Lubriserv Ltd awarded prestigious swarf system order for Federal Mogul UK....
After months of research and testing suitable solutions for reclaiming their neat cutting oil back form cast iron swarf, Federal Mogul UK have awarded Lubriserv the project for a bespoke swarf centrifuge capable of handling cast iron drilling swarf on a large scale in order to dry the swarf and reclaim the neat cutting oil.
The demands of the system were to reduce the moisture/oil content down to <2% by weight. The project was never going to be straight forward as cast iron swarf from the drilling operations is very small compared to general metalcutting swarf.
The system will have a vibrating screen to remove any bar ends and solids and a specially designed wear resistant basket coupled with a self cleaning rotary drum filter. A continuous recirculation of the swarf chips from the discharge of the hopper into the feed conveyor – this will allow the reclaimed oil from the cast chips and sludge to be filtered before returning to a storage tank ready for machining operations. In order to prevent any potential blockages the system also incorporates a back flush mechanism which will remove any debris sticking to the components.
The complete system will be mounted on a skid to allow easy transport and installation.
Lubriserv have a range of systems from small manual swarf spinners to large systems that can separate different batches of materials and oils.
