A cyclonic coolant filtration kit substantially extends fluid life, thus reducing coolant usage and disposal costs. The system removes fine chips from the coolant before returning it to the machine tool coolant tank. This filtration extends machine, coolant and tool life, while improving overall part quality. Because no media filters are used in the filtration process, there is no cost to replace and dispose of spent filters.
Cyclonic coolant filtration kits are suitable for cleaning water soluble coolant with continual polishing. Effluent from the filter is either discharged onto a conveyor incline or set up to collect the fines and flow the coolant back to the tank. Ideal for cast iron and aluminum applications. Filtration kits can be added to a chip conveyor prior to shipping or retrofitted in the field.
