Glass Grinds Filtration

Glass fabricators require an effective glass grinds filtration and separation system for removing the glass grinds from the coolant. Glass grinds can wreak havoc on glass fabrication equipment, causing increased maintenance costs, unplanned downtime, decreased production yields, and decreased equipment life. Not only do glass grinds cause excessive wear on moving parts, but they can settle throughout your fabrication and processing system and over time completely clog pipes. The importance of effective glass grinds filtration from the coolant can’t be stressed enough.

Glass grind sludge

Settling tanks, cartridge type filters, indexing paper, or a filter press are some of the older ways of filtering glass grinds from the coolant. These systems are costly to operate, and generate additional labor costs and waste streams and expenses that can be greater issues than the solids alone. Centrifugal filtration is the most efficient, cost-effective method to separate glass grinds from the coolant.

CentraSep® offers a glass grinds filtration system that greatly reduces the regular maintenance needed for typical glass grinds removal processes. By properly filtering and separating glass grinds, you can produce predictable grinding wheel / belt / drill life, as well as the best edge quality, and maintain a dependable production output by eliminating downtime.

CentraSep installed their first glass grinds filtration and separation centrifuge in 2000 on a glass grinding line. Since that time, CentraSep has become the preferred solution for filtering and separating glass grinds and is considered part of the “Best Practices” of the leading glass fabrication facilities across the globe. Today, CentraSep has glass grinding coolant filtration and separation systems in 18 countries, and offers custom turnkey glass grinds filtration packages for rapid installation, that deliver simplicity, performance and reliability unrivaled in the filtration and separation industry.
