PROBABLY THE UK's LARGEST WATERJET PROFILE CUTTING SERVICE

WITH 5 PURE WATER AND 5 ABRASIVE CUTTING MACHINES



The Water Jet Cutting Company


Water Jet Cutting is a division of Gee Graphite Ltd, a company founded in 1989 to offer a range of industrial gasket and sealing products based on expanded flexible graphite. It was through the difficulties posed in cutting composite graphite materials that a more radical and innovative approach had to be considered. This led to the installation in 1991 of the UK’s first Water Jet Cutting system. 

Gee Graphite realised the capabilities and potential of water jet cutting and a separate division offering customers a sub-contract service was set up.

Since then Water Jet Cutting has grown substantially and now operates from a 62,000 Sq.ft site in Ravensthorpe, Dewsbury, West Yorkshire offering both abrasive and pure water cutting from 10 machines both single and multi-head configuration, giving the largest capacity in the UK. 



What is Water Jet Cutting?


There are two options to the process.

Pure Water

Pressurise water to 60,000 psi (3,600 bar) then project it through an orifice. This creates a significant amount of energy concentrated in a narrow jet of water, travelling at close to the speed of sound. The result is an extremely powerful and a precise ‘Pure Water’ cutting tool.

Abrasive Cutting

The ‘Abrasive’ system employs the same methods as ‘Pure Water’ however; the addition of an abrasive garnet mixed into the stream increases the cutting force significantly. When the high-velocity water exits the orifice it creates a vacuum within the mixing chamber. The vacuum pulls abrasive from the abrasive line into the chamber where it is mixed with the water jet stream. The resulting mixture is then realigned in a focusing tube before exiting the cutting head nozzle. At this point the accelerated abrasive particles are now travelling at speeds fast enough to cut through the hardest of materials, all this is achieved by a water jet that is little more than 0.8mm in diameter.
