Filtraglass and Climadrago: A successful partnership

November 22, 2021 Interview1

Filtraglass Is An International Market Leader In Water Filtration Systems For All Types Of Glass Industries

One of the most recent systems installed by Filtraglass was a DG.365 at Climadrago, a company specialising in treatment of flat glass.

Filtraglass, with more than 15 years of experience in the sector, specialises in the manufacture of water filtration systems for all types of glass industries, covering a wide sector of the automotive and optics industries, and the transformation of flat glass in general.

Throughout its long history, the company has managed to become an international market leader, breaking new ground and exporting its systems to several different countries. Today, its water filtration systems can be found in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
One of the most recent systems installed by Filtraglass was a DG.365 at Climadrago, a company with over two generations of experience in its sector, specialising in the treatment of flat glass. Its director, Juan Felix, explained just how important Filtraglass systems are to his company and the benefits they bring.

Why did you choose Filtraglass systems over others?
For Climadrago, treating the water we use for glass is essential, which is why we conducted a study on the different systems available in the market. Although other comprehensive equipment are available, we believed that Filtraglass systems best suited our needs, and also offered us the most guarantees to achieve optimal results.

Why did you decide to buy a purification machine?
We bought a water filtration machine to improve the quality of our products, something that is very important to us, and also to improve our efficiency, because having a filtration system reduces waiting times and therefore makes daily processes more efficient.

Have you experienced an increase in productivity since installing the machines?
Definitely. Installing the system has given us, on the one hand, peace of mind, knowing that we are doing the right thing, that the water that comes into contact with our glass is properly filtered and free from potentially damaging impurities. And on the other hand, the guarantee of obtaining an optimum level of product quality, something that is very important for us, as it means our final customers are satisfied and we avoid having to deal with issues at a later date, which can eat up time.

How often do you change the water?
We never change the water completely. We carry out daily checks of the water levels in the tank and add water from time to time to replace the water that evaporates or is lost while the machine is in operation, replenishing more or less according to how long it is operative. We no longer face issues related to a lack of water or overheating, since the water is kept always at room temperature.

Did you notice a big change in water consumption?
At Climadrago, we are aware that water is our main asset, not only at a business level but also in terms of society as a whole. For many years we were of the belief that it was unlimited, but we are now coming to realise that nothing could be further from the truth. Since we installed the Filtraglass system we have reduced our consumption; our DG.365 has given us significant savings in water consumption and the most important thing is that it works with a simple filtration process, which we appreciate greatly.

Which machines do you use Filtraglass systems for?
At Climadrago, we work with the DG.365, which we have connected to four machines: two straight-line edging machines, a bevelling machine and a vertical panel saw. Not all our machines work at the same time, instead they take over from one another. For this reason, when installing the water recycling system, Filtraglass customised and optimised it for our specific glass handling machine set up.
Climadrago is just one of the many companies in the world that already rely on Filtraglass systems, enjoying all their benefits, such as savings in water consumption, reductions in production line stoppages, extended service life for machinery and components, higher productivity, less environmental pollution, no clogging of pipes, reductions in coolant consumption and, finally, and very importantly, an improved final product.
