A Pump for Every Application
There are two types of pumps used today for 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 in today’s manufacturing environment. Unlike the competition, Flow expands it’s portfolio by offering both types of pumps resulting in 1000+ sizes and configurations to offer customers.
- Rotary Direct Drive Pump
Rated up to 60,000 psi
The direct drive pump offers energy efficient, compact, and rugged design in a variety of configurations.
- Linear Intensifier Pump
Rated from 40,000 psi to 94,000 psi
Flow’s intensifier pumps are the most technologically advanced ultrahigh-pressure pumps and are dependable and proven to deliver ultrahigh-pressure where you need it.
