Revolutionary Cartridge Technology Designed for FLOW* DYNAMIC WATERJET* and DYNAMIC XD* Systems

GLENS FALLS, N.Y., July 9, 2018 — Barton International, a global leader in waterjet abrasives, has introduced the TRIDENT 4, a new, integrated diamond cutting head designed for FLOW* DYNAMIC WATERJET* and DYNAMIC XD* systems.

“The TRIDENT 4 cutting head features our revolutionary cartridge technology and is an advanced, direct replacement for FLOW* PASER*4 cutting heads — without the need for an adapter,” Barton International Product Manager Waterjet Parts Stephen Podnorszki said. “In addition to its superior accuracy and extended nozzle life, the TRIDENT 4 offers users lower operating costs while delivering improved productivity.” Podnorszki noted that the TRIDENT 4 cutting head has all the advantages of an integrated diamond design plus the versatility of a replaceable orifice. He added: “The TRIDENT 4 design creates a superior cutting head that assures perfect orifice-to-nozzle alignment, which means that the water stream is perfectly aligned to the nozzle, thus extending nozzle life and reducing costs.”

Podnorszki noted these additional TRIDENT 4 product features:

  • A diamond orifice, which ensures that stream quality remains optimized over the life of the cartridge.
  • Diamond wear resistance, which results in improved total system performance.
  • A ROCTEC 500 mixing chamber.
  • Uses an industry standard .281 x 4″ non-ringed nozzle.
  • Expanded versatility of the cutting head because the replaceable Diamond Orifice Cartridge can be swapped out for jobs requiring a different orifice size.

Podnorszki explained that the TRIDENT 4’s Short Stop Filter effectively prevents in-line contaminants from damaging the orifice assemblies by blocking debris from the most common sources within any high-pressure waterjet system. The Short Stop Filter features robust construction with a stainless-steel mesh screen filter and is easily retrofitted.

He added that the TRIDENT 4 warranty requires use of the Short Stop Filter. The Diamond Orifice Cartridge is warrantied for 500 hours when used with a Short Stop Filter assembly. TRIDENT 4 cutting heads are made in the USA and are available exclusively through Barton International.
