Amba Engineering work now has available small, cost effective oil skimmers for removing tramp oil from machine tool coolant tank. The Amba Engineering work wheel skimmer (WS) effectively removes floating tramp oil from water soluble coolants.
Tramp oil caused leaking hydraulic system & usage of way oil is an even present problem in the management of water soluble coolants. Tramp oil reduces the coolants cooling and lubrication properties and supports bacterial growth which produces corrosive sulphuric acid. Tramp oil will shorten the coolant lifetime drastically, sings of affected coolant are: The bad smell, rust stained poor quality parts and premature tool wear. Renewal of labour, purchase and disposal fees and machine down time
The oil skimmer removes up to 5 liter of tramp oil per hour. After half an hour the coolant surface has been cleaned almost completely. Even now the skimmer still removes tramp oil.
THE ADVANTAGES OF OIL SKIMMER
- Low cost tramp oil removal for single machine application.
- Improves coolant performance. Improves coolant life.
- Simple design, few moving parts, low wear, very little maintenance required.
- Easy to install or retro-fit. Removes ferrous fines (M option) from the coolant.
