Guardian Centralized Coolant Recycling Systems


CUT SPENT COOLANT DISPOSAL COSTS UP TO 90%

Remove up to 99% of tramp-oils and suspended solids from contaminated coolant. Continuous overflow process prevents odors and health issues caused by bacteria and rancidity. Recycle coolant at rates from 90 to 1,500 gph (341 to 5 678 lph). PRAB Guardian customers are seeing reduced new purchases up to 75%, and decreased spent coolant disposal costs up to 90%, and a typically system payback in six to nine months.

High Pressure Coolant Filters


EXTEND TOOL LIFE, ELIMINATE CHATTERING, REDUCE HEAT AND MATERIAL BUILDUP

A modular design makes this filter ideal for all types of machining centers. Feed fluid using an existing feed pump from the machine pump into bag filters for 10-micron filtration. High-pressure pump (1,000-PSI or higher) keeps fluid flowing back to machine at 14.5 gpm (55 lpm). Used to flush away chips, eliminate chattering, and reduce heat and material buildup. The resultant clean coolant extends tool life, too.

Paper Bed Filters


REMOVE SOLIDS FROM ALL FREE-FLOWING INDUSTRIAL PROCESS LIQUIDS

Filter ferrous and non-ferrous metals, and organic or non-organic solids-such as glass, rubber, and plastic-perfect for grinding applications. PRAB paper bed filter customers are experiencing improved tool and coolant life. Disposable or permanent paper media produce a positive barrier suitable for low-to-medium stock removal.

Coolant Managers


PROVIDE CONSTANT BACTERIAL CONTROL

The natural choice for eliminating coolant rancidity. Generate and inject ozone directly into coolant for safe and effective bacteria control. Kills fungus and mold, and eliminates coolant sump odors. Applications include water, soluble oils, semi-synthetic coolants, synthetic coolants, and alkaline cleaners.


Mon-a-Vac Vacuum Filtration Systems


LOWER PRODUCTION AND MAINTENANCE COSTS

Eliminate high sludge volume produced in machining centers and grinding applications. Systems use disposable media to maximize contaminant removal. The vacuum chamber draws dirty coolant through the disposable filter media—applying the proven principle of optimal filtration through contaminate or sludge build-up, maximizing filtration as caking builds up on the media. Standard vacuum filter units are available with flow rates up to 3,000 GPM.

PRAB's Mon-a-Matic Vacuum Filtration Systems | Prab.com

Mon-a-Matic Vacuum Filtration Systems


ELIMINATE DISPOSABLE MEDIA AND IMPROVE SURFACE FINISH UP TO 27%

Removes fine particulate down to 10 microns with synthetic filter media to reduce operational costs. Back-flushing keeps the semi-permanent media clean without using large volumes of air. Solids drop from the filter element and settle into a tank where they are removed by an automatic chain drag-out. PRAB Mon-a-Matic customers experience extended tool life and improve surface finishes. Send us your specifications and we’ll customize your unit to the size, capacity, and flow rate you need.


Ultrafiltration Systems


CUT OILY WASTEWATER VOLUMES UP TO 98%

Extend the life of wash and rinse water, while helping to meet zero manifesting goals and comply with federal RCRA requirements, as well as state and local discharge regulations. Separate emulsified oils and suspended solids from wastewater and coolant using hollow fiber, tubular, or spiral-wound membranes. Skid-mounted or fully automated systems are available. Modular design ensures easy expansion as business grows. PRAB Ultrafiltration customers have experienced reduced oily water volumes by as much as 98%, and decreased chemical additive usage up to 75%. Mini-UF and Ultra Mini-UF Systems are also available for small volumes of oily wastewater.
