The Eclipse Magnetic unit, which was sold to Ridg-U-Rak, has a self-contained filtration and fluid recovery system, and is automated to minimize fluid loss during cleaning. This magnetic filtration system removes magnetic and para-magnetic contamination, down to submicron size, from coolants and lubricants.
The filter holds the contamination collected until it is released during the automated 'purge' process, which briefly diverts the filter's purged output so that fluid carries all the contamination to the buffer tank. The buffer tank then feeds the contaminated fluid to the high-intensity magnetic coolant roller, which removes the contamination from the fluid and puts clean fluid back into circulation. The contamination is extracted in a form ready for disposal or recycling.
