Filtration Unit Prevents Chip Buildup in Coolant Tank Circulation

Eastec 2019: MP Systems has launched a coolant filtration system designed to prevent chips from accumulating inside a machine tool’s coolant tank

MP Systems has launched a coolant filtration system designed to prevent chips from accumulating inside a machine tool’s coolant tank and causing coolant starvation of the flood pump and high-pressure coolant pump. The Purge system is a full-flow system that pulls coolant from the dirty side fo the coolant tank, filters it, and returns it to the clean side of the coolant tank faster than the flood and high-pressure pumps draw from it. 

The unit was developed in response to the tendency of small chips to either pass through or clog the screen separating the clean from the dirty side of a typical machine tool coolant tank. When this happens, chips accumulate, reducing coolant volume so that the flood pump starts sucking air, which can result in the triggering of a machine alarm and downtime.

  • 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.

    This shop provides a case in point of the substantial savings that can be realized with the proper coolant formulation. Rustlick Ultracut Pro, available from ITW Rocol North America, lasted twice as long in the sump than the shop’s previous coolant, leading to significant operating and maintenance cost savings.
