PowerDredge abrasive removal system

Cleaning out your waterjet’s abrasive tank doesn’t have to be a time-consuming, messy chore. Hypertherm’s PowerDredge™ abrasive removal system not only reduces the manual labor associated with abrasive cleanouts; it also reduces costly system downtime. And that means added profitability. The system also makes it easier to recycle used abrasive, and simplifies abrasive transport from waterjet table to disposal.

Flexible overflow option gives you extra flexibility when configuring your waterjet operational footprint, because the self-tipping hopper location isn’t dictated by a rigid PVC overflow.
