Hydrocyclone - Filter Spent Coolant without Filter Media

Dual Vortexes Separate Coolant from Solids

Replacing filter media is time-consuming and expensive. The Hydrocyclone creates ascending and descending vortexes in a cylindrical feed that separates contaminants from coolant without the use of filter media. This design results in consistent, long-term filtration.

Benefits of Filtering Coolant with a Hydrocyclone

  • Separates up to 98% of contaminants from fluid
  • No filter media to replace
  • Reduces coolant replacement frequency
  • Improves performance of grinding wheel
  • Improves finish of workpiece
  • Safe, effective and simple to operate
  • Easy to maintain
  • Improves tool life
  • Water soluble machining coolant
  • Filtration of ferrous and non-ferrous materials:
    • Carbon steel
    • Stainless steel
    • Chrome
    • Copper
    • Aluminum
    • Non-metallic materials such as glass and grinding wheel grit
