Save Your Skin (And Money) With a Coolant Recycling System

Water soluble coolants used to be an issue for manufacturers. They were experiencing various problems using water soluble coolants, such as dermatitis, which is a red, itchy, scaly rash. This was a continuous battle for them, along with foul sump odors. To make matters worse, the cleaning of the machines were completely up to the operator – creating no consistencies or standards for upkeep.

In a situation like this, the solution is typically only one thing – coolant management. However, replacing coolant can become costly. That is where a coolant recycling system comes into play. Certain ones on the market, like this one here, can cut your coolant waste disposal costs up to 90% and your need to buy new coolant up to 75%.

PRAB provided a solution for coolant recycling just like this for Iowa Industrial Hydraulics. They purchased a Guardian 400 and 175 gallon Sump Cleaner to rid themselves of the never-ending foul odors they were experiencing in the sump, and to save money on their coolant waste disposal. The Guardian coolant recycling system uses three separate principles to recondition metalworking coolants:

  1. Gravity Settling
  2. Filtration
  3. Coalescence

“It is equally effective for washing compounds and other water-soluble mixtures where tramp oils and suspended solids detract from performance,” notes Tim Hanna, Vice President of if Business Development for PRAB’s Fluid Filtration and Wastewater Treatment divisions.

The coolant management and coolant recycling system installed for Iowa Industrial Hydraulics reduced further coolant costs, improved productivity, and drastically reduced dermatitis issues, all while improving profits.
