Metalworking Filtration & Fluid Transportation
The global manufacturing industry is heavily focused on metal cutting; defined by the removing of material using high-speed tooling or CNC machine cutting processes.
Typically, metal cutting includes the grinding or honing process which is cooled and lubricated with a water-soluble coolant. The water-soluble coolant requires continuous filtration to maintain a very low contaminant level.
As the global machining markets grow, manufacturers are highly competitive focusing on uptime, productivity, and reduction of scrap.
These demands can benefit from the properly designed continuous running grinding and honing filtration system which produces a filtered cutting solution that matches the same exacting expectations as your parts being produced.
A small sampling of products our clients leverage for coolant filtration systems includes engine blocks, heads, camshafts, crankshafts, gears, bearings, axles, brakes, and much, much more.
Additionally, packaged oil filtration and treatment systems are used to purify oil in transmission test and fill stands.
Central Filtration Systems
Central Filtration Systems
Central Coolant System is a remote located filter that provides multiple machines clean coolant at the desired pressure and flow.
Fluid transportation equipment is used to move dirty laden fluid from an operation to the filteration equipment.
Material processing equipment is designed to transport waste and solids within a department or facility.
Filtra Systems Offers
Metal cutting operations can require a variety of support when it comes to the treatment and delivery of clean oil or water-soluble coolant to machine specifications.
Versatile and reliable filtration equipment will help your entire manufacturing system handle almost any size application.
Fluid Transfer Equipment
Is space a constraint in your facility or department? There are many options available to install filtration equipment away from the process.
Locating filters remotely or in a regional setting offers you the use of your facilities that would normally be unused.
Fluidizing the coolant loop using fluid dispersal equipment makes this possible.
And, moving the dirt-laden oil or water-soluble coolant over a distance to a remotely located filtration system provides many safety and space-saving options.
In fact, this metalworking fluid filtration equipment can be paired with utility support skids that distribute clean cutting solutions to the machine tool at the proper flow and pressure through a high cycle valve distribution or pump boost stations.
Not all operations are wet cutting processes, but manufacturing floors still need to remain organized and have a safe organized flow of chip bins.
With most chip bins filled at your machine with conveyors, our chip dumping station provides you with a central point for operators to merge multiple chip bins into larger movable gondolas or a larger load-out system that improves your recycling efforts.
Individual Machine Filtration
From experience, clients have shared that large systems aren't always preferred.
With smaller individual systems, parts can be cut in different operations using various lubricants giving the plant floor more flexibility to move machines quickly and easily.
These smaller systems—many times—may be the perfect fit for your manufacturing model and facility.
In situations like this, Filtra presents many of the same options offered in larger systems but localized to the machine on a smaller more flexible scale.
