Fluid with chips drops in cavity outside a mesh drum. It moves in the drum trough fine mesh, by gravity, leaving the chips on the mesh. A scraper conveyer, wrapping the mesh drum & scraping the outside cavity, carries the chips to a bin. On the way the fluid drips back to the tank. The conveyer movement also rotates the mesh drum.
Clean fluid inside the drum is siphoned out to a clean fluid tank. From this it is pumped to the machine. Part of the pressurized fluid from pump is used to backwash the mesh drum.
Aluminum chip handling, washing fluid filtration, etc. This can be used on an individual machine or as a centralized plant.
• Seal is away from sedimented chips. No possibilities of seal getting damaged by chips.
• Seal is of lesser diameter than conventional filter drum. It is possible to machine this seal & maintain correct dimensions. Seal is flushed with clean fluid. This means the seal is more reliable to arrest fine particles.
• It is possible to pull the mesh-drum out of the system for maintenance
