Vomat UBF filter


The UBF vacuum belt filter from Vomat, a division of Oelheld, filters ultra-fine particles from oil and water-based coolants, such as those produced by grinding, turning, milling, drilling, honing, lapping, eroding and other machining processes.

be used for filtering various ferrous and nonferrous alloys, hard metals, disc abrasives, binders, etc., without the need of a special pre-separation system. Depending on the material to be filtered and the characteristics of the filter cake, the filter fineness is between 10 and 30 microns.”

Volume flow capacities range from 200 L/min. to 2,000 L/min. During operation, a vacuum is generated, and the system pumps suck the cooling lubricant through a high-performance filter belt to ensure continuous availability of the cleaned medium.

The disposal of machining sludge with low residual moisture is handled automatically via several filter belts. The UBF can also efficiently filter larger chips from turning or milling operations. The fully automatic belt cleaning system allows for user-friendly sludge disposal directly into transport containers. Integrated or external cooling systems can provide cooling through a compressor or with plant-provided cold water. Control accuracy is ±1.0 K.

The UBF is designed for regular on-site service by the user’s own maintenance personnel. Thanks to an integrated remote control system, the UBF can be monitored over the web by Vomat. This means a reduction of possible system failures through early detection.  


  • The Many Ways Ford Benefits from MQL

    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.

  • 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. 

  • 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.
