EcoSift abrasive recycling system

Where to buy


Want to reduce your waterjet abrasive costs by up to 60%? Hypertherm’s EcoSift™ abrasive recycling system lets you capture, recycle, and reuse spent abrasive.

The idea is simple: Used abrasive is not necessarily used-up abrasive. When cutting at 4,000 bar or below, only a portion of the abrasive is pulverized. Up to 60% reaches the bottom of the tank without significantly changing shape or size; it can be reused without impacting cut quality. Because abrasives typically account for more than half of your waterjet operating costs, the more you cut, the bigger the savings!

The EcoSift abrasive recycling system adds to your bottom line in other ways, too. It reduces the storage, transport, and waste disposal costs. If you like, you can even take in other shops’ spent abrasive, or offer them a mutually profitable fee-based recycling program.

Type Waterjet systems
Product line Waterjet
Material type Mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, other (carbon fiber, glass, granite / stone / tile, foam, food, etc.)
