Central Coolant Filtration Vacuum Filter

Advantages of a Custom-Designed Coolant Filtration System

Custom coolant filtration systems can help extend the life of both water and oil based coolants. This is significant, as it keeps the system cleaner longer and results in a healthy and long-lasting system. In order for customers to remedy concerns related to certain applications, custom solutions are developed based on the needs and regulations of the industry in question. There are various forms of coolant filtration solutions including magnetic, vacuum, and gravity filters. A customized filter can include one or more of the aforementioned filter types, and provides various benefits for customers with quality control issues, such as coolant not meeting cleanliness specs, or dirty parts coming off of the cutting machine. These customized filters help the system operate at optimum pressure, temperature, and efficiency.

Coolant Filtration Solutions in Several Industries

A custom-designed coolant filter provides an efficient solution that easily integrates with industrial processes and procedures. Filtra-Systems provides such solutions, offering state of the art technology and a wide range of equipment. Our custom-designed systems are made with the greatest care and attention. At Filtra-Systems, we strive to meet our customers’ needs through a unique central system design with the use of our coolant filters to ensure CNC machines operate with the right amount of pressure, coolant concentration, and at the necessary temperature.

Eliminate the Need for Multiple Coolant Filters

Effective treatment solutions are critical for treating contaminated liquids, and play an important role in removing materials that can impair production, or even damage cutting machines. A customized system will work to ensure proper flow and ciruculation to achieve optimum cooling with evaporative components. Advanced technology now allows for more efficient systems, eliminating the need for multiple filters. Check out our central coolant filter systems here.

Customers Save by Reducing Maintenance and Operation Costs

Today’s industries are under tighter environmental restrictions, which has resulted in increasing maintenance and operational costs. Due to these rising costs, companies need to ensure that they can use their coolant and other metal cutting fluids for as long as possible.
