MP Systems will display its Purge coolant filtration system designed to keep a CNC machine tool’s coolant tank filled to  maximum capacity with clean coolant. It pulls coolant from the dirty side of the coolant tank, filters it, and returns it to the clean side of the tank faster than the flood and high pressure coolant pumps draw from it. This prevents coolant starvation of the machine’s flood and high-pressure coolant pumps and keeps small chips and fines from clogging the machine tool’s nozzles, lines and screens. By keeping the coolant clean, part quality is improved and cutting tool life is extended, the company says. As a bonus, the machine’s coolant tank doesn’t need to be cleaned nearly as often.

“Cleaning a coolant tank is a nasty job that nobody wants to do,” says Systems Engineer Brian Jalbert. “It’s time consuming, and you have to shut the machine down to do it. If the machine is inside a caged cell, it’s a task that can take days. If you can eliminate this job even once, the Purge will pay for itself.”

MP Systems will also display its VR8 Variable Volume High Pressure Coolant System.
