Portable inline fluid reclamation machine
- Published: May 16, 2018
The Eriez HydroFlow redesigned SumpDoc portable inline fluid reclamation machine was developed based on customer input.
SumpDoc is the only coolant maintenance equipment on the market today that combines both sump cleaning and tramp oil removal in one package. This product line serves as a cost-effective alternative to a central fluid recycling system or batch processing. It supplies complete coolant restoration and rejuvenation treatment of the metalworking fluids in the machine tool sump, with minimal operator interface. There is no interruption in the production cycle or need to transport fluids. The portable SumpDoc can be wheeled next to a machine tool, parts washer or rinse tank to provide full service fluid reclamation in a simple two step process.
The updated SumpDoc is simple to operate, compact and lightweight. The small footprint allows an operator to easily maneuver the unit around the plant and access previously hard to reach sumps without difficulty.
The SumpDoc also features an improved user interface, which makes it possible for plant staff to quickly put the machine into operation and begin realizing the operational and financial benefits of maintaining clean coolant.
The main components of the SumpDoc include: sump cleaner for removal of chips and solids 50-micron and larger; pleated bag filter and housing for removal of solids down to 10 micron; high speed centrifuge for removal of emulsified tramp oil and fines down to three to five micron; an ozone generator for microbiological treatment of coolants; and electrical controls with touch screen dashboard.
