Eriez Hydroflow’s SumpDoc portable inline fluid reclamation machine restores coolant and metalworking fluids in the machine tool sump with minimal operator interface. According to the company, the process does not interrupt the production cycle, and there is no need to transport fluids. The portable unit can be wheeled to a machine tool, parts washer or rinse tank for fluid reclamation.
A sump cleaner (sump vac) removes sludge and solids larger than 50 microns, a pleated bag filter and housing remove solids as small as 10 microns, and a high-speed centrifuge removes emulsified tramp oil and fines as small as 3 to 5 microns. The unit features a continuous-flow tramp oil coalescer, an ozone generator for the microbial treatment of coolants, a coolant makeup system with proportioner, and electrical controls with a touchscreen dashboard..
