In metalworking and machine shops, as well as in industrial applications, removing oils, suspended solids and other types of contaminants from the coolant is an important consideration. Contamination of the coolant adds to the cost of doing business with high disposal costs, the cost of replacing the coolant, and the time needed for staff to complete the cleaning, mixing, and replacement of coolant.
A better option is to use an automated machine coolant filtration process. Manufactures of these types of systems may offer standard solutions, but they may also off custom solutions for specialized types of processes, industries, and applications.
Options to Consider
A custom machine coolant filtration system is uniquely designed to meet the needs of a specific shop or industrial application. This may include the volume of coolant that needs to be filtered, the specific types of filtration processes used, and combining the filtration with other processes for increased efficiency.
Coolant filtration can be combined with oil/water separators, step down filtration units, magnetic separators to remove chips and fine debris as well as a range of centrifuges and filters designed for specific contaminant removal. Assessing what is required in the system allows the manufacturer to engineer the customized solution to meet your filtration requirements.
Benefits to Consider
Adding either a standard or a customized machine coolant filtration system to a facility can have an amazing impact on the business’s bottom line. It is not uncommon for these systems to eliminate waste disposal costs over 85%, and to also reduce new coolant purchases by at least 50 and often up to 80%.
In most applications, the introduction of a centralized or portable filtration system for coolant provides full payment for the initial cost of the equipment in less than nine months after installation.
