PRAB’s ultrafiltration systems for separating emulsified oils and suspended solids from wastewater and coolant use a hollow fiber, tubular or spiral-wound membrane to achieve required micron filtration levels. According to the company, one of these ultrafiltration systems can reduce oily water volumes by as much as 90 percent without the use of chemical additives. PRAB also says that machine shops can also decrease the cost of wash water detergents by as much as 75 percent and reduce disposal costs by 90 percent.

Standard PRAB ultrafiltration systems can process between 100 and 6,000 gallons per day, with larger systems available upon request. The effluent can typically be discharged to sewer or reused. PRAB ultrafiltration units are available as skid-mounted, fully-automated systems.

  • Long-Lasting Coolant Reduces Costs, Downtime

    This shop provides a case in point of the substantial savings that can be realized with the proper coolant formulation. Rustlick Ultracut Pro, available from ITW Rocol North America, lasted twice as long in the sump than the shop’s previous coolant, leading to significant operating and maintenance cost savings.

  • Alcohol-Based Coolant Offers Environmentally Friendly Machining

    This micro-volume coolant delivery system uses ethanol as the cooling medium for non-ferrous workpieces. The ethanol evaporates after it cools the cutting tool, so no residue is left behind on machined workpieces.

  • Machining Dry Is Worth A Try

    Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
