MSC Filtration Technologies is a representative of PRAB Filter Systems systems. Together MSC and PRAB have over 150 years of combined machine tool waste handling experience.
Although we have standard equipment designs available, our engineers and manufacturing staff are also trained to listen to what you need and then develop an idea that makes the best economical and technical sense for your application. We are able to handle just about any chip, scrap, handling waste reduction and liquid removal application you have.
Extend Coolant and tool life by an average of 27%, increase surface finish, and control bacteria with PRAB's line of paper bed filters. Standard paper bed filtration units are available with flow rates up to 130 gpm with different classes of filter media allowing for adjustments of micron clarity. Filters are suitable for applications of low to medium stock removal of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, as well as organic and inorganic contaminant such as glass, rubber and plastic. Drum-type models occupy one third the floor space and can process up to 500 gpm of fluids.
Specifications: Paper Bed Filters
Standard paper bed filters use disposable media to filter between 5 and 130 gpm with tank capacities of between 20 and 220 gallons. Available with or without magnetic separation.

Stainless Steel Filters
The stainless steel paper bed filtration system is designed for the plastics manufacturing industry to provide efficient and economical separation of plastic pellets from water with flow rates up to 400 gpm. Higher rates available.
These filters utilize a vacuum chamber to draw dirty coolant through the disposable filter media. A vacuum system draws the dirty coolant through the filter media, causing solids and sludge to build up and cake on the media. Upon completion of the indexing cycle the filter returns to the normal operating mode. The clean tank is continuously and automatically refilled for the next index cycle.
Standard Vacuum Filter units are available with flow rates up to 4000 gpm. Custom designed vacuum filters are our specialty.
The Mon-A-permanent uses semi-permanent elements to eliminate disposable media and reduce operation costs. Back flushing the filter with clean coolant keeps the filter clean and eliminates the need for large volumes of air. The back-flushed solids drop from the filter element and settle into a tank where they are removed via an automatic chain dragout. The Mon-A-permanent requires minimal floor space and is completely self contained, simplifying maintenance and operation. Vacuum filter systems are offered in models, sizes, capacities, flow rates and media necessary to meet your needs.
PRAB's line of Solid Bowl Centrifuges effectively separates solid from liquids in metal processing applications where removal of fines is important to recycle and reuse goals.
PRAB Solid Bowl Centrifuges provide high performance liquid separation for all types of particles, metallic, ferrous, non-ferrous, and non-metallic solids. Our centrifuges are available in both manually cleaned basket style, complete with reusable liner, and fully automatic self cleaning designs.
PRAB & MSC specialize in liquid-liquid and liquid-solid centrifuge separation technology, solids feathering, and centrifuge liquid filtration and fluid clarification systems technology with many performance enhancing design features.
Fully Automatic Centrifuges are now available. This model requires little to no maintenance associated with cleaning the centrifuge. All of PRAB's Solid Bowl centrifuges are specifically engineered for heavy-duty industrial applications and provide consistent, reliable operation over long life-cycles.
You can expect a comprehensive industrial application sample tests to establish an accurate understanding of the unique characteristics of your mixed solution. This test will determine the correct centrifuge system design and capacity. MSC and PRAB technical engineers are able to design and construct the optimum system for your facility.

PRAB's line of magnetic separators employ high-intensity ferrite or rare earth magnets within a fully energized rotating drum to continuously remove ferrous particles from the flow of liquid. These systems are often used as a pre-filter to limit contaminants reaching subsequent filtration equipment. Magnetic Separators are well suited to processes where ferrous and non-ferrous contaminants are mixed with water based coolants or straight cutting oils.
Depending upon your applications needs, PRAB and MSC offer three models of magnetic separators.
Use rare earth magnets when the following conditions are met:
PRAB's Enviro 1200 is a highly efficient, low-maintenance solution for improving machining productivity at the source by removing chips and filtering fluids with a single, integrated system.
Max. permissible oil viscosity:
The PRAB Candle Filter is specifically engineered to meet the challenges of efficiently removing fine particulate from spent oil in honing and EDM applications and tungsten carbide tool and steel ball grinding applications. This new filter uses media in a long cylinder that houses over 10,000 thin membrane wafers. These membranes effectively and consistently capture grinding swarf at 1 micron. These dependable filters operate with virtually no down time for maintenance. The self-cleaning air driven backwash system automatically clears the filter of dirt and debris allowing the Candle Filter to perform reliably under large production runs.
