Save Money on Your Waterjet Spare Parts Leave a comment

Owning and operating a waterjet machine can be very expensive, while there are several factors that can affect the hourly cost of running a waterjet, on average it can cost anywhere between $20-$40 an hour. This cost does not include labor nor the capital repayment to run a waterjet with a single abrasive cutting head at 60,000 pounds per square inch (PSI).

Here’s a breakdown. of a waterjet operation cost for a 60,000 PSI (50HP) Intensifier Pump:

Orifice Size0.13
Mixing Tube0.04
Flow Rate(gpm)1.05
Cost% of Total
Garnet (Assuming $0.20/LBS) $16.0056%
Spares parts including Mixing Tube $8.6030%
Electricity $2.318%
Garnet Disposal($0.30/LBS) $1.445%
Water $0.251%
Total Cost $28.60

As shown in the breakdown, the spare parts cost is around 30% of the total operating cost. As with any piece of industrial equipment, waterjet machines require regular maintenance to keep them at peak performance. Part of the reason is that most of the waterjet OEM manufacturers sell their spares at a premium price – as that is their main source of profit. The waterjet owner, on the other hand, has to pay whatever the manufactures are asking, in order to keep their machine running under warranty.
