THIS IS AN INFORMATIONAL ALERT: Jet Edge has upgraded its standard on all new 2-quart (1.9 Liter) Attenuators, replacing the prior design. The new design directly seals the Head to the Body and eliminates the Seal wear component thus extending the service life of the Attenuator. The larger, 2-quart Attenuator is the same design as the 1-quart Attenuator but is longer to increase its capacity.
Jet Edge issues Critical, Recommended, and Informational updates through the use of Technical Bulletins. In order to keep your equipment safely operating at all times, it is strongly recommended that Critical and Recommended updates be implemented in a timely manner.

An Attenuator smooths out pulses and protects the HP water components from pressure spikes that occur while cycling your Ultra High Pressure Intensifier Pump. The Attenuator acts as a storage/buffering water receptacle providing smooth continuous water pressure to your cutting or cleaning device.
The current Attenuator utilizes a Seal between the Seal Head and Body to prevent water leakage due to pressure. Over time, this seal wears and begins to leak, requiring a full rebuild of the Attenuator.
Jet Edge has released a new, large 2-quart (1.9 Liter) Attenuator, replacing the prior design. The new design directly seals the Head to the Body and eliminates the Seal wear component thus extending the service life of the Attenuator. The larger, 2-quart Attenuator is the same design as the 1-quart Attenuator but is longer to increase its capacity.
Attenuator Upgrade Kits are available.
All Jet Edge Intensifier Pumps with 2-quart Attenuator P/N 100097CERT. Contact Parts Sales if you’re not sure which Attenuator was supplied with your Ultra High Pressure Intensifier Pump.
The proper kit is determined by the model of your Intensifier Pump. See the reference chart here to determine which kit is correct for your pump. Each kit includes a new Attenuator and other components needed to attach it to your Intensifier Pump. To view the component’s list for each Attenuator, visit our e-Commerce at http://waterjetparts.jetedge.com store and enter the Kit Number into the search field. A full schematic with service procedures will be available for viewing.
The new Attenuator does not have a separate seal, but rather the head seals directly to the body. An additional stud has been added for additional torquing. As a result, there is less relative movement between the heads and body and the attenuator does not require service to replace the seal.
