FL-0016

OPERATION

The FL-0016 Media Filter utilizes wire mesh pads to catch metal particles, dust and liquids that pass through the vacuum blocks prior to reaching the vacuum tank and pump. It is recommended to place a FL-0016 Media Filter behind the FL-0803 Knockdown Filter in every vacuum system. Separate filters should be utilized for each press when multiple presses are connected to the same vacuum system.

Cleaning FL-0016 Media Filters is specific to process and system configuration, and should be conducted on both a regular schedule and as needed. Cleaning can be achieved by replacing the three wire mesh pads and cleaning the wire screen inside the body of the filter. If filters are not appropriately cleaned, they may clog and prevent proper function of the vacuum blocks within the casting process.

FL-0803

OPERATION

The FL-0803 Knockdown Filter with 1” NPT ports utilizes baffles to prevent material from passing through the vacuum system to the pump and tank. It is recommended to place the FL-0803 approximately ten feet from the vacuum blocks. The FL-0803 may be drained by means of a valve located at the bottom of the filter. To ensure proper function, drain the FL-0803 regularly. Occasionally, the body of the FL-0803 should be disassembled and the baffles cleaned.
