An important question that our technical support team gets asked quite often:
Q: What are some of the factors to consider when testing the water quality for a waterjet system?
A: There are three main things to consider in the quality of the water that your waterjet cutting system uses. The Ph level, the Silica content, and the Total Dissolved Solids(TDS). The Ph level should be between 6 to 8 ideally. We also consider a TDS count of less than 100ppm to be good. You should always have your water tested...
If you do need some sort of filtration system to improve your water quality some of the common remedies are deionizing tanks, reverse osmosis, and water softeners. Typically a water softener is enough for most applications.
