Jorgensen Conveyors Announces It's New Line of Gravity Roll Media Filters for CNC Grinding and Metalcutting Coolant Filtration
Mequon, WI., September 1, 2004 - Jorgensen Conveyors is introducing it's new gravity roll media filtration equipment offering for CNC grinding and metal cutting applications. "For many years Jorgensen has been a leader in supplying chip conveyors and coolant filtration solutions for CNC metal cutting machine tools", says John D'Amico, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Jorgensen. "Jcrgensen now intends on providing quality filtration solutions to CNC grinding machine builders, importers and end users", says D'Amico.
Jorgensen will be unveiling its new gravity roll media filter design at IMTS this month, with a display of their new model GRMC-300 system. This is the entry level unit with a coolant flow rate capacity of 30 gallons per minute.
The system will use a deep filter cake to provide excellent filtration of grinding swarf. "We had two specific goals in designing this unit", says D'Amico. "We wanted to provide a positive seal of the filter media to eliminate fines migration around the edges of the media, and we wanted to be competitively priced." Many other competitors offer no positive seal of the filter paper according to D'Amico. "We have accomplished this with our seal wheel design approach." At the same time, D'Amico says that this unit will be priced to compete with systems that are less robust in their design.
The GRMC-300 model features a 17 inch coolant inlet height to fit under most CNC grinding machine coolant exit heights. It offers a compact footprint, an integral tank, standard control module and a removable top cover for ease of maintenance. The unit takes an industry standard 38 inch wide filter media. Jorgensen's Gravity Roll Media Filter will be on display at IMTS in their booth #D4618 in the Lakeside building at McCormick Place.
