Where does the main cost of water jet come from?

Water jet is a very prominent cutting equipment in the cutting industry. From the perspective of technical characteristics and production capacity, water jet is more advantageous than other cutting methods. The water cutting method not only does not generate heat, but also does not generate harmful gases. It is a typical high-efficiency, multi-functional cold cutting processing method.
In this cold processing process, the supersonic water jet produced by the water jet can achieve the desired effect when it is shot on the surface of the cutting material. The mixing of water and sand further enhances its cutting ability. In addition, water cutting technology can effectively reduce costs to create greater profits.

The main cost of water jets is mainly reflected in water, electricity, abrasives, equipment wearing parts, equipment maintenance, and artificial sites. The water consumption during the use of the water jet depends on the pressure and flow of the equipment, and the level of the water fee depends on the local market price; the consumption of electricity depends on the power of the overall operation of the equipment.

At present, the abrasives used by all water jets are basically garnet sand or emery. The price will fluctuate according to the quality of the sand and the cutting ability; the consumables of the vulnerable parts of the equipment depend on the pressure of the long-term use, and the cutting process. Material type, thickness and processing requirements, daily start-up time, type, quantity, price of equipment wearing parts, etc.

Regular maintenance of the water jet equipment also requires cost, the replacement of the water jet control system, cutting platform, high-pressure generator and parts for the sand tank. In addition, water jets need to be provided by manpower and venues before they can be used normally.
