Metalworking has many applications in everyday life. As the owner of a metal working business, you have many opportunities to create products people will use over and over.
The metal working business uses a great deal of fluid for creating products since tooling and equipment must be constantly lubricated. With all of these chemicals in use, it’s important to take measures to ensure you do business in a way that is as environmentally friendly as possible.
The best way to be an environmentally conscious metal worker is to purchase a water oil separator for your business. This machine separates the free and mechanically dispersed oil from the water based cutting fluid used by the machining center, keeping the cutting fluid clean and eliminating many of the adverse effects caused by dirty cutting fluid during the machining process. In the long run, this means your business will have far less fluid for disposal, improved cutting performance, and less coolant concentrate to purchase. You’ll be contributing far less hazardous material than a shop that doesn’t use an water oil separator. You’ll spend far less in material disposal fees, too.
This is good news for your bottom line. Your water oil separator is a one-time equipment investment that you’ll rely on for years to come. You’ll recoup the cost of this investment quickly in the money you’ll save on fluid concentrate and disposal fees. Once you’ve recouped the cost of the water oil separator, the money you saved from increasing coolant life and decreasing disposal costs will go right to your bottom line.
So, be certain you take steps to run an environmentally conscious metal working shop right from the beginning. A water oil separator is a simple investment that will pay for itself by reducing the amount of fluid concentrate you buy and the amount that must be disposed of in the environment.
