Magnetic filtration the Micromag way


Micromag should be used to remove ferrous or para-magnetic contamination from fluids. The unit is especially effective with machine tool oils & coolants.

Re-circulating magnetic particles in any machine tool especially precision grinding applications has many negative affects.

  • Pump, slide way & hydraulic seals wear prematurely

  • Oil & coolant life is massively reduced due to bacterial growth, which can be associated with foreign bodies such as metallic particles and in some cases stops the fluids from performing their critical tasks of cooling & lubricating at the cutting face.

  • Surface finish and component accuracy can also be affected along with the need to redress cutting wheels on an excessive basis, resulting in higher operating costs and reduced profit!

Many state of the art machine tools are still being supplied with sub-standard cheap-fix filtration systems which sometimes are no better than expensive strainers.

Micromag's high magnetic forces can attract even a sub-micron sized particle ensuring that even the dirtiest of fluids are thoroughly treated prior to it being used.

Micromag is available in three housing sizes 5" & 10" with 1" inlet / outlet ports and a 20" unit with 1" ports. All units are supplied with port adaptors to suit most pipe connection sizes.



How it works

The patent-pending Micromag comprises of a hard-wearing clear filter body, anodised aluminium lid and a high intensity magnetic core. The magnetic core incorporates neodymium iron boron magnetic material, or rare earth as it is more commonly known, that generates extremely high intensity magnetic fields.

Fluid enters the housing via the inlet port and is evenly distributed around the underside of the aluminium lid via radial tapered flow channels. This allows the fluid to pass down the outside of the magnetic core where any magnetic particles are attracted by the high intensity magnetic field. The fluid then passes through four return slots at the bottom of the core and up through the central return tube and out of the outlet port.

The centrally positioned magnetic core utilises a patent pending geometric magnetic circuit design. Magnets are carefully arrayed around a central magnetic flux return shield ensuring that all of the magnets' performance is utilised whilst still allowing for four fluid flow through channels. This ensures that even when the core is fully saturated with contamination, fluid flow is never affected.

The 10" bodied Micromag core can hold 2kgs of contamination before the unit requires cleaning. This allows for extended operating durations and minimises downtime resulting in uninterrupted machining. Where contamination generation is high the 20" Micromag can be utilised, which is capable of holding 4.5kgs. Where loading is extreme and machine operation is critical Micromags can be installed on a duplex set up.

The clear filter housing gives the operator a visual indication when the unit requires cleaning. Cleaning is very simple and is conducted using the supplied cleaning tool. The units can be fully cleaned and back on line within one, minute minimising downtime.

The benefits

Micromag has many benefits over more conventional forms of filtration, these being:-

  • Sub-micron filtration efficiency: if the particle is magnetic the Micromag will remove it.
  • No loss of fluid due to changing oil sodden cartridges.
  • No pressure drop, even when fully loaded with contamination.
  • No consumables required, ever! Once purchased the unit doesn't require ongoing spending. Operating costs are low.
  • No maintenance required: only operator intervention to clean.
  • Reduced environmental impact: all you're left with is metallic material which can be collected by your material supplier.
  • Capable of removing abrasives & non-magnetic material by means of heterocoagulation.
  • Reduce machine downtime, increased productivity.
  • Visual inspection of fluid being filtered.

Before you consider spending thousands of dollars on your next filtration system, consider Micromag.

Other accessories available to complement the range are housing spanners, lid mounting brackets, Viton seals & spare magnetic cores.
