Jorgensen EcoFilter 80 offers fine filtration

Sept. 27, 2023
Its all-new filter box configuration enables it to efficiently filter fine chips to 80-micron nominal.

EcoFilter 80 Jorgensen Conveyor and Filtration Solutions has developed what the company says is the first economical non-drum-style conveyor to offer sub-100-micron filtration. With the new conveyor, the company has improved its existing chip removal and coolant filtration design, the Jorgensen EcoFilter 200, which works with all levels of turning and machining centers and provides fine chip filtration to 200 microns. The company’s conveyors use a two-stage chip removal and filtration process that carries out large chips on a hinged or scraper belt, while fine chips are separated from the coolant in a flow-through EcoFilter cell. Clean coolant returns to the coolant tank, and filtered fines are picked up and discharged by the belt cleats.  

What’s new? The improved filtering capabilities of the EcoFilter 80. Its all-new filter box configuration enables it to efficiently filter fine chips to 80-micron nominal. 

Benefits Reduced downtime and increased pump, tooling and coolant life. Time spent cleaning the tank or performing maintenance is cut because so much less chip debris enters the cooling tank, while damage to other components is dramatically reduced because fewer chips are circulating. The EcoFilter requires no consumables, and its single-drive design cuts energy consumption. EcoFilter fits most machining centers and lathe envelopes, and all current EcoFilter-ready conveyors can be considered for an EcoFilter 80 field retrofit.
