In the process of rolling steel strip, the roll coolant becomes contaminated with ferrous particles and tramp oils. These contaminants in high enough concentrations can result in increased roll wear, reduced production, increased roll oil and water consumption, decreased coolant life and poor product quality.
The Filtertech model MSI magnetic separator utilizes a vertical bar design in which a series of magnetic bars form a chain that is driven by a rotating assembly. The bar chains are arranged in parallel to form a magnetic separation two pass grid through which the dirty coolant passes. The ferrous particles are attracted and attach to the magnetic bars, then removed from the bars by an efficient wiping system.
Entire magnetic coolant separator system packages including tanks, pumps, heat exchanger and controls can be proposed.
