The Eriez SumpDoc is an all-in-one portable fluid recycling system designed to completely filter and rejuvenate metalworking fluids in a machine tool sump without interrupting production. The system enables shop personnel to position the unit alongside the machine tool sump and treat the existing coolant while continuing to operate the machine tool.

The portable system consists of hoses, piping and valves to draw the coolant from sump, filter it and return it to the sump to create “scrubbing” turbulence; a continuous-flow tramp oil coalesce; a high-speed centrifuge for removing emulsified oils; a pleated bag filter for removing solids; an air-operated diaphragm pump to draw coolant from sump and pump it through system; a coolant make-up system with proportioner and onboard coolant concentrate tank; simple electrical controls with operator dashboard; five-gallon onboard containers for tramp oil, centrifuge backwash and coolant concentrate/chemical storage; a Microzone generator for microbiological treatment; and a 110-V single-phase control voltage.

    An expensive lesson that many shops learn too late is that the automatic oil system on their CNC machine tool may not be completely automatic. Since the automatic oil system is designed to give a warning when the oil tank is empty, many machinists simply assume all is well if the alarm doesn't go off.

    Bacterial growth in metalworking fluids eventually leads to machine downtime. Furthermore, shop owners and plant managers see an increased cost of purchasing replacement fluids and the disposal of spent fluids.
