Ideal for the grinding, honing and lapping industries, the Rush FC300 Grinding Fluid Filtration System is a high-performance filtration system that utilizes edge filtration technology. Balanced clean and dirty fluid tank sizes ensure separation of clean and dirty fluids, even during the automatic element regeneration cycle. Unlike other systems, this system can filter either oil or water, resulting ina high degree of filtration (oneµm for oils and fiveµm for water-based fluids) with minimal customer maintenance. For use with carbide, HSS, stainless steel, ceramics, and other materials, the Rush system allows reclamation of high value materials.

Single and multiple pump configurations are available for clean fluid delivery and make the system highly flexible to meet customers' requirements. For dirty fluid handling, the system uses seal-less cast iron filter pumps that extend pump life.

Rush Machinery offers customized systems designed for specific machines and shop floor layout. Single and multiple machine and centralized configurations are available. All pneumatic and electrical controls are housed in conveniently located enclosures. Grinding Fluid Filtration System options include pre-filters for removing steel swarf when filtering steel or a mix of carbide and steel, as well as a selection of large capacity cooling systems made specifically for oil or water.

Related Glossary Terms

  • ceramics

    ceramics

    Cutting tool materials based on aluminum oxide and silicon nitride. Ceramic tools can withstand higher cutting speeds than cemented carbide tools when machining hardened steels, cast irons and high-temperature alloys.

  • grinding

    grinding

    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.

  • high-speed steels ( HSS)

    high-speed steels ( HSS)

    Available in two major types: tungsten high-speed steels (designated by letter T having tungsten as the principal alloying element) and molybdenum high-speed steels (designated by letter M having molybdenum as the principal alloying element). The type T high-speed steels containing cobalt have higher wear resistance and greater red (hot) hardness, withstanding cutting temperature up to 1,100º F (590º C). The type T steels are used to fabricate metalcutting tools (milling cutters, drills, reamers and taps), woodworking tools, various types of punches and dies, ball and roller bearings. The type M steels are used for cutting tools and various types of dies.

  • lapping

    lapping

    Finishing operation in which a loose, fine-grain abrasive in a liquid medium abrades material. Extremely accurate process that corrects minor shape imperfections, refines surface finishes and produces a close fit between mating surfaces.

  • swarf

    swarf

    Metal fines and grinding wheel particles generated during grinding.
