Jorgensen EcoFilter Conveyor

Filtering Conveyor with Patent-Pending CleanCleat® Technology

EcoFilter® is a flexible, cost effective, self-cleaning conveyor and chip filtration system for turning and machining centers.  It easily fits existing small to midsize machining center and lathe envelopes. EcoFilter® conveyors accommodate a broad coolant flow rate range via flexible filter cell sizing. They provide efficient filtration of fine chips to 50-micron nominal, resulting in improved part finish and accuracy. EcoFilter makes a great initial filtration option and integrates well with FlexFiltration systems.

How it Works
  1. Chips and coolant enter the conveyor’s load section.
  2. A hinged or scraper belt carries out large chips and/or stringers
  3. Coolant and fine chips flow to the section in between the runs of belt, where the EcoFilter® cell is located.
  4. The filter cell separates fine chips from coolant. Filtered coolant flows from the inside of the filter cell, out of the side of the conveyor, and into the coolant tank.
  5. Brushes continuously wipe fine chips from the surface of the filtration cell, keeping the cell clean for coolant to pass through.
  6. Small chips exit between the runs of belt through the bottom run via patent-pending CleanCleat® system, to the bottom of the conveyor casing.
  7. Fines that migrate to the bottom of the casing are scraped up to the top run of belt and discharged.

Jorgensen’s standard hinged steel belt “EcoFilter®-Ready” conveyors can convert to an EcoFilter® with a simple field retrofit kit within an estimated 4 hours.
