Dr. Mohamed Hashish
Senior Vice President of Technology of Flow International
Corporation will present: “The Science of Waterjet Cutting”
Dr. Hashish is Senior Vice President Technology at Flow International Corporation. He graduated from the Mechanical Engineering Department, Alexandria University, Egypt, in 1970 and obtained his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Concordia University in 1977.In 1980, Dr. Hashish invented the abrasive waterjet process, which revolutionized the water jet cutting technology for cutting any material. He continued to work on this technology until today.
Dr. Hashish also serves as an affiliate professor at the University of Washington. He has published over 300 papers and 40 patents in the areas of waterjet, Tribology, and high pressure technology.
Professor Bert Geerken
Dean Department Civil Engineering and Geosciences,
Delft University of Technology will present: ‘Cutting Edge Watertechnology’
After his MSc (Physics, Un Twente) and PhD (Physics, Free University Amsterdam) Bert Geerken worked in various managerial and board positions in academia, the national railways and a museum.
In 2000 he joined the National Science Foundation (NWO) as Director Organisation & Planning, in 2008 he became director of Naturalis, the National Centre for Biodiversity and since end of 2011 he is dean of the faculty Civil Engineering and Geosciences of Delft University of Technology.
BHR Group will be demonstrate their high pressure water cutting system.
CoolFire is a new and innovative modular lightweight rapid response tool with the ability to quicklycool and suppress fires using minimal water. CoolFire’s patented system allows fire fighters to safely attack a fire from outside a building, structure or container by using a 300 bar water/abrasive mix to punch a small hole through the wall and then to introduce a cooling mist of atomised water at the rate of 30-60 litres per minute.
