Case Study: Gas Engine Head Immersion / Agitation Rinse Tank
Filter on Graymills LiftKleen Immersion/Agitation Tank
INDUSTRY: Automotive Remanufacturing
APPLICATION: Gas Engine Head Immersion/Agitation Rinse Tank
PARTICULATE SEPARATED: Swarf
PROCESS EQUIPMENT: HydraKleen Filter System on Immersion/Agitation Tank
After being remachined, engine heads are immersed and agitated in Graymills LiftKleen process rinse tanks to remove swarf. In order to maintain product quality, water and chemical additive were dumped and refreshed every two days, making it an expensive operation. Further, product throughput went to zero while dumping and refreshing the process tank.
Engine heads are immersed and agitated in Graymills LiftKleen process rinse tanks, removing swarf under frequent refresh cycle to maintain product quality
EFS installed the HydraKleen® Liquid-Solid Separator in sidestream on the immersion/agitation tank, significantly extending the dump/refresh cycle. Now the plant dumps every 30 days -- not every 2 days...representing an amazing 1500% savings. Also, magnets remove swarf and machined metal filings. Product throughput is increased while maintenance and water/wastewater costs are greatly reduced. Product quality is now greatly improved at a much lower cost.
