VITROSEP Glass Particle Separator.
Separador de Partículas de Vidrio VITROSEP.

The particles generated in the grinding of glass produce loss of efficiency in the diamond tools, clogging of tools and machine downtime. Centrifugation and settling systems do not eliminate them completely. These technologies use flocculants and require big maintenance. VITROSEP makes glass particle separators based on filtration providing water with such a quality it can be used in the spindles of the CNC machines. Operation is fully automatic and running costs, very small. The system keeps the particles in suspension. This characteristic together with an appropriate design of the collection and distribution of the water, in which VITROSEP can help, makes not necessary cleaning and manual removal of glass fines in the grinding machines
