KNOLL : Superfine Filter MicroPur®

 

The MicroPur® is a backflush filter for separating superfine impurities from oils. The ideal area of application is tool grinding of hard metal and HSS. In addition to standardised plants for single or several machines, KNOLL offers individual central plants for entire fields of production. Because of its ability to recover valuable raw materials without filter aids, its low power consumption and its low maintenance costs, the filter is particularly economical.

Features of the MicroPur® Filter

  • High filter fineness (1-3 µm)
  • Fast and effective regeneration cycle, low backflush volume
  • Energy-efficient backflush without air
  • Easy to maintain thanks to good accessibility and fast replacement of filter cartridges
  • Inexpensive, back-flushable filter cartridges
  • Energy-efficient, demand-controlled pump control
  • Flexible modular system requiring minimal space

Filtration Concept

The filter pump delivers the cooling lubricants tangentially into the filter bowls. Centrifugal force causes larger solids to accumulate already on the housing wall. Then the fluid flows through the filter cartridges from the outside inwards and reaches the filtered coolant tank in the form of filtrate. A filter cake (concentrate) forms on the surface of the filter cartridge; this filter cake supports microfiltration like an additional deep-bed filter.

Regeneration

The growing filter cake causes a reduction in the volumetric flow or an increase in the pressure differential at the filter cartridge. The regeneration phase starts in response to pressure or time control: The feed valve closes and the drain valve opens. The flush pump conveys for a short time the filtered fluid from the inside outwards through the filter cartridge. This dissolves the filter cake and flushes the particles into the drain tank. The fluid is further concentrated by a downstream facility for sludge preparation.

KNOLL : Compact Filters KF

 

KNOLL compact filters KF are Belt Filters used for cleaning of coolant and lubricants in machining processes

  • Used as stand-alone cleaning unit or combined with chip conveyors (e.g. in machining centres)
  • Use in Local (for one machine tool) or Central (for several machine tools) is also possible

Function of the Filtration Process

1. Contaminated liquid flows from the side through the inlet box into the filter trough
2. The filter fleece holds back the contaminant particles during streaming
3. The contaminant particles form a filter cake, which separates even tiny dirt particles
4. The filtered fluid collects in the clean tank

Filter Belt Regeneration

1. The growing filter cakes increase the flow resistance
2. The fluid level in the filter trough increases
3. The belt drive switches on at a defined level  alternatively: time-controlled)
4. The carrier belt transports a piece of clean filter fleece to the filter surface
5. The fluid level decreases again
6. A sludge container or a winding unit (option) takes up the dirty filter fleece

KURT CarvLock® CTHDL Manual Cluster Towers


Kurt® Workholding’s CarvLock® CTHDL manual cluster towers are designed for use with mid-size and larger CNC machining centers, including horizontal and vertical machining centers with a fourth axis and/or indexable tables. These manually operated, eight station vise towers are capable of producing up to 7,460 lbs. of clamping force at just 70 ft-lbs. of torque. They provide exceptional workpiece immobility while dampening cutter-induced vibration. Ductile iron column construction ensures strength, rigidity, and long term accuracy.

A self-adjusting holding block on either the front jaw or back jaw allows for easy clamping of same or differently-sized parts. To provide faster operation, an adjustable pre-load feature reduces the number of handle turns required for opening and closing the clamping stations.

With eighteen CTHDL models available, with 4” or 6” jaws, it’s easy to find the right manual cluster tower for your unique workholding needs. Order the CarvLock® CTHDL cluster tower your application requires, or contact Kurt Workholding for more information.

See individual product listings for additional information and specifications. All models are protected by Kurt’s Lifetime Iron Clad Warranty.
