View Full Version : Filtration for Citizens?

11-12-2007, 07:00 PM
Hello All,
I was wondering if anyone knows of any good oil filtration solutions for a citizen A16 and a B12. Currently we have no filtration at all, which seems like a really bad idea.

Is there any good, reasonably priced bolt-on systems?? I was thinking of getting a large automotive oil filter (maybe for a large truck or tractor) and just rigging up a system on the back of the machine, there is a perfect place for it. We don't have high-pressure coolant so i think a filter like that would work well.
any suggestions?

You should try Citizen Machinery America 413-786-6655. They sell the high pressure pumps but also carry the additional filters you are looking for.

Actually, the older-style L32 machines used exactly that type of filter for the high-pressure system!
Whatever you end up with, make sure it's up to the task... if you do a lot of milling, and generate a lot of fine chips, anything short of a sock-type filter will need to be replaced/cleaned very often.
