Abrasive Metering Systems

Precise control of the delivery of garnet to the cutting head is a critical component of any waterjet operation. A well regulated feed of garnet will result in a tighter, more cohesive cutting stream with higher edge quality and reduced garnet consumption.


Abrasive Metering Systems
  • Control exactly how much abrasive your equipment is consuming

  • Improve consistency of abrasive delivery which improves workpiece edge quality

  • Reduce the number of blockages caused by surges and fluctuations in the garnet feed

  • “Dial Up” feed rates. The adjustment enables accurate adjustment of feed rates between 0 and 2 1/2 pounds per minute

An accurately metered abrasive mixture is a critical component of any efficient Waterjet cutting operation. Precise control of the flow of garnet to the cutting head has a direct impact on garnet consumption, reduces the number of blockages caused by fluctuations in the feed rate, and also results in a better edge quality on the workpiece.

The Feedline Range gives the benefit of being able to:

  • Control exactly how much abrasive your equipment is consuming
  • Improve consistency of abrasive delivery which improves workpiece edge quality
  • Reduce the number of blockages caused by surges and fluctuations in the garnet feed
  • “Dial Up” feed rates. The adjustment enables accurate adjustment of feed rates between 0 and 2 1/2 pounds per minute
  • Quickly increase or reduce garnet feed to suit the type and thickness of material being cut

The Feedline range can be integrated with standard air connections found on most waterjet machines. The Feedline also has a built in water overflow port on the abrasive outlet to help prevent abrasive inside the hopper becoming contaminated in the event of backflush.

What others say...

“Definitely has cut our garnet consumption and we have better control of the feed rate. If we are cutting thin stuff we can cut the feed right back and turn it up for thick material.”

“Since we installed the feedline unit we have gone from two blockages a day to two in two weeks”

We can control, and know how much abrasive we’re using, - so we’re not wasting any…”
