  • Publication number: 20180280841
    Abstract: A filtration device has a primary conveyer tank which is equipped with a first conveyer, a primary drum filter which rotates inside the primary conveyer tank, a secondary conveyer tank which is equipped with a second conveyer and a secondary drum filter which rotates inside the secondary conveyer tank. Liquid in the primary conveyer tank passes through a first opening to flow into the secondary conveyer tank. Clean liquid flowing into a first clean tank is supplied to a low-pressure-side supply system by a first pump. Super-clean liquid having been filtered by the secondary drum filter passes through a second opening to flow into a second clean tank, and then is supplied to a high-pressure-side supply system by a second pump.

  • Patent number: 7976704
    Abstract: A filtration device is provided with a filter tank, filter media unit, and magnet. The filter media unit includes a filter media accommodation case and a large number of magnetic granular filter media. The magnet is movable between first and second positions. In the first position, a magnetic field is applied to the magnetic granular filter media, so that the magnetic granular filter media magnetically attract one another. In the second position, magnetic attraction between the magnetic granular filter media is canceled. The filter media accommodation case includes a nonmagnetic mesh member of a nonmagnetic material and magnetism intensification plate of a magnetic material. When the magnet is in the first position, the magnetic granular filter media and nonmagnetic mesh member are located between the magnetism intensification plate and the magnet.

  • Publication number: 20110062064
    Abstract: A filtration device is provided with a filter tank, filter medium unit, magnet, and submerged air discharging mechanism. The filter medium unit includes a large number of magnetic filter medium granules formed of metal balls. When the magnet is in a first position, the magnetic filter medium granules magnetically attract one another. When the magnet is moved to a second position, the magnetic filter medium granules are released from the mutual magnetic attraction. In cleaning the magnetic filter medium granules, a clean fluid located above the magnetic filter medium granules is poured between the magnetic filter medium granules. In cleaning the magnetic filter medium granules, the submerged air discharging mechanism ejects air into the clean fluid above the magnetic filter medium granules and toward the magnetic filter medium granules. Air bubbles are introduced into the clean fluid by the ejected air.

  • Patent number: 7867388
    Abstract: A contaminated fluid recovery apparatus includes a sludge removal mechanism having a dirty tank, a conveyor, and a magnetic drum which is arranged in the fluid circulating section. The contaminated fluid recovery apparatus is provided with an overflow tank. The overflow tank has a function to keep a fluid surface of the dirty tank in a position higher than the fluid circulating section and the magnetic drum. The magnetic drum is located horizontally between a lower portion and an upper portion of the conveyor. The conveyor scrapes out chips deposited on a bottom portion of the dirty tank toward an exit section. A scraping member, which is in contact with the magnetic drum, drops sludge attracted to the magnetic drum toward the lower portion of the conveyor.

  • Patent number: 7504032
    Abstract: A filter device has a filter tank into which a contaminated fluid is introduced, a magnetic ball filter medium using a large number of metal balls, magnets, and lift rods. The magnetic ball filter medium is formed of an aggregate of a large number of spherical metal balls of a magnetic material and is held in a filter medium storage portion in a manner such that the metal balls are movable relatively to one another. The magnets are movable between a first position and a second position. When in the first position, the magnets apply a magnetic field to the metal balls, thereby causing the metal balls magnetically to attract one another and so that the metal balls are fixed to one another. When in the second position, the magnetic attraction between the metal balls is canceled so that the metal balls are movable.
