Overview - Micromag Magnetic Filter

Low-cost, rapid payback magnetic filter

The patented, compact Micromag magnetic filter can provide major cost, quality and environmental benefits to precision machining processes such as grinding, honing, lapping, drilling and EDM applications. With a high collection capacity relative  to size it offers a fine particle collection performance with a low initial investment. Ideal for a variety of metal cutting fluids, oils, coolants and other CNC fluids, Micromag provides fine particle filtration without stripping away key properties of the fluids.  See how Micromag saved £200,000 a year on an EDM process.

Micromag offers significant benefits in comparison to traditional filtration benefits such as reduced costs on consumable filters, increased fluid life , improved product quality and significant reductions in filter and fluid disposal. We can also offer a mobile version for using off-line which is easy to move from machine to machine. High pressure rated version are also available see Micromag HP80.  

Available in 3 sizes to suit different flow rates this high performance coolant filtration or separation system significantly reduces the need for traditiotional bag filters, cartridge filters or paper band filters or other traditional cutting fluid and coolant filters. Read about some real life Micromag  success stories. 

How it Works  
Ferrous pasrticle contaminated fluid enters the inlet port where it is dispersed by the unique tapered radial flow channels. Fluid passes down the outside of the centrally mounted rare earth/Neodymium magnetic core which captures fine ferrous particles along its length, resulting in excellent filtration efficiency including the filnest of particles.

The geometry of the magnetic flux circuit means that contamination builds up in a controlled way, ensuring that the filter can never block, irrespective of how much contamination is held. Channels remain open allowing fluid to continue to flow freely.

The filtered fluid flows through the return slots located in the upper section of the magnetic core, down through the centre and clean, polished cutting fluid exits through the outlet port. The unit is cleaned simply and quickly with a purpose made cleaning tool which scrapes away the ferrous particles, A fully contaminated core can be cleaned in a matter of minutes. Only metallic or ferrous  particles are removed from the filter and these can be easily disposed. There are no dirty disposable filter media such as cartridges or bags to dispose of , clean fully functional fluids return to the machine.
