Magnetic Filters Remove the Finest Ferrous Particles from Coolant Fluids

The best way to keep your machinery in excellent condition and product surface finish, is to use cleaner coolant or lubricant fluids. Dirty machine coolant and lubrication can cause wear and tear to machinery and adversely affect quality of the surface finish.

The waste from mechanical processes such as grinding, milling, and cutting metals often contains fine ferrous particles. They may come in the form of tiny metal particles that are not visible to the naked eye. When mixed into the coolant, these ferrous particles can cause damage in slides and pumps, clog filters, compromise seals, or cause machinery to suffer. Internal components can also become degraded, which eventually leads to more frequent maintenance. It is also possible for particles to damage filters, and these must be replaced regularly.  See how magnetic filtration works

In today's manufacturing environment, effective filtration plays an important role. It can be challenging for conventional filters to remove fine metal particles. Magnetic Coolant Filters or CNC filters, on the contrary, are capable of fine particle filtering by using magnets that attract and remove the smallest particles. This makes the coolant cleaner as well as more efficient. Find out how our Magnetic Filters compare to traditional filters.

In addition, magnetic filtration systems protect the environment by minimising disposal of consumables such as cartridges, paper,  bags, socks etc whilst also reducing the disposal of contaminated oil, coolants, lubricants and wash solutions.

The Most Economical, Efficient Method to Increase Productivity & Minimise Downtime

Our patented magnetic filtration or magnetic separation systems are the ultimate in filtration technology. It can significantly prolong the equipment's life span by preventing ferrous particles from entering your coolant. Providing key benefits in comparison to traditional coolant filter media such as paper filters or band filters, cartridge filters, centrifuges and magnetic rollers.

Extended cutting fluid or coolant life

Reduced costs, decreased fluid disposal.

Lower consumable filter costs

Reduced media filter consumption.

Environmentally friendly

Reduces consumable filter waste, fluid disposal, "cake" or "mud" disposal and recycles ferrous waste.

Increased productivity

Reduced machine downtime, breakdowns, tool wear and inspection failures.

Improved product quality

Better surface finish - cleaner fluids enable a cleaner precision cut or grind.

Health & Safety

Reduces bacterial growth and minimises risk of abrasive swarf injuries.

Providing The Highest Quality Coolant Filter Systems

The success of advanced magnetic filtration is based on high-performance magnets and optimised fluid flow dynamics. This enables magnetic filters to remove almost 100% of ferrous contamination without the need to regularly replace consumable media filters, or having adverse effects on fluid properties.

As one of the UK's leading magnet manufacturers and magnet design experts we are perfectly plcaed to apply our expertise to optimise machine tool filtration.  

Traditional coolant filters or grinding fluid filters such as bag or band  filters typically leave ferrous particles smaller than 5-10 microns circulating in the fluid, which causes damage to equipment and finished products.

 

Giving Key Industrial Sectors A Competitive Edge

Our industrial machine coolant filters are easy to install. They are ideal  for precision metalworking machine applications, including milling, CNC, boring, broaching, turning, grinding, honing, lapping, drilling, tool cutting and steel rolling. As well as industrial parts wash systems. In terms of cost-effective and feasible solutions, our magnetic filtration is also perfectly suited in the wire EDM process

The magnetic filters we develop are widely used by industry leaders and precision components manufacturers to enhance production efficiency and protect the environment. Read our guide to safe fluid handling.
