Manufacturing


Improving Thread and Machining Quality

Problem:

Low quality threads and machining surfaces.

Results After OEI Filtration:

Install OEI Magnetic Filter Rods in the fluid reservoirs of threading machines.

Results After OEI Filtration:

Sub-micron contamination collected dramatically increased production time and decreased operation costs.

Parts Washer Bag Filter Magnetic Filtration Test

Problem:

Filter bag was inefficient filtering contamination to required specifications (under 10 microns).

Solutions:

Install OEI Magnetic Filter Rod into current filter bag to enhance the current filtration.

Results After OEI Filtration:

After installation, a secondary parts washer was no longer required resulting in considerable cost savings.

Processing Plant Cutting Oil Filtration

Problem:

High contamination levels in cutting fluid.

Solution:

Install OEI ADD-Vantage 9000 Dual Filtration Filter to capture contamination with the cleanable stainless steel mesh media filter, along side the OEI Magnetic Filter Rod.

Results After OEI Filtration:

The cutting fluid is filtered twice before reaching the ADD-Vantage 9000 filter to collect large debris, however high levels of contamination 40 microns in size and below were captured with OEI filtration.

Coal Furnace Steam Boiler Filtration

Problem:

Low quality coal used in furnace due to contamination such as steel, wires and nails in steam boiler.

Solution:

Install OEI Magnetic Filter Rod in the boiler to collect contamination.

Results After OEI Filtration:

Wire, nails, and other steel parts captured with the Magnetic Filter Rod decreasing unscheduled downtime and costly maintenance.

Cutting Fluid Filtration

Problem:

 

Traditional filtration unable to filter contamination below 40 microns in size from cutting and cooling fluid reducing its ability to lubricate, causing premature wear of dyes and substandard product quality.

Solution:

Install OEI Magnetic Scrubber to collect ferrous and non-ferrous contamination.

Results:

The OEI filter has been in place for 14 years without failure collecting contamination weekly that traditional filtration missed. The ROI was realized within 2 months of service.
