Abanaki Corporation’s Tubetastic low-profile oil skimmer has been redesigned for easier maintenance and lower maintenance costs, the company says. The 6-lb oil skimmer is said to easily mount to the side of virtually any machining center coolant sump. Designed to reach inside the coolant sumps of metalworking machines, it can skim oil from regular coolant sumps or totally enclosed machining centers. Its side-mounted design allows it to fit into hard-to-access sumps and drawers with little to no top access. Using an existing opening or through a small access cutout, the unit’s collector tube runs through the surface of the coolant to collect unwanted oils. The oil then flows out the discharge tube into any waste oil container for disposal.

The skimmer removes as much as 1.5 gallons of oil per hour and features a fan-cooled, continuous-duty motor and standard collector tubes with a reach of 6", 12", 18" and 24". Longer lengths are also available, as are 110- to 220-V or 50- to 60-Hz models.
