Machinists and shop owners alike know that most metalworking machines require a coolant to keep their tooling parts from overheating and disintegrating over time. We look at coolant as a necessary cost of doing business, but filtering the coolant is viewed as optional. We use coolant to protect the investment in an asset like the machine and its tooling parts, so why not protect your investment in machine coolant. A machine coolant filtration system can pay huge dividends for a shop owner by extending the life of your coolant and your machinery. These devices improve the quality of production while decreasing the need to replace sump tools and coolant. Installing a machine coolant filtration system also decreases potential health risks from degrading coolant. These include smoke and smell. Moreover, by using coolant filtration systems, companies demonstrate their concern for environmental protection by reducing waste. At EdjeTech, we recognize all these factors and help you find the right solution. We offer you choices – like our C.R.O.S.S. (Coolant Recovery Oil Separation System) – or customized systems to meet your company’s unique needs.
Standard or Custom?
Our standard solution to dirty coolant problems is the C.R.O.S.S. It remains an excellent choice for several reasons
- Effectiveness: It removes sump oil to less than 1/4 of 1% by volume
- Efficiency: The centralized coolant filter works constantly providing clean, fresh coolant 24 hours a day available to the shop
- Versatility: The C.R.O.S.S. removes contaminants of various kinds including free oils and solids from a diverse medium such as soluble oil, semi-synthetic, and synthetic machine coolant
- Cost-Effective: Using the C.R.O.S.S. will reduce the time spent on maintenance or replacement of both coolant and sump tools.
Yet, for many, a standard solution is not viable or suitable. Instead, you may require a specific type of machine coolant filtration system. At EdjeTech, you can work with our highly skilled and experienced staff to find the best-customized option available.
The Right Coolant Filtration System for Your Company
At EdjeTech, we consult with our customers on what is the right coolant filtration system for their machinery and situation. We understand that not all machines or systems can operate optimally using a standard coolant filtration and recovery system. As a result, our staff offers a choice between standard and custom-made devices. This allows you to choose what best suits the present and future demands of your equipment.
When you own a metal working business, parts, and equipment need to be tough enough to stand up to the wear and tear your work delivers. Industrial jobs call for heavy equipment, and choosing your vendors poorly can have an effect on your cost of doing business, and over time, your profits.
Products like industrial fluid management systems can be expensive, so these must be built to last. When you need to add or replace this product in your shop, you want to ensure the product is high quality.
Products included in industrial fluid management, like oil water separators and coolant recovery systems are highly specialized and only available from a few vendors. This makes it even more important to choose the right one.
Talk with others in your industry to get an idea about the vendors they use, and then check these out on your own. Be sure to learn as much as you can about the vendor’s reputation in the industry. Do not waste your time on vendors that other companies in your industry avoid.
You can learn a lot from vendor websites, as well, to help narrow down your choices. Once you have one or two in mind, talk with them in person to learn more about their product line.
Price is important, but be sure to compare other items, like quality and customer service, as well. Be sure your vendor is knowledgeable, and that they stay on the cutting edge of technology.
With a little time and effort, you will find the perfect vendor to provide industrial fluid management to your shop. The right vendor can be a great partner in ensuring your shop runs efficiently and in helping you save money. Check out Edjetech today for all your industrial fluid management equipment.
Keeping costs under control is an important part of being a business owner. It is critical to spend time learning how you can reduce costs without negatively affecting your business. If you run a machine shop, there are ways to reduce costs by managing your fluids efficiently. Learning to manage your company’s waste can really save you money.
To better manage your waste and get more life out of your fluids, consider a tramp oil separator. Tramp oil separators offer two primary benefits to your business.
- 1. A tramp oil separator will give your metalworking fluids more life by giving you the ability to recycle the fluid, rather than having to dispose of when it gets dirty. The system removes free floating tramp oil as the fluid passes through. The oil is skimmed off and transferred to a client provided container. The now 99% clean fluid passes back through the original system for reuse. This saves you up to 80% on fluid costs.
- 2. A tramp oil separator dramatically reduces your company’s waste, thereby reducing your disposal costs. Because these fluids must be disposed of in an environmentally friendly fashion, disposal can get expensive.
This one product can save your company thousands of dollars each year. The system is safe, easy to maintain, and easy to install. Your new system will be up and running in no time, without a lot of downtime or hassle. You’ll be able to use it immediately after install.
Talk to your industrial filtration systems vendor today about adding a tramp oil separator to your shop. The upfront investment is very low, and the system will pay for itself quickly. Once the system is paid for, you’ll see savings going right to your bottom line, providing a significant cost reduction to running your business.
