Eclipse Magnetics’ offline filtration system is a portable standalone unit for filtering coolants and oils. The system consists of a portable trolley, full electrical equipment, pump and the company’s Micromag filter. It is fully wired with required isolators and switch gear, and is fitted with flying cable. It is supplied with both inlet and outlet piping.

The gear pump features a 1-hp, 1,800-rpm motor and is capable of delivering 10 gpm.  Maximum pressure is 87 psi. The pump supplies contaminated fluid to the filters with a low pumping speed to ensure maximum time for cleaning operations. A 60-micron screen filter on the suction side of the pump provides protection. The main Micromag filter removes all ferrous contamination, down to sub-micron sizes in a single pass. The filter is available in 5", 10" and 20" sizes, depending on expected contamination levels.

Applications include “polishing” fluids overnight as well as tank draining and cleaning. The universal system is capable of removing moisture from neat oils, and can also be used for tank emptying to remove ferrous swarf from the fluid prior to collection for recycling. The system is said to extend the life of fluid while providing additional filtration.

  • 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.

  • Alcohol-Based Coolant Offers Environmentally Friendly Machining

    This micro-volume coolant delivery system uses ethanol as the cooling medium for non-ferrous workpieces. The ethanol evaporates after it cools the cutting tool, so no residue is left behind on machined workpieces.

  • 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.
