SMS group Multi-Plate® filters are used for cleaning cooling lubricants during the cold rolling of aluminum. Although only made ready for the market in 2003, 57 systems have already been installed until today. "We are setting standards in the market worldwide with our Multi-Plate® filters," proudly explains Jan-Peer Remy, an SMS group expert in the field of flat rolling mill process technology. Jan-Peer Remy does not consider one individual advantage to be the reason for the sales success, but rather a combination: "Our modular solutions are distinguished by their efficiency, performance and flexibility. And that in a very compact form." According to Jan-Peer Remy, the filters are a long-term favorite in practical applications, immediately from the day of commissioning. "Each filter is subjected to a multi-stage function test by our SMS experts before delivery, which shortens the on-site commissioning process and provides the customer with a high degree of reliability," says Jan-Peer Remy.
The special feature of the filters can be found inside: the filter plates are made of high-performance plastic. This plastic makes the SMS group filter systems many times lighter than conventional filters, resulting in reduced costs for transport and foundations. SMS group offers a modular range of solutions for Multi-Plate® filters with filter performances ranging from 1,400 to 12,500 liters of rolling oil per minute, depending on customer requirements.
