Waterjet cutting: how does it work ?

Water is pressed through a nozzle with a pressure of 4 000 to 6 000 bars which results in enormouse speeds. The water exits 2 to 3 times the velocity of sound.

In order to cut hard materials an abrasive agent (garnet) is added to the water right after the nozzle.
