Eriez HydroFlow sump cleaners are designed to provide effective, thorough and quick machine cleaning to maintain plant productivity and minimize machine tool downtime. The range of sump cleaners includes drum-top cleaners and reversible liquid vacuums. The heavy-duty industrial wet/dry vacuum filtration units clean many machine tool sumps, tanks and pits.

The company’s drum-top sump cleaner is a vacuum unit which converts an existing open-top drum into a machine tool sump cleaner that sucks up tramp oils, used oil and waste coolants. This advanced unit, which can also remove chips and fines, is an alternative to a dedicated sump cleaner.

The reversible liquid vacuum is another option for sump cleaning or liquid removal. Designed to connect to a closed-head drum, it can also be used to remove lube or hydraulic oils from reservoirs.

Eriez’s sump cleaner is designed to stand up to the toughest challenges in cleaning machine tool sumps, tanks and pits. It removes fluid, sludge and chips from the sump, while a reusable integral filter liner filters the sludge and chips from the fluid. It can be set up to return the filtered fluid to the sump or transport the fluid to a recycling system. The unit’s polypropylene filter sleeve filters to 50 microns. If finer filtration is needed, such as in certain grinding applications, a single-use paper filter sleeve can be inserted into the chip basket, which filters as fine as 20 microns.

  • Troubleshooting Your Way Oil System

    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.

    Minimum quantity lubricant can save money, improve tool life and improve the part finish. But it may involve changes to both the equipment and the processing strategy.

  • A Separator Solves The Tramp Oil Problem

    With their strong attention to routine housekeeping, it's not surprising that this shop carefully researched all methods for removing tramp oil from coolant in machine sumps. If tramp oil is allowed to build up in the coolant, the resulting shop odor, smoke generation and unpleasant conditions for the operators will quickly undermine all efforts to keep a clean shop and maintain an optimum working environment.
