- A water jet process has been developed to reduce hemispherical explosive shells to a form that can be recycled. A funnel shaped wet box was modified to hold the shells in place and contain all the explosive chips and slurry generated by the waterjet process. Size reduction was accomplished by cutting in spiral patterns starting at the center of the shell and moving outward. This method of size reduction produces less than one third the amount of waste water and requires less than one half the time to complete compared to conventional machining methods.
