    Waterjet leaking water into the mixingchamber and clogging the system

    HI

    Am a new owner of a waterjet we bought from a wholesale agent. The machine havent been used much form us and we have
    hade som issues.

    Now most of the issues are sorted out the only thing left is.

    Our machine get clogged up where the abrasive inlet is. The machine is leaking water eather from the side of the mixing chamber or thru the mixing chamber.

    Since am pretty new to waterjet i dont understand why it gets clogged all the time.

    Is the mixing chamber worn out or what can it be?


    Thanks in advance

    Hi you may have a problem with the on off valve situated on the head, this depends on what make of machine you have.

    Hi Neil

    Thanks, I have ordered a new on off valve. I dont think its it because it happens when the machine runs. I also ordered new mixing chamber, We dont know when it was changed and it can be worn out.

    thanks i will get back next week when i know what the issue was
