Clean 20 water filtration system.
Every glass grinding application produces particles that enter into the recirculating coolant water loop.
When these particles circulate through the system, a number of conditions occurs that adversely affect production efficiencies.
- Coolant consumption increased
- Diamond wheel life and performance decreased
- Labour costs increase due to time spent unclogging coolant lines, removing glass from coolant tanks
- Down time when production is stopped to rectify these issues
These hidden costs can cost thousands to tens of thousands of dollars per year.
The Clean 20 is a simple, affordable, effective way to remove glass particulate from process water.
It is inexpensive to purchase, install and operate.
The Clean 20 also takes up a small foot print in size allowing it to be used in the smallest of shops or largest of plants.
The separation process is an ingenious mix of gravity and fluid dynamics with a little flocculent to speed things along.
Grinding fluid laden with glass particles flows into the unit where a dosing pump precisely meters a very small amount of flocculent into the stream. This mixture of coolant and flocculent are blended by an inline static mixer. This mixture empties into a secondary chamber for final bending and then to the main chamber in laminar flow. Laminar flow is the movement of water without turbulence. This is critical because any disturbance would impede the efficiency of the settling process. At this point, the suspended particles begin to agglomerate into small "seeds" which gradually grow into a size where they rapidly drop out of suspension into the collection cone. As this settling process continues, the weight of the agglomerated particles and water naturally apply pressure condensing the solids building in the bottom of the collection cone into a progressively denser wet mass. At a preset time, a pneumatic valve empties the solids into a porous collection bag. Subsequent discharges continue to compact the solids and squeeze our the residual water. When the bag is full and completely drained, it is off loaded for proper disposal.
