Eclipse Magnetics Launches New Range of Automated Filters

Autofiltrex Sub-Micron Magnetic Filtration

Eclipse Magnetics is pleased to announce the launch of the new Autofiltrex range of cost effective, automated filters. Available in 3 different sizes with features including fully automated cleaning and a magnetic reclaim unit, the Autofiltrex range is ideal for most ferrous machining applications such as grinding, honing, lapping, forming and quenching. Described as the latest generation in cost-effective, high performance filtration, the Autofiltrex was exhibited last week at EMO Exhibition in Hannover, where it received high levels of interest and great feedback.

High Performance Magnetic Filtration

Eclipse Magnetics Sales and Marketing Director Steve McAllorum said: “We were delighted to see that the Autofiltrex was a popular product on the Eclipse Magnetics stand at EMO Exhibition last week. Not only did we receive plenty of enquiries and requests for more information, we also received a good amount of orders from manufacturers looking to improve efficiencies for precision metal finishing processes. The Autofiltrex is a great example of how an investment in magnetic technologies can improve efficiency in automotive and other metal finishing operations.”

Sub-Micron Filtration Performance

The new Autofiltrex range can be fitted in-line or off-line, ensuring 24/7 “ultra-polished” fluids and delivering considerable advantages over traditional filter media. Its modular design also allows additional units to be added to accommodate increased flow rates, depending on application needs. Offering sub-micron filtration performance, the Autofiltrex range delivers cleaner fluid to the machine, therefore improving surface finish and accuracy as well as reducing expenditure on filter media.

As a “plug and play” device, minimal set up is required, and the system can be fully integrated with CNC controls for ease of use to provide 24/7 uninterrupted filtration. In addition, the option of an additional waste reclaim unit is also available to enable a fully automated system with waste disposal. The Autofiltrex is available in 3 sizes; the AF1 (no reclaim unit), the AF3, and the AF5, each occupying minimal floor space with the capacity to increase fluid life by up to 10 times.
