FLUID POWER: Flow International Corp.’s HyPlex Hybrid Pump is designed to cut faster than any other direct drive pump on the market. Rated at 60,000 psi, the HyPlex Hybrid is the highest-pressure direct drive pump in the industry. Featuring patented PAC-V technology, the pump provides automatic pressure control, a first for direct drive pumps. It uses cone aperture technology to automatically maintain a true pressure signal, regardless of the orifice size or pressure setting, allowing users to easily switch between orifice sizes without having to change anything on the pump to accommodate the increased or decreased water flow. An exclusive new seal design makes Flow’s HyPlex Hybrid Pump the longest lasting direct drive pump on the market today, so users can reduce maintenance costs and increase their productivity.
