Mayfran’s pumpback stations are designed around the needs of the machine and chips produced. They fluidize chips to better pump them and the coolant to an overhead heavy-duty coolant return header. From there, they are transferred to a central or regional filter.
They can include:
- A lift conveyor for low discharge
- Shredders or crushers for strings and turnings
- Drag conveyors for broken chips and larger coolant holding requirements
If the facility layout allows it, several machines can discharge into a single pumpback system, which can either have independent controls or be controlled by the machine tool.
