Full Flow Central Plant with Chips Handling
Filter your CNC machine park’s coolant in one central system.
Accustrip’s Full Flow Central Plant is connected to a number of CNC machines. This unique system ensures that all the liquid used by the machines is filtered instantly. The polluted liquid will be carried over a magnet separator. It will go through our unique patented oil separation system, which separates minimum 99 % of all tramp oil. The coolant/emulsion will pass through stainless steel filter candles, which will filter the coolant/emulsion with a fineness of 15 to 30 µm.
The filter candles are self-cleaning by means of a timer controlled back-flush; a small amount of emulsion and compressed air is directed into the filter candles, which performs a non-contact cleaning of the stainless steel filter candles. The small amount of emulsion from the back-flushing process is directed back to the band filter.
This process happens continuously on a fully automatic basis – hence the name FULL FLOW
- Longer tool edge lives
- Less machine wear
- Filtering the entire liquid continuously – full flow – unlimited volume.
- Increasing liquid (coolant and emulsion) life time
- Reduced cleaning time – a much shorter time than that required for ordinary central systems
- Much cleaner “clean sump” without sludge cake – which will reduce the number of production stops
- Reduced risk of bacteria.
- No consumption materials
- Filtering through self-cleaning stainless steel filter candles
- Improved economy
- Improved environment
Cost-saving, environmentally friendly and less maintenance
Imagine that you only need to purchase 12.000 to 15.000 liters of emulsion the first time the central facility is filled up, and again when the emulsion is changed after 2-3 years of production. The smaller volume means less cost for service and maintenance, as well as lower consumption of filter materials. At the same time, all risks for bacterial and fungal growth in the emulsion is minimized, and energy consumption for the transport and cooling of the emulsion is reduced.
Another beneficial side-effect of using an Accustrip Full Flow Central Plant is the reduced impact on the environment. An Accustrip Central Facility contains almost no moving parts and the intelligent control constantly monitors the operation of the plant. This makes service and maintenance almost superfluous and allows for a efficient and flexible production.
Filtration solutions that meet your requirements
Whether your production is processing cast iron, steel, aluminum, titanium or other materials, then Accustrip develops and deliver a central filtration system that is tailor-made to suit your needs. Our plants are modular in nature and can therefore be supplied with a variety of options, such as a magnetic separator, a cooling unit and automatic liquid filling, as well as additional pumps (either as security or to increase the capacity of the plant). All central plants are made of stainless steel (AISI 304) and are composed of standard components, which allow for easy maintenance and expansion of the plant.
