The cellulose filter media promotes cake filtration, which the company says is the most economical way of filtering and removing the finest particulate from various metalworking fluids. Hydrofiber is compatible in many pressure filter styles such as candles, discs or plate constructions. It rapidly mixes to form a slurry for uniform distribution and can be mixed with removed contaminate for multiple disposal options.
Hydrofiber is suitable for use in vacuum filtration on filter drums, screens and removable vacuum elements such as HydroFlow STAR Filter Systems. It improves filter clarity and performance for rolled media vacuums and pressure filters.
The filter media can also aids in the recovery of precious metals with low ash content upon incineration. It will not cause damage to pumps, valves or equipment.
Typical Hydrofiber applications include CBN grinding on various oils, steel carbide, Inconel, cast iron and aluminum grinding on oil and water-soluble coolants, honing, super-abrasives, lapping, polishing and burnishing processes, ceramic and glass grinding and polishing, component and parts washing and wastewater effluents.
