Those in the metalworking and manufacturing industries know that having a high-quality coolant filtration system is a great way to improve overall operations while cutting unnecessary costs. But how do you know when a coolant filtration system is high-quality? How do you know if a filtration system will suit your needs?
Don’t worry; at EdjeTech, we know a thing or two about coolant filtration systems, and we’re here to help. Read on to learn some useful questions to ask when choosing a CNC machine coolant filtration system.
1. Does it remove particulate and free oils?
Coolant becomes contaminated with metal fines, way oils, hydraulic oils and rust inhibitors. All these contaminants cause bacteria and/or fungus growth. A system that uses coalescing media removes these particulates and free oils more efficiently, like EdjeTech’s T.O.S.S. or C.R.O.S.S., versus those systems that don’t. The EdjeTech T.O.S.S. and C.R.O.S.S. will be able to provide clean coolant to your machine’s sump or the whole shop 24/7.
2. What features does the coolant filtration system have?
Coolant filtration systems can come with a lot of options like automatic proportioners that automatically mix coolant concentrate, maintaining system levels and fluid concentration; ozone that helps with reducing bacteria and its smell; and Coolant Return Units that will provide clean fluid to the shop floor through overhead piping and drops near CNC machine cells. It is important to talk with your coolant filtration system supplier to discuss your needs.
3. How much money will it save me?
When choosing between CNC machine coolant filtration systems, find out how much money each will save you so you can choose the one that will benefit your budget the most. If you’re looking for a cost-effective option, you should consider the C.R.O.S.S. from EdjeTech, which can reduce waste disposal costs by 85% to 90%, and new fluid purchases by 45% to 80%.
If you take these three simple questions into consideration when looking for a coolant filtration system, you should have no trouble finding one that works for you.
