Suction and vacuum transport of swarf with an aeraulic network
SFH designs and manufactures chips processing lines dedicated to increasing their value in recycling channels and to re-using cutting fluids.
- Vacuum suction at high speed allows the transport of chips by air for automated transfer to the collecting area.
The main advantages are:
- The possibility to segregate materials.
- Suitable for all standard metallic materials.
- The removal of trolleys and time for handling, No worker costs for handling.
- Optimization of storage space and space next to production machines.
- At any time, the installations are easily adaptable to the workshop structure.
- Recovery and re-use of your cutting fluids.
- Optional - shredder : in case of long or snarled balls chips , the suction units are equipped with a chip crusher to reduce the volume and a foreign parts ejector system.
- With the option chip compacting units, you optimize the global managing of your swarf.
- A higher value resale for your compacted chips, for their valorization in recycling channel thanks to chips densification.
- Environmental requirements compliance and and increased workers safety.
- Promote an environmentally responsible brand.
How is composed a aeraulic chip suction system ?
Each unit stores and evacuates the chips thanks to the dilution of chips in a volume of air and a connection valve to the pipeline system.
- Avoid any risk of clogging the piping.
- Maximizes network life by reducing abrasion.
- Low noise and energy consumption.
- The pipes will be made of galvanized steel with long radius bends to reduce friction.
- The pipes will be mounted end-to-end by removable junction flanges with Viton sealing system.
- In base the dimensioning of the aeraulic transport process is defined to allow an aspiration up to 650 kg/h at a speed of 30 to 40 m/sec around a relative vacuum of -300 to 350 mbar in a pipe DN 80mm of 400 Meters (others specifications on demand).
The piping networks are easily upgradable (machine relocation, production facility expansion, new chip materials, …).
The system is connected to a centralized aero called the treatment area on a cyclonic separator that will receive the oil-soaked chips.
The emptying of the chips will be done by a valve in continuous operation, equipped with a rotary sensor.
The vacuum generation is provided by a booster set screw providing vacuum around a relative vacuum in a pipe.
The chips will then be recovered in the compactor storage hopper to compact it (with briquetting presses) or a centrifuge to dry it , or directly in a ampliroll bin via an automatic distribution chute.
In base, we propose a cyclonic separation technology with air filtration at 25μ (external discharge).
