For more than 50 years, Avure has been the global expert in applying high pressure technology to industrial and consumer goods manufacturing. We have an installed base of over 1,200 presses - more than all other high pressure competitors combined - and 98% of our presses sold since the 1960s are still in operation.
An innovator with a record of firsts
- Avure was the first company to create systems to produce synthetic diamonds, employing pressures approaching 1 million psi (7,000 MPa).
- It originated the QUINTUS ® wire wound pressure vessel and frame, considered the safest and most reliable pressure containment system ever designed.
- Avure was the first company to create commercially viable systems for high pressure removal of food borne pathogens, substantially extending the shelf life of packaged foods without chemical additives or preservatives.
A history of leadership
We trace our roots to the mid-1950s when ASEA in Sweden was among the first to commercialize the isostatic pressure technology conceived at Battelle Memorial Institute in Columbus, Ohio. Two decades later, ASEA became a part of ABB, which carried on the market development of isostatic and sheet metal forming presses. In 1999, the high pressure business unit of ABB was acquired by Flow International in the U.S. Flow spearheaded the expansion of high pressure technology into the food preservation market under the trade name of Avure. In 2005, Avure Technologies, Inc. became a privately owned, stand-alone company. Presses with all four nameplates can today be found operating successfully in manufacturing plants around the world.
