Cleaner oil means that it can be used for longer periods of time, therefore reducing costs.

Eclipse Magnetics has provided OSL Cutting Technologies with an AutoMag Skid magnetic filtration system to remove magnetic and para-magnetic contamination from oil used in its Walter grinding machine. Since the installation of the AutoMag Skid magnetic filter from Eclipse Magnetics, approximately 90% of swarf material has been successfully removed from the oil.

The method

The AutoMag Skid is a self-contained filtration and fluid recovery system with fully automated operation which minimizes fluid loss during cleaning. The filter holds the contamination 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 coolant roller, and the magnetic coolant roller removes the contamination from the fluid. The clean fluid is then put back into circulation, and the contamination is extracted in a form ready for disposal or recycling.
