Jorgensen Conveyor and Filtration Solutions will spotlight its new FlexFiltration line, including the company's new Flex G Series of modular filtration systems, in Booth 338164 at IMTS 2022. The systems feature pre-engineered modules that ensure flexible filtration configurations and add value to virtually any application.
FlexFiltration systems efficiently remove fine chips and grinding sludge to achieve coolant clarity down to 10 microns or less, the company says. They are filtration systems that are well suited for challenging applications with materials that range from cast iron, steel, and aluminum to composites and plastics.
Pre-engineered base configurations and numerous options enable quick construction of FlexFiltration systems to meet specific coolant-flow requirements. Standard, low-profile, and stainless-steel tanks make these systems ideal for machine tool OEMs and regular end users. Other modular options that complete a system include high-pressure pumps, auxiliary pumps, tramp oil skimmers, coolant chillers, heat exchangers, liquid level sensors, temperature sensors, and the ability to control/interface with existing pumps and other equipment.
Jorgensen’s Flex G Series systems feature gravity media filters. The gravity media filtration option is the first one available in the FlexFiltration product line. Gravity filters are offered in 30, 60, and 90 GPM options and come standard with low media roll detection, no media alarm sensor, and automatic roll advance.
A variety of different disposable cloth media are also available based on specific applications. Additional primary filtration options including bag filtration, cyclonic, and permanent media types will soon be offered.

Related Glossary Terms
Materials composed of different elements, with one element normally embedded in another, held together by a compatible binder.
Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.
Machining operation in which material is removed from the workpiece by a powered abrasive wheel, stone, belt, paste, sheet, compound, slurry, etc. Takes various forms: surface grinding (creates flat and/or squared surfaces); cylindrical grinding (for external cylindrical and tapered shapes, fillets, undercuts, etc.); centerless grinding; chamfering; thread and form grinding; tool and cutter grinding; offhand grinding; lapping and polishing (grinding with extremely fine grits to create ultrasmooth surfaces); honing; and disc grinding.
- tramp oil
Oil that is present in a metalworking fluid mix that is not from the product concentrate. The usual sources are machine tool lubrication system leaks.
