Filtration is primarily used to removed dirt/swarf from metal working fluids. Filtration has various benefits:
Type of filtration depends upon your process, finish required, fluid used and material of component being processed. Please contact us to select a suitable combination of products. We will be pleased to assist you in selecting the same.
The dirt entering the fluid primarily consists of material removed from job and particles of tool. Finer the operation, finer the particle size generated, finer is the filtration required.
Typically a grinding machine with wheel of 400 grit size requires a filtration level of 10 microns ( suitable product – Vacuum filter ) and a honing machine with a wheel grit of 1200 grit requires a 1 micron filtration to work effciently ( suitable product – Backwashable candle filter )
Sizing of filtration system depends mainly on flow,particle size generated and viscocity of fluid. Smaller the particle size larger the filtration area required. Higher the viscocity of fluid larger the filtration area required.
Sizing of any filtration system takes into consideration the fact that ‘dirt filters dirt’, hence a layer of dirt will act as a filter media and enhance efficiency of filtration.
Our technicians will collect all required data before suggesting a filtration system.
Individual systems cater to a single machine while a centralised system caters to group of machines performaing similar processes.
Centralised is always a better option when machines can be grouped together. Our teams works with your process planner to plan a layout to make this possible. We have interacted with customers right from plant design, process layout to positioning of various components at the design stage itself.
