Basic systems

EcoBox is Filtraglass’s basic model specially designed for use with bevelling and edging machines.

The machine operates with the same pressure column filtration system as the standard machines offering the same efficiency and environmental protections but at a lower cost thanks to a simpler set up.

The EcoBox is quick and easy to install and only requires the original water tank to be replaced and the system to be assembled.

How does it work?

The system collects and stores the water from the different glass processing machines in a tank. From there, the dirty water is pumped to the pressure cylinder where the filter column is located, separating the water from the dust, allowing the clean water that is ready to be reused to pass through to a new section of the tank, and retaining the dust on the outside in the filter mesh.

On a regular basis, when the machine detects a particular build-up of dust, it dries and compresses the glass dust stuck to the column, discharging it in the form of dry, solid, recyclable residue. This whole cyclical process is fully automatic, requires no staff and does not lead to production line stoppages.

Computer numeric control

All Filtraglass systems can offer optimal quality water for the spindles of CNC, introducing the following changes into them: the installation of a photocell, a pneumatic solenoid valve system, an additional tank for extra clean water and, optionally, a pump set.

Thanks to this supplementary system, extra-clean water can be used in CNC spindles, as an alternative to the use of mains water.
