Designed for grinding, honing and lapping applications, the high-performance Rush Grinding Fluid Filtration System utilizes edge filtration technology. Balanced clean and dirty fluid tank sizes ensure separation of clean and dirty fluids, even during the automatic regeneration cycle. The system can filter either oil or water to a high degree (one micron for oils and five micron for water-based fluids) with minimal customer maintenance, the company says. For use with carbide, HSS, stainless steel and other materials, the system enables reclamation of high-value materials.
Single and multiple pump configurations are available for clean fluid delivery and increased system flexibility. For dirty fluid handling, the system uses seal-less cast iron filter pumps that extend pump life.
Customized systems can be designed for specific machines and shop floor layouts. Single machine, multiple machine and centralized configurations are available. According to the company, all pneumatic and electrical controls are housed in conveniently located enclosures. Optional pre-filters remove steel swarf when filtering steel or a mix of carbide and steel. A selection of large-capacity cooling systems made specifically for oil or water is also available.
