steam allows an accurate finish as it emits a thin steam to cut through different surfaces. In fact, it can cut from gentle to hard materials. These include marble, granite, tissue, paper, plastic, wood, steel and many others.

The water pressures vary for every material. The typical pressure is within 20,000 to 55,000 pounds per square inch. In cleaning materials, the pressure ranges from small 1500 psi to 3500 psi units. Using water jets as cleaning materials ensure thorough cleaning. The grease, sludge, paints and even roots are quickly eliminated by means of steam pressure.
