Tramp-oil separators use gravity flow and coalescence to remove free-floating and mechanically dispersed tramp-oils, bacteria, slime, inverted emulsions, and more from individual machine sumps, central systems, and wash tanks. With a PRAB system you can cut new coolant purchases up to 75%, reduce your hazardous waste volumes up to 90%, and get a payback on your system in as little as 6-9 months.
Tramp-oils allowed to accumulate in a coolant or washwater system will cause operating problems, such as machine downtime, increased tool wear, cleaning and filtering problems. Preventive maintenance and good housekeeping practices help reduce tramp-oils, but they are never completely eliminated.
The PRAB Tramp-Oil Separator extends the production life of oil-based, semi-synthetic, and synthetic coolants as well as alkaline washwaters by removing free-floating and dispersed tramp-oils from the coolant reservoir or central system.
Standard units operate up to 150°F. Higher temperature units available.
