The nozzle is one of the indispensable parts in production. The normal use of the waterjet is inseparable from it. There are many kinds of nozzles on the market. What kind of nozzle can meet the requirements of the waterjet? What is the difference between various waterjet nozzles?
One of the nozzles commonly used on waterjets is made of stainless steel so that it can withstand the corrosive effects of air, water, and acidic substances. Due to the polishing properties of stainless steel, this will ensure that when stainless steel nozzles are manufactured, the material can be better processed and polished in order to produce a product that complies with the size of the water jet.
The gemstone nozzle is also one of the components of the waterjet. The manufacturer basically uses a synthetic ruby or sapphire to make the gemstone nozzle. Because a gem is a single crystal, its chemical composition is relatively single, so its internal molecular structure is relatively strong, and high-pressure water jets can eject better through it.
In addition, the gemstone has good thermal conductivity. When using the gemstone nozzle, there is no need to worry about the phenomenon of heat damage to components under high-strength operation, which greatly prolongs the service life of waterjet components and saves costs.
In addition, brass nozzles can also be used on water jets. Brass itself is an alloy of copper and zinc mixed. The characteristics shown are different depending on the proportion of mixed materials. The advantage of this nozzle is that it can be used to modulate the material according to different needs to achieve better cutting results.
From the above description, it can be seen that the performance requirement of the water jet on the nozzle is basically corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance and high hardness. However, there are some differences in the actual use of the nozzles of different materials, and they must be selected according to actual needs.
