Mass finishing techniques are often used to uniformly prepare and finish work-pieces, but the compounds and liquids used to remove fines and other debris from work-pieces must be dealt with to ensure a repeatable process application. Cleaning and/or recycling waste water produced in the mass finishing process is easily achieved with centrifuge technology and provides opportunities to be more environmentally responsible and save money in the form of reduced labor and materials (cleaning agents and compounds).
How Centrifuges Work
In a centrifuge, waste materials including media and metal fines are often referred to as effluent. The effluent to be cleaned either flows directly from the mass finishing system Continue reading Waste Water Recycling – Centrifuge Technology Offers Cost, Environmental Savings
Industrial process water re-circulation is the preferred water treatment method for so many applications. Process water recycling systems can be connected to virtually any wet processing machine (and multiples of) and can make significant savings by way of reduced volumes of water (and compounds) used and their associated disposal costs.

A question that faces many mass finishing and wet or vapour blast machine users, as well as those using machining centres and pre-painting wash plants is how do I separate process liquids and solids from each other?
Process liquid separation and recirculation provide opportunities to save, be environmentally responsible and be more economic.

There are a number of ways diecast manufacturers can choose to go when looking to deburr and finish large numbers of components.
Here we look at the options of vibratory vs blast processing and bring to your attention a few facts and choices you should consider.
