Grinding Oil Filtration

Series FC-300 Rush Grinding Fluid Filtration Systems


The Rush FC-300 series Grinding Fluid Filtration Systems filter grinding oils to a 1-micron particle size using edge filtration technology. Designed to integrate with most grinding, lapping, and honing machines in use today, the Rush FC-300 systems provide continuous filtration automatic backflush, and clean fluid on demand to your machines. These automatic systems eliminate the need to change cartridge filters or clean settling tanks.

An optional cooling system can be incorporated to ensure a consistent grinding oil temperature.

The oil filtration systems incorporate one or more filter vessels, each containing 61 filter elements. Each element has approximately 9,000 special paper discs held together under spring compression. Oil is pumped through the element, with all particles over 1-micron in size being trapped on the outside edge of the discs.
