MAXIEM Direct Drive Pump

With thousands installed worldwide, the MAXIEM® Direct Drive Pump is proven to provide reliable performance in any work environment. Utilizing the same variable frequency drive technology as the market-leading OMAX EnduroMAX® pump, the MAXIEM Direct Drive Pump has the flexibility to vary the motor RPM to cover both low and high pressure operation. The pump's three cylinders are coordinated to provide a smooth high pressure output flow, without significant pressure fluctuations. The cutting power of any waterjet system is not motor horsepower or even pump pressure, but nozzle horsepower, or JetPower™. The MAXIEM Direct Drive Pump, due to its high efficiency, delivers some of the highest JetPower in the industry. The pump's simple design with a minimum footprint makes it easy to install and maintain, while its eco-friendly design provides quiet and clean operation.

  1. JetPower is directly proportional to the water pressure at the nozzle times the volume flow rate of the waterjet stream.
  2. Recommended maximum orifice size. Smaller orifice sizes have a corresponding lower flow rate.
Enhanced Vfd Technology

By incorporating Variable Frequency Drive technology, the EnduroMAX pump can maximize production potential and achieve substantial energy savings by altering the speed of the motor based on demand. With the VFD, the EnduroMAX pump can operate throughout a wide range of motor RPMs, resulting in precise pressure control. Varying the speed and torque of the electric motor also means there is less wear and tear on the motor itself, as well as the pump crankcase, reducing maintenance overhead. Whether adjusting for low pressure piercing of delicate materials or dialing in pump pressure for maintenance longevity, the EnduroMAX pump with VFD technology provides the user the flexibility to adapt to their specific needs and requirements.
