Aluminum Rolling Filtration
This application includes companies that are engaged in flat rolling aluminum and aluminum base alloy basic shapes, such as sheet, plate, and foil. Also included is production of similar products by continuous casting. For rolled aluminum applications, coolant filtration is necessary. The hot rolling process uses a water-soluble coolant that requires continuous flat bed air-vacuum filtration to eliminate staining of the sheet. The cold rolling process uses a kerosene-based rolling oil which requires recovery by vacuum distillation to remove heavy hydrocarbon oils and greases from the oil. Complete system packages including tanks, pumps, heat exchanger and controls can be proposed.
