Glass Grinding Coolant Filtration—Make It or Break It

Glass Grinding Coolant Filtration

Good glass-grinding coolant filtration can make–or break–a glass fabricator. There’s nothing else in your process that touches every single piece of glass that goes down every single line. It’s the lifeblood of your process. Properly filtering your glass-grinding coolant makes everything easier: a cleaner process, cleaner machines, cleaner tools, the right coolant flow and pressure delivered at each operation.

When that filtration bogs down, you get a dirty process, dirty machines, unpredictable belt and tool wear, poor edge quality, inconsistent results, and piles of rejects.

Industrial Glass Grinding FluidMany glass grinders still rely on settling tanks to separate swarf from their coolant. But settling tanks don’t perform: They’re slow, they take up too much floor space, and they demand chemistry that is a struggle to keep balanced under real-world conditions. Cartridge-type filters, indexing paper, and filter presses outperform settling tanks. But they generate a great deal of extra maintenance labor and increase your overall waste stream. In the end, you still aren’t seeing all of the benefits–and savings–you could.

In general, a centrifuge-based fluid filtration solution will outperform other options: lower maintenance, more consistent performance, no disposable media to monitor and replace. But centrifuges can be intimidating.

Trucent’s CentraSep S Series centrifuges have been applied to glass grinding coolant filtration challenges for more than two decades. With installations in 18 countries and counting, our engineers have established the global best practices favored by leading glass fabrication facilities.

Guided by Process, Dedicated to Service

Every glass grinder is unique. That’s why Trucent is guided by a process-oriented approach. We bring together people who understand equipment, people who understand fluid separation at a fundamental level, people who understand your fluids, and people who understand the glass-grinding industry. They walk your entire process and work with your team to find the right intervention, use the right technology, and match it to the proper application.

If you already have a centrifuge in place, we can help improve your operation further. Trucent’s Centrifuge Parts and Repair team will refurbish, repair, maintain, and program all makes and models of disc stack centrifuges.

Fluid Management Service for Industrial FluidsService has been the backbone of our business for decades. We don’t just sell equipment. We’ll get you up and running, train your team, and support you with centrifuge parts, maintenance, and service packages on an ongoing basis. We can even go a step further: We can install a team in your plant to run and manage all your fluids and filtration technology. Your in-house Trucent team will handle coolant buying then monitor and maintain those fluids at appropriate levels and concentrations for your applications. When fluids are spent, we dispose of the fluid with minimal negative impact to your business and our world.

No one else offers this level of comprehensive glass-grinding coolant service.

Every solution begins with a conversation. Contact us today. We can schedule a free, no-obligation on-site consultation, or simply begin to discuss how to best meet your glass-grinding coolant filtration challenges.
