Cone and Threaded Metal to Metal Sealing for High Pressure Tubing

While there are many ways to seal systems containing high pressure liquids and gasses, the most common method of sealing in high pressure plumbing is the use of conical metal to metal sealing. This method is particularly common in waterjet systems, both in the pump and in the plumbing carrying high pressure water from the pump outlet to the cutting

Pressure Autofrettage for Service Life Extension

The extreme water pressures used in waterjet equipment cause very large tensile (stretching) stresses at the wetted surfaces of the stainless steel high pressure parts. Repeated changes in these pressure-induced stresses from normal pump operation will eventually result in formation and growth of metal “fatigue cracks” at these same wetted surfaces, causing part failure manifested by a dripping or spraying
