Many industrial processes such as turning, milling and grinding create smoke from the heat of the machined component along with fine metal particles from flood coolant techniques. The coolant disperses the chips and fines to the sump of the machine tool conveyor.
Yet for all the good that coolant does, it can also present a risk. Coolant can be atomised into airborne particles with the potential risk of inhalation. It can cause a poor quality finish on machined components (simulating a media blast effect if the coolant is not cleaned). And the more coolant that remains on machined chips, the greater the environmental run off risk, and the greater the cost of coolant.
Recycling coolant, however, can limit all the above risks. As modern day machining methods create swarf at an ever faster rate, we provide the machine coolant recycling systems that enable you to clean and recycle as much coolant as possible – so you save money.
Integrated Air Systems coolant recycling machines provide the following benefits to your business:
The precise coolant recycling systems for your workplace will depend on your tools, processes and the volumes of coolant you use, but a typical machine coolant recycling system will work by pumping out and constantly recirculating the coolant. As it travels round the system, the coolant picks up worn metal from the cutting tool and machined component fines collected in the sump.
Wet chips are then centrifuged to remove coolant cutting fluids leaving dry, clean chips that are easier to store and worth more money than dirty, clogged fines and swarf.
Common applications include CNC machining, grinding, polishing, heat treatment, rolling, and wire drawing.
