Advantages of PRAB Guardian™ Coolant Recycling Systems include:
Why does the PRAB Guardian Coolant Recycling System succeed when other systems fail? Successful recycling requires particulate filtration, tramp oil removal, coolant concentration control, and bacteria elimination. The integrated Tramp Oil Separator removes up to 99% of free floating and lossy emulsifying tramp oil. This process extends coolant life, resulting in up to 75% savings on coolant purchases.
The unit removes mechanically dispersed tramp oil through a coalescing media compartment that is self-cleaning. The porous media pack is highly efficient, offering an optimum ratio of coalescent area in open space to pull the maximum amount of tramp oil from the fluid. PRAB’s weir design guarantees the highest purity of oil for maximum value. The PRAB Guardian is available in three different configurations.
The PRAB Guardian’s base configuration includes the following components:
The PRAB Guardian’s standard configuration features all of the components included in the base version as well as some additional elements. Specifically, this package includes a polishing filter assembly that is typically 20-micron rated and a Coolant Manager. Proven to kill up to 99.9% of coolant bacteria, the Coolant Manager is a safe, economical solution that generates and injects Ozone directly into the coolant.
This specific treatment extends coolant life up to 25% and eliminates odors, clogged coolant lines, and slime in sumps. As a result, this decreases the likelihood of employee health issues. Additionally, the coolant manager reduces biocide use and oxidizes bacteria, viruses, cysts, spores, hydrogen sulfate (egg odor), and other contaminants both organic and inorganic.
Additional features included in the Standard configuration:
As the most robust Guardian package, the deluxe configuration includes every feature found in the standard version as well as some other components. In lieu of an inlet basket strainer, the deluxe uses a Paper Bed Filter with 10-micron rated media. A dirty coolant transfer system is also implemented.
Additional features included in the Deluxe configuration:
A fully automated coolant concentration controller that is compatible with HG1200 units and above, the AC³ will maintain set concentration levels within +/- 0.5% accuracy. The exclusive logic built into the controller allows more or less concentrate to enter the discharge flow of the Guardian system. This comprehensive system provides the necessary intelligence to accurately and automatically inject new concentrate only as needed to maintain optimum ratios and achieve maximum tool life.

Introduction to the Guardian and How it Works
Successful coolant filtration requires three components (1) particulate removal, (2) tramp-oil removal, and (3) coolant concentration control. The Guardian™ Coolant Recycling System incorporates all three elements—not just pieces—for maximum coolant life. This combination makes it the most efficient option for centralized recycling of metalworking cutting fluids. If your current process is labor intensive, requires a lot of downtime for sump maintenance, or lacks the capacity to handle all the fluid, it’s time for a change. In this video, see how the PRAB Guardian recycles your spent cutting fluids to significantly decrease coolant spend and eliminate tramp-oil issues.
The ability to recover valuable cutting fluid from metalworking scrap provides manufacturers the ability to reduce new fluid purchases and other related expenses like haul-away and disposal costs. Because the scrap is separated from the fluid the metalworking operation can also improve the value of its scrap going to the recycler. Companies weighing the options when purchasing new capital […]
If you need a more effective and profitable way to reclaim your metalworking fluid, a modern coolant recycling equipment is the proven answer. Implementing the right fluid reclamation system provides fast ROI and enhances profits, equipment lifespan and employee safety. Costs of Not Filtering Machine Tool Coolant While water comprises most of the coolant, it’s the concentrate in it that […]
