Jet Edge Mobile Waterjet Cutters Helped Stop 1991 Kuwait Oil Fires

Can you believe it's been 24 years since the Kuwait oil fires?

Jet Edge, a very young company at the time, helped put out the fires by supplying mobile waterjet cutting equipment that was used to cut off the mangled well heads so they could be capped.

To this day, waterjets are considered the ideal cold cutting method for oil industry applications as they cut without heat or flames.  Portable waterjet cutting systems are commonly used to cut pipelines and to cut petroleum storage tank door sheets and floors.  They can even be used underwater.
