When it comes to fluid filtration, metalworking operations regularly face two big challenges: rising operational costs and labor constraints. By extending coolant and tool life, while also minimizing maintenance, the right filtration system can make a positive impact on both.
For metalworking facilities, solid-liquid separation is a critical step in fluid filtration, recovery, and recycling. Paper bed filters are a cost-effective filtration technology that can filter ferrous and non-ferrous metals, as well as a range of organic and inorganic contaminants, found in many applications:
But as with any reclamation process, there are advantages and disadvantages to different filtration approaches, depending on your operational needs. The pros and cons for paper bed filters include:
Certain models of paper bed filters can remove particulate down to 5 microns, and are self-cleaning and self-monitoring, allowing for minimal maintenance. This lowers operational costs, improves fluid reclamation processes, and can extend tool life by an average of 27%.
