Now Available From Ona America New Stand Alone Filter System for All Wire EDM Machines

ONA AMERICA, Inc., Dayton, Ohio, recently announced the availability of the new AQUA PRIMA filtering system for Wire EDM. The Series AK-100 is automatic, self-cleaning, uses a mineral filter unit especially assigned for wire EDM filtration and does not require filter media replacement. Features of the new series include: o Designed for quick and easy retrofit with all Wire EDMs. o Stainless steel construction. o Large tank capacity - 330 gallons. o Clean water filtering to a 3-micron level of cleanliness. o 100% self-sufficient, stand alone system. o Automatic sludge discharge fully controlled by PLC. o Ecologically safe, does not require operator attention. o The filter uses an automatic EkoAdd metering tank that greatly reduces resin consumption. Designed to operate with all Wire EDMs, the filter unit takes dirty water from the machine and filters it to a 3-micron cleanliness level to supply clean water for machining. When the filter vessel reaches its cleaning capacity, which is detected by a pressure switch, a backwashing cycle starts and clean filtered water is supplied to the machine's dielectric tank. With this feature the machine always has a supply of clean water. When a predetermined number of programmed backwashing cycles is completed; sludge removal is initiated. Sludge is then discharged from the decanting tank into a sludge bag. An alarm is activated when the bag reaches full capacity. Controlled by a PLC control unit for the filtering operation, this new stand-alone filtering system is now available for use with any Wire EDM.
