The recycling or reuse of material in production becomes as a saving task for sustainable and environmental competitive production. Sustainability means not only achieving cost efficient process but also eco efficient. The design of the abrasive recycling system is desirable because of the growing growth and development of the abrasive water jet cutting industry. The use of recycled abrasives greatly reduces production costs, and hence the price of products resulting from such processing and increases competitiveness. There is a large space for wide application of cutting technology with abrasive water jet, and thus the application of abrasive recycling. On the environmental side it is very important to have a controlled disposal of the abrasive used.
