When installing an abrasive waterjet cutting system, there are various factors that you will need to come to terms with to avoid complications that are otherwise sure to arise. The challenges are broad but most have a lot to do with the by-products of the activity and how to contain them. In the following paragraphs there are recommendations that you need to take so that you can avoid a bad experience when using your waterjet cutting system.
The first consideration to make is with relation to the environment. The process of waterjet cutting will yield huge amount of water that will need to be disposed or drained off. Some of the regulations of the local water agencies might not include the material that you cut. Before letting the water into the drainage system, you should check the regulations so as to avoid being on the wrong side of the law. Some of the equipment will be coated by fine dust produced in the process. It is also advisable for you to ensure that no harm can come to your equipment due to this.
As more materials are cut using the abrasive waterjet cutting system, debris and mud accumulate at the bottom of the tank. This can be accomplished in two ways. This first method is through manual shoveling of the mud and debris out of the tank. Chances are that you will take a lot of time to accomplish this tedious method. The second method is automated and easier to facilitate. In an effort to avoid breaking the law, it is still important to ensure that you material is not stated as a biohazard in the environmental regulations.
An example of peripheral systems that you can include in your setup is the abrasive suction separator system.This system is placed in accordingly and works with the tank so as to receive the materials being produced from the cutting tank. The system will then endeavor in the separation of debris from water; the water can be reused in the cutting tank. This is convenient to save water but it will also need more resources such as electricity and floor space.
An alternative cleaning system is the dredge conveyor system.This system is able to achieve lesser results as the above mentioned system but at an advantage.This system will not need any additional plumbing and lesser space and energy resources . When it comes to the use of waterjet cutting systems, the cleaning systems is of parallel significance. You will need to consider the materials you need for installation such as water and electricity.
