An emulsion is a mixture of two or more, normally immiscible liquids such as oil and water. Emulsions are indispensable in metalworking. Their effect is, however, reduced successively by bacteria and tramp oils. MKR offers you filtering and cleaning systems that can be integrated into your production. This extends significantly the service lives of emulsions and other process media as well as tools.
So-called metalworking fluid is used as a lubricant in production to prevent friction between the tool and workpiece. At the same time, the metalworking fluid also prevents corrosion of the workpiece and, through continuous rinsing of the working environment by means of metalworking fluid, better processing results are achieved. With MKR equipment you can clean the metalworking fluid and reuse it for further production.
With the help of ultrafiltration, molecular substances and ultrafine particles can be separated out of a medium, such as an emulsion, and concentrated. Ultrafiltration requires no chemicals whatsoever and is a purely mechanical process. This type of filtering cannot be achieved by normal filters, but only by ultrafiltration and our MKR ultrafiltration units.
