Original Press Release:
Plugging of Coolant Delivery Lines Prevented by Filters with Cleanable Elements
Coolant delivery systems that direct the coolant under pressure precisely to the working area, such as through-the-tool and through-the-spindle coolant, are susceptible to plugging by chips and fines in the coolant, resulting in tool breakage and unscheduled machine shutdowns. These problems are eliminated simply and inexpensively by installing cartridge filters with permanent cleanable filter elements from Keller Products, Inc. in the coolant delivery lines. The Keller in-line filters for coolant, easily installed in the shop, have stainless steel housings and the Keller unique washable plastic filter elements which never need replacement. Compared to a conventional disposable filter element, the Keller permanent cleanable filter element has a much higher flow rate at low pressure drop. When cleaning is required, the all-plastic element can be cleaned in a bucket of water, by washing with a hose, or in a parts cleaner using any shop cleaning agent or solvent. In one typical application on a vertical machining center with a coolant line supplying through-the-tool coolant and five coolant nozzles, the Keller XS075-2130 filter assembly completely eliminated the plugging of the coolant lines, which had previously caused unscheduled shutdowns of the machine tool every two weeks and required 3 to 4 man-hours to clean the lines. Keller supplies coolant filter assemblies with permanent filter elements in line sizes from 3/4" to 2" for flow rates as high as 150 gallons per minute.
