I get the vibe this site (ell.stackexchange.com) would help you more than the site you are on right now. – Josh Jan 14 '14 at 21:15
I think it's General Reference that "to eliminate out" is not an established "phrasal verb". – FumbleFingers Jan 15 '14 at 1:05
@FumbleFingers I think it's General Reference for people that speak the language with adequate fluency (eg, native speakers). I think the OP is not one of those people... – Josh Jan 15 '14 at 15:06
@Soylent Green: Exactly. Off Topic here, On Topic on ELL. – FumbleFingers Jan 15 '14 at 15:54

I would rephrase this as

Something is already eliminated at this cut-off.


Something is already taken out at this cut-off.


Something has already been removed at this cut-off.
