Oil Skimmer

Coolant Tank Oil Skimmer is an integrated solution for keeping your coolant tank free of tramp oils. It saves your time and money by extending the life of your coolant and reducing coolant maintenance. During operation, it removes oil from the surface of the coolant, and deposits it into a collection container. Power can be supplied by the machine outlet on the control cabinet, or from any power outlet.
  • Removes tramp oils directly from the coolant surface
  • Extends coolant life by minimizing bacteria growth
  • Plugs into the outlet of the machine, or into any  outlet
  • Can use an electrical timer to control operation

SEPERATING OIL FROM COOLANT

Will  help reduce disposal costs. The cost of disposing of oil laden coolant is more expensive than disposing of oil. In fact, in some instances, companies may be able to re-use the oil elsewhere or sell it for recycling. Having oil free coolant can also extend its usefulness and effectiveness, reducing the expense on maintenance and coolant replacement. As the research on the different types of oil skimmers begins, a person will find that there are a variety of skimmers available to them. Separating oil from water based coolants has been made easy by oil skimming equipments.

BELT TYPE OIL SKIMMER
DISK TYPE OIL SKIMMER
The most common types are the belt, disk, and tube skimmers. Each type of coolant skimmer has its advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages of Using an Oil Skimmer:

Some of the advantages of using a belt skimmer are as follows. With its compact size, it requires very little operating space. Belt skimmers have good oil pick up rates (up to 20lph depending on belt width). This type of skimmer can handle fluctuating coolant levels while still maintaining minimal operating space and maximum pick up capacity.

Skimmer Components

  • Skimming head – the component separating oil from water
  • Transfer system – built-in pump or vacuum unit, discs, brushes, belts, tubes or ropes, hoses and couplings
  • Containment unit – Tank or container for recovered oil

BENEFITS:

Removing the oil from a machine coolant tank will initiate some aesthetic benefits such as cutting down on the amount of smoke generated from the cutting tool coming into contact with oil laden coolant.
When a machine is shut down for the weekend, oil has a chance to come to the surface of the coolant tank. Bacteria that are living in the coolant tank use up the dissolved oxygen in the coolant mix, a process that is sped up by having a layer of oil on the surface. This allows odor causing anaerobic bacteria to thrive, giving off that familiar “rotten egg” smell.
Contrary to popular belief the common types of bacteria found in metalworking fluids do not cause dermatitis. However, if the skin is broken, bacteria that normally inhabit the skin may enter and cause infection. The presence of phosphates and carbonates that increase alkalinity in the coolant, however, can cause dermatitis. These impurities are found in the water being used in the coolant mix.
There are also many factors that need to be considered when choosing the correct type of oil skimmer to fit the appropriate application. Factors such as water level fluctuation, water temperature, pH level, the use of rust inhibitors, the amount of oil to be skimmed, quality, and cost, must all be considered when selecting an oil skimmer.
The Disk Skimmer provides an inexpensive way to remove unwanted tramp oils from CNC coolants and parts washers. Disk skimmers can offer a slightly more cost effective and higher pick up rate compared to belt skimmer.
However disk skimmer equipment requires a larger operating space to accommodate the disk and a steady fluid level for optimal efficiency.
