Fluid Recovery System – Smart Drum & Green Screen

SMART DRUM

Machining coolants, metalworking fluids, quench fluids, wash solutions and many other fluids processed through Maggie are extremely valuable. These fluids are expensive to purchase and expensive to treat or dispose. When the Smart Drum and Smart Drum PLUS (SD) are used with Maggie, virtually none of these valuable fluids are lost. The SD is a fluid recovery device. The SD is a fully automatic, batch process, magnetic separator that is used in conjunction with Maggie in-line separators. The purpose of the SD is to physically remove the magnetic fines from the Maggie purge fluid and return the fluid back to the process. Click on the Maggie video to see how the SD works in tandem with Maggie to separate out the solids from the purge fluid and return the valuable fluid back to the process.

Purge fluid from Maggie flows to the SD at system pressure.  The inlet diffuser and upper tank serve to reduce the pressure and act as a surge tank.  The fluid drains via gravity from the upper tank into the lower pan and across the magnetic drum before exiting the system.  All fluid must pass across the magnetic field prior to discharging from the front of the unit.  There is no by-pass flow. Click on the Smart Drum video to see how the drum rotates and captures the chips/fines. As the drum continues to rotate, the fines/chips are removed by the plastic scraper, and they drop onto the tray situated at the front of the drum.  The fines/chips fall off the tray and into a customer supplied chip bin located below (ZGF can also provide a chip hopper to collect the chips / fines).  The fluid from the SD is directed back to the process.  Flow out of the SD is via gravity.

An optional wringer roller is available. The wringer roller is designed to reduce the liquid/moisture content of the solids/sludge that is removed by Maggie. The wringer roller is spring tension adjustable.

When the Maggie and Smart Drum products are configured together as a system, ZGF can provide the best available & most environmentally responsible technology with the lowest 10-year lifecycle cost in the industry.

GREEN SCREEN

Machining coolants, metalworking fluids, quench fluids, wash solutions and many other fluids processed through ZGF EZ Clean filters are extremely valuable. These fluids are expensive to purchase and expensive to treat or dispose. When the Green Screen is used as a backwash fluid recovery device with an EZ Clean filter, virtually none of this valuable fluid is lost.

Like all ZGF technology, the Green Screen:

  • Requires minimal maintenance or operator interface
  • Provides consistent and reliable performance
  • No disposable media
  • Has a compact design
  • Is SIMPLE, CLEVER & EFFECTIVE

Overview

  • Backwash fluid from a ZGF EZ Clean filter (i.e. Phoenix, EC700S, EC900, EC700, EC100) automatic, permanent media filtration system is directed into the Green Screen.
  • The Green Screen utilizes a series of baffles to encourage settling of solids into the hopper.
  • Smaller solids are captured by a series of permanent media filter panels.
  • The permanent media filter panels are easily removed and cleaned, as required.
  • Green Screen is a manual device.
  • Green Screen PLUS is a fully automated version.
  • Green Screen is a gravity drain device. An optional discharge pump is available.
