The Autofiltrex magnetic filter or coolant separator is the latest in market-leading magnetic filtration technology. , ensuring a 24/7 clean machine tool fluids. With an integral waste reclaim and fluid recovery system it operates with minimal user intervention. Ideal for CNC filtration, grinding, honing, lapping, wash solution and steel quenching filtration applications, it's fine particle extraction performance provides huge cost savings in fluids and filter consumables.
The high performance magnetic cores extract even the finest of ferrous particles without stripping any essential additives from the cutting fluid or solutions.
Autofiltrex works by taking dirty fluid from the holding tank and delivering clean polished fluid to the tool/workpiece contact point. As fluid flows through the Autofiltrex cylinder, high-intensity magnetic circuits extract fine ferrous contamination particles. When the magnets reach saturation point, a timed automated purging process lifts the magnetic cores from the housing thereby releasing contamination.
This is simultaneously diverted via a 3-way valve to the reclaim unit (or when using AF1 to a purge or holding tank. The dirty coolant or cutting fluid is thereby exposed to a magnetic reclaim which separates the ferrous contamination into a recyclable waste and returns any surplus clean fluid back the tank. The unit can be set to purge at timed intervals or be manually executed. * AF1 unit is not supplied with a reclaim unit.
