Flow Intl. Introduces Ultrahigh-Pressure Waterjet Cleaning System

Flow International Corp. introduced the Husky, a direct-drive ultrahigh- pressure pump reportedly offering great efficiency in industrial waterjet cutting and cleaning applications. Driven by a Caterpillar diesel engine, the Husky delivers continuous operating pressure of 40,000 psi at flow rates up to 6.5 gpm. Equipped with three high pressure water outlets, the Husky is ideal for simultaneous operation of one, two or three hand tools, according to the manufacturer. It is also suitable for field abrasive waterjet cutting requirements, as well as high-flow single-tool robotic applications. The Husky incorporates a closed-loop cooling system, which cools the pump and ancillary equipment without the need for additional cooling water.

Flow Intl.also introduced the A- 3000 Ultralight, a lightweight handheld ultrahigh-pressure cleaning tool. At 11 pounds, the A-3000 Ultralight weighs one-third less than Flow's other hand-tools. Possible applications for the unit include: removing paint, rust and corrosion from offshore oil platforms; stripping materials from the inside of storage tanks; and numerous other applications which require coating removal or surface preparation.
