Parker Hannifin's ProTura SB Dust Filter Provides Longevity
The ProTura SB from Parker Hannifin is a nanopleated dust collection filter designed for a variety of applications. It features a 100% synthetic base media with a nanofiber layer applied to the collection surface. The SB nanocoating is said to increase filter life when compared with filters using spunbond polyester filter media. The Protura SB is also said to enable higher efficiency and greater energy savings with lower average differential pressure over the life of the filter. The nanofiber layer in this pleated filter is durable against abrasive particulates.
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.
An add-on system for minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) combines an external pump with repeatable control over nozzle position.
Clean machining using minimum quantity lubrication has allowed Ford’s Van Dyke transmission plant to become fundamentally more efficient and effective at manufacturing six-speed automatic transmissions.
