The Turbo-separator T22/RCS is a complete filtration system that recycles grinding and polishing fluids by removing the fine micron particles entrained in the fluid. The centrifuge has a process rate of up to 40 gpm with a solids removal capacity of up to 22 lbs of sludge before changing the liner. The RCS system includes a low-profile dirty and clean tank designed to receive dirty fluids via gravity, and the clean tank includes a multi-pass design, overflow protection and a supply pump for the return of cleaned fluid to the machine tool. The versatile system can be used with a single CNC or in-line with a manufacturing cell. The large capacity bowl liner allows for easy and quick sludge removal. The discharged solids are dry because of a unique bowl design and high rotational speeds that can provide resource recovery for valuable materials such as carbide.
Turbo-separators are in use worldwide for recycling oils, coolants and parts washer fluids. Systems typically provide a payback of less than 2 years. In addition, Turbo-separators provide important productivity benefits, including improved product finish, increased tool efficiency and less maintenance on the machine tool.
