New MP-B series highpressure coolant pumps from MonsterSwiss (www.monsterswiss.com) are hydraulically balanced to reduce maintenance costs because there are no packings, cups or seals.
These rugged, fixed or variablevolume pumps are built to handle the abrasive particles found in machine tool coolants that can wear out conventional centrifugal, screw, or piston pumps.
In lathe and mill applications, these pumps effectively remove chips from even deep and blind holes and reduce cyclic cooling in milling applications. Cyclic cooling occurs when steam is produced and creates a boundary layer that interferes with coolant effectively reaching the tool/ workpiece interface. In grinding, the MP-B’s high-pressure (1,000 psi) keeps the wheels free of swarf build-up and cooled, again by breaking the boundary layer created by the wheel’s high speed. The result is increased wheel life and metal-removal rates.
Further, the MP-B’s positivedisplacement design allows users to adjust the flow rate by changing the speed of the pump shaft. This is a helpful feature when using tools with different coolant flow requirements. The unit is portable on sturdy locking castors, so operators can easily move it when necessary, even with the 50-gallon reservoir filled.
MP-B pumps have electrical components manufactured by Sprecher + Schuh, a Swiss company, and are certified to the highest standards including UL, CSA, and CE. All machine components, including twin filters, are housed conveniently and neatly inside the cabinet assembly.
