A Pump for Every Application

 

There are two types of pumps used today in waterjet cutting: the linear intensifier pump and the rotary direct drive pump. Both intensifier and direct drive pumps are capable of reliably delivering ultrahigh-pressure water for heavy-duty industrial use for today's manufacturers.

Flow is the world leading manufacturer of the widest range of pump technology, from intensifier linear pumps to direct drive rotary pumps.


Rotary Direct Drive Pump

Rated up to 60,000 psi [4,150 bar]
 

The HyPlex® Prime family of direct drive pumps are energy efficient, compact, and rugged. HyPlex Prime pumps come in a wide variety of configurations designed to reliably deliver ultrahigh-pressure water to the cutting system.
