Filtration Media – Coolant Filtration Paper and Permanent Media

Barnes International has the experience to work very closely with our customers to analyze their filtration requirements and determine the most efficient and economical permanent filter media or filter paper for any application. Particle size, shape and physical properties of the contaminant must be considered in making accurate, cost-saving filter fabric selections.

With coolant samples sent to us, we can provide complete coolant analysis. In our fully equipped laboratory we can test for coolant contaminant levels, pH levels for water based coolant, coolant mix ratios, viscosity and water percentage for oil based coolants, magnetic particle analysis, particle distribution analysis and filtration efficiency. We specialize in manufacturing the world’s best fabric coolant filters and providing the filter media that will get the job done! (Fabric to work with your Barnes filter or any other manufacturer’s filter!) This includes fabrics specifically suited to water-soluble and cutting oil applications.

Filter Fabric Specifications

 Fabric
Number
Nominal
Micron Rating
Application
MS-861 70 Synthetic gauze. High viscosity oils and large chips.
MS-859 50 Water soluble and medium viscosity oils. Medium to large particles.
MS-815 40 Good general-purpose fabric for water soluble and medium viscosity oils. Grinding mild steel.  RMS finishes of 20 and above.
MS-876 40 IM filter. Water soluble and medium viscosity oils.
MS-817 25 Recommended for grinding cast iron and some non-ferrous materials. Water soluble and medium viscosity oils.
MS-877 25 IM filter.  Similar to MS-817 but more strength. Particularly suited for heavy emulsions.

MS-874 10 IM filter. General purpose. Works very well on low to medium viscosity oils.

Filter Fabric Troubleshooting Guide

 

PROBLEM

 

 

CAUSE

 

SOLUTION

Fabric Gets Caught on Edges of Grid Belt Fabric pan too full Empty pan more often
  Outside links of grid belt worn or broken Replace grid belt
  Grid belt installed incorrectly Consult factory
Excessive Fabric Usage Float switch set too low Reset float switch. See maintenance instructions
  Filter fabric too dense Change to a more open grade. Call factory representative
  Coolant foaming excessively Consult coolant supplier
  Coolant viscosity higher than originally specified Change to correct coolant or change fabric to a more open grade
  Coolant flow rate higher than originally specified Reduce flow rate to match capacity of filter
  Magnetic brake on clutch assembly malfunctioning Consult factory
Fabric Does Not Index Float switch set too high Reset float switch. See maintenance manual
  Filter fabric too open Change to denser grade. Call factory representative
  Fabric not seated under seal wheels Rethread fabric. See maintenance instructions
  Grid belt too loose Retighten or replace grid belt. See maintenance instructions.
Excessive Contamination in Clean Coolant Tank Coolant overflowing filter pool Fabric not indexing normally. Reset float switch
  Fabric too open Change to denser grade. Call factory representative
  Ripped or torn fabric Replace fabric as necessary.
  Grid belt too loose Retighten or replace grid belt. See maintenance instructions
  Fabric not seated under seal wheels Rethread fabric. See maintenance instructions.
  Fabric not installed correctly Reinstall fabric. See section on threading fabric
