The sump cleaner is designed to clean water-based as well as neat oil coolant tanks of machines/machining centres. Contaminated coolants affect machine tool life by damaging machine parts. Therefore, coolant tanks must be cleaned regularly and this can be a daunting task when done manually. The coolant sump helps save time and enhances productivity by keeping coolant tanks clean, regularly and systematically without assistance. It maintains high level of accuracy and repeatability, so that the machine and its components become more reliable.
The sump cleaner creates a vacuum in the coolant tank, which sucks the contaminated coolant, swarf, dust and so on. These are filtered through a filter bag with a strainer. Clean coolant flows into the tank and the dirt particles/unwanted materials remain in the filter bag. This technology is called offline coolant filtration system. The vacuum discharges the cleaned coolants back into the machine`s coolant tank. This is a highly reliable cleaning process.
