1st Machine Tool Accessories (1st MTA) has added Eclipse Micromag high-intensity magnetic filters to its range of engineering products and machining equipment.

Available in Micromag, Filtramag, Automag and Drimag variants, Eclipse filters incorporate rare-earth magnets that provide consistent sub-micron particle removal from all types of cutting fluid.

The design of the systems eliminates the need for costly consumables such as filter cartridges and ensures that fluid pressure is maintained, even when the unit is fully loaded with contaminants.

Unlike conventional filters, Micromag units are insensitive to particle size and do not cause cutting fluid loss in use.

A purpose-designed tool also enables material to be removed from the unit in less than 30 seconds for disposal in an environmentally friendly way.

In operation, contaminated fluid enters the filter through the inlet port and is directed down radial tapered channels.

The flow is distributed equally past the central magnetic core, where any ferrous or paramagnetic particles are retained.

Clean, filtered fluid is then directed up the centre of the magnetic core to exit the unit at the outlet port.

Micromag filters can be installed at any point in a machine tool’s fluid delivery circuit and are available in three standard sizes for flow rates of up to 150 litres per minute and maximum operating pressures of 12bar.

High-pressure models are available to accommodate flow rates of up to 600 litres per minute and 80bar pressure.

’With maintenance-free operation, no consumable costs and a service life that can be as long as 50 years, Micromag high-performance filters are an ideal method of removing the damaging particles that accelerate wear in machine-tool pumps, slideways, gears and valves,’ said Catherine Kelly, 1st MTA’s general manager.
