How do I calculate how much garnet I will need for my application?

Total garnet required for any waterjet cutting application is calculated by the OEM software. Orifice/nozzle configuration will determine the recommended abrasive flow rate per minute. Once abrasive flow is determined, flow rate can be multiplied by the total inches per minute to determine the required volume of garnet. The OEM software may produce a summary sheet to provide this data. Consult your waterjet OEM with any questions.
