TR-1 single separator for MQL and dry processes
With the TR-1 explosive dusts from dry processes or MQL can be extracted directly at the machine and separated safely
Minimum quantity lubrication (MQL)
MQL is a dry cutting or machining process that has been gaining in popularity over the past few years. Minimum quantity lubrication uses lubricants where required, at the actual cutting point or the cutting tool. Previous techniques required large quantities of cutting fluids per hour for lubricating, cooling and removing metal shavings. Fortunately, those days are behind us. MQL requires only about 50 milliliters per hour or less, a tiny fraction of the previous amounts. The advantages are clear: eliminating the flow of cutting fluids and the need for reconditioning them, as well as decreased costs for their disposal that result in overall cost savings. In addition, the working conditions improve, workplace safety is notably increased, and the impact on the environment is reduced.
But even minimum quantity lubrication produces emissions - with components of evaporated cooling lubricants, liquid particles and dust - which must be collected and separated.
TR-1 ProVent Plus
The innovative design system TR-1 ProVent Plus ensures that single separators with flameless pressure relief can be installed without a designated protective zone – even for processes with light metal dusts! The new shock pressure resistant protection shaft absorbs the shock wave and the intense heat.TR-1 ProVent Plus
