Preventing Ferrous Material Buildup In Coolant

Ferrous material buildup can be a concern because it can have a negative effect on both your coolant filtration systems and also the quality of products that you produced. Ferrous buildup can seriously damage your cutting tools and have a negative effect on the cleanliness and quality of your finished parts.

Bag filter systems can help you eliminate this unwanted material within your operations, and many companies across various industries are taking steps to eliminate these problems.

Additionally, magnetic inserts are beneficial to companies that use bag filters in their operations.

These magnetic inserts increase the lifespan of bag filters and also increase effectiveness by preventing the buildup of ferrous material.

Typically a bag filter system removes material from the coolant by the bag alone. Bags, however, have a limit to the size of the particles they can remove. Bags that are sized too tightly will have a negative effect by removing coolant additives in addition to the intended waste. This will also cause them to prematurely blind, increasing the necessary budget for bags.

Magnetic bars are much more effective in this regard as they are able to remove sub-micron magnetic particles that would otherwise pass through the pores of the bag, and limit the overall mass of particulate that even reaches the bag.

Flux should be low so that the fluid has the greatest possible contact time with the magnets. The bag filter system should always operate with a laminar flow in order to maximize fluid contact time with the magnetic bar.

Filtra-Systems bag filter systems that don’t use magnetic bars rely strictly on the bag to filter out ferrous material. Therefore, bags have to be replaced by workers when they have reached the end of their useful life.

Magnetic inserts increase the longevity of the bags by removing particulate before it even contacts the bag. Since the bags are removing less material (because it is being captured by the magnets), they last longer and their lifespan is dramatically increased.

Selecting The Right Bag Filter Media

When it comes to selecting the right bag and cartridge filter media, there are a few options to fit your needs. Nylon bags are mostly used to filter solvent, and in other applications where porous filters are needed. Nylon monofilament mesh filter bags are welded with nylon monofilament plain weave fabric. This nylon mesh filter material provides a fixed aperture and constant filtration efficiency. There are a variety of pore sizes available, between 100 and 425 micron.

If you are looking for extraordinary adsorption properties for organic chemical compounds, activated carbon filter bags would be your best bet. Typically, these bag and cartridge filters are used for removal of trace amounts of organics, color, or odors from hazardous waste water streams.

The most economical filter material are the needle felt filter bags. They are made from the most cost effective disposable filter material available. These are often used for low and medium viscosity liquids. There is a wide variety of filter ratings available, and materials offered are polypropylene and polyester.

If you need to remove oil and other impurities from water or wastewater in industrial applications, our high-efficiency oil absorption filter bags may be for you. They are made from melt-blown polypropylene fiber, which has a large oil-absorbing filter area, and excellent absorption capability. Additionally, it is acid proof, alkaline proof, and resistant to tearing. These efficient oil bag filters have multiple layers, which gives them over 90% removal efficiency, and a high oil holding capacity.

Single Bag Versus Multi-Bag Filter Housings

Choosing whether a single bag filter or a multi-bag filter is best for your specific need is a common question.

If you’re looking for higher flow rates and less frequent bag changes, a multi-bag filter housing may be the best option. Multi-bag filter housings provide a fast turnaround. Spring balanced lid and swing bolts make bag changes fast and efficient. Our compression style bag clamps guarantee bag sealing.

Multiple bags also means higher flow rates and less downtime for bag changes, so you’re not spending your day and dollars with unnecessary tasks.

The ergonomic design provides a low profile for easier access, and the spring-balanced lid can be opened single-handedly. A highly convenient feature of the multi-bag filter housings is that they accept both industry standard #2 bags and pleated cartridges. It also allows alternate inlet and outlet flange placement, and orientation can be specified.

However, a multi-bag filter housing may not always be necessary.

Filtra-Systems single bag filter housings can serve a variety of purposes as well.

What are some of the advantages of a single bag filter housing? First of all, price. These filters are economically designed. Second, the simple design has been perfected over four decades helps the single bag filter to be efficient and effective regardless of your budget.

No tools are required to change bags. V-Clamp cover closures make changing bags fast and easy, so you aren’t spending your time on these tasks.

Vessel housings are electropolished stainless steel and are incredibly easy to clean and maintain. Like the multi-bag options, the single bag filter housings also take standard or pleated bags.

Choosing the proper bag and cartridge filter can be complicated, so when you have questions about bag filter housings or cartridge filter housings, contact our team of experienced applications engineers, who will review your process and make a recommendation.

Common Industrial Applications Of High Flow Water Filters

Filtra-Systems is an innovative company that is dedicated to providing solutions for our customers and their industries. We specialize in industrial water treatment and water processing solutions. We offer a variety of solutions for your company’s needs in order to minimize the need for multiple technologies, reduce operating costs and positively impact the environment.

At Filtra-Systems, we offer different industrial water treatment options depending on your needs. Our high flow water filters are optimal for water processing in different industries. Our river protection filter is designed to handle large amounts of water to be discharged to fish-bearing rivers. The river protection filters uses our STiR technology for highly efficient results.

The high-flow water filter was tested in the Bow River, which receives 4700 gallons/day of waste water (which includes fish waste, suspended solids, fish food, etc.) from the Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery (which raises about 3 million fish yearly). The STiR filter was evaluated to see if it would effectively remove waste material from the discharge stream. The results of the three week evaluation period exceed our expectations, and showed that the STiR filter would be able to reduce the total discharge to less than 22 kg/day (the plant’s discharge limit).

Our results concluded that the STiR filter could reduce the amount of solids by a factor of 10. A single STiR filter was used to achieve this reduction. The plant now is in environmental compliance, and protects the water from pollution.

Our STiR filter is unlike any other water processing filter offered on the market. We take pride in our highly-engineered, customized technology that sets new standards for products to follow. Read more about the STiR technology and the benefits it provides your company here.
