KMT Presents New High Pressure Pumps
The model Streamline SL-VI is an advancement and optimization of the successful Streamline SL-V pump. The Triline pump features the triplex technology and constitutes an extension of the company’s product range.

With the new pumps, KMT can offer the complete technology range concerning high pressure generation thus being able to deliver the right pump for every application.
Streamline SL-VI Intensifier Pump
With the new series of Streamline SL-VI high pressure pumps for waterjet cutting, KMT Waterjet Systems optimizes their complete range of high pressure intensifier pumps. Based on four frames in different sizes, the SL-VI series will be manufactured at three pressure ranges including different configuration levels. Starting January 2015, KMT will make the versions PLUS and STD with 30-50 hp motors available. The PRO version and further motor ratings will be presented until Q3 2015.
Depending on the application the pump is needed for, customers can choose between three pressure ranges: The PRO models cover a pressure of up to 6,200 bar and will be available in Q2 2015 (PRO 60) and Q3 2015 (PRO 125). The PLUS and STD models cover a pressure of 4,100 and 3,800 bar and will be available in Q1 2015 with a motor rating of 30-50 hp (further ratings to follow). Moreover, the pump can be individualized by choosing different configuration levels. Many new configurations are possible, starting from a pump for complete integration into an entire turnkey system to a fully equipped version for the most demanding cutting applications in an industrial environment.
Among the many optimizations compared to the previous model is the patented “Curve-on-Curve” Design of the intensifier: the optimized seal between the cylinder and the seal head allows for a longer lifetime of these components with a more robust sealing mechanism. Furthermore, KMT has globally harmonized the PLC and HMI platform used for the control of the intensifier pumps. This is especially beneficial for KMT’s business partners which operate internationally: With the SL-VI pump model, all KMT high pressure pumps worldwide will be equipped with the same controls using the same operating pattern. Particularly the service staff of KMT’s contractual partners will appreciate this improvement.
Direct Drive Pump
With the Triline high pressure pump, KMT Waterjet Systems broadens their product range by adding an alternative pump technology to their portfolio. The new pump uses an easily maintainable belt and pulley drive system for the power transmission from the motor to the fluid and the power end, has an excellent cost of ownership value and can be used as a stand-alone unit for everyday cutting needs.
The Triline high pressure pump is best used as a continuous duty water pressure generator. Compared to the intensifier technology, the pump is very energy-efficient as the oil-hydraulic primary circuit becomes obsolete. In addition it does not require a separate cooling circuit. The electric installation requirements are similar to a 30HP intensifier pump, while the pump delivers the flow rate of 40HP. Its small footprint and high efficiency factor in continuous operation make it an ideal alternative for respective continuous applications.
