Vomat fine filtration systems filter to NAS 7 (3-5 microns), operate in full-flow mode and separate dirty and clean oil. At the same time, the system filters and cleans the machine. This means that the backflush cycle is initiated automatically for each individual filter element, depending on need.

The other filter elements are said to ensure a continuous clean-oil supply to the workpiece while the soiled filter element is cleaned. In addition, the wear and tear of the grinding wheel is reduced when clean coolants are being used during tool grinding. As a result, fewer abrasive particles are circulated in the coolant and the grinding tools last longer. 

The micro filtration systems are available in sizes from 70 to 960 liters/minute (18 to 254 gallons/minute) filter capacity and with add-on modules can be tailored to different plant configurations.

  • Troubleshooting Your Way Oil System

    An expensive lesson that many shops learn too late is that the automatic oil system on their CNC machine tool may not be completely automatic. Since the automatic oil system is designed to give a warning when the oil tank is empty, many machinists simply assume all is well if the alarm doesn't go off.

  • Ozone Provides Solution To Bacteria In Coolants

    Bacterial growth in metalworking fluids eventually leads to machine downtime. Furthermore, shop owners and plant managers see an increased cost of purchasing replacement fluids and the disposal of spent fluids.

  • The Case For Supplementary Fire Suppression

    Systems designed to put out fires inside machine tools can provide a level of protection that external systems such as overhead sprinklers cannot. They cost a small percentage of the investment represented by today’s CNC machines and certainly far less than repairing major damage caused by a fire.
