By incorporating a cyclonic coolant filtration kit, manufacturers can substantially extend coolant life, reduce new coolant purchases, and cut coolant disposal costs. The Cyclonic coolant filtration removes fine chips from coolant being processed back to the machine tool coolant tank extending the life of expensive machines, improves overall part quality, extends coolant life and tool life. The filtration process does not use media filters eliminating the need to replace filters and the process to properly dispose of the filters.
Through many years of experience, LNS has become experts in the design and delivery of coolant systems to meet the needs of today’s modern machine tools. LNS’s in house design team utilizes the latest CAD software and manufacturing processes to incorporate various solutions for custom coolant tanks to fit your machine tool and application needs. Our design engineers can incorporate a wide variety of accessories such as high pressure coolant pumps, flood coolant pumps, coolant chillers, hydro cyclones and fine filter canisters. Our technical support team works in close proximity with our valued customers to evaluate specific needs and create detailed specifications for final product delivery.
The unique floating pick-up skims the tramp oil and coolant mix from the top of the machine sump. As the liquid moves slowly through the patented steel coalescing plates, oil droplets as small as 20 microns are separated from the coolant and rise to the top of the PhaSep unit. When the oil layer builds up sufficiently in the unit, it passes over a specially-designed weir, and is trapped away from the clean coolant. The oil can then be removed periodically through the waste oil drain. Coolant, cleaned of 99% of contaminated oils, is returned directly to the machine sump.
Every machine tool application accumulates coolant in the chip hopper. Coolant cycling through machining processes into a chip hopper is merely thrown away during chip hopper clean-out or drained prior to emptying the hopper. Chip hoppers sometimes accumulate more coolant than chips requiring clean-out before the container is entirely full of chips. Cleaning a chip hopper is a messy process, time consuming, and adds to the machining process cost.
