Coolant Filtering System

The VacuFilter coolant cleaning system is suitable for use with virtually all types of cutting fluids and lubricants and can be used in general-purpose machining operations. It is ideally efficient for applications such as grinding, honing, lapping and polishing, gun drilling and parts washing where fine particulate separation is required. The VacuFilter is a compact system that can be installed on the floor or as a pit mount, and works with single machine tools or multiple machines with the assistance of auxiliary pump backs.

The VacuFilter is a compact system that can be installed on the floor or as a pit mount, and works with single machine tools or multiple machines with the assistance of auxiliary pump backs. In operation, the unit draws contaminated fluids through a filter media that is supported by a septum plate to capture the solids. A simple drag conveyor is used to pull and elevate the media, with its netted sludge and particulates, to a discharge area for disposal. Indexing of the media is actuated automatically via a sensor that monitors the vacuum box pressure, i.e., as the pressure differential between the clean coolant side and contaminated side increases because of particulate buildup on the filter media and reaches a predetermined level, a signal is sent to the VacuFilter control unit to initiate an index. Importantly, during an index cycle, there is no interruption of coolant/lubricant flow to the machine tool, the process or the workpiece tooling.
