Metal Cutting Vacuum Filtration
Our metal cutting vacuum filter system is a robust and tested tool used for filtration.
Filtra has developed a large product line that comes in various sizes to fit almost any solid-to-liquid separation operation.
This highly modular platform can support individual machines or in large applications. A central filtration system can support up to 60 machines running simultaneously.
Filtra-Systems' Hydro-Vac is the "original" metal cutting vacuum filter system for metalworking liquids.
Founded in 1979, our company's position as a global leader in coolant filtration means that we have installed more than 6,000 Hydro-Vac systems around the world.
As a result, companies in a wide range of industries rely on our vacuum filtration system to keep their operation running smoothly.
Having been put to the test in real-world settings thousands of times over, we always stand behind every system with a worldwide sales and service network that solves problems and stocks spare parts and filter media.
Vacuum filtration focuses on pulling your dirty effluent through a filtration medium in order to remove the solids that are trapped within the fluid.
This process is fully automated within the HydroVac to ensure no downtime or pause for cleaning or removing waste.
Automatically monitoring the fluid for key performance indicators causes the system to react to increasing efficiencies to downstream equipment.
With every filter serving a slightly different purpose, our applications engineers and system designers work with you to tailor these vacuum filtration systems to fit the specific needs of your operation.
Our laboratory can also execute preliminary testing to ensure that the right system and filter media is selected for your application.
An industry-tested product paired with world-class customization and support is what separates the Hydro-Vac from other competitors.
