EnvironMet® Recirculating Filter System


For Grinding and Polishing Machines

The EnvironMet recirculating filter system ideal for those concerned with water conservation and/or environmental protection. There are two configurations, both of which easily integrate with your grinding and polishing machine: a recirculating and filtering system to trap debris and ensure a clean water supply, and a non-recirculating filter system that keeps swarf out of your drain pipes and disposal lines. When hooked up to a compressed air line, these systems run automatically, with the added benefit that each EnvironMet can accommodate two grinder-polishers at once for an efficient and user-friendly experience.

Specimen Holder Benefits

Simple Integration
