Eclipse Magnetics’ Micromag HP50 magnetic filter is designed to provide a cost-effective solution for applications ranging to 50-bar fluid pressure. The filter is designed to eliminate common coolant and lubricant circulation problems on machine tools and wash systems. Ferrous particles produced during machining processes, such as grinding, milling and drilling, can cause poor surface finish, drill burning, filter blockages and tool breakages, the company says. These issues can lead to increased operating costs, downtime and project rejects.
A high-intensity magnetic core extracts sub-micron size ferrous particles to protect parts and equipment from abrasive damage. In addition, it reduces expenditure on consumable items such as barrier filters. The filter’s high-quality, stainless steel construction enables the unit to be cleaned in minutes, the company says.
