Flow Announces Latest Whitepaper: HyperPressure Drives Cutting Efficiency Through Waterjet Velocity

KENT, WA--(Marketwired - June 29, 2015) - Flow International Corporation, the world's leading developer and manufacturer of industrial waterjet machines for cutting applications, has released an analysis on how ultrahigh-pressure pumps drive cutting efficiency through waterjet velocity. Real world examples and explanations are available as a comprehensive whitepaper, authored by Chip Burnham, vice president for Flow. The whitepaper is available for download at www.whyvelocitymatters.com.

Burnham discusses how you can gain efficiency with a waterjet that is rated at HyperPressure levels of 94,000 psi. The following findings are highlighted by Burnham in the whitepaper:

  • Raising pressure directly translates into increased productivity due to increased jet velocity.
  • Faster waterjets provide smaller waterjet streams which move the abrasive particles faster, resulting in more material being cut with less abrasive.
  • HyperPressure delivers more efficient cutting, and that efficiency relates directly to lower part cost.

Flow has the most experience in the industry working at these high pressures, and has leveraged this experience to drive this research. More information on how HyperPressure jet velocity impacts efficiency, including video examples, and the whitepaper are available at www.whyvelocitymatters.com.
