Jorgensen Expands FlexFiltration Adaptability with New Flex B and C

June 12, 2023 9:04 am

MEQUON, Wis. (June 5, 2023) — Further expanding the adaptability of its industry leading FlexFiltration, Jorgensen Conveyors and Filtration has launched new Flex B and Flex C versions for that modular coolant filtration system. The Flex B uses bag filtration, while Flex C incorporates a cylindrical/hydrocyclone filter. Both versions are built on the modular FlexFiltration design and allow shops to easily adapt their filtration to changing jobs, materials and production needs.

Jorgensen’s FlexFiltration system combines pre-engineered modules to tackle difficult coolant filtration applications. Flex B, C and G systems all handle flow rates ranging from 25 to 100 gpm. They efficiently remove fine chips and grinding sludge to achieve coolant clarity down to 10 microns or less. FlexFiltration provides coolant filtration for a variety of difficult materials including cast iron, steel, aluminum, plastic and composite materials, giving end users and OEMs alike the ability to standardize their coolant filtration process on a platform that is modular and adaptable.

The Flex B and Flex C join Jorgensen’s existing Flex G gravity filter version. Flex B provides an additional disposable media option with filtration down to 10 microns for most applications. As its main filtration method, bag filters make the Flex B a cost-effective method for coolant and cutting fluid filtration and ideal for CNC machine tool applications involving either single machines or centralized coolant systems.

Jorgensen’s engineers can easily incorporate bag filters into new or pre-existing coolant systems. Doing so serves as a quick, low-cost solution for removing small chips, grinding swarf and other particulate down to 10-micron nominal.

One benefit unique to Flex C is that there is no disposable media required. As a result, Flex C systems require little to no maintenance. In operation, contaminated CNC coolant enters the cyclonic filter at a high velocity through the inlet opening. The velocity of the liquid increases as it swirls downward inside the conical separating chamber. Then, solid contaminants are thrown against the walls of the chamber and forced to the bottom by centrifugal force. These solids are then discharged through a nozzle at the bottom of the filter, achieving high separation efficiency without filter media consumption.

As the whirling cleaned liquid approaches the bottom, it is unable to exit the restricted discharge nozzle. As a result, it reverses direction, forms an inner vortex and seeks the clean liquid outlet at the top of the filter. Using this hydrocyclone filtration as its main filtration method, Flex C is economically and environmentally friendly as there are no disposable medias to worry about. Jorgensen offers hydrocyclone filters in a variety of sizes to fit the volume and desired coolant clarity.
