DinoFilter Coolant Management System
DinoFilter Coolant Management Systems consist of one or several filter cassettes which are located in the central units.
Contaminated fluid returned from the process enters the filter tank where it is passed through the filter mesh on each cassette. Solid particulate, which cannot pass through, builds into a filter cake on the outside of the filter mesh. Clean fluid is pumped to the clean tank where it is returned to process.
Each cassette is automatically closed down at intervals to allow the filter cake to be removed before being discharged from the central plant by scraper. The filter mesh is constructed from acid proof stainless steel to provide for a long service life.
Cassettes operate independently meaning that should it be necessary to remove one for any reason the production process can continue unaffected. This makes the DinoFilter a perfect fit for full flow systems where the entire production process is reliant on 100% up-time. The number of filter cassettes in each DinoFilter is dependent upon the flow rate required in the process.

DinoFilter Grinding Application Example
The DinoFilter Coolant Management System has many applications particularly in the grinding industry. Waste from the grinding process, a mixture of wheel debris and metal particles, is carried with the coolant to the central filter unit. The separated waste is discharged automatically by the DinoFilter conveyor.
The waste is ejected as a filter cake and depending on the grinding process will appear as in the images. A de-watering system, a modified skip, can be supplied to allow coolant to be returned to the process. This will give two benefits, less coolant is wasted and the waste steam disposal is easier.
Every DinoFilter coolant management system is sized according to the number of machine tools to be connected. Overall flow rate required will determine the size of each cassette and how many will be needed according to the number of machine tools to be connected.
Sludge handling systems can be incorporated which also recovers coolant back to the process.
PLC controlled with full diagnostics.
An overhead pipework system delivers and returns coolant automatically eliminating the need to continually top up and monitor machine tool levels and dilutions.
Pipework design will allow total flexibility so that when machine tools need to be moved or replaced it is a simple matter of disconnection and re-connection without the need for pipework modification.
Our installation teams use light weight 'Mapress' which requires no hot work and produces a professional finish.
The Dinofilter is well suited to process high levels of sludge, for example grinding systems. They are usually installed 'full flow' which means the system output has to match the entire flow rate needs of a machine shop.
Each machine tool will need a Return Tank to pump coolant back to the Dinofilter. Existing individual sump systems, consisting of consumable media or hydro-cyclone systems, are removed and replaced with a single return tank to collect contaminated fluid from the process. Everything is returned to the Dinofilter for processing.
Where high pressure delivery systems are needed these can be provided locally at each machine tool as part of the new installation.
