Kent, WA (prHWY.com) April 19, 2010 - KENT, Wash. - April 13, 2010 - Flow International Corporation (NASDAQ: FLOW) announces the launch of the Paser® 4 Ultra Component Life (UCL) abrasive waterjet cutting head. Designed by the company that invented abrasive waterjet cutting, the Paser 4 UCL improves cutting performance and lowers operating cost.

Since its introduction in 1984, the Paser line has become the most popular waterjet component package in the industry. Flow's waterjet expertise, extensive testing, and R&D have led to the latest abrasivejet enhancement -- the Paser 4 UCL cutting head with a low profile water on/off valve.

Whether the Flow pump is rated at 40,000 psi, 60,000 psi, or even at Flow's industry leading 94,000 psi, Paser 4 cutting technology delivers optimum cut quality, speed and operating efficiency. Orifice life is increased 3 to 5 times while abrasive consumption is reduced, resulting in substantial savings. Offered as an upgrade on most waterjet machines, the Paser 4 is available with a variety of orifice and mixing tube combinations to match today's common applications.

Already Flow customers have realized significant benefits as a result of the Paser 4 UCL system.

"The Paser 4 UCL cutting head is awesome - it has saved me a lot of time and money in my business," said Kevin Dexter, president, Andex Laser. "Our Flow 60ksi waterjet served as a beta site for the product. We now have 9 months and 1,400 hours of operation on the Paser 4 cutting head without opening it up for maintenance, which is tremendous."

"We are excited with the efficiency and productivity gains that our customers are experiencing," said Mark Powell, aftermarket sales and market manager. "Flow is committed to researching and developing solutions to further advance waterjet technology, providing our customers the most efficient and versatile machine tool in the world."
