Magnetic Filtration

If you’ve spent any time in the DIY space, you may know pots and pans can be cleaned with ash, sand, or baking soda (and vinegar). These are all super fine, powdery substances, so they seem benign, but they’re abrasive enough to scrub blackened kitchen utensils. In the filtration space, we recognise fine materials can do just as much as damage as a key in the wrong hands.

Metallic fragments are particularly risky. They’re barely visible, but they can scrape machine parts, leading to expensive repairs, and damaging your final products as well. You could filter them out, but even the …

How Does A Waste Oil Centrifuge Work

Ordinarily, oil accumulates dirt and foreign particles as it passes through your equipment. The type of dirt depends on what the oil is used for. It might be soot, glass shards, metal particles, or water vapour. These particles are abrasive, so they can damage the equipment itself, leading to expensive repairs. They can also lower the quality of your finished product.

Oil itself is pricy, so if you can re-use it, that would be helpful. The usual procedure – if you’re not recycling your oil – is to drain your oil sumps. However, this leaves about 40% of the dirty oil …

Interfil User Reviews

They say experience is the best teacher, and in a way, they’re right. After all, few lessons are learned as thoroughly as the ones you ‘learn by doing’. You can’t always do that though. If you’re buying a car, your salesperson might let you test drive it. Or if you’re buying software, you could explore its free trial for a few weeks. With industrial equipment, you can visit a factory and see how the devices work, but that’s not helpful if you live far from the plant.

Yes, making the trip might be worth it, but first, you have to be …

Interfil Offer A Total Package When Supplying Filtration Equipment

In today’s world, some of us are extremely dedicated to environmental conservation. It’s a matter of principle, and we do everything we can to stay green. For others, sustainability efforts are more targeted. With compliance penalties, taking care of our surroundings just makes business sense. Penalties could drive your firm into the ground, not to mention the damage it can do to your reputation. Besides, in many instances, it’s cheaper.

Just as an example, legally disposing of toxic materials can be really expensive, and investing in the right recycling equipment can save you thousands of dollars. This machinery may seem astronomically …

TIPS FOR CHOOSING YOUR NEW INTERFIL CENTRIFUGE

Centrifugal force is extremely useful in the separation and filtration industry. It uses the power and speed of rotation creating centrifugal forces to divide substances of varying densities. These forcesassist to purify oil, wastewater, fuel, and other substances. Here at Interfil, we have studied these processes for more than three decades and built customised solutions.

The reason we stand behind our filtration systems is we drafted, designed, patented, and manufactured them all ourselves, right here in Australia. We have full control of the entire production process, so we can tell you how it works, why it works, and what steps will …

Why the Metal Industry Often Uses Coolants for Production

The term ‘coolant’ seems pretty straightforward – it’s something that cools things down. The reality is a little more complex. A coolant has two main uses: lowering temperatures and providing lubrication. These two roles create a perpetual cycle in a sense, especially in the metal industry. Here’s how it works. You might remember from your school science lessons that metal is a good conductor. That means it can get hot or cold quite quickly, usually by drawing heat from the things around it.

So, for example, when you touch a metal spoon, it feels cold on your skin. This is because …

Our Magnetic Filtration Drum Separators Are Maintenance-Free

In some industries, people put off cleaning as long as possible for two reasons. One, it’s a thankless, perpetual task, so you wait until it’s absolutely necessary (even though ironically, the longer you put it off, the more labour is involved). The longer they leave it the more settled compacted solids at the bottom of the tank cause havoc for cleaning and removal.

Two, cleaning often involves shutting down the machine, unless you want to lose crucial body parts. This means halting the production line, missing deadlines, and potentially costing you thousands of dollars in lost time. True capitalists will hold …

Oil Centrifuge Units – Manual or Fully-Automated Self-Cleaning?

When the average person thinks about recycling, they focus on household plastics, cans, and waste paper. It’s a pretty basic activity for them, which largely revolves around trash separation and colour-coded bins. But there’s a larger scale involved, one which is essential to industrial operations, and that’s liquid filtration. In manufacturing plants, thousands of litres of liquid get used every day, so it needs to be reused, repurposed, or safely disposed of – sometimes all three, because wastewater gathers toxins during industrial processes.
There are also oil wastes that need to be filtered. They range from cutting …

Types of Centrifuges – Some General Information

The demand for unique solutions to modern day challenges has led innovators to develop methods of taming natural forces and energy for commercial and domestic purposes. A centrifuge is an example of a solution that is used in the separation of solid components in fluids and liquid filtration. The centrifuge works by spinning objects in a circle on a fixed axis. This spinning action generates two radial forces in the centrifuge namely Centrifugal and Centripetal Force.
Centrifugal Force pushes components outward towards the edge of the circle, while Centripetal works in the opposite direction, pulling components inwards …

The accelerating demand for industrial air filtration technologies Part 2

In Part 1 of this series, we talked about the need to protect the factory interiors from air pollution. Some of these plants recycle our waste, but they deeply damage their own health in the process. Today we’ll take a broader look at the problem. Regarding air pollution and its relation to filtration, multiple sectors are involved. They include power generation (both fossil fuels and renewable energy), manufacturing, healthcare, metals, and more. The type of air filter used in a firm depends on the type of in-house waste it generates. Air pollution can be in the form …
